Short Power Cord

Anyone know where to purchase (I can fabricate, but choose not to) a short (10' preferred, 15'max) 30amp Power cord? I have plenty 25, 35, ... Some I've seen on line have wrong plug ends and even those cost more than a standard 25' power cord. It is to connect generator to TT plug in.

What 30 amp ends do you want?
Some generators have twist locks for the 30 amp/110v output, some have R/V style 30 amp.
I'm assuming you want the female 30 amp twist lock for the TT?

15 foot looks to be as short as you can get.

Unfortunately, that is the WRONG type of cord - It is an extension NOT a power cord. I will probably manufacture one myself if one is not available.

Need standard power cord - 3 prong 30Amp male for generator & std 30amp twistlock for TT.

Yes, Exactly - on the plug ends. Color, Led, ... optional

That's a tough one to find that short.

I wound up splitting a 25 footer to make mine.

I bought a standard 30 amp male plug and standard 30 amp female socket and made a 10' 30 amp shore cord from one half and a 10' extension, from the other. Still have the 5' piece laying around for something just not sure what.

I may have to resort to that too, but already have extensions. I'll just add a male plug to the 10' from the TT locking end. With the apparent demand, I am surprised it is not readily available.


So who has the least expensive 25' standard power cord? I'll probably get the male end from Lowes or HD.
