I went ahead and ordered one 50' 50amp and one 36' 50 amp. might as well get what I need and I already have another 36' 50 amp cable.

Just keep in mind the electrician has to install the right gauge wire. The distance from your home service entrance (your home breaker box) to the outlet that electrician will be installing is as important as the length of your extension cords. The TOTAL distance has to be entered into the voltage drop calculator.

I had my 50 amp plugin installed right next to my outside main breaker box. I only have 2 ft of travel from the box to the plug. Cheap install and I can use it as 50 amp or 30 amp with an adaptor. Might as well go with the 50 amp as you may buy a 50 amp unit down the road, or as I do, use it for my welder. No sense in paying to have the same work done twice.

If your welder is 240 volts better take a look at the references here as to how to wire a 50 amp for rv's. Just a suggestion. May be different.
