Question Four-Electrical Cord

Here's a question I should have asked the dealer but just happened to think of it and didn't want to forget and go camping and find out I didn't have one.

When you purchase the camper does it come with the electrical cord or do we have to purchase that separately.

I think I'm almost out of question so I'll give you folks a rest.

It should have an electrical cord with it. Most cases it will NOT come with the white rv water hose or, if you need one, a sewer hose. Also, most dealers will include a battery and propane tank(s) full of propane.

Mine came with a 30' 30 amp cord attached, I bought a 25' 30 amp extension cord just in case.

Better to have it and not need it

I'm a bit concerned the dealer did not do any walk through with you based on your question. What sort of training or instruction did they provide? Things only get more complicated after "where's the cord?"

With both our RVs we got the "starter pack" from the dealer that includes a white water hose for fresh water.

There's also a pressure regulator, a couple of rolls of RV bathroom tissue, a cheap sewer hose, a 30 amp to 115 adapter, a few chemical packs and a packet of disposable gloves.

If your dealer doesn't offer it up front, ask for it.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?

The trailer's elecrrical cord is located on the other side of your A Frame, not the door side My cord is stored behind a small plastic circular door. You have to pop open the little door and you will find your cord tucked inside.

I do recommend you purchase an extension cord because there are times when that 25 ft cord on your trailer just wont reach the power box. I carry a 10 guage 50 ft cord because the places I go in the trailer cant always be counted on having convenient power. One show I went to did not guarantee power available but if you could reach it from your assigned spot, you could have it.

If you didnt have a walkthru, you should call the dealer and request an appointment for their service tech to walk your thru the operation of your trailer.

Morning Everybody

I guess I have too many different posts going. In one of my other posts I mentioned that my wife and I visited Toppers yesterday to look at the campers...I also mentioned that we didn't have a lot of spare time since my wife had a doctors we sort of rushed in...had a sales person show us the campers...set one up and take it down to show my wife how easy it was...looked over the floor plans.

I haven't actually bought that camper yet although they have one which we like. We also didn't give them a chance to really do a walk through...our fault due to time restraints not theirs. I'm sure they will do a walkthrough when we actually purchase.

The reason I asked about the cord was that we have a 30' travel trailer and it sits on some property we have at Lake Livingston. (We don't tow it) Went up there one day to use the travel trailer and some person that needed money really bad cut our power cord for the copper. So I installed a different plug and now carry the power cord with us.

So I didn't know if the cords were mounted permanent or portable.

Thanks for all the replys. Going today to schedule to have my brakes and 7 wire harness installed in the Durango.
