MorRyde Easy Reel for 50 AMP power cord

How may of you Cedar Creek owners have the MorRyde Easy Reel? I keep my power cord coiled in a heavy duty laundry basket, only have to uncoil the length needed. Then I slide the basket with the remaining cord under the trailer.

Do you like the Easy Reel? Looks like to me you have to always unreel the entire cord each time.

Just deciding if I need or want one.

Yes have it mounted in the forward compartment. I like it as the cord is not needed at home and a few other places we go so it keeps it wound and out of the way.

It is not an integrated cord reel, so yes you have to pull the entire cord length to use it. Based on the configuration of our compartments, not sure there would be a good way to incorporate one of those integrated cord reels.

Ours was included with the purchase, but I would have bought one after handling that cord one or two times if it was not included.

I went back and forth on this reel also. The 50 amp cordset is new to me this year, and it can be a bear to handle, especially in the cold. I decided to try this one from Harbor Freight. It's under $20 so I figured it was worth a try. So far, so good. It works well and it does what I need it to. Mounted it to the floor of the basement.

Hmmm I have one of these mounted in my garage for my air hose never thought about using it on the 50 amp. My only worry would be when the weather dips here and it gets cold/cool, that 50 amp cord takes on a mind of it's own and gets stiff. Plus would have to find the room and clearance to mount it in the basement plus the clearance to be able to crank it... But it is a good thought....

Since storage is so limited on our Silverback, the cord reel works well for us.

Could you post a photo of it in your storage space. I really like that idea

Mounted in the front left corner with just enough room for the handle ... I heard the newer model has a moveable handle

Unfortunately, I can't get a picture because the RV is at the dealer for repair work. But it's mounted on the driver's side, against the forward partition like RodeoGeorge's.
