tmmar,
This is on a Sandpiper 376BHOK 5er. I have to take the cord off the reel. The camper plug is between the two back slides. I roll the male end up first because you can hook the prongs under the reel bracket and it holds it tight while you roll it up.

Rodeo,
What is center rolling? Also, the compartment where my electric cord contains the socket where the one end of the cord plugs into and a hole on the bottom to feed the electric cord to the outside to attach to the pedestal.

Find the center of the cord and place it on the spool first and roll both ends in at the same time.

Something that anyone that has been in the military and had to deal with LARGE cables learns very quickly. You do not have to roll the entire cable back up.

GMC4X4 I know I'm late to the party but I have the same trailer and that is an awesome idea for the cord. The forward basement is so small on the 376bhok every little bit of room helps. Did you just screw it directly to the floor? I want to do this.

Awesome idea. Gotta head to harbor freight with a 40 percent coupon

Thanks for sharing

I used mine all last season with a 50 amp cord and it works great. And, yes, I screwed it directly to the floor. It was so cheap I figured if it didn't work, I wasn't out much.

The base of the reel is metal, the floor in the basement of my fiver is wood. I used 4 1/4X1 lag bolts to secure it. It hasn't come loose after a seasons use. It makes dealing with a heavy cord easy.
