Thanks to everyone. No room for a reel and I was just trying to figure out something easier for my 71 year old mom. Yep still camping and loving it. first time she has had a trailer with a 50amp service. Conntek makes a 15' cord. May look into that for her...

If you elect to go the short cord with multiple extension route; plan on having a few stacking milk crates (maybe to store the cords in) that you can invert and route the connections over the top to keep them dry and out of the mud (etc).

I have also wrapped the connections in plastic bags to keep them dry when using my long extension cords.

Go to your local electrical supply house and buy some soo cord in #6 wire 4 conductor. Buy the ends and install. you will want to replace your present cord with the new after you use it. MUCH smaller in dia and very flexible even when cold. Its about half of what you can buy a cord for from the stealers(dealers). I have replaced my cord and it is 20 lbs lighter than the factory cord for the same length. You should not have any more connections than nessary, as mentioned in previous posts.
