Storing Power Cord in Heritage Glen 272RLIS

Even though we love our 2015 HG 272RLIS..my only issue is the power cord....With my previous TT (Keystone Bullet 278RLS) the cord was pulled from within the unit from the back end of the unit and pushed back in with ease; with the HG the power cord has to be rolled and stored, occupying a big chunk of the storage compartment. I tried to use the bumper "tunnel" but the cord is too long to be stored there. I'll try to create some kind of under frame storage for the power cord, but if someone out there already has a "Mod" where they store the power cord, please let me know!!
Thanks
Freddy

Before cord reels, I pulled the cord and stowed it in a plastic bin in the truck bed. No issues and ez to get in and out when needed.

we coil our 50a cord plus a 40' extension and surge protecter in a 5 gal pail.Startfrom the disconnect , leave 5' or so out of the pail,and coilt the rest FROM the post,so you can just pull the cord out of the pail as needed.

We have the sister, Hemi 272RLIS. No good solution. I'm currently just eating space in the front, but plan on installing a couple of 5" plastic fence post for storage of the sewer and power cord. Plenty of post on the forum regarding the "fence post sewer holders". I may just go with 3 and make one for the water hoses as well.

Thanks...I also added a plastic,round storage compartment under the bumper to store the water hose (will post some pics), and use the bumper for the sewer hoses. I might add some mod under the unit on the side for the power cord. will post pics when done. First will install some LED lights to the awning before Labor day weekend trip. As you noticed, when you open the slide, it covers half of the lights and the "patio" becomes dark.

I just coil mine up and put it in storage. Takes up space but it is what it is
