Electrical Cord Storage

As you can see, from my pictures, my electrical cord gets shoved in under my bathroom sink. By pushing the electrical cord in it has caused the paneling, under the sink, to pop off stripping the screw holes. I was wondering if there is a cord reel or something that can be placed in that area to keep it neat and from pushing out the panel.

The area is too small for a cord real. the only real fix is to cut the cord and install a weatherproof locking ring outlet on the side of you trailer and a matching cord cap on the end of your shore power cord and store you cord in a 5 gal bucket or milk crate else where. Then you can use this area for more storage by installing a door. I intend to do this very thing to my trailer this summer when I get back to camp.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

I agree with Cavie, You should consider cutting the cord and adding a plug and receptacle.
I did that to our RV, and I also upgraded it to 50 amp service.

Don't you have a pass-through compartment? That's where I put mine.
