macerator pump

Trying to decide how to set up Flojet macerator pump. I need to make an extension cord and it looks like I will need 10 ga wire for a 15 ft. run. Any suggestions on what type of connections to use? It comes with sae to sae quick disconnect but I can't seem to find a pre-made cord in 10ga. that is 15ft. long.
Does anyone know what size wire is used on the cord that comes with the macerator?
I was also told to make sure to use the backflush as the reduced size of the outlet slows the flow and can leave stuff in the tank. So I was thinking that maybe I could run my stinky 3" hose to where my batteries are and hook flojet at end of hose. I would do away with the need for a dc extension and maybe have better flow out of the tank to the macerator. Any thoughts?

I made my extension cord using #10 awg wire and used Anderson connectors. I can run from house batteries or from line running from TV battery to hitch where i also connect hose battery charge line.
I have anderson connectors on all my 12v powered portable devices like compressor. They sllow quick connect to power source and my extension cord fits all.
