Extension Cord purchase ow
Dang - it was a purchase I hadnt counted on.
I kept the cord I purchased for my new (back then) 2005 Jayco TT. That many years ago for the heavy duty construction grade, weather/water resistant (Rigid brand) 50' 10 gauge cord, cost was 75-. I have to say, The cord is still so awesome - incredibly flexible even after all these years of constant weather exposure, the rubber casing is not even cracked or hard, its been run over more times than I can count.
DH has adopted this cord (for shop use) last Fall after we put the A Frame away for the winter and dont think he'll give it up easily. haha So, today I decided it was probably best if I just bought a new one. OUCH! The same cord now cost 96-. The cost of peace of mind (DH keeps old cord, I get new one) of having enough length of shore power at the dog shows is worth it.
We dont take an extension cord if we are staying at a campground because the trailer's 25' on board cord is long enough to reach the power source....otherwise (same reason as for the dog show) we bring the generator.
Do many of you bring along an extension cord?
