Love it!!! Inexpensive and turns your existing pigtail into a 15' extension cord. Solves the main problem I have with the attached power cord, stuffing it back in during breakdown [often wet and dirty] and pulling it out when it is cold, stiff, and tangled. Several of the little feather things that apparently are intended to shield the opening and mold around the cord have broken off during cold weather pulling or stuffing. Cutting it back to 2 or 3 feet is a solution I had never thought of. Three hi fives!!
PS I've used the replacement 30amp connectors and I agree they are well made and every bit as good or better than the OEM. Used a female 30amp connector when I made up my Honda parallel kit so I could plug my TT pigtail to the paired gens.
