Personally, I try not to mess with electrical stuff--especially cutting a 50-amp cord. The last thing I need is to have an electrical malfunction and my trailer is fried, due to a bad or shorted out cord. Plus, one would think that the TT's warranty can be voided as well. If I don't have a reel, I will be labored myself and wind it up manually--heavy weight and all.
