Like I've got a 30 foot cord on mine and it will reach the front of the trailer. Like the dealer showed me that day some time the cord binds up in the pocket and you might have to rattle it around to get the kinks out but there is close to 30 feet in cord on mine..

My literature only says "power cord, 30 amp shore" Guess the only thing to do is lay it out! I can't find anything anywhere that gives the length.

I carry a 25' extension, but never had to use it. I also carry it is in case I do something stupid and mess up my existing cord, I have a spare while I am on the road. Not that any of us have done something stupid...

Yeah, It might very well be kinked in there, but I have rattled, twisted, and otherwise tried to get more out. But I'm not gonna yank it much.

On mine, the power cord stores inside the wardrobe closet in the bathroom between the trailer's floor and the floor of the closet. Also in that space is my rear low-point drain, HWT bypass valves and HWT. There's a door beneath the wardrobe doors that allows me to get at these and if I shine a light in there, I can see the power cord.

I never tried it but I believe the floor in the wardrobe closet is removable to permit access in case any of the above mentioned items should need replaced or serviced.

I know every model of RV is different, but I would think that if it was designed properly, there is some way of accessing the area where the power cord gets stored- even if just to inspect and check for any "kinks" that may be prohibiting you from extending the cord to its full length.

Bruce you also don't want your power supply running through a lead which is still partially rolled up. If there is a large amount of current running through it, it will become dangerously hot. Leads should always be fully unrolled and left loose on the ground.

Never herd that cord should be pulled all the way out and left loose on the ground. never did that and never had one get hot unless using a light weight cord or maybe if it was kinked real bad but never had any of my TT cords get hot and I only pull out what I need. but I have needed two cords to hook up befor. and about 30 feet of sewer as well I always carry to much fo everthing bad habit.

I think I need to buy a shorter 50 amp cord. The one that came with the trailer is all rolled up on the ground.

Budman, I like that Texas Ranger line. I heard it as a .46. Don't matter. Actually, they've made both!
