50 amp power cord

Our new 321rlts came with a 36' cord. I think a 10' to 15' would work most of the time and would be easier to handle.
Where would be the best place to find one?

I have never been in a CG where a 15' cord would have been long enough. It's not costing you anything to keep the one you have and use it. You will find your self in places where you will need the extra length and you don't have to store an extra cord.

I bought mine at Walmart, but it was only a 30 amp cord, they have a fair selection locally

We have a 30' 50A cord, and it is usually long enough, but once in a while I need a longer one. Be glad you have the extra length. If you find a 15' cord, and carry only it, I guarantee you will someday regret that decision. JMHO

Needing less cord is rarely a problem but an extra 15 or 20 foot can really save the day.

You would have to carry a 30A Shore Power Cable EXTENSION CABLE to hookup on those sites where more than 15-feet was needed. Those are not cheap to have either...



I have probably been to more sites needing something in the 25-foot length more than not...

Hey Bob - yup I noticed that - hopefully the thought process will be the same... My photo turned out pretty large as well. Wish JOF had it where you decide how big the photos are going to be like on RV NET...

How's it going out in God's country... Only see you on ever now and then... Guess you keeping busy

We need to get back out to Texas and visit some grave sites I guess... Wife's family all buried in North Texas somewhere. Even at GOBER, TX...

I think I will make a few trips with the 36' and see how it goes, you guys may be right and I could end up short.
Thanks
Jim
