Based on all of the reports, and after watching the video, I ordered one of the Mor-Ryde reels tonight. On sale for $154 @ PPL.

A friend of mine owns a Media Relations company
Does field work for Good Morning Mmerica etc.
Has miles of heavy gauge cord to coil and store
This is the trick he taught me and it works great
Never kinks or tangle and unreels everytime

I have a friend in the hvac business- I bit the bullet and bought an expensive 50 amp cord that is much smaller in diameter and very flexible , even in very cold weather- I also bought the appropriate ends at an rv dealership and had my friend install the ends on the cord- I have never regretted that decision and only wish I had done it sooner- JMHO- DD

My unit stays plugged in at home. So the only time I have to do anything with it is the trips to the campground. Since the last thing I do is unplug the unit when we leave, I simply wipe it down and feed it into the back of the pickup in front of the tailgate. First thing I do when I park at the campground and get the side to side leveling down, is plug in the unit. Coil any excess on the ground and away we go. I guess a cord reel would be nice but I don't have the space nor do I want to expend that amount on a reel. I like the idea above of the thinner diameter cord. What is "expensive" Diesel Donnie???

I guess we don't even think about this any more with the 30amp. Once in great while wife goes "opp" and I have to go reset at the pedestal. My 30amp cord was also a left over from the prior 5W and the $30 adapter worked well for our usage. Triple digit temp and the 50amp gets drug out
