Our owners manual states to do the same, pull all the way out. Do not coil cord or let it over lap.

I've read that also and don't know why they say that. 30A through #10 wire isn't going to generate any appreciable amount of heat unless you have some bad connections and that need to be addressed, and at 60 hz, you aren't going to generate any kind of inductive field, and even if you did, on shore power, so what?

In my owners manual under a Warning pull all the way out. I am sure the engineers did some research on this matter. Wife and I don't need any problems like burning up the Jayco. Makes for a bad day. Later Ernie

Seann45 is absolutely correct. When I was in the Army at Ft. Lewis, we were working in large trailers that contained a mainframe computer system.
The power cables to these vans were about 3" in diameter and carrying 240V.
Of course since we were Army, the cables had to be coiled up very neatly.
We soon found that the cables got really hot. After uncoiling them they remained much cooler.

on our walkthru at the dealer they told us to always fully extend the power cord, overheating was the reason.
