Bob,

The cord actually ships from Elkhart and Lavanture Products. There are no returns.

Ebay page.

Tag on the cord is 09516 30A 36FT

UL Label C US Listed POWER SUPPLY CORD FOR RECREATIONAL VEHICLE

Molded on the wire is 'E54864 (UL) 10 AGW (5.26mm2) 3/C STW 600v -- FOR RECREATIONAL VEHICLE USE : 30 AMPERES - - CSA LL39753 STWV 60'C FT1'

At least that is a good as I can read the molded info on the cord. There is no into molded into the plug end.

Seems very flexible and molded well.

Dale

Dale,

My new 30amp 36ft long power cord came in today, looks good. Will have to wait until spring to install then see if the additional length will coil into the existing holding area .... may have to modify a little (no big deal).

Wow, that`s a good price on a 36' 10/3 RV cord. Since copper went sky high so did the price of all copper wiring, from Romex to extension cords.

Bob,

Looked into the back of the 322FKS and the box for the cord is stapled very, very well. Looks like 1/2in plywood and will not be easy to take the top of the box off. On one side the water pump is mounted so I'll need to work over top that item. The water fill lines also go over this box.

I'm going to need to extend the rear slide to get enough room for my large body into a small space, in the back closet behind the mirrors, and work on it.

Next is to predrill the holes for screws to put the lid back on the box and find a rubber gasket to use since all of the water is above and around this box. (The outside shower is right near it also.)

Spring, early April, project for sure. First campout is third week of March when we pick up a new (used) unit for a friend and install his Hensley. They want to go local right away so Bishop Lake is the spot where we can run home to get what gets forgotten.

The cord does look good and I'm glad for the purchase.

Dale

I was able to start squeezing real hard a few feet back from the cable end and finally walked the outer shield back up inside the molded connector. then I convered all of that area with some good sealent that has now harden up some. Seems to be working for the time being... At lease I dont have individual wires showing anymore. If I could have gotten the plug off without damage I would have installed some heat shrink after pushing the outer rubber back up inside the connector.

I suppose some folks just cut the end off and install a new plug but that has problems as well. Maybe just go get another 25-30 foot long new molded cable and be done with it???? I think I saw replacement 30AMP cables at Walmart the other day.

It is expensive doing the mod conversion. However, it keeps the mice out of the hole and the cord is no long being damaged by being pulled out and pushed in. Plus the plug doesn't get damaged because that is the easiest thing to hang on to when I pull it out from that mouse hole. I guess every one calls it a mouse hole because the mice love to run up the cord and make nests inside. Especially if you leave it plugged in when your TT is stored.
