I purchased the Furrion FCKIT30-PS 30A RV Conversion Kit from Campingworld and installed it. Go to Amazon and search for Furrion FCKIT30-PS 30A RV Conversion Kit if you want to see it. It list for something like $78 but well worth the money.

I agree, the cord in my class C is a class A pain in my A$$! I too plan on cutting the cord and do a modification using the marine type external plug socket Just to make it easier on my back. I Donít know about over heating the cord while coiled up but I always sway on the way of caution. Having said that, there is plenty of info and YouTube out there showing over heated, burnt up plug ends. And thatís alarming!

I just installed the ParkPower by Marinco 30ARVKIT 30 Amp. The main reason was because of the pain in pulling the chord out and even worse, trying to stuff it back in. No more wrestling with the chord.

That is what we do, though at home, parked in the drive, I need almost all of the cord to reach my outlet anyway. And frankly, I quit using the little hole a while back. I just pull out the cord and partially close the door to the cable compartment. If we ever stay in one place longer than a couple of nights, I might feed it thru the hole. I also keep an old hand towel inside so when I am stuffing cable back inside, I run it through the towel to wipe off moisture and/or grit. So far so good.

Now if I would just stop forgetting to unplug when I drive off...

It's absolutely in the manual. I read it specifically in my manual. Jayco says to pull the coed completely out in it.

You are correct, i finally found it in manual page 78, i wonder if jayco is covering themselves for liability. Email from tech. Support says to pull out just what you need to connect to shore power, interesting...
