If we're traveling and it's cold, I put it in the back of the cab. The seat is up and I wrestle it in. When we get somewhere the cord is warm so it will straighten out easily.

We like to camp in warm weather so we store ours like this;

Easy, clean and no more wrestling around like we use to do.

My 2 previous 5'ers were 30 amp. The first was hard wired and just stuffed the cord into its dedicated compartment. The second I just curled the cord and put it in a covered stackable tote box. When we got the Pinnacle with 50 amp this fall, I just looped it on the J hook that came in the basement. I have since purchased a Mor Ryde reel from PPL over the internet. Best price I could find, comparable to factory installed one. Installed in just a few minutes with 4 supplied screws. I like it because one can wipe the cord with a rag while reeling it in. I also purchased a 50 amp to 30 amp pigtail online from a marine place I can't remember the name of. It works great and I use it at home especially to hook my 30 amp extension cord to. Makes for a much lighter hook up when you only need or want a 30 amp hook up.
