Wink 50 amp cord storage

What are some of the ways you store the 50amp power cord. The thing is so heavy and that's the only problem I have when setting up or demobilize

I stretch mine out and coil it into a roll about 18" in diameter. Then I secure it with a couple of ball type bungee cords and swing it into the front side compartment. No getting around the fact that it's a heavy bugger. And it coils better in warm weather.

I just roll it up and put it in the bed of the truck behind the hitch, we will need it at the next stop when we setup.

I keep mine coiled up in a round plastic laundry basket.

I wind mine up in a square milk crate type container. I would guess that a round laundry basket would work just as we'll if not better. I might try that.

I have 2 of the oblong milk cartons, 1 for each of the 2 50 amp cords we carry- If you wish to spend some $; smaller, lighter weight, more flexible cord is available at electrician supply houses- It will roll up into a small circle in the coldest weather we have endured- JMHO- DD

Mine rarely comes out of the storage compartment. I most often use a 30 amp cable that suits us for most of our needs. That Annaconda of a 50 amp cable is just to dang heavy to be fighting. Most of our needs are within the capability of the 30 amp connection.
