Which Morryde cord reel for 377?

Looking to take advantage of some black friday sales even before my 377 arrives.

For main electrical cord, which Morryde cord reel model should I be looking at?

Thanks.

Todd

Hi Todd,

I would say the Reel56-001H - Tweety's has the best price I was able to find.

DW just bought one for me for Christmas.

That’s the one I installed a couple of years ago. It makes handling a cold power cord a snap.

For some reason I we under the impression the 2018s came with a reel. Either way, the best mounting job I saw was on the top of the cargo bay next to the utility Bay. The post I saw on it said it worked amazingly in that upside position.

All the photos I've seen online of 2018s for sale, most don't show a reel. Some do, but I think those are dealer installed, like the MORryde drawer. Of course, there is a markup somewhere in the selling price to cover that...

I vaguely remember seeing the upside down install, too. I like that idea. I assume lag bolts into the plywood coach floor?

That type of installation would be very interesting to see.
I haven't been able to find that post yet, so if anyone does, please post a link.

The only one I've found was for installing a power cord real (see post # 15). I don't think this is what you're referring to, is it?

The upside down cord reel was mounted to a piece of plywood which was then screwed into the aluminum floor joists.

Thanks Tom,

You wouldn't happen to know if there's a picture on the forum of this?

Happy Thanksgiving.

Yes there is a picture somewhere but I canít seem to find it. I remember seeing someone do it a while ago. If i remember, his was mounted next to the water bay with the handle on the left.

Happy thanksgiving to you!
