Customer Review

I took this rv extension cord on a nearly 6,000 mile road trip in my 2015 Tesla Model S 85D and this extension cord enabled me to easily reach 240 volt outlets at the 4 friends/families homes we stayed at to charge our car overnight. I used NEMA 10-30 and 14-30 adapters on the end to be able charge from dryer outlets, and just used the extension cord as is to charge from NEMA 14-50 outlets. It is heavy and bulky, but it fits easily into the frunk and we could fit many other things still in the frunk with it.

Totally worth buying and having to greatly expand the charging possibilities. This 30 foot cord along with the gen 1 mobile connector the Tesla came with which is 20 feet long means we can reach outlets up to 50 feet away! We've never needed that, but we have parked out in the driveway of the home before and this cord enables us to reach through the garage and into the laundry room of the home.

The biggest inconvenience is that the cord is real thick and it forces any doorways to remain open by an inch while charging but that's not the cord's fault. As far as extension cords go this cord is quite expensive, but considering how heavy duty it is I think the price is worth it. I was never able to charge at the full 40 amps this cord is capable of due to the circuits I was plugging into all being 30 amps. Charging at 24 amps overnight and this cord was still cold, but that's not saying much.

Our RV requires 50 amp service. We've discovered not every campsite has 50 amp service and we needed an extension. Then we realized a side benefit - because of this extension cord we were able to park our camper in a better location at the farm, too. Win-win. End result this extension has been in use literally every single day since it arrived and was put into service. It has never had a problem, has been very reliable and gives us peace of mind when arriving to a new campsite.

Highly recommend to have on hand, speaking from experience when we realized we needed it we were unable to locate one locally. Quality construction, would definitely buy again if needed.

2. GoWISE Power RV Extension cord

Customer Review

I wanted to install an RV outlet. However, I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars to do so. I saw this RV extension cord and decided to install the RV outlet next to the outside panel and then use this extension cord to get power to the RV by teaming it with the RV's original power cord.

The cord has a heavy jacket and is perfect for my needs. It was also much less expensive to purchase this cord and install the RV outlet farther away from our camping trailer but next to the power panel. It would also be good to carry for those rare times when a campground's power pole is too far from the RV to be able to plug in directly. The only thing I would suggest is to cover the connection if that is done to keep water and dirt out.

This is an excellent choice to extend the electrical cord for your RV/camper. Very durable and strong 6 AWG wire at 25' in length. Unfortunately, the purpose I bought this for (directly to the camper from the power source) did not work so I am using it for an extension. This is 30 AMP male to 30 AMP female standard plug on each end and will not fit directly to the camper. With 90° ends, it makes it easier to plug in and out as well as make more secure than a regular plug. I would definitely purchase again.

Customer Review

These heavy plastic plugs have ample space to route the #6 gauge copper wire that is necessary to carry 50 amperes of current. I found that the screw connectors could be tightened sufficiently to ensure a solid connection. The three finger holes on the back of the plug provide enough grip to pull the plug from a tight receptacle.

Ideally, this plug should be shielded from the weather by the cover on an RV power post. If this plug is used as part of an rv extension cord it should be protected from rain or other moisture with a heavy plastic because it is not weatherproof. The opening for the wire is large enough that some may need to wrap electrical tape around the outer insulation of the wire to ensure a tight grip and to reduce moisture intrusion.
