25' long enough?

If you plan to use it in the future, a 30 amp trailer extension cord makes sense. Less voltage drop, and handy for the campsite where the power is 'just out of reach'. Or, like on one trip, the pedestal at my site was fried, and my stock cord barely reached one that worked.

I've installed 30 amp RV outlets at family member homes just to make it easy. Trust me, being in Alabama in the summer at the kid's home needs all 30 amps to keep the AS comfortable....

I've misplaced my power cord stretcher somewhere and needed it a bunch of times. 😀😀😀

My AS 27 came with its standard 25 ft 30 amp cord, which has sufficed on all but one time. The exception, would you believe it, was at the AS factory, in Jackson Center. There, I was parked next to a 30 ft Classic, which used a 50 amp cord. It turned out that both his & my parking sites used the same electrical panel. He used a 50 amp socket; I used a 30 amp socket. The problem was that my 30 amp breaker kept breaking despite however little power I was using. Consequently, I attached a 25 ft, 30 amp extension to my existing cord & plugged it in to an electrical panel a ways away. Result: Consistent, reliable power. If I hadn't had the extension, I could not have reached the other panel & would not have had power as long as my neighbor was using his 50 amp circuit on the same panel.
