The reel is nice but if I had continuous problems with the thing after I replaced or rebuilt it then I probably would just wire into the box at the rear and store the cord in the bumper. While there is a ledge the reels sit on, there is probably room to wind the cord up and store it where the reels had been if removed.

i liked the reel but i didnt like the times that junk quit on me labor day weekend in chuchu town . i was soaking wet my wife was giving me the $%^&^& about why i couldnt get this thing fixed.it was about ten pm dark no volt meter jurry riged a light bulb to trouble shoot. six months later in orlando same old same old. last time i was in dolly wood pigeon creek . when i got home it was history . the big green can got it . i didnt give my motor home the chance to leave me swetting i trashed it the first week. lots of room in that compartment , and you got a door to hold it in .. i had a 78 excella 500 and it looked new inside and out. when i sold it the new owner called and wanted the reel if i had it. i really get up tight about a power reel for 30 amps and having 20 amp brushes. i couldnt get 30 amp brushes for that unit. if you ever take one of themapart the wire on the brushes is about 14 agw stranded. o well my 2cents worth. lol

I was lucky that when I had my elec. problem it was not raining. I would have surely electrocuted myself. It was in the low 90's outside and around 99 inside the trailer without A/C. This was my wife's first trip out with me and she was not a happy camper. I've crossed my fingers that nothing happens like that again.
