Any idea where I can find a short 30A cord for generator use?

Hi,

I'm looking for a short 30Amp cord to use with our generators (2 honda eu2000i, one being the companion with the 30Amp connector)?

I found one on the Furrion site that is 12' and has the marine coupler on both ends, which I think would work. I haven't called yet to see if they will sell directly to me.

Any other thoughts or suggestions welcome. I would actually like something more like 6' if such a thing exists.

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Not sure what will work for your gen but try online at Wholesale Marine. They have lots of pigtails and stuff.

If you can't find what you need you can make one fairly easily. Buy the cord and the connectors and wire it up!

Here's another place.
Again, I don't know what exactly you need but at least you can check some of their stuff out and maybe they have what you need.

Jeff,

I've been looking for a short cord as well. I think that the marine cord you mention is not the same connection as the RV version, but the 12' length would be perfect. I think the only way to go is to make a cord. I would much rather have the molded ends like the cord set that came with my trailer though. I have looked everywhere on line with no luck. Let us know what you come up with.

Camping World has a 25'. Just bought one for the same application. I want to be able to plug into my Honda generators from the back of the trailer to the tailgate of my truck while I'm still hooked up. The factory cord won't quite reach. I worked in the electrical industry for 38 years so I priced the parts to build one, and I could not build it for the $41.99 I paid Camping World. I wish I had thought about Wal Mart having them because the 12' would really be all one needs.

I only found a 25' cord. OP is looking for a short (12') cord. If you find it please post a link.

Hi, any reason that you couldn't just roll up the excess cord and use it that way? Are you concerned with power loss? Why do you want a shorter cord?

ROBERT, wasn't trying to be funny, but have been searching for a short cord-set for quite awhile. Not concerned about power loss. My trailer has the front electrical hook-up and a shorter cord for the generator is much like grabbing the shortest water hose you need. I would like to find a short molded cord-set to keep in the truck with the generator, and leave the 30' trailer cord-set on the trailer. For some reason this is very hard to find item. The marine cord-set mentioned above could be used with adapters, but would not be as clean.

A 10'r would work but it looks like I would still need an adapter on one end.
