Shore Power Cord Reel

My 73 Excella has a shore power cord reel. The contacts in the reel are burned out from a poor connection at a canpground that burned up my 30 amp cord end and the reel contacts. Anyone know who makes this reel and if parts are available? Does anyone know of a fix to repair these contacts?

Often they can be cleaned and repaired. The problem is usually corrosion on the holders or springs, resulting in poor contact with the ring, and then overheating.

No these contacts definetely were damaged due to a serious short circuit in the campground's power outlet. It melted my power cord, 30 AMP male end and fried the contacts in the reel. I spent 3 nights in the middle of January at -15 Celcius with only a space heater run off an extension cord and the stove top for heat until it could be repaired. I have no idea who makes this reel and will need parts for it. I was thinking of taking it to an electrical repair shop abd seeing if they might be able to fix it. The reel is a nice feature and I'm getting tired of shoving the power cord into the compartment around the reel. Any suggestions?
