Electrical Cap

Anyone has anything to cover the 30a cords? I am looking to cover them while in storage.

The "why" isn't important at this time. I am just looking for a solution.

Confused, Do you mean while still connected to the trailer or disconnected? I put mine in the rear storage compartment when not connected. Suppose you could split a rubber water hose and put over the cord when connected. Personaly I see no reason to do that as the cord is thick, heavy duty rubber coated and designed to be outside in the elements.

Do a Google search for Marine Shore Power Bag.

Give them a light coating of dielectric grease to prevent corrosion.
Or put a quart plastic ziplock freezer bag over them and zip tie it around the cord.

Thank you but not so obvious. My trailer stays plugged in while in storage. Ditto on the dielectric grease, available at an battery, auto parts store or wallyworld. Regularly apply to all electrical connections. Both ends of cord, connection socket on trailer, pig tail connections and tow vehicle plug.
Also good to give the battery post a good coating.

Check out "wire loom" to cover the power cord. This stuff has various diameters and is split along its length to put the desired wires inside. Usually found at auto parts stores.
