Electrical Reel Diagram Needed

I have been some problems with my A/C unit. Turns out, the unit is fine but I am getting too much voltage drop in the trailer when the AC is running. If the trailer was a straight wire, it would not be a problem. It has the fancy electrical reel (Excella 500). In the service manual, I see nothing referring to how the reel can be serviced/etc. I know where it is (as I have rebuilt the plumbing portion of it). I am looking for a breakdown diagram for it. Does anyone have any advice on it? I would rather not disable it, but living in TX life w/o AC is not an option.

If I do hard wire the trailer, would you suggest running 8awg or sticking with the 10awg? My outlet I had wired with 8awg from my breaker box.
