Help with Retractable Power Cord Reel 1978 Excella

I have just purchased a 1978 Excella. I did not get much info when I purchased it. Been looking at the book and online, but cant seem to find what I'm looking for.
It has a Retractable Cord Reel that has both the water line and the shore power cord.
The head of the power cord looks a bit melted. Do I need a whole new cord? And if so, How do I find where the roller exactly is?
Or can I just replace the head?
Does anyone else have this type of set up? Every other one I look at has a different kind of outlet for Shore power.
Thank you!

Welcome to the Forums.

The reels are nice! Our Classic motorhome has one.

Just replace the plug:

Amazon, or others...
