50 amp power cord storage

Our 33BD has a 25' 50 amp shore power cord that unscrews from the outlet when not in use. I'm trying to find a simple way to store it so that it's easier to carry/transport by hand and in storage compartment. I did a site search but couldn't find anything. Thanks! Robb

50 amp power cords are real beast. When the weather gets cooler they are worse yet. I don't remember reading of any -good-simple - solution, but I will watch this thread with interest to see if anybody has come up with a good plan.

power cord reel is the best, 2nd is a manual roll up wheel,
3rd is an extension cord holder you wrap around it and carry it...

in the cold you could run a heat line down it to warm it up

Those are nice cord reals, but the cost is crazy expensive. Got to be something cheaper.

25ft/50amp cables

One of mine came with a webbed strap/carrier which I like but I also found a. plastic one at wally world. Brand is Cablewraptor. You roll them up & pick up by handle. They aren't any lighter but much easier to carry.
Various sizes, use on 50, 30, & tv cables & they are inexpensive.

That's a lot cheaper then those reels at Camping world.

That's the one Lloyd. Not only easier to carry but keeps them from unwinding in the basement.

I picked up a large plant container (small tree) free a local garden center. Round container I feed the cord in with a rag in my hand to clean as I go the cord is now "trained" and stores nicely. I can also fit my 30amp in there.

Oh Lloyd !
You probably know me well enough I am Mister google and rarely buy from Camping World, but it's easy to show the possibilities from there
