Extension to shore power cord

Any recommendations out there on extensions for the 30-ft shore power cord that came with the unit? The plug is on the back end above the bumper and due to configuration of 6 slides (2018 3730 FL) I need to back in farther than usual to avoid some trees - but now I need an extension for the shore power. Suggestions or experiences?
Thanks,
Max

Bought one of these several years ago. Don't need to use it often, but sure is nice having it when we do need it. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...ion-cord/95704

Cords are also available at Tweety's, Adventure RV, and most RV parts sellers. We have never needed one although we have come close a couple of times.

I have a 50 amp extension cord that has thousands of miles on it. Only used it once, but when you need it you need it. I needed mine at a CG that was located right on a river. The problem was the spaces were set up for MHs, so their windshields faced the water. With an RL Montana, I had to park in the space what they would call 'backwards' to have my big picture window facing the river. It required electric and sewer hose extensions...and a long water hose.

You can get then at C\W or most any RV parts house they are handy when you need it I have one only used 2 times in about 10 years but always have it on hand just in case.

Just make sure you get a good heavy one so it can carry the load without loosing a lot or overheating. We carry a 25' one and as stated above have only used it a couple of times, but when you need it you need it.
