anaconda question

We have seen newer rigs with smaller diameter shore power cords. Does anyone have any info on them? Are they 50 amp only, etc. We like the looks of them because they look a little lighter and easier to handle. Looking forward to the replies

We used a 30 amp cord with a 50/30 adapter we got from Camping World.

Marinco makes a Marine 50 amp cord that is considerably lighter than the Anaconda we have, however, one will pay dearly for one of these with the proper connections. This is on my "Want" list and I will use a dogbone adapter when on 30 amp service.

I have both Marinco 30 amp and 50 amp yellow cords. The 50 is heavy, but not as heavy as the black one that came with the 5er. It is also more flexible. The 30 amp is MUCH lighter. We had a break-in and my black 50 was stolen (along with a few other things). Maybe they did me a favor. But the Marinco 50 did cost $278 (no tax, free shipping). The 30 amp cable was only about $110.
We often stay in parks with only 30 amp service and the lighter 30 amp cord is nice for that.
