Overused and Overneglected; Your RV’s Extension Cord

Overused and overneglected…what  is the condition of the  extension cord that you use while RVing? No doubt you have one, maybe two or more. Are they properly stowed, or has it become a rat’s nest of perpetually twisted knots that occupy a corner? How many cables are damaged, missing poles, splayed, shredded, exposing wire? A lot of you have  probably gone through your fair share of cables.  You don’t necessarily have to throw them out. You can fix them yourself. Here’s a word of caution, if you aren’t comfortable with electricity then you’re better off just replacing them, if you’re handy, you might be able to save yourself a few bucks when you accidentally damage one. Here’s a video on how you can fix your own extension cord.

Now, get those cables under control. If you learn how properly organize and roll your extension cords you will save time, effort and space. If you decide not to watch this video, then we are not responsible for any subsequent hair loss.  : )

Trust us, you will really be happy if you can figure out a way to keep your cables and extension cords organized. I’ve seen people literally kicking a coiled mess of an extension cord through a RV park in a final and desperate attempt to untangle the much needed cable. Sadly, this spectacle continued for hours until they were able to get the exact amount of length they needed. Talk about time you’ll never be able to get back. PPL Motorhomes’ advice is to keep those cables neat and in good working order and save yourself a future headache.
