Being able to power your RV while traveling is an essential. If your shore cord is damaged or stolen, you have options as far as what kind of replacement cord you can purchase. There are two different styles and depending on your RV it may require a small or larger amount of amps to power it.
There are two different amp rating shore cords available.
• Option one: 30-amp cord that can provide power for a smaller to average sized RV.
• Option two: 50-amp cord that is able to provide power for an average to larger sized RV.
There are two different styles that are available for replacement cords as well.
• Option one: A detachable cord that is plugged into both the RV and outlet allows you to easily detach and secure the cord. This type of shore cord can easily be replaced.
• Option two: Cord that can be wired directly to the Junction box (the RVs power wiring box) in the RV. In older RVs the cord has to be bunched into a small compartment while in newer RVs there is now a retractable cord roller for easy secure.
Each amp rating can be found in two styles, so it comes down to what is going to meet your needs. Now that you have determined what replacement cord you are going to buy, how are you going to protect it?

Being in an environment in which I can problem solve is where I flourish. Every answer to a problem leads me to a new concept to understand or a lesson to learn. Whem I'm not solving problems I enjoy camping and going to festivals with my family - from the local city center festivals to the mountains of Wenatchee at the Winter Grass, blue grass music festival. Experiencing culture is where my heart is content.
