    30amp 50’ Power Cord

    My shore power cord is getting a bit tired. Trying to find a good price, but no luck yet. Everywhere is $80-90, I’m sure I didn’t pay that much last time?

    The cost of copper has gone way up in the last few years.

        This is about as cheap as you are going to get. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Conntek-171....c100005.m1851

          I will not even tell how much a 50' 125/250 cord costs these days, makes this one look like a super bargain.

            Try www.elecordset.com, they make High Tide Cords. I have had good luck with them, way less expensive than others.

                    Of course it begs the question, when was the last time. I always have a hard time believing how long ago something was when I think it was only a few years. Seems to get worse as I get older😳

                        I looked up the elecordset web site and found a price around $150 for a 30 amp/50 foot cord. WM was around $90. Did I miss something?

                          I have replaced a few of these. The old style Marinco with the threaded coupling lock has proven much better than the new “clam clamp” lock system.
                          I run two cords & a “Y” at 2&3.
                          Mine have either gotten nasty from salt & sun or scorched from loose connection.
                          The cords are the same for RV and may prove moderately less but quality usually is a little more $.

                            Regarding cords: buying a used cord is a 'crapshoot' since you don't know the real condition or how it was treated. It's all about corrosion, resistance, and heat....drop a cord in seawater, get corrosion, you will get a heat resistance and run the risk of a fire....not worth trying to save a few bucks, buy a good quality marine cord. I took one of my old cords that came with the boat, ends looked good, but decided to investigate and stripped open the wire after cutting off the cord end....was able to trace corrosion about 3 feet up the cord!!!! Like I said, most people have enough invested in their boats that it's not worth it to go cheap on an item like this! Another tip: look carefully at both of your cord end connectors, they should be clean, dry, and corrosion/no black from 'burn' condition. and look at the connectors on the dock pedestal and boat inlets....remember, fire is no fun in a marina!

                              Totally agree with capnken. Taking advantage that we talk about wiring. I plan to replace part of the electrical installation of the instrument panel and I would like to respect the color of the cables. Here in Europe they are not found. Any idea how to get them?
