Shore Power Storage Ideas

Another Newbie question, my shore power cable has its own little dedicated storage shelf, this has the hatch so you can thread it through so you can close the compartment.
My question, when pulling out almost all the shore line (To run to my garage) is there an easier way to get the cord coiled up again in that little cubby hole. I can do it, but its a small pain to curl the wire to get it in a nice little pile. The shelf is just about the size of the full coil of line, not much extra room. I looked into the shelf area and I did not see the other end of the cord to unplug, thinking that might be a way. I have seen the cool electric reels that coil it up automatically but that's going to be to expensive to install. Any of you guys have any ideas for this.
It's not a big deal, just thought maybe someone has a clever idea.

I have similar setup. I have thought about making the cord detachable by cutting it near the coach end and adding connectors inline. Then store the cord in same or another bin that offers more room. Then easier to connect by just running the end up the entry hole. This would also allow my Progressive EMS to be kept inside for security.
