Toad Coiled Cable Options

I finally got around to getting all of the necessary stuff to make My Jeep a Toad and I got everything but an adapter cable from the motor home to the Jeep. The motor home has a 7 blade output and the Jeep will have a 4 flat.

I'm thinking that the following cable adapter will work and be long enough. I really like the Hopkins cables that light up, but couldn't find one longer than 3 feet. It looks like the Wesbar extends to 4 feet.

Am I good to go with this one:

Looks good to me-3' should be more than enough. Here's our setup

Thanks for the reply. You have the same Blue Ox base plate that I have, but I went with the Hopkins 56200 wiring kit since I liked the 4-flat better than the round connector up front. I really wanted to go with a removable or more of a hidden base plate since we go wheeling, but I got a heck of a deal for the base plate, Alpha tow bar, and Brake Buddy and couldn't pass it. I'm just now installing the base plate, but I did a quick measure from the MH to the Jeep and 3' will be really tight. I believe I need 4' or more, but I wanted to make sure with other similar setups first.

I'm not saying you have to buy one this expensive, but I searched semi trailer electrical cord. You could find one in your budget and cut the ends and use whatever ends you like. Most extend to 15' or so.
