I'm definitely looking forward to ours. Months and months of looking at all the manufacturers and doing research. My wife was completely done with the entire process on deciding who would be "the one." When we found DRV, it was the first manufacturer where I liked the "foundation," and engineering, and she actually liked all the shiny stuff. While it sucks that it's going to be about a month late on its delivery, I did tell the DRV rep that I'd rather it be built correctly, not quickly. The 41 can't come soon enough though, as the 21 foot living quarters of the Wolf Pack hunting rig aren't getting any bigger...

I don't know what brand; of power cord; that Newmar used in my vintage coach , but the compound is flexible at all temperatures, at least down to 15f the coldest I've had to roll it up. Way easier than the cable on my last 5er.
Handling the cord , it's obvious that the insulation compound is closer to rubber than the near plastic insulation that some cords come with.
Yep, same with our previous Dutch Star and now the Magna. Cord is very flexible for such a monster. The 30' extension cord I bought years ago from CW is also very flexible

Great flexible power cords, EVEN in cold weather, Glendinning Products. Little more expensive than your basic RV power cord but for me it was well worth the money. You choose the length then you have to purchase the female end and install that yourself after you receive the cord.

I can build that same length 36' cord for about $100-110.

I think I am going to buy a large spool of the 50A SO cord and Camco ends and sell the length to people that they want for a little side business altho e full time parks I frequent.

I'm not sure our small town will have what I need. Have you found an online source for it? I couldn't find much.

I did not see any great pricing. Electrical supply seems to be the best.

I just wanted to give Cummins12V98, whoever and wherever you are, a big thanks for the suggestion for the new electrical cable. I finally got by an electrical supply Thursday and they had the exact cord you show in your pictures for $2.57 a foot. I bought 30 feet of it, took the female end that attaches to the trailer off the old cord and bought a new male end at an rv supply. For around $110 I am done and what a difference in the cord's weight, diameter and flexibility. I have retired the old one and should have a much easier time managing the new one on our September Colorado and November Branson trips.

My connection is real slow where I am, will try tonight or tomorrow to post pics. The wholesale cost is about $1.80 per foot. Nice part is you buy the length you need!

I love reading about good tips and post what has worked well for me!

Happy to help. What is amazing is the better quality cord is smaller in diameter.
