50 Amp Cord

Has anyone seen a 50 AMP 50 foot cord with a twist lock on one end and standard plug on the other end? In other words, this cord, but a 50 footer? Amazon.com: Conntek 14456 36-Foot RV Power Cord RV 50 Amp Male Plug To 50 Amp 125/250 Volt Locking Female Connector: Patio, Lawn & Garden

If anyone can provide a link, I would appreciate it!

That would be a handful. Sure you don't just want to get that one plus an extension?

RV cords a made to order by some, also you can make your own to the length and fittings that you desire. Google "50 amp RV cord" and the world is your oyster.

You are going to have to get 2 shorter cords or go to an electric supply house and order 52 feet of cord and buy whatever ends you want. There is a twist in the cable and the cord caps are oriented for the twist. The female will fit properly on one end and the male will fit on the other end without crossing one conductor over another. You can tell if you have it right by separating the colors and looking at the back of the cord cap.

RV cords are typically found on the shelf in 30 foot lengths.

Remember also loss per linear foot of cable. You may not get 50Amps out of a 50 foot long cord but I believe that the loss would not be that significant.

Home Depot sells the 6/4 wire for $5.40 a foot and you can buy the two ends. Wala.

I think I will have to make my own as some have pointed out. I am using it for my home pad and need 45 feet so I was hoping there was a 50 already made. Guess not....

I carry a 15 ft, 50A extension plus my standard 35 foot shore cord. Works for me.
