rvnana,

Here's what I did. It's mounted in my electrical bay. I had always piled junk in there on top of the RV power cord. Now the cord fits fine and I used the vertical space for the compresser. It's not bolted in, but it has no place to gone anyway. Works good for me.

Max,

Is your power cord a 30A or 50A cord? If it's a 50A, I'd appreciate knowing the manufacturer. My coach has a 50A cord that likes to wrestle with me when I store it and doesn't coil at all. It'd be nice to have one that lays flat and leaves room for other items.

Wayne

Hi Wayne--

I made a call for you. My 50 Amp electrical cord is an original item, 36' long.

I called Newmar and they don't know who made it. The first question was "is it a soft cord?" I guess that means it will coil up- "Yes" was my answer.

I told "Craig" you might call him at Newmar parts- 800-731-8300.

The part # is 31354. They have one in stock. Now the RV fun starts $275.93. I told him your not a Newmar guy, he laughed and said ask for him anyway,

Try PPL-- 800-755-4775. I've had real good luck with them, with service and price.

Best of luck,

Thanks Max, I appreciate you taking the time to find that information. I did some looking around also and came up with the attached product; quoted cost is $248 + shipping for a 36 foot cord. Wouldn't be surprised if they were one in the same. At these prices, I think I'm going to learn to wrestle a little better, that and stay out of cold(er) weather too!

There are many 50 Amp, 36' RV cords on the net for half that price. Use google. That is not even using Ebay. Joe

Can someone tell me what I would have to install to power a small truck air horn on my 06 Allegro Bay with 8.1 gas? what type of 12v air compressor would I need to power this thing.

Some years ago (on a former coach) I had an air horn installed at Camping World. It came as a kit with a small compressor and everything needed. Joe

A few posts back, I suggested a Viair compressor. Check their site. They list units for air horns. I plan to get one of their portable kits.

I installed a hose bracket used for garden hoses. I coil the cord onto the bracket one loop at a time.

I picked one of these up yesterday at the Sears store in Bend - on sale for $10 off the $99 listed price - an HONEST and fast 150 PSI - is quieter than other, lower PSI units I've been around, weighs about 25 lbs - and works GREAT!
