Ok, I got what is going on now, sorry to upset you Steve, so now you just leave the 50 amp cord coiled up when it is cold and adapt a 30 amp extension cord to the 50 amp cord and use that. I got the picture now, carry an extra 30 amp cord in addition to the stiff 50 amp cord and hook them together only using the so much easier to deal with 30 amp cord that now you carry in addition to the stiff 50 amp cord. I am thinking it would be easier and less space/time consuming to just upgrade to a better 50 amp cord.

Not upset at all. I do agree with your take on the problem. One premium cord, well suited to the job.

I never have problems with my 30 amp cord in cool weather, and the friends we camp with that have 50 amp RVs use 30 amp cords too.
Our MH has a Hurricane hydronic heating system which runs on diesel fuel. However, we added a Comfort Hot from Rixen Enterprises that provides 4kW of electric heating capability. As a result, we use the full capabilities of our 50A cord in both summer and winter.
