It is not a difficult job as the wires all color coded
However if you are not sure do not attempt it as you could do some damage if wired wrong.

Please accept my apology for asking for clarification. From my mistake I have learned not to ask questions about things I am not clear about. And i will retreat back into the TT forums and not venture forth to Class A in quest of knowledge for fear of being rebuked.

Not really knowing what type of damage you've done to the cord or the reel I'd suggest a complete inspection of the whole system.

These cords are heavy duty and use 6 gauge wire X 4, there is a lot of tensile strength in this and it could have damaged the reel itself if it got caught.

If you are not comfortable with repairing this I would suggest having someone do it for you. It does not have to be an RV repair service, it could be done by electrical shop. Might cost less if you could leave your rig there.

Hi Paul,


Yep, we live and learn. I'm a week away from 73 myself, and keep doing things just to have the opportunity to learn something new .

This spring we will enter our fifth year as travelers (and learners). Glad your learning experience was not TOO terrible!

Tom

Being an electrical engineer and electrician I would suggest you just simply replace the entire cord and book it up to experience. The existing cord may work for a while then cause problems if the insulation fails.
One thing I always do is a walk around prior to driving off and prior to backing into a camp spot. Check lists are good too as even jumbo jet pilots still run a check list prior to start, taxi and takeoff.

Jim, feel free to hang around awhile, hell, it wasn't obvious to ME what he had, and even if I had a pretty good idea the SMART thing to do would be to clarify exactly what he was talking about (which is what YOU did) instead of bulling straight ahead on ASSumptions that could very well have been invalid! (Sorry about that, the CAPITAL key must have gotten stuck somehow!)

Jim, please don't be offended. Sometimes the printed word doesn't convey the true intent of the poster. There's nothing wrong with asking ANY question! We're all still learning, and this is a great forum to do that!

Don't let this one person push you away from trying to help others.
You will always encounter someone who wants to tell everyone how smart they are and why your not. This site is not built around that type of superior thinking.
