Why removable power cord?

Question: I see there is an option for a removable power cord. What is the advantage of a power cord being detachable?
Thanks!
John

One less intrusion point for pests and road debris. However remote those odds are.

Also easy to have different lengths on hand.

I'm assuming then that a "non-removable" power cord arrangement is one where the cord is permanently attached and stored in a compartment with the electrical box and then pulled out when needed. The removable power cord, I'm guessing, needs to be stowed in one of the storage spaces in the trailer (i.e. doesn't have it's own compartment where you "feed" it back into the trailer). Is that correct?
Thanks!
John

Correct. I went with the detachable to save on storage space. The detachable can by coiled up and stowed.

I like non-removable because I only pull out what's is necessary so when it comes time to put it away, I only have to wipe mud off the section that was exposed.
Mine coils in the driver-side rear bench where the water heater, pump and electrics are. Tammy advised me not to use that bench for storage.
That's eight years of debris in the photo.

Shouldn't one of the threads about this oft asked question with the same predictable answers be a stickie?

Nobody reads stickies.
I almost didn't respond, but then had to remember that new members come along all the time. Not trying to persuade anybody. Just offering my experience.

Nobody searches threads either. Well over 90% of all new questions aren't new at all, and have been extensively covered in other threads. That's OK though- I don't mind answering or commenting on the same question over and over and over......

Removable vs fixed power cord.

http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f7...ower-cord-2146

screen room, toaster oven and removable power core


I did a search of the Forum. See above for a sampling of the threads. There are about 4 pages of threads to look at

In defense of John it took me a long time to figure out how to use the search function on this Forum. U use the second option under the search drop down function. The one that has Google search in it.

Also not every new forum member is all that used to computers. Also asking questions is a way to introduce yourself and get a "feel" for the Forum. Also, some of us are retired and don't mind pontificating our opinions so we don't mind answering

No tears Robert, you got a gold star with that recent fridge recap. My response might have earned a tin star.
