Just as I was about to make my own cable, I stumbled across this and gave it a shot. I figured, worst case, I'm looking at return shipping to Amazon.
Well, I got lucky twice. This cable is 10 gage (not 12, as described), which was EXACTLY what I was going to make myself. That put it totally within spec for my 8,500 watt generator. And the second stroke of luck? This thing is HEAVY! Total quality here, and I couldn't be happier.
If you bought one of the Reliance Controls transfer switches, this is just what you need if you find the included 20' cable isn't quite enough.
This is a high-quality 10 gage 4-conductor power cord, with an excellent molded plug and receptacle. Just as importantly, the sheathing is [black] rubber, so the cord remains flexible in very cold weather. If you receive a cord different from this description (as did one reviewer), e.g., not rubber, I'd suggest returning it. That rubber sheathing makes this this top-quality choice.
If you need a 40 foot generator cord and your generator has a NEMA L14-30 receptacle, this is an excellent choice.
While the plug end of this cord plugs into your generator, the receptacle end typically plugs into a box mounted on your house such as the Reliance Controls PB30 L14-30 30 Amp Generator Power Cord Inlet Box. See Customer Images.
Upon closer inspection I see that this cord is NOT made by Reliance Controls, and is NOT rated at -40c (-40F) like my Reliance Controls cord is, but rather it says 60c (140F) on it! This cord is NOT MADE for cold weather. While I appreciate the great price of $99 for this cord, I do NOT appreciate being DUPED by Amazon or whoever is responsible. I would have gladly paid more money for the cord that I wanted. Shame on AMAZON for MISREPRESENTATION!
Buyer beware! The cord selling for $99 is NOT made by Reliance Controls, and is not of the same quality.
The cord I received was made in China (of course) and seemed to me to be more generic than the Reliance Controls Brand I was expecting.
While the cord is heavy duty, extra long and will do the job, I was a little disappointed I did not receive exactly what I ordered. I kept it because I can use the extra length and the price was ok....
