    5Perfect for big generators
    By Kevin Nicholls
    I like to keep my generator as far away from my house as possible, during outages. I knew I needed about 40 - 50 feet, but had a rough time finding a decent quality cable that could handle my generator's load for under $200.

    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.

    5Great Cord
    By Jimbo
    When paired with an electric generator, this is an excellent cord. It is made with #10 wire and is easy to coil and store. A high quality item that is cheaper than the shorter cords.

    5Top quality cord
    By Victor H. Agresti
    Reliance Controls PC3040 40-Feet 30-Amp L14-30 Generator Power Cord

    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.
