    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hello, going to buy a cable for electric hookup. Can I have length recommendations please???

    I've read the longer the better but don't want it taking up tooo much space...!!

    Also read that distances might be longer in Europe than at sites in the UK..?

    Thank you

    Virtually the same here 25m, 10m and 5m for genny.

    I`ve also got a 15m one ( balance from the 10m one ) hard wired into the garage so i don`t have to take the others out when at home.

    25 metres for normal use, extra 25 metres for Aires such as Honfleur where hook ups are often a long way from where you can park and a really long cable for those out of the way places ........

    I carry one of about 15 metres and one of about 5.

    Definitely worth carrying a short one so you don't end up with loads of spare cable on a pitch.
    Adventure before...... something or other.

    I also carry three of different lengths
    Don't forget, they can be joined to make one hell of a long one if required, but make sure the connections are kept dry

    Three long and one reasonable short about 10m. Had to use them all on a UK CL once in bad weather, as all the pitches were unusable, we parked on a bit of hard standing in the entrance and needed all the cables to reach the nearest socket.

    I also carried a continental 2 pin and UK 3 pin very short ones and numerous other adaptors including a 3 way sharing one. Had a reverse polarity one but never used it in anger.

    What ever length you decide if going to Europe I'd suggest a splitter so you can share a outlet as there's usually more vans than outlets
