Your RV’s cord can be a hassle. It’s one of the last items you put away and one of the first ones to come out, but there just isn’t an easy place to store it. And what if it’s raining?

My final straw was when I pulled it out of the basement in the pouring rain and it caught on my tool bag. And then my bucket of water hose and fittings. And my step stool. And the brand new role of blue shop towels. So now all of my tools were wet and muddy and so were the towels to clean them with. I went searching for a better solution.
