Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveR 40' Generator 30 amp ext cord
I purchased a 40' Generator 30 amp ext cord from Home depot on line, wasn't sure of the quality. Once I received the extension cord and used it I am very pleased. It's better than I thought when I made the purchase. Highly recommended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian A very good generator power cord
It is a very good and heavy duty generator power cord. It works well, and has good connection to the Transfer switch power inlet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM Good quality and well constructed.
This cord is well made and heavy duty. This will be used on a stand-by generator.

What more can you expect from an extension cord, other than it's quality

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SpokaneEd Returned it
Returned it because it was the wrong cord for the generator I purchased. Otherwise, it's a power cord, for heaven's sake...not much to say other than that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Emergency Cable is well built
Product has not been used yet, only checked for attachment to home and generator. It's quality leaves not doubt in my mind it will work perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by faroone Reliance 40 foot power cord
With the Reliance Transfer Switch Kit you get a lousy 10 foot power cord. It has very little use except for testing the installation of the transfer switch. I had the transfer switch professionally installed and we did use it for exactly that reason.
For my set up I needed at least a 25 foot cord to locate the generator where it will be dry (if it rains) and I will be safe from the exhaust. I bought a third party, off the shelf, 25 foot cord at Home Depot. I could not get it to twist lock to the inlet box so I returned it. At this point I decided to get a Reliance Cord so I could be confident that it would connect.
My 10 foot Reliance cord is a bit difficult to connect to the inlet box. One must push the cord hard against the inlet box to get it to twist lock. I did not have a problem with this 40 foot cord. It connects easily, but solidly. Both the 10 foot and 40 foot cable end connectors should be the same. This may be due to production variation, and I just got lucky with the 40 foot cord.
I was trying to get the shortest cord that would meet my needs to minimize voltage drop. I already have about 60 feet of wiring running through my house to get to the transfer switch, and my generator could push as much as 7000 watts through the line. I could have bought a Reliance 20 foot cord and connected it to 10 foot, saving a few bucks. My setup has the generator in a dry location and the inlet box in a dry location. However, the in-between area could get wet. Therefore, the connection of the two cords could get wet. Also the connection point can have higher voltage drop than a few feet of cable so I opted for the 40 foot cable. I checked out my voltage loss and I should be OK.
Having the few feet more cable than I needed ended up being helpful
