Q: Hello
I have a 20 foot generator cord. Reliance Controls PC3020 20Feet 30 Amp L1430 Generator Power Cord for Up to 7,500Watt Generators. it is too short. Can I buy a second 20 foot cord to extend the original to 40ft? is this safe?

by Patrick Morris from Massachusetts on October 09, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry....

It is not recommended to connect 2 generator power cords together for a longer length. The middle connection point would not be safe or provide a watertight connection. It is recommended to purchase one cord the length you require.

Here is a link to the 40 foot cord we offer....

Q: Where is the Reliance Controls 30-Amp (4-Prong 40-Foot) Generator Power Cord made? Can I be guaranteed the black cord shown?
by Dennis from New Jersey on October 07, 2013

A: Thank you for your inquiry!

Reliance Controls, like many manufacturers has their power cords manufactured at an overseas production facility however, the cords are designed and tested here in the United States.

If you should purchase a PC3040, you will be receiving a black power cord featuring pre-molded cable ends as pictured here.

Q: I'm thinking of buying Reliance 30amp/10circuit switch model# 31410CRK & a 40' power cord. Does power cord come in longer length? Will there be any power loss with 40'(or longer length) cord from 7000W portable generator to switch? Thank you
by Tony from West Virginia on September 13, 2013

A: Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

We currently offer a wide variety of 30 amp power cords ranging from 10' to 100'. While voltage drops may occur over extended distances, it is unlikely that you will experience much loss over a 40' run. Keep in mind however, factors such as the material of the conductor and even the outdoor ambient temperature may have some effect on this variable.

We would not recommend that you use anything longer than the PC3040 if you plan on utilizing most of the generators 7000 watts.

Q: Looking at the Reliance Controls 30-Amp (4-Prong 40-Foot) Generator Power Cord and I see a lot of reviews here and other sites about the yellow 50' cord being substutied. How do I get the black made in the USA one?
by Fred from Connecticut on August 31, 2012

A: There were substitute cords offered last year in September-December due to the demand driven by Hurricane Irene. Stock levels are back to normal again so the cords should be black and the right length now.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: I have an 8000 watt run/10,000 watt surge generator. Do I need a cable rated for 10,000 watts? I only see 7500 watts on your site.
by Anonymous from Massachusetts on August 21, 2011

A: You simply match your power cord to the largest outlet on your generator.

If you have a 50-Amp outlet, you'll need a 50-Amp cord.

The article below explains the concept in detail.

The Reliance Controls PC3040 30 Amp Generator Power Cord is a good value for the price I paid.

I like the factory sealed weather proof plug and receptacle as opposed to me trying to make my own power cord. I also like the fact the this power cord is UL (Underwiters Laboratory) listed for electrical safety. I do not buy any electrically operated equipment unless it is UL listed.

A Great Quality Product At A Great Price
What can you say about a simple 30 amp extension cable other than it is a great quality, at a great price and it arrived fast. What is there not to like about it or Electric Generators Direct.
Pros: Durable, Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Solid
I ordered it around the time I ordered my Briggs & Stratton 7000W 30470 generator.
It hooked up nicely to both the generator and the transfer switch. It was very sturdy.

Generator Cable Just In Time!!!
I ordered my 40 ft, 4 prong generator cable about 1 month ago. Little did I know how soon I would be needing it. Within 1 week of receiving the cable and with it still in the box, Hurricane Sandy made a visit to my neighborhood.

As soon as I lost power, I headed out to my shed, pulled my generator out along with the box with the cable in it. I was a bit nervous about not having opened it yet, but once opened I knew all would be fine.

While my power was out for over 24 hours, my... more

Ordered Pc3040usa Model Got Pc3040china Model
Just received my back ordered PC3040 30 AMP Releliance controls 40 foot power cord. However, the cord I received was not the one pictured or specified on EGD sight. Reliance has substituted a made in China power cord with the same specifications. The cord I received is 50 foot in length, is yellow and has a heavier outside jacket. It probably weighs more than the USA model. I called Reliance, and they said it carries the same warranty as the USA model. I haven't used it yet because I am... more

Generac Gp7500e W/ 30amp Indoor Transfer Switch
I received my new Generac GP7500E generator with 30amp indoor transfer switch and a 4-prong 40 foot power cord. After I assembled the few remaining parts the generator was ready for use so I did a test run, it started right up and ran fine with no issues.
I had a local electrician install the indoor transfer switch and run the 40 foot power cord to the outdoor location where the generator will be used. Although I have not yet used my new generator in a real live backup situation it's now... more
