Shore Power Cords

I've used Marinco shore power cords for years, and recently saw Furrion as a lower priced entry. Has anyone used them?

Just got a 61' MY and need to get extra 50 A shore power cord, and a reverse Y for those occasions where dockside only has 30 A service.

I think the main thing is to keep a light coating of waterproof grease on the plug to repel corrosion. Green Grease (Omni Lubricants) is best (Practical Sailor Testing--Subscribe!).

Re: Shore Power Cords

If you are near Fort lauderdale, I have a 25 ft, 50 amp cord for sale as well as a reverse "Y"adaptor. Might cost to much to ship a long distance. Both are in good shape, almost new. Came with the boat I bought and do not need them.
