I know I should clean and 303 my shore power
cords every month, but it's way down on my list of priorities. Consequently, my cords had become faded, dirty, and sticky. The really annoying part was that they left marks on the boat
, wherever they touched it.
I considered new cords, but I am of Scottish descent, so I looked around for an alternative, less expensive, solution.
I found this:
Wang-Data PET Orange Braided Cable Sleeve 1 inch X 100ft (1" X 100')
$21.99. Fits perfectly and I think it looks great. No more stickiness or marks. I worried that it might disintegrate in the Florida
sun, but after six months, so far so good.
You do need a hot knife to cut it.
