    The power cord on our PUP hides in a cabinet inside that has a hole for access to a site's power pole. The cord just winds up into a coil in the cabinet and is a pain in the butt to put away when breaking down to leave. Is there a reel that I can put into the cabinet to make this easier to do on my own? Or maybe I need to build something to solve this? How do y'all deal with this thing?

    If there's a thread already talking about this, just let me know. I didn't find it when I was searching.

    I plan on doing that mod (detachable) in the spring. It's the way to go for dry-camping as it sheds 10 lbs and frees up storage space.

    TJW: I think that will be a bit big for under the storage seat of a pup...


    I have 2 of these (1 for pup power, second for Air cond. cord): LINK to Ace Hardware.
