Newbie Cable Q?

If I go to a camping site with cable I know the physical cable is on me. Is carrying a 25-30ft one long enough? I know more isn't better... unless you need it!

Some RV parks have the hookups in strange places. I carry two, 1 a short 20-25 foot and the other a 50 foot. Best of both world but, if I were to carry only 1 it would be a 50 footer.

Here is how I keep it neat. Buy, or go to a bike shop, and get a bicycle inner-tube. I prefer the mountain bike is it give me a little more substance. Cut across the tube at the valve stem on both sides. Throw the valve stem away.

Cut all along a seam of the tube with scissors then cut a 1/2 or so strip out of the length of the tube. do this for as many strips as you can get.

Important part: cut the strips in an appropriate length so that it can be double over and a knot tying the ends. The length is dependent on how much you have to wrap but now you have a bungee ball you just don't have the red ball and expense of the commercial ones.

Wrap you RF cable and use two of the rubber bungees to secure it. You will find that when you cinch up the bungee it stays in place, unless it is wet. When you get ready to use the cable just un-wrap as much as you need and cinch the rest up.

I use these for hoses and other items that need to be wrapped.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I carry a 25 and 50 foot. I bought a Rubbermaid container that both coil into along with some repair ends, a splitter, open end wrench, And very importantly a couple of coax elbows for those goofy weatherproof boxes that kink the cable. Nice and tidy, sits in elec bay next to elec cord reel.
