    Has anyone found / discovered a universal cord reel with a NEMA 14-30 or 14-50 receptacle?

    I have only found this thus far

    Why? What is the advantage over a simple RV extension or a custom-made Tesla-specific NEMA 14-50 cable?

    The one you show has generator plugs and is only 20 amps. The higher gauge wire needed to carry 50 amps would make any kind of "reel" pretty unwieldy, wouldn't it? I carry a 15' extension "just in case", and have used it a few times, but only because it was easier than moving the car closer to the outlet.
