MORryde Motorized Power Cord Storage Reel - MR66AR Review


Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this MORryde motorized cord storage reel. This storage reel is gonna be a really easy and convenient way to keep all of your RV's power cords rolled up and stored away. So rather than having to lug them around yourself, dealing with a big knotted mess, this is gonna keep that all organized, and it's gonna be very easy for you to reel in. Unlike the manual reels that you have to put a lot of elbow grease into, this is gonna be powered, so it's gonna do all that work for you.

This is going to store up to 30 feet of RV power cords, whether they're 30-amp or 15-amp. Now, those power cords are sold separately, but I do happen to have a 50-amp cable here to demonstrate. This is a 25-foot long cable. So you can see, we can put it right through the center there, and then we can pull it off to the left side. We've got this toggle switch up here on the top, and that's going to allow us to retract or extend out.

So I'm going to start retracting this. I'm just gonna guide the cable as it's winding up. So you can see how easy that is. I'm not gonna do the whole cable here, but you can see how that is just very easily pulling that in. I don't have to work very hard at all to just align where that cable is gonna be.

This rocker switch will also allow us to extend that cable out. Or we also have this T handle here that's going to allow us to very easily undo that so that we can free spool the cable out. And as you saw there, it did come out quite a bit, but once if you had the whole thing rolled up and you we're to release the gears with that side assembly, you wouldn't have to worry about that. It would only pull out at the pace that you want it to. So this is going to be very easy to get installed.

It does come with these screws that you can mount it. You can mount this in just about any orientation. Put it on the floor, upright like we have here, you can mount it from the ceiling in an upside down orientation. You can even mount it horizontally like so, and so really any way that's gonna fit your compartment best. This will work in any of those orientations. You just wanna make sure that wherever you're mounting is gonna be able to withstand the weight of the reel and cord put together. And they do recommend that the mounting surface be able to support at least five times that combined weight. So you wanna make sure that it's gonna be very stable for it to make sure that it can hold up to that weight. In order to know where you're gonna be able to mount this, you will need to know some dimensions. So this is gonna be right about 16 3/4 of an inch long, so just under 17 inches long. Our width here, the widest part, is probably gonna be these blades, so we're looking at right about 13 inches. And then, our height, just over 14. We'll call it 14 1/8 of an inch tall. This will very easily connect to your 12-volt power source. You've got your black and red wires here that you can just hook up a couple of butt connectors, get those connected to your 12-volt power source. This is only gonna draw about 10 amps on your RV system, so it's not gonna take up much, not gonna draw much energy at all. And it is made here in the USA, so you can trust it's made to the high-quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. I am gonna hook this back up and connect to that cable one more time, so you can kinda see how long it will take to pull in that full 25 feet. So again, I'm just gonna stick this in, pull it off to the side there, and start reeling it back. So that's going to allow us to get that full 25-foot long, 50-amp cord put in place here. I could extend it back out. Or I can easily pull on that T handle there. As you can see, that's gonna allow it to free spin, so I can pull out whatever length I need. So that's gonna complete our work for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
