    The standard one is coiled up and in a tray beneath the drivers seat, together with the adaptors, and then a 45m one is on the reel it came on, behind the seat

    1 is in a bag with most of the adaptors
    1 is on a reel that fits in its own purpose made bag
    3 others are coiled (a selection to fit most hookup points without to much slack).

    I can make up various lenghts to stretch to almost any hookup point.

    I have not yet been out of range of a hookup on any site including abroard.

    I have a selection of adaptors to fit any available point and reverse polarity adaptors as well.

    I use the Velcro cable ties with the cable threaded through the loop on the ties thus making them captive,usually 2 to a coil. I also have an armoured cable which is secures by 2 ball bungrrs.

    Coiled up, sailor fashion - no kinks, no tangles, runs off the coil easily - in a round zippered nylon 'Bags 4 Everything' bag.
