No worries!
Let us know how it goes

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

I bought this.

$2.20/foot - 8/4 type "W" cord.

Even though it is 8 gauge, it can handle 65A.

"S" means 600V... but this stuff is rated for 2000V, so it doesn't get the "S". "O" means oil resistant, which I don't care about. "W" means water resistant, which I do care about.

I posted up on that a couple weeks ago I think and decided to pull the trigger. I got his 45ft 50amp version for $64 shipped. I just got it in the mail last night. BEEFY! Seems pretty flexable like the seller said, considering its size. I was pleased with it, or as pleased as you can be with an extension cord.

I plan to cut a piece off, wire the long to my spa panel/GFCI and then make the cut off the pig tail from my CP, or something like that...
