The Marinco shore power cord connecting the boat to the pedestal sometimes sags or falls into the water. Does it matter that the cord is in the water?

Although we have never heard of any incident caused by the submersion of a properly maintained shore power cable, the materials and the design are not intended for underwater use. Good electrical practice is to keep the cable out of the water, and stored out of the weather in a dry location when not in use.

We sell clips and hooks that can be used to keep 30 amp shore power cable out of the water. (Part number is CLIP and CLIP-01)
