    Under the "What Were They Thinking". The power cord is suppose to drop into the bucket and coil into the bucket. That's pretty hard to do when the bucket is placed horizontally.

    It's not a symmetrical drum. It's shaped like a megaphone or a cone. I assume that's the help keep it happy in the prone position.

    This is the best quality replacement I have found. If any of you want a huge surprise, cut open a factory molded GD plug and post a pic here of what you see. You will find your answer as to why it gets so hot and melts itself as well as receptacles they plug into. I have to continuously replace receptacles in my campground.

    Mobetta.

    We decided if this happens again anytime soon we're yanking the cord and turning it into an extension cord and buying a new one for the winder.

    When was the last time u checked the spades on your power cord. Should grab each individual spade every time u unplug and try to wiggle them. If there is EVER ANY WIGGLE in any of the spades replace it so u dont end up looking like this. There is no grey area here. ANY WIGGLE=DANGEROUS. Some steel wool to clean them is also not a bad idea. Always lota amps on a hot summer's day.

    This meltdown had not interrupted power yet it was discovered when pulling out.

    It is a glendening end.
