  • extension cord from an RV cord?

    I have a 50 foot 30 amp 10 gauge RV ext cord. If I cut the RV ends off and put on welder plug ends will it work OK on a Miller 211 on 240 volts? Way cheaper than anything else I can think of and as far as I know 10 gauge should do it?

      Response I believe I received from miller was 10 gauge for 50 ft and 8 gauge for 75 feet as a guideline......

        Depends onthe machine, the 211 would run on 200 ft of 10.
