120 volt extension cord

Any suggestions on best extension cord to connect my RV to house power at home?

Thanks for any help

There is no "best".
You have to get a cord that meets your requirements.

Anticipated load

Connecting a 12 foot cord to do nothing more than keep your batteries charged can be done with a simple 16 gauge outdoor cord.

Running the A/C 100 feet away from the plug is at the other end of the requirements and should use a 10 AWG cord as a 12 AWG cord will drop over 5 volts with that anticipated load.

Any extension cord rated for the coach's draw will do.
