To use Shorepower you need 2 things:
1) A heavy-duty 12 gauge extension cord to plug intoconnection cords the Shorepower pedestal. If you don’t have a heavy-duty cord with you, you can usually buy one at a Shorepower-equipped travel plaza (see a list of Shorepower locations). We also offer 100′ cords in our Store. We recommend 100′ cords for full size trailer trucks that back into the parking space.
2) Any credit card, gift card or Comdata card. We suggest creating an account to save time ordering in the future. To open an account or buy Shorepower:
