Make sure that an extension cord has the capacity to handle the current the Equipment will draw. An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in overheating and loss of power. The minimum recommended American Wire Gauge (A.W.G.) for an electric cord up to 6’ is 18 AWG and 16 AWG for electrical cord length over 6’. Consult with extension cord manufacturer before use. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL) shall be used. Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed wires and cut or worn insulation. Do not attempt to modify the electric plug or electric cord in any way.
