Hi, I have a caravan/cabin that came with a 30m long cable of 2.5mm with 3-pin plugs.
If the power source is about 90m away, what sort of cable do I need? 6mm? I plan to lay it on the ground as a temporary solution.

cheers
Tim

would need a careful calculation, including amount of volt drop in supply to socket you're going to use. But likely to need at least 10 mm2
