Shore power cord storage

How do you guys set up your shore power/genni cord.
Im thinking of using an outdoor 30A twist lock outlet. since the new genni im buying already has a 30A twist lock. I dont go to RV parks (to restrictive for me) so I really dont need to use and RV style outlet.
Although I have seen the 30A rv cords quite cheap on ebay.

Not saying this is the best idea, but I just have a normal RV male plug on the side of my bus and use a normal extension cord. The nice thing is if I forget to unplug it, it will just pull out.

That's a pretty big bonus! I've forgotten to unplug more than once, unfortunately i dont' have a setup like steve.

I just have a 20 amp rated 2 gang outlet mounted inside my inverter compartment. There is a short (maybe 2 feet) piece of 10 gauge that I can pull out the side of the compartment and hook an extension cord up to for shore power or gennie power (it has a male end out it). I know it's not the best system, but it certainly was cheap and easy. I suppose mine will unplug should I drive away as well although I need to go under there to switch to inverter power so it hasn't been an issue yet.
