They should have told you to stop wrapping it around your arm....
Solid core extension cords have a built in twist. When they get hot the outer wrap acts like shrink wrap and tightens up exposing the twist.
It doesn't hurt anything just ugly.

you can coil from either end just dont twist it

for those that struggle make 🐷 tails

I like the over, under technique.. Gets memory and doesn't for the most part twist.. Although the RV360XL OG cord would twist bad, so I just used a heavier gauge cord and problem solved..

Arm-coilers make me cringe.. By all means do your own hoses and cords, don't do mine like that.. :lol:

I always use the over under as well. No twist and fast to coil. I replaced my Trinity cord with a heavy duty one.

For what the cost of those machines, you'd think the cord would be a heavy duty one from the factory.. My Orbot Vibe came with a heavy duty cord.. I just not like the twist plug connection.. :smile:
My Sprayborg has the same heavy cord. Easy to coil and no twist. The other thing Trinity needs to do is enlarge the holder for the jug. 1/4 inch wider and 3 inches higher.
