Replacement cable for generator

Hi. I have a Generac XG8000E and what appears to be a 30A 125/250V cable (pics below). I believe it's 10' and I want to get a longer one (maybe 25' or so).

In any case, is this the proper replacement; https://www.amazon.com/NEMA-L14-30-G...00H20CTZU?th=1 or do you recommend something different/better?

Thank you!

That is the correct cable.

Thank you. Is this also correct: https://www.amazon.com/Champion-250-.../dp/B076HQ2THC looks similar (many more reviews though), but the L14 info is a bit different.

As long as you get a 10ga cable with L14-30 plug/receptacle, you're good. The Amazon link you provided looks good.

(There's also an L14-20 plug/receptacle that you don't want)

The second one is good also. it has L14-30P(plug) and L14-30R(receptacle).
As long as the cord has a L14-30P and and L14-30R it will work.

I'm going thru the same process and what you pictured was the same cord (SJOOW) the pro's here suggested I use to go from the generator to the inlet (receptacle).

Since you already have the ends which are about $15 bucks each, would the most efficient way be to just buy the length of SJOOW needed?

10/4 cable is available bulk at the home improvement stores. Depot has it for $2 a foot.
10/4 rubber cable by the foot

Cheaper to buy he one linked. Same price as cable and you get the ends.
