This question on high amperage/power cords used with appliances such as dryers and ranges. I am curious to know typically how long these cords are good for. 5 years? 10 years? 20 years? 40 years?
I know they're expected to last at least 3 years because Home Depot in the US tells me this product http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-4-ft-4-Prong-40-Amp-Range-Cord-WX09X10035DS/203438714 has some kind of 3-year extended warranty I can get.
I saw this question and it seems 40-60 years is pushing it.
