Default another angle

Another way to achieve as much peace and quiet as possible and still get some power could be to hook up to a neighboring RV that has a generator. It would be interesting to hear from owners of two units if they've done this and what it does for quiet in the unit that lacks a genny or doesn't have it on. There'd be no vibration, but given my impression of parking at Walmart rv areas and truck stops, I wonder if there's really any improvement to be had over just running a genny onboard. Since the longest 50 amp cord I've heard of is 36' feet, I wonder if that's the farthest apart you can park the linked rv's. To park them farther apart than 36' would you have to use wire of a heavier gauge than used in the 50 amp docking cord?
