The old extension cord finally died out that goes from the barn to the outside water tank. The tank heater is rated at 1500 watts and 120v. Can a uf-b wire be used to carry the electric to the tank if I use 12-2 or uf-b 14-2 wire. Only a temporary use this winter till I get the new underground wires and outlets put in this summer. time and weather got to it.I been using a 12-2 orange extension cord for the past three years but time and weather got to it'
