Southwire 25890002 Outdoor Extension Cord
100-ft
12/3, rated for 15A
SJTW Heavy Duty, 3-Prong, Vinyl Jacket, Water Resistant

It's a little cheaper than previous fairly popular deal.
I do not know if there is a difference between 25890002, 2589SW0002 and 2589

Depending on what load you're powering off the generator you may want to go with a 10 gauge power cord.

I would suggest not running the space heater with anything else. At 100 feet, and dear god do not add any more cords together or you will burn out motors, etc. Plus have a generator rated at 3500 peak watts or more, Add up the watt ratings or amps and keep it below 12 maps or 1500 watts, with a 12 gauge, 10 gauge you could run heater and charge your sex toys, cell phones, etc. all at the same time, if the total loads are less than 1500 watts. Be aware that some things like refrigerators, freezers, etc. will overwhelm your extension cord and breakers upon start up as they sometimes draw several times the rated capacity to start.

If your space heater is rated at 1500 watts, it might be OK, nothing else, due to voltage drop you can get maybe 10-12 amps at 100 feet.

You can get 15 amps at 100 feet safely with 10 ga not 12.

I burned out several pieces of equipment, using a 12 gauge 100 foot extension cords, I now run 10 gauge, no more burned out motors. These tools were all rate for less than 1500 watts and only ran one tool at a time. Being several years since I lost equipment to undersized cords.
