Default Extending USB Cable, Having Issues With Data Transfer

What do I need to do to allow for the use of a longer USB cable(s)?

I have the original cable that connects between the Performaire weather station on the pole, and I'm running it down the outside of the trailer to plug into a receptacle. From that receptacle the cable (6ft.) travels up to a wall receptacle inside the trailer.

The problem is that I think my cable length is on the fringe of an acceptable length.....we keep having issues with data transfer to the laptop that our weather info is being displayed on. If we run the cable direct from the weather station, thru the open side door of our trailer, to the laptop, we have no issues.

What needs to be used/done to fix this issue?

Thanks, Dave

Sounds like it's a bit complicated. I would think the quality of your cable(s) makes a difference
