In my estimation the weakest link will be the connectors. You would be better off running a 100 foot straight cord rather than several cords plugged together. There will be some voltage loss with each connection. If you do run more than one cord make sure the connectors have been inspected and wires tightened.

If the silver plug can handle 15-20 amps I’m pretty sure 3 of the larger ones can handle the load the OP will put on them.
