IMO using the extentions cord is inherently more dangerous than having AC line because presumed ly the AC line would be anchored to the structure and secure whereas the extention cord can fall off or be dropped. All it would take is one little nick in the cord somewhere to get charged up. I am speaking from experience unfortunately. I do understand apprehension about 120 volts and water though. Any AC line exposed to weather should definitely be ground faulted. You can do it at the outlet or the breaker. For my outside outlets I like the GFI outlets as opposed to a breaker because if it trips you reset it right there instead of having to go into the panel at the house, but I'm. Lazy... Lol.
