He wants to have a dedicated circuit for his heater us71na. That's what the post is about.

That's a professional looking job. My camper has aluminum siding. Hope it turns out as well.

I'm guessing I'll use a heavy duty #12 wire extension cord to the post. Where would I put my outlet and wire penetration into the camper. Maybe mount the receptacle in the pass through with the male plug in going through the floor and hang down underneath??
I don't understand the need for a separate outlet for a ceramic heater?

I plug my ceramic heater into the outlet under the dinette. Works just fine. All other lights/appliances work just fine when the heater is turned on.

why the need for an additional outlet?

Add on 120 circut

On our last camper we occasionally tripped breakers when we had coffee pots, crockpots, electric skillets, fans, etc. ( no we don't run all of this at once). It will be handy and take some of the load off the traditional wiring system. Thanks everyone for the input. The first Marinco receptacle I received was broken. Sent it back and should get a replacement tomorrow or the next day.

I can only surmise that you have 30a service to your camper. The attached chart shows the typical amp draw of appliances used in your camper. Many reduce that by using the water heater on gas and alternating use of high draw things that combined can cause the 30a breaker to trip. The idea of the additional outlet for one or 2 outlets is to reduce the total load in order to give you more options. For instance with our hot water heater running in our old 30a rig we knew we could not run a coffee pot and the microwave without a trip out to the pedestal to reset the breaker. Powering the water heater or a electric heater reduce the chances of that happening.

I did it so I can run 2 ceramic heaters during cooler times without stressing about amperage [12.5 amps vs 25 amps]. In the summer my wife uses the dedicated outlet for a hairdryer, toaster etc all while the AC/fridge/water heater is running. Having an additional 15 amps running into the trailer is nice as we only have 30 amps to work with.

DW understands the limits of 30amps. That's why she took her hairdryer outside one summer and plugged it into the outlet on the side of our trailer... poof!
