I was doing this too, but more than 1 person on the forum here suggested that having a 30amp cord still coiled up in 'storage' can create excessive heat and possibly a fire hazard. I've never seen or heard of this before, but I was using the same approach as you for a while... Maybe it's an issue if you are running the AC, Television, microwave and all of your 120 volt circuits concurrently.. I probably won't sweat it too much.

Did it about a month ago, I could use the same spot to store the twist lock 30A plug, but it, the cord just sits in front of the door. I have a 50' 30A extension cord I should store there.
Last weekend was the first trip with power and water, what a luxury! The other times I relied on my battery.

It will affect your warranty for leaks in the general vicinity of the outside wall access panel that you worked on, it will not have an affect on any other portion of your TT.

This what I love about DEALERS!

Mustang65, your right. I should have been a bit more specific about that. With the camper being less that a year old at the time, I didn't want to push the issue. I did ask about any effect to the extended warranty and was told the carrier doesn't care what mods are done. They, at least my carrier, will still warranty the any thing that is covered.

When we first purchased the TT, and I was making many changes/enhancements (SOLAR) I checked with Jayco... yes even on the ShorePower modification. Better to be prepared in how I wanted to handle Jayco/Manufactures in case something may have gone wrong...

Finished this mod not 30 minutes ago. Piece of cake. Took me a little longer than I thought but I took my time and stopped for refreshments. Love the mod. Go for it.

I'm sorry but I did not take photos. I figured enough of you have done this already that you didn't need photos. I guess I did not think about the people who have not done this yet. Sorry. It was really easy.

I want to do this conversion on our 19H but I want to cut out an opening for a access door just like the front storage door (maybe more square). That way I have a place to store the cable and regular extension cords we carry. Where can I buy the access doors with hardware? Anyone that's done this have advice on cutting the opening and getting it all sealed properly?

Thanks!
