Marinco detachable power cord modification

Today, I installed the Marinco detachable shore power cord, which replaces the hard wired shore power. It wasn't a hard mod at all. I work slower than most, so it took me probably 60 minutes.

I'll add a few pictures, although they will probably show up, upside down or sideways. In preparation, I looked at 3 different videos on You Tube to get familiar with the process.

Before starting, I unplugged the shore power cord obviously. But I also detached the negative ground on the battery.

you will be glad you did this mod. beats the heck out of feeding cord into the mousehole. This was one of the very first things I did on my 2016 Jayco when I bought it. So much nicer.

yes I know. Feeding that cord into the mouse hole was difficult, and when it was in the 40's, really hard because the cord got really, really stiff.

The other plus is not having to worry about the cord gettin in a knot inside the compartment, and then not being able to get the full amount cord out.

Looks good! I did this same conversion at the beginning of this season - your pictures look almost the same as the ones I took. Now you've gone from knocking your knuckles raw to worrying did I forget to stow the shore power cord as you fly down the freeway at 60....

For others considering this procedure, a great complementary mod that can and should be done at the same time if the budget allows is to install a progressive hard-wired EMS into the now vacant cord storage area behind the mouse hole. Might as well kill two birds with one stone and do them together while things are apart.

The storage behind my mouse hole is very hard to get to. In fact, I still don't know how to find it. For that reason, I'll just continue to use my portable one.
