Power cords

I have never liked the power cords you slid through the wall of the RV. So the other day I finally went out and made mine a detachable. At the same time I put my portable surge guard as a hard wired inside the RV http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...rge-guard/2279
was always nervous that it would disappear..
The old hole that the cable ran through is now my inputs for my hidef sat dish and my satellite internet service.

Cool mod. I like it.... If my Jayco was being towed (instead of at its current Seasonal site), I'd probably apply this mod to it as well. You do great work.

I loved my hide a cord on my old 5'er. We now have the detachable cord and it seems like its gonna be a pain to schlep it around to plug in? To each his own I guess. Nice work anyway!

Seann,

Could you post a parts list and source specifically for the new socket for the trailer and the plug on the end of the cord?

The power cord on my new 23' G2 Jayflight seems to be designed to get stuck and usually at an inopportune time.

Regards,
Jim

Bob,

Thanks for the info.

Another question. I'm accustomed to using 3M sealants on a boat I owner a few years ago.

What sealants are generally used to seal around exterior wall fittings and, if different, external roof fittings on a RV?

Regards,
Jim

Until this trailer we have always had power cords that were just pushed or pulled to use and put away. I don't like this cord that I have to roll up and stash in a storage door. It is 50amp and heavy and I have to take it all out to use it.
