definately nothing wrong with your install. That will stop up another mouse hole as well. Who knows what all climbs up inside your trailer using the pull out Shore Power Cable laying on the ground when in use.

Having never looked into this before I assume the Shore Power Cable is a standard cable with the screw on plug on the end. Think I have seen them for sale at a couple of places... Probably some of us have lost one to thieves along the way as well.

My fifth uses this screw-on type and the POPUP uses the pull out type...

Good job.

I like this mod...was going to do it but my dealer suggested I wait till warranty is over just in case. However, i did look into the product. Dang the adapters are expensive. Any ideas?

Shop around. I got my cord cap and the shore power outlet from Jamestown Supply.

There are so many advantages to a shore plug as illustrated. I really do not know why Jayco does not make this a standard on all trailers.
Easier than pulling out a jammed cord
Easier when packing up to leave in bad weather
Prevents critters from coming in, have never seen a cover from the pull out cord that remains closed.
Just so much simpler. Made this conversion on my last two trailers with no regrets.

Was it a difficult conversion to do? I would like to do this on my TT.

You can say that again! I jammed our old HTT's power cord a couple of times where it got twisted over itself inside. The X20E has been better but the space in there is really tight so the last couple of feet can be really hard to push in.

I'll have to put this mod on my list after the warranty expires!

No. If you are re-using your existing hole its super easy. If you are re-locating the inlet, make sure you contact Jayco with your VIN and they'll send you a PDF print of whatever wall you ask for so you can avoid hidden frame members. Then you obtain the proper sized hole saw and go to work.

Measure 3 times, drill a 1/8" test hole and if its clear proceed with the hole saw.

Mcfarmall,

Didn't notice this mod before. Just found it when it became active again. You really did a great job! Looks just like the power cord on my Eagle. Well done!
