Shore Power

I installed a shore power inlet on the 23B last night. It turned out really nice with the hardest part being putting a 2.75" hole saw to my trailer. The folks at Jayco kindly provided a print of the rear wall so I was able to avoid internal frame members.

The inlet was moved from the side of the trailer to the rear for at least 2 reasons. Had I kept it where it was, I would have had to make an adapter plate because the new inlet was smaller than the factory power hole. The other reason was that a centered location would put it closer to the converter meaning I'd have more cord left over for my pigtail. Also by putting it on the rear wall, there is the benefit of being covered by the rear bunk when it is deployed.

The parts came from Jamestown Supply, the brand is Furrion and are as follows:

F30INS-PS Shore power inlet 30A 125V square non-metallic
F30FMP-SY 30 amp female connector
F30CVL-SY 30 amp weatherproof connector cover w/ threaded ring

The parts are of very high quality materials and workmanship. The inlet will allow the use of both threaded ring style and bayonet style connectors. The lid of the inlet also has a bright blue LED that glows when power is applied.

This is shown on my new Outback, but I did the same thing on a previous Jayco trailer. I cut a piece of King Starboard large enough to cover the existing cutout and set the inlet in the Starboard. It kept me from having to cut another hole in the trailer.

Mcfarmall,

Sounds like a great mod, post a couple of pics if you get a chance. My brother in-law has a 23B and I plan to forward him your mod.

Bob

I went to the local RV salvage store and bought a rather large about 8 x 8 access hatch ($3.50) to put where the old power inlet used to be. This will take advantage of the cavern where the cord was previously wadded up in. I can put my sewage hose with the big 90's in there nicely. I'll try to post some pics when (if) I get the time.

I want to do this as well but was told need to wait until the 2 year warranty is up or it could void it on converter and that has been replaced once all ready.

McFarm,
This is an old post but I'd be interested in seeing the storage hatch you added and how much space is behind it. When you can please.
