Smile Electric hookup location

Recently traded my White Hawk T/T for an Eagle HT 28.5 RSTS and would like to know the location of the elect. connection on the trlr. for hooking up to campsite power posts, also do the power cords get pushed into a storage compt. inside the trlr. or do both ends get unpluged then rolled up. the reason for all this--- if I have to move my 30A weatherproof box on the garage to a new location I would like to do it now b/4 the new unit comes in from Jayco. Thanks in advance for y'alls help.

I would think the electrical connection comes right out the rear end. That's where our 2012 HT 26.5 RLS has its connection. The cord is "hard wired" inside the FW and pulls out to connect. I have toyed with the idea of putting a connection on a shorter cord so I don't have to pull all that cord out every time we hook up. Haven't done it yet, but you never know. The reason I have thought about doing this is that I have gotten the cord tangled up inside the FW and couldn't extend the cord all the way without a whole bunch of messing around inside the compartment and getting little scratches on my arms from reaching into the hole to untangle the cord.

Looks like it below the side rear window, the black circle. It's looks to be like mine that just pushes back into the inside storage.

The black circle on the very back looks like the fresh water filler neck.

that fresh water fill is in a much better place then the one on my 27.5, its on the door side around the middle, such a pain in the ass to fill up at most campgrounds

the only way it would be different is if you got the 50a connection which would be a plug in type

There will be a sticker identifying the electrical connector.

Thanks all for the input and pics. Looks like the the cable pull-out location is in about the same spot as the White Hawk T/T I'm trading in. So I think I'll wait till the new trlr. arrives --- maybe the new trlr. cord will reach the garage box.
