Yes haha,
Seems the 13 year old boy is the only one to be trusted as he only went in to complete his chore of changing the stay dry bags, the 19 and 17 year old were to be helping with maintenance but only used it for T.V and A/C... now the door stays locked .. I knew better but gave it a shot anyway, no real harm done it seems so not so bad.

I just contacted a friend of mine and will have a 30 Amp box on the house this weekend, he suggested putting it towards the front of the house so I can unravel the entire cord and not leave any cord in the trailer bundled up and also so I can hook up from the street if I want to stage the camper/tow vehicle and chill the fridge overnight. Sometimes neighbors park too close for an early departure...... Jeez, How do I not think of these things????

Make sure the electrician knows it's for an RV and that it is 30 amp 120 volt NOT 240 volt... I've seen that mistake, if you just ask for a 30 amp plug for your RV.

Good luck !

Thanks Wags, Yes I told him, In fact he just drove out to Ohio last weekend to pick up a brand new 2015 Jayco it turns out. So, he knows exactly what I need. Also, he married the woman who I bought my house from so he knows exactly what he needs to make the run and hook up from the box, kinda working out all around on this project. Which of course means, something else has to go wrong....
