How to plug in rooftop AC unit

2018 Jayco SC10. Rooftop unit has a power cord that descends through a sheath along the canvas where the push out dinette meets the kitchen. It runs behind the portable stovetop and through a grommet in the counter, ostensibly to an outlet under the counter. The power cord was tugged when the beds were last pushed in and yanked the plug out of the outlet. Problem is, the outlet beneath the counter has no access... none of the panels inside or out will allow us to plug it back in.

Any advice as to how to get the AC plugged back into the internal circuitry?

Perhaps when the stovetop is folded over you can gain access to this area...

I have a similar setup on my STARCRAFT but the 20A SERVICE PLUG is in plain sight and can be plugged into a 120VAC 20A SOCKET mounted in my wrap around seating arrangement...

Look for some obvious screws perhaps that may have to be removed to gain access in the cabinet...

Some installs have the plug/socket up high next to the ceiling like shown in this photo...
May be hidden by the valance curtains...

Hope you figure out the access haha...

Roof a/c plug

I have a 2017 10SD. You have to remove the four screws holding the dinette bench plywood and then you can see the plug. This is also where the water pump is. You can also winterize the pop-up here. There is a hose for that.

I had the same cheapo 2 screws access to my pump and winterizing area. I hated it so I took out the screws and installed self closing (spring loaded) hidden hinges. About $3 at Menards. Then looked at the screw holes and thought they looked bad so cut off the screws and glued them into the holes to cover the holes.

Not to winterize, spring sanitize, dump when not using the trailer (low point drains are there), work on pump, etc. all I have to do is open the door!
