Your cabinet probably has a space between the inside shelf and the bottom of the cabinet, it is used as a wire chase for under cabinet lights. Problem is fishing a wire from the cabinet to 120 source. That you'll have to solve on your own. If there is a nearby outlet, you could perhaps add a line to the new outlet.

Why not have them installed before you pick it up?
I've had mine back to Entegra for warranty work and had 2 outlets put in on the wall behind the ps sofa, as well as on the dash in front of the ps seat.

Installed one myself for my printer a few months back, not a big deal. All the parts you will need are at Lowe's, Ace, etc. Tapped into the left most overhead outlet of the kitchen. The base of the overhead cabinets are hollow to store/hide wire. Just be careful lifting the fuzzy floor inside the cabinet. Once it was lifted i pulled out the staples, once finished I secured the base with screws. Lust look at the outlet that you are tapping into and visualize teh install first, it's only about 18-24 inches, take your time and no problem. Good luck...

I use the new outlets one for printer, the other for the laptop. On my coach the wall below the ps couch window has easy access to wires that power the outside TV. Besides I didn't want the clutter appearance of accy wires hanging down from overhead.
If you plan on much dry camping you might want to make sure they are inverter driven.
They may not want to interrupt the assy line to do it, but once it rolls out of the barn it shouldn't be any problem to satisfy a customer. I didn't have any problem on my warranty visit.

Is there a 12V power wire nearby that could be tapped into to add a 12V reading light over the sofa?
