Our Solution to short corded Appliances

Well our 2005 Copper Canyon has a large kitchen and only two duplex outlets. One on the wall near the sink, and the other on the wall just to the left of the range. This left a large area that could not be used with short corded appliances, that is no longer an issue.
Found 15 amp rated Popup Outlets on Amazon and ordered two, these are listed at 15 amp, with 14 gauge cords. Most listed are only rated at 13 amps with 16 gauge cords. Installed new 15 amp GFCI outlet under counter and hardwired to the GFCI feed through for GFCI protection. So now have two 15 amp circuits servicing counter top. New outlets located to the left of the ice maker, and to the left of the paper towel holder.

Just to make sure I understand...you added another 15 amp breaker to your electrical panel and ran a new circuit to the new gfci under the counter using 14 gauge romex correct?

Was there a reason you wanted the under counter outlet vs installing a GFCI beaker at the panel?

Yep, I've got one to install in my MH in the desk. Just haven't taken the time to bore the hole in the Corian and install it!

Space in the power center, I have added other power circuits for use through out the 5er, a couple circuits in the basement for use during very cold weather.
So I got this to conserve space in the panel.

The 2018 Montana 3791RD we just purchased came with 2 of these "power towers" built in from the factory. Very handy!

That is the one, I ordered and installed. I ordered one set before this and didn't look close enough, they were rated 13 amp and had 16 gauge cord, so they went back.
