power cord stuck, please help!

When I came home from my last camping trip the plug part of my power cord had fallen in the cord storage bay. There is only a small hole where the cord comes out and I can't get my hand in there to pull the cord out. I tried to fish it out with a coat hanger but I didn't get the plug end, just the middle of the cord. Now it all seems to be twisted around itself and I can't get it out. Does anybody know of a way I might be able to pull it out?? I need to get it out in the next couple days because I have another trip planned at the end of the week and I want to make sure everything is all charged up and ready to go!

If it is like mine there is a cabinet or nightstand inside behind it take the cover off of it and you may gain access to the plug that way.

There should be access through a cabinet or such. You may need to pull a drawer out or the bottom panel in a cabinet.

That happened to me once on a travel trailer we had. The cord was housed in a metal box under the frame. I unscrewed the box, untangled the wire and fed it back out through the hole before replacing the box.

you can also take the cover off,pull the cord out, put some new puddy on and reinstall.some cords you won't be able to access very easy.should take about five min to remove and reinstall the cord hatch.

My access is through the rear engine compartment, dirty but fairly open and easy to work on
