Bedroom Electrical Outlet

I noticed that one of the bedroom outlets is cracked apart on the outside. So I need to replaced it but don't know where to get them at a decent price, any suggestions. Would Home Depot carry them or am I restricted to Camping supply stores?

They are no different from standard outlets in your house. Home Depot, Lowes, or any hardware store. Even Walmart will have them.

Most are actually an RV specific outlet, but if you are comfortable with replacing it with a standard house outlet then go for it. I would suggest putting in an outlet box. This will protect the surrounding materials should something short out.

Actually this is not true. The ones I have are not an outlet plate with the outlet behind it, mine is all one unit. The plate is part of the outlet and not detachable. I was just at Home Depot and they don't have anything like this.

No charge. Lol. They have a different sort of inventory. Switches and such, plus the usual suspects. Twice this week they met someones need. I try not to go look too often to see what they've added. Can be dangerous to wallet.

That is often the case with small dollar purchases. If you spend more maybe price will go down. Did it have a mfg name on it you could call or look up?? Sorry to hear that.

Went to a RV fire safety seminar once. The guy showed a $3 RV outlet and a 50 cent house outlet and asked which one was better. He said the RV outlets are designed to be a bang-bang quick install and just push the wires in and can actually be more dangerous than a properly installed house-type because the contacts can be loose and cause heating and fires. He knew of a couple of fires caused by faulty RV outlet connections, and a lady at the seminar said one of hers got very hot.

I just bought one from a local rv dealer and I know they are available online. I don't think Lowes or Home Depot would carry them.
