Sea Breeze LX shore power

New 2007 National Sea Breeze 8321 owner here. I have a question about using the 50 amp power cord. My manual says to use the detachable 50 amp power cord and plug it in the external receptacle on the outside of the coach. Mine does not have an external receptacle, the 50 amp power cord is hardwired as shown in the attached picture. I'm assuming I just run the cord directly to the power source? Also, the port on the bottom of the compartment is not big enough to pass the 50 amp plug through. Do I route the cord out the bottom of the basement door opening and not be able to close and latch the basement door?

One last question...is the configuration shown in the picture correct for running the generator?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Most owners manuals were very generic and covered several different coach configurations so I'm not surprised your's doesn't' match your coach.

My 2001 dolphin is similar and that is how I use the generator.

You might get the 50 amp plug thru the port if you move it around it carefully. I have to. Or you can swap out the port for a bigger one. Might look for a marine cover that might work.

When not connected to shore power just keep it like your photo and you are ready to run your generator. I have the detachable cord on mine and it is a pain.

That arrangement is your transfer mechanism. It is completely effective and simple to use. It switches all of the conductors of the RV's AC wiring system to either the generator powered receptacle outlet or to the park pedestal receptacle outlet. Since the plug cannot be in contact with 2 different receptacles at the same time there is no risk of cross connecting the 2 power sources with each other.
