Outside Receptacle

Saw a friend of mine that had installed a four plug outside receptacle on his m/h and I would like to do the same. My buddy had a washer/dryer removed, already had the hole and wiring so his installation was simple.

I guess I have to come from my panel and run the wiring somehow to a hole I have to cut where I want the receptacle installed.

Any ideas? Does anyone have suggestions from previous experience?

We don't own a class A, so please take my advice FWIW.
A: Make sure the outlet will either be a GFCI outlet or connected to a GFCI circuit.
B: If you have 110 Volt outlets in your storage bays that could provide easy access to pull a wire for a new ext. outlet - again, make sure it will be GFCI protected.

I found the AC plug in the drivers side bay to be very convenient, just plug an extension cord in and shut the door.

I have a 110V receptacle in the front right hand basement compartment. I added one to the rear right compartment (just forward of the water and waste tanks) and added an additional receptacle in the engine compartment. Both of these new ones are run off a dedicated inverter that also runs my house refrigerator. I use the basement receptacle to power a 3 1/2 cu basement freezer and the one in the engine compartment to run a 17 cu ft chest freezer I put in the toad bed when bringing fish down from Alaska. Of course both of these can also be used as a 110v source for anything I need with an appropriate extension cord.
