I am looking to figure out some kind of power on the outdoor ďlivingĒ side of the RV. Currently I run an extension cord under the rig either from the post if it is close enough or from the plug in the wet bay. It amazes me that they build a unit like this and donít give you easy access to power where you are most likely to need it.
The easiest solution I see is to simply run an extension cord from behind the TV. Because I have drawers instead of a stove I have easy access to the TVís plug and could just drop a short extension cord but that only gives me power when I have the cabinet open.
The easiest cabinet to mount a proper outlet in would be the battery compartment. If I could pull a 110 line from somewhere then I could put an outdoor plug inside the cabinet. The advantage to that location is I donít have to put a grommet in the floor to run cables through.
Any thoughts or solutions are welcome.
I thought it was a little strange as well that they put power in the utility bay but not on the passenger side, where your patio pad would be. Hasn't bothered me too much, as I'm such a long-term camper as opposed to a weekender, but I understand why you might want it there.
Just a thought: could you run off the power in the utility bay, run your wire (or extension cord) to the left one bay with a simple hole to drill, and then go up and over the drive shaft using the full pass-through storage bay? Once on the other side, you could route to anywhere.
Personally, I'm thinking about doing something like this simply for my impact driver. I keep all of my tools in front right bay, right next to the door, and I'd like to be able to keep my batteries charged without having to bring them into the cabin. Just something that I'll get around to sooner or later.
