Exterior AC Outlet?

Has anyone found a nice weatherproof exterior AC outlet?

I have the two holes in the side of my van from an old Suburban Propane furnace that I would like to convert to an exterior outlet.

Thanks,
Taylor

Re: Exterior AC Outlet?

You should be able to get one at any RV supplier. Check CampingWorld's website. Make sure to have a GFI outlet out there, though.

SMB might sell you one, too.

Re: Exterior AC Outlet?

I have one of these and I like it:

http://www.marinco.com/product/30-amp-1 ... less-steel



Edit: I actually have two of these, one mounted on top of the other. One is for 110v AC outlet and the other is for 100v 30 Amp Shorepower inlet.

Re: Exterior AC Outlet?

I guess I should ask for clarification: are you looking for an external "outlet" to allow you to plug in regular 110v/15 amp plugs for appliances and whatnot, or do you want an inlet for 20, 30 or 50 amp shore power?

Thanks for the link threefiddy..

I have a marinco shore power connection as well, but am having trouble sourcing a nice exterior AC outlet.

It's the same housing, just the inside is different and that is swapable. Check Marinco.

Re: Exterior AC Outlet?

Do you think this could be used to install an exterior 12V plug as well?

Re: Exterior AC Outlet?

Take a while to look through the Marinco website. I bought some 12v plugs and recepticals that are not cigarette lighters because I think we are well past using the cigarette lighter plug and receptacle as a power connection. They had an interior fixture and a weather proof fixture both.

But I haven't installed them yet and I don't have the van or the electrical projects kit at this location.

So, again take a look through the Marinco website.

And maybe CarringB or Chance or some other electrical wizard will chime in here.

Here's what SMB installed on our van: a GFI outlet with an RV waterproof cover, like this: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/it ... tlet/49739
