Replacing Marinco cap for 30amp inlet

I think this was addressed a while back but I can't find the ref through the search engine. It's actually the hinged lid that's not working anymore and I can hear it flapping and bumping when on the road. I've gotten tired of taping it closed every time I use it.

So I've seen these Marinco replacements that usually seem to include the Bezel, which I take it includes the plugin and all. Before I started taking things apart and ordering stuff I thought I'd ask if I need to replace the whole thing or if there's some way I can just replace the hinged cover unit.

Also, when replacing it what precautions do I need to take to safely work on this? Is simply throwing breakers off going to be enough?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, you have to buy the whole unit.. but you don't need to replace the whole unit.

Actually, I may have the piece you need. Let me look this weekend.

Nice, rally. I just checked to see if the inside part or bezel was part of the catch system but it looks like the cover and fixture go around the inside stuff. Mine's got 4 screws holding it on and looks like a black gasket in between. I'm seeing $25.68 at Lazydays RV.

Exactly. The actual plug and wiring fit into the cap/cover, but separate.. So you don't need to rewire anything, just remove and replace with new cap/cover.

I do have one.. Unfortunately it's also pretty loose and probably would rattle the same. Sorry!
