That was going to be my guess too. Mine was like that- luckily they're easier to adjust than house outlets. The two offset screws are on wings and likely your hole is squared just fine- you can just loosen and then bother to keep the outlet square while you retighten.

Re: What did you do to your SMB today?

Installed a 30 gallon (30W x 24L x 10H) fresh water tank under the van just behind the rear axle. Had to relocate a cross member and canister but the install fits perfect between the body cross supports.

This will give me extended Baja time!

Now that someone else brought it up...(I didn't want to be a downer) ...that's the first thing I noticed. So then when I scrolled down to the "after" photo and saw it was still crooked, I had to scroll back up to see what was changed The new/dark panel does look nice.

Done and done. Now we can all sleep at night.
