OK, finally got back to the rig this weekend (a 2010 Flagstaff 829RGSS we have parked for the summer on property 2 hrs from home) and got to do our first "shakedown" cruise.

There are definitely no receptacles near the back corner of the kitchen counter top, which in this TT is right next to the entrance door.

There is a receptacle mounted to the bottom of the upper cabinet that is between the sink and stove. I hadn't seen that one when we took delivery last month because you have to squat down low to see it. For anyone who likes to see dangling wires over the stove, it was a brilliant design.

But apparently FR fixed this issue on the 2011 models. In this picture you can see that there are now TWO receptacles on either side of the kitchen light and that the one on the right has been placed farther from the stove. But now they put it right in front of the paper towel holder...go figure! On mine that receptacle is the only one "up top" and is very close to the range hood.

So after studying the situation, I can tap into the poorly located receptacle near the range hood. Then I will run wire over to the "box" containing the main control panel near the door (in this picture of the 2011 that panel is hidden but it's located near the upper right corner of the exit door). Then I'll install a surface-mount receptacle on the exterior wall between the door and the kitchen window. I think a wall mounted receptacle is a better solution than an additional under cabinet one like they added to the 2011 model because it avoids "dangling" cords. The new wire will run in existing wire trace voids except for about an 18 inch vertical section from the bottom of the cabinet to the new receptacle. That 18 inches will be covered by a white, flat surface-mount conduit designed for the purpose which will definitely be more attractive than dangling cords.

I will provide pics when complete.

i have a cardnal 2002, may not be the same but my reciptical is located under the top cabinet. i wanted one closer to the stove and simply draped a #12 short extention cord over the window.
by the way, that reciptical (under the upper cabinet) is on a ground fault from the bathroom. seems like the tv and computer are on the same circuit.

on mine, the reciptical is located near the outside wall several ft from the stove top. my extension idea would not be a good one for ur trailer...too much heat exposure.

I used the same type of box that Milzat shows only I installed it at the end of the knife holder behind the stove top. I also used double sided sticky tape on a cordless kettle base next to the knife holder on the counter and it works like a dream.The cord is stored in the base of the kettle with just enough wire coming out to plug it in. The power was taken from the electrical box on the front of the counter that we seldom use.
