I'll have to take a closer look at the slide and see if I can do the same thing by slipping the cord in before fully extended. I will have to take a closer look next time I'm by my trailer. Thanks for sharing.

I slipped an extention cord thru the bottom edge of slideout to run port heater when we had our 2607 which saved overloading 30 amp sytem in trailer
Very easy to slip it in past bottom seal and locate plug under jack sofa

Yep! We do the same thing. It's easy and works well.
I do like the other idea of making a permanent connection.
Sure would like to see that drawing.

We did this on our camper. Very easy to do using common items found at Lowe's or any hardware store. Here is what ours looks like, outlet inside and plug in outside. We run a heavy cord to the pedestal from there.

I'm lazy. And cheap. One really cold night I just ran a heavy extension cord out through the slide out seal (poke it through while the slide is about half way out) and it worked great.

Update: I went the route that cardinal4fun went by sliding a heavy duty extension cord in the trailer before the slider was fully extended and that trick worked. Went camping this past weekend and temps were in the 40's at night and 50's during the day and our 1500 watt little heater kept the trailer in the 70's during the day and night. Didn't have to kick on the furnace one time the entire weekend. Just wanted to share the experience. Hopefully the weather will warm up soon in Northern Ohio so I don't have to worry about heat. cheers
