110/115/120/Volt Outside Service on Berkshire 38A?

I was wondering about the location of 110 service, if any, on the passenger (tailgating) side of the Berkshire 38A. I have watched the youtube videos, but did not see mention of an outlet. I obviously, don't own one yet, or I could look. We pick up the new ride in about a month. Thanks in advance for your help. Bobbyj.

In the first cabinet behind the front wheel you'll find a 110 outlet on the top shelf.

You can also use the engine block outlet, ours is in the power cord cabinet on the drivers side.

Mine is easy to access on the side, but it is only a single outlet.

On mine there is also an outlet in the storage bay passenger side ceiling towards the rear where the central vac. plugs in.

On our Berk 34QS, there is a large square electrical junction box in the ceiling of the main storage bay (the one with the slide). I've been planning to pull power out of that (once I figure out which circuit it serves, and especially whether it is 110 rather than 220v), and put in a GFCI power plug on the side wall, above the propane connection. Then I should be able to safely deliver power to the outside, because there is a nice little trap door at the bottom of the bay to take the propane out.

I also have the outlet in the passenger side front bay, as others describe.

And also one for the block heater. Since the block heater outlet is in the electrical bay with another door at the bottom, I'm thinking of replacing that single outlet with a double GFCI, so I can get power from it. The block heater is clearly 110v.
