There is a conversion kit that allows you to make a permanent cord into a loose one like a lot of the fifth wheels. It would be similar to Ernest 917. This would mean you would only have to feed the last 12" through the darn hole. I have this on my list but haven't got there yet.

Below is a link to the conversion kit I was referring to. The biggest issue on my coach will be the fact that the electrical switch is in the back compartment and the cord is in the second from the rear. One would think that the compartments share the same sheet of metal for the divider wall, but they don't. They are actually 2 separate walls with about an 1/8" gap between them. This will make protecting the mounted cord somewhat interesting.

Maybe lay the reel over on it's side?? Might take some finagling but maybe would work??
