Outside power outlet

I have a 2011 360BH and would like to plug in an extension cord to plug in things. I do not find an outdoor outlet on the motorhome. There is an outlet in the first compartment on passenger side but it does not have a pass through so the door can remain shut while plugged in. Has anyone noticed this or am i missing and outlet somewhere.

Thanks

I plug my awning lights into the outlet you mention and close the door on the cord. It doesn't close tight enough to cause a problem.

I don't know if your motorhome has an outside outlet but don't forget that most camp
ground power posts have a regular outlet on them as well as the RV sockets.

You could add one of these type of access plates inside the compartment.

4" Access / Deck Plate (White) #31005

Try looking at the top of the compartment. There should be a round plastic piece that you can unscrew. The cord will go out of the top and under the slide. the opening is large enough for several cords.

I bought a cable hatch and installed it in the first compartment on passenger side.... Just cut a hole, insert cable hatch with lots of clear seal, screw it down... Then get underneath and apply lots of seal and you now have a hatch for all cords, cables, etc... Takes about 30 minutes and hatch costs any $6.00

I have a 2011. What about the plug where you plug the block heater into? I'm sure that will work. It's in the furthest bay in the rear on the drivers side. I have never tried it but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
