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.

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.

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.
