I run an extension cord to the power outlet in the bay by the steps.
How did you route the extension cord into the fresh water bay? I've heard of this, and I've placed a trouble light in the fresh water bay. It worked, however there was the challenge of how to route the extension cord into the bay, and close the door adequately to keep out the cold and counter the effects of the heat generated by the heater. I crammed fiberglass insulation in the door, which I couldn't latch since the extension was in the way.
