The outside receptacle on some of the sunseekers 2860DS is where my outside stereo radio/cd is now. the stereo has a 120VAC receptacle in it... Which doesn.t work for me. as door would have to be kept open, But mystery solved!

I was afraid of it not having AC in it, but thought it was where all the transferring is done so thought it might. I'll check and see if the outside stereo outlet doesn't have a bunch of other loads on it and tap into it. It would be in an OK spot there under the couch.

I have the stated outlet Brian mentions by my entrance door but I seldom use it. I instead carry a 25 foot extension cord and plug it in the 20 amp outlet on most campgrounds power pedestal. In this way I keep my total power load down through the coach.
Most of the time, that 20 amp outlet on the pedestal is a gfci but if it isn't I have gfci dogbone that I use.
I toss the extension cord under the coach to the entrance side to plug in rope lights and sometimes a box fan.

I agree, but a few weeks ago we were on Vancouver Island BC fishing for a couple weeks and all they had was a 30A receptacle, no breaker, no 120VAC U ground 15/20 amp. We brought a small 7 cuft chest freezer with us for ice for our toddies and to freeze our catch (which was full coming home with 2 couples fishing). Luckily the people next to us were in a pickup camper and were also some of our friends so we plugged into their 120VAC external receptacle on their camper. I thought the Park had standard 50/30/and 20A U ground pedestals (they said), but they didn't! I have a lot of different adapters but couldn't make the grade. You can only carry so much. So that wont happen again!

My 07 2860DS outside outlet is is wired into the 120v at the rear of the fridge.

A lousy wiring connection combined with a cable cut too short led me to it.

FYI here is a picture of the outside Jensen stereo/CD player. Not only is the 120VAC receptacle here as I stated above there is also a 12VDC outlet with a 5 A reset on it. I am surprised that its not a GFI but it may be fed from one upstream. I'm trying to remember if all the receptacles are GFI protected. Also it's hard to see but the right bottom screw holding the GFI in was probably tightened to much and cracked the receptacle. A specialty receptacle like that might be hard to find. one plugin not useable and non standard mounting holes. LOL

Anyway mystery solved for all you that have a 2860DS with outside stereo. I will say though its not very good for someone wanting to plug into 120VAC outside as you cant close the door on the stereo and could ruin it if it rained. I will be putting a receptacle outside when I get the time.

All you need to do is put one of those little cord ports in the door of that stereo.
