Where is the main power connection in a 3100SS?

I am building a 20 x 60 detached garage that will house my toys and a future 3100SS that will be in one of two locations within the garage (depending on the time of year). I need to find the optimum location for the 30 amp receptacle. Could someone with a 3100SS tell me the distance between the power connection and the back of the 32 foot RV? I can't find any literature with this information. Thanks in advance.

Shore power on my 2014 is in the drivers side compartment just behind the rear wheel...same compartment as the sewer connection. If I had to guess...6 feet forward of the rear bumper? It's at the dealer having some work done so I can't actually measure....

The shore line (power cord) on the 3100 will extend about 25 feet from the utility compartment which is, as stated above, about 6 or 7 feet from the rear bumper. Mine reaches almost to the front bumper.

Thank you. I just got my building permit for the garage and the project will get started around the first or second week in September. I will probably drop a conduit beneath the slab from the main panel to the receptacle since it will be a much shorter run versus overhead.
