Thanks for the input everyone.
Out on road now at a little campground in Big Stone Gap, Va, for 3 days of R&R.
Reason to have an easily accessable switch is so I can turn it on/off as needed, especially when weather is hot, ac running 24/7, and wife wants to use the microwave, hair dryer, whatever, and cutting wh off won't "drain the amps".
Decided to do my mod, but will cut wire before it enters fuse/breaker panel, and mount the switch/plate next to the panel. Easy access, but not near water.
As for code in an RV, if my Lexi had to meet code it would have been rejected at the factory befor it rolled off the line. Water lines and electric wiring laying across moving parts of my besroom slide mechanism, water line with attached filter next to and above (I mean inches) the main fuse/breaker panel. If filter housing had ever split, it would have dumped water directly onto and into the breaker panel.
Needless to say I've fixed these "minor code violations" on my own.
Don't ever say "code" and RV in the same sentence.
