Circuit Breaker - Where to buy?

I want to add a 20A (120VAC) additional circuit to my 2013 Forest River Cedar Creek. The OEM panel has one, double (2 pole) space available.
Any idea where I can find a CB? Current CBs are model #MH-7. Not having much luck locating this item. I would install a single or 2 pole device. Thanks.

Did you try Home Depot or Lowes? I got mine there. Just note make and type of breaker, because there is a difference between breakers.

I'm betting those are type MH-T not 7.

Could be. My eyes ain't what they used to be. I looked at several in the panel and decided it was a "dash 7". I'll look again. What I am concerned about is the physical construction...I need one that will mate with the panel of course and cannot see exactly what existing ones look like. I really don't want to pull one if possible. Any info of box store part numbers is appreciated. I realize this isn't rocket science but just want it to "pop in" when I buy it. Thanks!

Can I offer you an alternative suggestion?


I cut a hole in side wall next to reefer on the slide on drivers side. Put a regular elec. receptacle inside, and connected it to one of these on the outside:


https://www.westmarine.com/buy/marin...91?recordNum=4


Then I just connect an extension cord to the extra 20 amp plug found on most power pedestals. That way, anything I connect inside is not using any of my normal power available to the camper.


Note: The two holes have to be offset, the wall is too thin to put them back to back. Also, ensure that between the two holes, there is NOT any kind of aluminum cross member.

Simply remove one and take it into HD, Lowes, Ace or similar place and ask for one the same type/brand. Failing that, you could always go to an electrical wholesaler. An RV dealer or parts vendor may have one but expect to pay a lot more.

What brand of panel/converter? You could always inquire with them.
