turbs,

did you use twist lock or just straight receptacle/plug? even though I bought the portable I'm thinking of moving it inside by cutting my supply wire and adding plug/receptacle

thx,
craig

I used 30 amp twist locks.
Bought them on ebay for cheap.
I just found a set of 4 for a guy on the forum for $30.00
Go to lowes or hardware store and they'll be $20.00 - $30.00 a piece!

Got me there!
Albeit my install was only about an hour.
Hardwired advantages.
1) no theft concerns.
2) in coach "status" display moniter.
3) in coach manual override.

in all honesty, if I had to do it over again, i would probably buy the 50 amp hardwire. However, I have the 30 amp portable and am not about to waste the money i already spent.

That and before I saw how easy it was, I was concerned about screwing up the wiring/ electricty/ frying something. DW would not be happy. It's lucky I lived through the whole "you put screws through my new camper" fiasco.
