Has anyone considered installing a power cable reel? They make some lower profile ones now but not sure if it would fit correctly.

Reel

I considered installing a outside male outlet like you see on the 5th wheel trailers and then using a cord stored inside. Trying to get that big cord into the compartment takes more time than anything else...I did see one mounted inside the rear section where the radiator is located...plenty of room in there...

I'm not a big fan of the external plug that you see on the fifth wheel.

I think a powered reel would be nice, I think I'm going to investigate this more.

Captnrick/Irob,
Did you use the screws that came with the towel racks or use shorter screws or molly bolts? I bought the one IROB installed but I am worried about putting those long screws in the wall....actually terrified they will pop out the side of the RV! Did you find studs or just center and use plastic screw sheaths?

Thanks...been putting this off too long and just need to do it!

just go to the HW store and get some 1/2" sheetrock screws. You don't need to put them all the way into the wall as the head needs to stick out so that it can hang. That will do the trick. I used 2 one on each end and then used 3M hanging tape on the back. Worked great !

Yep, what Irob said. The walls are at a minimum 1 1\4" thick and substantial enough that molleys or anchors are usually not necessary nor is finding a stud which would be aluminum anyway.

Cable Routing

Moved some electrical cables so the engine access cover could be removed.

Normal access to the top of the engine is through the shown access panel. Day to day servicing is from the exterior rear. Someone at the factory routed two 120V cables across the panel making it impossible to remove.
