Just be aware that this solution will not always get you the extra 20A. Many campgrounds have a tree structure in their electrical distribution system. That means that three 30A pedestals are wired through a 100A breaker. That means that if it is hot or cold and you two neighbors are using their 30A and a little from the 20A outlet, there may only be 30A or a little more for you before all three sites are out of electricity.

I have seen some threads where some people run the outside wire through the slide out wiper. I wanted something more permanent.
I thought about putting the male plug in a storage door or using a housing similar to that used for the 30A outside cable. If I decide to place a hole on the outside wall going through to inside for plug, how is the best way to cut an outside hole without splitting the outside fiberglass. I am a little nervous about cutting a hole on the outside fiberglass wall.
