That's the way I do it. If heat is going to be required I prefer to use free electric rather than my propane if I can avoid it. I fish a heater cord out at the bottom of the slide seal just before putting it fully out, then a 12AWG extension cord to a separately breakered 15 amp outlet on the pole. Then I don't have to worry that the heater going full blast at 1500W is going to either trip a circuit when something else is on (water heater, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc) or that I'll exceed the 30 amp service.
Shortly, I'll install a 125V power inlet
to replace the fishing. Only need to cut a 2 inch hole in the side of a slide.
