When we camp we often set up a table outside and set up a coffee pot so we don't have to walk in an out and can enjoy the morning or evening. Problem is our Cruiser only has exterior outlets up by the top of the awning forlights.



Has anyone ever added an exterior outlet? Looks like there would be power available adjacent to the refrigerator.

I added two plugs in the pass thru storage area on our old Cruiser and put them on their own15 amp breaker. I don't know what year your Cruiser is butI thought they all had a set of plugs down lower on the door side. Ours was an 05 29RK and it had two.

our '06 RK has an outside double recepticle, as well as the upper recepticle.

however, I set up a table for outdoor cooking, but have an extension cord, which I plug directly into the campground power stand, which usually has a 20 amp breaker,eliminating the possibility of overloading the camperbreakers. I use a power strip to power the frying pan, coffee pot, etc.

You should have 2 by the rear of the trailer.

Mine is like yours...Awning plug up high but no plug down low. Throught it was strange.

I went the cheap route for the short term and bought a 3 plug adapter for the refrigerator plug...snipped out room in the refrig vent and fished the power strip plug end through. Added some white velcro to the back of the power strip and on the refrig vent...presto...instant 5 plug outlet. Total cost about $7.

My bad, there is an outlet in the front of the basement on the door side. Still have to have the basement door open, but I can probably live with it for now. No outlets on the rear of the rig.

jgerni, I have an 09 31QB also. Might check out your basement area. Still might add an exterior outlet off the refrig. circuit if I can determine it won't create an overload.



Thanks for all your input.

Yeah I knew about the outlet in the basement. I wanteda plug witheasier access. The outlet in the refrig compartment is on a 15 amp circuit the refrig is only drawing 2 amps so you should have capacity to spare.



I've done a few mods to my 09 31QB if your interested. Do you have the 1/2 bath with yours?

We have a 08 Paradise Point trailer and have an outlet low on both sides of our trailer. The one on the left side was added at the factory. We questioned the lack of outlets at the Rally. I do know that the Kingston has an outlet inside the storage area. The lack of outlets was brought up at the owners forum
