There are some problems with just stuffing the connections back inside: If both sides you are using are 30 Amp right-angle, it might fit behind the 'Door', but the 'Rodent Blocker' would soon deform to where it doesn't work. If you're using a 30 Amp to 15 Amp adapter in addition to the two cord ends, I think you'd be hard pressed to close the 'Door', the Rodent Blocker would surely be destroyed, and you'd stand a good chance of dropping the cord and/or adapter off behind the wall.

I believe Franswa was assuming the 'Shore Power' was within reach of an extension cord, but not the 'Captive' RV cord.
I also think he's referring to the slide (with cut-out) in the stock port 'Door'.
I, personally, think your 'Tool Box' idea is great, and should even work with my extension. It's a 30 Amp RV receptacle mounted in a sealed, cast aluminum, weatherproof duplex box.
Pump box mod coming up!

A wet cord is not at all on my list of things to worry about but I don't see any harm if it's troublesome to others other than being a little tacky. But that too is in the eye of the beholder.

Great Idea

I love this idea. Thank you for sharing. Always good to re-purpose items when you can. Also, I have that same green extension cord that I use when I am at home. Your set up looks just like ours.

You are correct

It does indeed look really tacky. Perhaps that's it's charm. As for buying something made for the purpose, I tired, but the plug that came with my rig is a right angle plug and will not fit in the appliance to which you linked. I am still seeking a more elegant solution, but this was a quick and dirty fix until I can find such a thing.

Why not just get something made to do what you're trying to do. Like these...
