I had thought about doing this. I decided to approach things a bit differently than some other Scamp
owners. The cord comes out of the large storage space under the street side dinette bench seat. I added a small partition as close to the converter as I could get it. Now the cord, and extension cords, and a water hose all live in side where 30 amp cord comes in. They're all contained in the front of the locker. The back is now free to use for other things.
There's a couple drawbacks to a cord that plugs in.
1. Additional connector creates an additional failure point. A connector will fail long before a hard wired connection.
2. You now have to find some place to store the cord.
3. The full length (approx. 25') of the cord is on the ground even if you only need 5'. Trip hazard.
4. You have drag the cord out of it's storage place instead of simply pulling the cord out.
5. When putting away the cord you have handle and generally coil the full 25' of cord instead of simply pushing the amount you have out back in.
As far a Darwin's concern about insects. Yes, there is that. However, the only insects I've had in my trailer are a few spiders, and the flying kind. That's very few spiders, maybe 4 or 5 over the almost 7 years of Scamping.
Just something more to think about before jumping onto the "change this" band wagon.
