Detachable Power Cord Kit

I found this kit the perfect solution to a problem. When pulling the power cord out of its storage place. In my trailer, the cord wrapped around the back of the water heater. The water heater has a bypass pipe kit on it and the cord could rip a valve apart. So installing a detachable power cord was the solution.

This would also solve the water intrusion problem someone had with their Lil Snoozy while traveling through a rain storm.

I put that on mine, I love it. It also keeps critters from marching up the cord and into the camper. I ended up taking the plug that comes in the kit off of my factory cord, bought a cord with a 90* turn down for less stress on the fiberglass, then put an outlet on the end of the factory cord so I can use it as an extension.

I'm lost Jared. If you have time to take a picture of it, I'd love to see it to give me a better idea of how to do this.

Otherwise it sticks out like this, and I could see the fiberglass flex a bit, plus its in the way more.



I also doubled the amount of screws that hold it on. It's a great upgrade, IMHO. I much prefer just winding it up and setting it in the cabinet.
