Smile 110 volt outlet in passenger area

We have a 2004 Land Yacht gas motorhome (30 ft with slide). A friend has a similar 2005 unit. In visiting with him, he told me that he found a 110 volt outlet behind the carpeted wood panel that is at floor level in front of the passenger seat (inside cockpit and behind firewall). The wood panel has a louver at floor level and a smaller louvered outlet near the top. The carpeted wood panel is secured with a phillips screw with a carpet colored head on each end of the panel (two screws total).

I have wished for a 110 volt outlet in the cockpit and now I know that there is one that is hidden, but can be easily accessed.

Wow, that's nice to know. Our problem is we had the LY recarpeted & can't see the screws. Do you think the outlet could be reached if we removed the large louvered piece near the floor? Where in that cavity is the outlet? I'm thinking we could reach in & plug in an extension cord, running it through the louvered cover.

Would that happen to be for the front tv outlet? If so it would be protected by a relay that kicks in when you go out of "park".

On my '95 LY 30 that's where I found the 12V converter, plugged into that outlet. (See this thread http://www.airforums.com/forums/f312...ere-90583.html) My converter died so I replaced it. Might be the reason it's kinda inaccessable, but still usable if needed.

Anyway, my 2 cents...

Dave

I haven't had a chance to check the outlet when on shore power.

I think the outlet could be reached if the large, louver is removed. Outlet on my rig is near the firewall on the lower right side.

Here's a trick a mechanic showed me. To find screws covered by your carpet, use a magnet. I've tried it and it works, except for stainless screws.

Success!

Sam, I found an outlet exactly where you described. I removed the vent cover near the floor, put a flashlight in the cavity, saw nothing...so,I put a camera in the cavity & took a picture of the right side wall...Eureka! There was an unused outlet...nothing was plugged into it. I dropped an extension cord down from the top of the board to the outlet. It was then easy to reach in & plug the extension cord in. Before reattaching the vent cover, I tested the outlet. Yay, it works. I think it will make a good location for a charging station for phones, computers, etc. At some point I may try to fish the cord into the front cabinet. But, for now I'm happy to have the extra outlets.
Thanks for posting.

Becky

outlets

My pet peeve is the dark colored outlets !#@&*! When trying to find a black or dark brown outlet in dim light it's agravating. Also the locations,
(Above the sink at the back side of the mirowave, next to the cabinet behind the navigators seat and at the front door by the light switches and least used is the one on the front of the seat bottom in the dinette)
The one discussed in this forum is only usable by acrobats and the one in the rear engine compartment has alway baffled me. Must have been a disgruntled electrical desiger at Airstream.

Paul, when I was doing the kitchen/TV remodel I had to add a couple of new outlets, we have an RV supply store and the only colors they carried
were the dark outlets.
The outlet in front of the seat in the dinette was the one we found most inconvenient too. So I tied in to it and moved it above the back of the seat, it's a bit more convenient. I've added a pic so you could see.
As far as the outlet discussed in this thread, my converter is plugged into that.

Any reason why I can't use white or almond ones form my electrical supply box? Just another project for MY List.

The file/photo did not attach, probably too big and got kicked out. The box is called "Lokout" and was probably used for the TV. Same location more towards center.
