65' overlander power connector mod?

Currently our overlander has the 30amp power cord coiled in the one stop center behind the rear hatch. Problem is that when you hook up, the hatch needs to be off exposing the Convienence Center to the elements. The overlander also has a plate riveted on the street side that says "This connection is for 110-125 Volt AC service". What was this for? Would there be any wires behind this plate?

Could I install one of those marinco plugs in that location? I'd like to install something like this:

To do this project, would I cut the cord and hard wire into the back of the new marinco connector? Thanks for yalls input.

No wires behind it. Just tells you the trailer is wired for 110-125 volts AC service. If this label is adjacent to the compartment where your wiring is or even if you have access to the area above and behind the label; I don't see why you couldn't install the plug. Leave the label on to identify the power requirements for the trailer.
