I would use an aluminum setup like the one I got. It is an outdoor outlet cover with a pretty good gasket and a rather strong spring for closure sealing. Yours is down lower than mine, but should work. It appears that down there you should have room for a proper outlet box behind the skin and everything could easily be done to wet area residential standards.

The aluminum ones at Home Depot are waterproof and they polish up nice. I also put a 12volt outlet there.

How did you polish the cast aluminum. I tried a small spot and it came out kind of splotchy and not really an appearance close to anything else on the AS. Thus, I painted with the Rustoleum "bright aluminum".

Maybe a different alloy?????? Did you clear coat afterwards? Pics?????

Nice "ac outlet" dznf0g. I worked with the little clips and stuck mine back in with caulk and sponge gasket all around it - certainly not picture worthy! I will start looking for an outlet like the one shown.

By the way, any potential Airstream owners questioning quality at this point, let me share my observation on a new class A Vista in March. I was looking at this big nice RV as a consideration with full-time thoughts on my mind when I had to chuckle to myself over the crooked outlets both inside and out. Then when looking at the front laptop computer slideout on the dash of the passenger seat, the bracket came loose and jammed the slide. So, my thoughts are that ANY RV is a labor of love. Its just that some have more to go wrong than others. At least we have support on here!

Who/where is HD on that outlet dznf0g?

Home Depot. It's pretty generic.
