MARINCO has many models. The stainless steel style, or the round one used by Markdoane, will look very cool on your vintage trailer.

These are very well made appliances.

Mine will be painted out, except for the central stainless face plate, blending into the Jet Black portion of the Argosy's new paint job.

Thank you and I will post pictures of my completed project.

The hose bib/inlet doesn't need to be surface mounted, you can recess them behind a door if you like.

Just to add my 2 cents. I just replaced my pigtail with the Marinco Stainless Steel Female outlet from Vintage Trailer Supply. I found it cheaper elsewhere, but Vintage has been good to work with.

I thought about the shorter pigtail solution, but had two reservations that pushed me over to the outside outlet. Firstly, not that I plan to drive off with my cord still attached to the shore power I thought this solution would cause the least amount of internal damage. Secondly, the Marinco outlets are water proof. The pigtail would most likely have an outside connection that could be prone to weather issues.

I don't think either of those issues are really important, so I will only rest on the fact that the Marinco Stainless outlet looks really cool! Definitely nautical.

So far as I can tell, there's no such thing as a "simple project"...

Or as a friend of mine said once, "Everything is complicated, when you get into it."
