Upgrade to a side power inlet?

I have a 1986 Sovereign with the 30A power cable in the rear bumper storage area shared with the sewage hoses. I was considering adding a side mounted power inlet from Marinco and storing my power cable inside one of the side storage doors.

What are the Pro / Cons of this approach? I've only had the cable in the trunk.

Pro
Not in with sewage
More accessible for repair

Con
cost to upgrade to the inlet and cable

I personally despise having the sewer hose share a compartment with anything else, cross contaminating everything. The rear bumper storage, for me is too precious to dedicate to the stinky slinky. So installed another, useful, storage tube underneath dedicated to that task - http://www.airforums.com/forums/f444...ge-171736.html

I used a Furrion 50 amp inlet and matching cordset. I prefer it's appearance over the Marinco.
Sexier somehow.

I did it on my safari. No drawbacks noted, but you have to have a way to get the wire from the new inlet to the breaker panel. You have to find a good spot for the inlet and be careful of wires or ac drain line between the skins to drill the holes. Use hole saws for clean cuts.
