cherring,

looks like you would need a cast aluminum cover.

most likely a crouse hinds hinged cover with a spring loaded cap. -or- a screw on cover with a small chain to keep from loosing the cap.

i would suggest going to an electrical suply house with that photo and tell them you need a cover.

then the fun begins! you can page trough catalogs and try to find a replacement.

I'm not familiar with that model. Is that the way the electric supply was originally?

I don't think it's orginal but I'm not sure. That's the way it came to me. It is much different than my '60 and '61.

Is the power plug fixed in the chassis? Or is there a cord inside that is attached and the plug is jammed in the skin?

If nothing else you could convert it to a marine shore power connection and get a chrome plated one. Then you would have the same type of detachability but it would lock in, be weatherproof, and 30 amp if needed.

I can just envision someone tripping over the power cord and unplugging you without knowing it!

Also,

Where on the trailer is this sticking out? It could be a leftover hole from a ball based radio antenna. I say that because of the 3 holes.

My concern would be if the plug would be heavy enough for the trailer. If your running A/C I believe you should have at least a 30 amp service and that really don't look heavy enough for that although I can't judge from the picture. I like the suggestion that thenewkid64 had as well.

This one is a 50 amp, but I would bet they are available in 30 amp too.

This plug is located in rear closet just before bathroom entry. The hole itself is located beneath corresponding window.

It doesn't have AC and I don't plan on installing it. We live way up in the mountains and it doesn't get hot enough to need one. Our camping ventures are in similiar altitudes.

It's not the radio antenna -- I have it and it's located on the front of the Airstream.

Thats the original 30a feed. The hoels from the ball mount antenna are more spread out. Heres a pic of the antenna mount.

Sorry, picked the wrong pic. Anyone need an old KH hydraulic controller? Free for postage.
