dump hose and electric cord storage


I'm doing a complete redo of my 1969 Globetrotter which came to me with many parts already detached. Still and all, I should have made more photos before and during dismantling the remainder. Anyway, at the rear of my 1969 Globetrotter, there is a storage bin with hinged lid between the rear bumper and the back of the shell. Above this is an access door into the rear of the (now gutted) trailer. I'm guessing that maybe these are for storage of 30 amp power cord and hose for emptying tanks at dump station. Is this true? If so, which went into which? Also, what was the approximate size (length, depth and height) of the space available for storage behind the rear access door? Also, where did power cord actually enter the trailer?

Thanks for help on this,

Hi John,

On Little Girl (’72 Sovereign) the power cord was stored inside the bumper compartment. It was permanently attached to the trailer, and went through a hole in the shell inside the bumper compartment. It fed through the wall to the main breaker box on the port side of the trailer inside a bathroom cabinet.

From what I’ve seen, the bumper compartment was also intended to store the sewer hose. And anything else you might want in there.

The other access door you mention above the bumper on the wall was to an inside storage compartment. On Little Girl, this compartment was inside the vanity of the bathroom, under the bathroom sink. If memory serves, it was about 12 inches deep front to back, wider than the width of the door by a few inches, and a bit taller than the door. The nice thing is – you can pretty much make that storage compartment any dimension you want. Figure out what’s going to be installed there, and then plan on the storage space accordingly.

Has anyone relocated the power cord from inside the bumper compartment? If so where did you relocate? My compartment is a mess and I want to store the sewer hose under the trailer in PVC and empty the bumper compartment. Any Ideas? Thanks, Cynthia
