Stainless steel GFI outlet covers

Airstream has a full line of outdoor stainless steel covers available with the exception of one for a 110v gfi outlet. I have seen one or two on trailers and would like to get one for my 27 foot 2019 Tommy Bahama, any ideas where to find one??

A marine supply might have them but meanwhile what's wrong with this one?:https://airstreamsupplycompany.com/p...-outlet-cover/

edit: changed "would" to "might", marine supply has vertical but didn't see horizontal in SS

That's the one I put on our FC. Pretty easy install. We bought it at Jackson Center.

Looks great. Just ordered one. I suspect that our current cover is letting in moisture and causing the GFI to trip.

One thing to keep in mind when adding any stainless fittings is make sure they don't come in contact with the aluminum or you can get corrosion from dissimilar metals together. I know this from experience

Mine came with a foam gasket to keep the SS off the aluminum and provide a seal. The foam gasket has adhesive on one side and A/S told me the adhesive sticks the gasket to the SS not on the aluminum. Kinda counter-intuitive as there is adhesive on the overlapping part of the gasket that faces out.

There is also a 2nd gasket that goes inside the cover to 'seal' the outlet. It took a long time for that gasket to form and make a decent seal over the outlet.
