Furrion 30A TV inlet questions

I am going to be installing a 30 amp Furrion Inlet, the round stainless steel one.

Does the 2 1/2" hole go through both skins? or a smaller hole on the inner skin?

Do you use screws long enough to catch the inner skin?

My plan was to do it on the curb side. I bought a 36' cord for that reason. My thinking is although a bit of a pain it would be saver. That is, the pathway left between the street side and the campground power is usually or can be restricted. When you come off the trailer it forms a loop as the cord drops down. My thinking is the cord would lie flat as it crossed the walking by path.

What do you think, any merit?

I've never had an issue with the street side inlet and wouldn't be motivated to move it.

The furion had the same screw and body dimensions. No additional drilling required. It goes through the outer skin only and the house romax goes through the inner skin. I do recall having to trim some plastic off the Furion to get it to sit flush 100%. I bought some slightly oversized stainless screws to cure an enlarged skin hole and sealed everything well.

The old 1973 Tradewind had the in let in the bumper box on the curb side to give it a short run to the breaker box. It was hard wired. The cord stored coiled up in the bumper with the stinky slinky which I never liked. I bought a 36' cord to make the long run but I don't have to.
