My 1970 LY has the power cord in the bumper storage area. zz

This cord can be plugged into any correct RV receptical or with an adapter to a 15 amp regular one. zz

The cord is in the rear bumper and should have a RV type plug on the end.
The plug will not plug into a standard outlet but there is an adapter that will allow you to plug into a standard 120VAC outlet at your home.

While the plug looks like a 220VAC plug it is a special RV plug and NOT intended for 220V.

If you plug it into a normal 15A or 20A 110V outlet using an adaptor - which you can get at WalMart - make sure it's only to run the lights and a few other items. Do not use the adaptor setup to run the AC - it cannot handle it and may damage the AC.

A new power outlet for the RV can be bought at Home Depot and wired in for a nominal fee by a certified electrician.

Congrats and welcome to the Air Forums.
