Re: electrical outlets

The other thing you can do, is to run a generator, then you'll have 110 whenever you want, and all your sockets will work. Only thing we
"need" 110 for generally, is my wife's hair dryer! Which when we boondock, just isn't available!

Okay, this is a very old thread, but I've been searching and come up empty.

I don't know what this thingy is called... but it's basically a boot that covers the trailer plug end of the umbilical. Keeps the crud and moisture out during storage.

Since the umbilical hangs down from the loft, tilting is kinda hard to do. Still looking for the official name of this boot. I know someone on the board bought one and uses it. I know they're inexpensive, like less than $6. One and done. Opps two and done... I have two trailer plugs to protect.

Thank you.
