Actually I think the connections you need are available. I think the yellow tape on the GFI outlet covers the connections you want. They should be labled - LOAD - one should be gold (hot/red or black wire) and one silver (neutral/white wire). Connect the Romex bare wire to ground/green.

At the other end of the romex connect the new outlet the same way.

Right. I didn't do that the first time around... used the GFI duplex' two screws next to the plug-in holes the factory used. Assembled everything, set it back in place in trailer, and...total nada! Took it back out to the workbench, unscrewed it all, noticed a white wire seemed not quite in its hole enough, perhaps pulled out un-noticed when I unscrewed to add Y connector for new leads. Then read that yellow tape across the other end of the GFI... moved Y connections over, re-assembled the unit. At supper time it's still on the workbench.

In between all this my 8 gauge + and ground leads came off their eye loop connectors, ugly soldering needed repairs, etc. Where the hell did the time go?

Will install sometime this morning. Still have to put furnace back.

If you get nothing - reset the gfi - it may have popped at some point.

That would have worked had the other wire not come out BUT you would not have had gfi protection on the remote outlet.

Way to go, when the going gets tough the tough get going A little difficult there at one point but in the end sucess.

Now you've got me thinking that I should open up my inverter and make the connections for the outlet feed internal instead of using a jumper plug. sigh

Congratulations.

For others who do this - I *strongly* recommend romex over the wire Myron used, and there should be a ground wire from the new outlet back to the GFI.

(This looks too much like the ETI 12V wire - and if you cut it while hot it could be exciting.)

It depends on where the inverter is. If it is buried under the bench I think an external plug is fine - maybe even preferred. If it shows as Myron's does then I like the internal feed.

2X. Code frowns on individual wires unless encased in conduit, etc. Of course there was "Knob & Tube" wiring, I doubt your trailer is old enough to qualify.

If you want stranded, boating "Romex" is available.

What he said, absolutely. You don't want to be convinced of the errors in a wiring method by watching your fiberglass trailer burn, or ER treatment for electrical burn or electrocution.
