Galley retractable receptacle

The early 19's don't have a receptacle to conveniently use with countertop appliances like the newer trailers along the front upper area of the base cabinet. Cords were getting draped around the bulkhead and the mattress interferes. Also not GFI protected. Became inspired by cpaharley and Jim Bennett's retractable receptacles so decided to add one. Away from the sink was best and with the flush Dickinson cooktop there is a nice flat area for an appliance. Drilled a 3" hole. Routed wiring across the cabinetry and wired into the receptacle on the lower end of the cabinet by the door. This is GFI protected as it is downstream on the same circuit as the outside GFI so my new outlets are now also protected. Should provide greater versatility for power in the galley.

Yep. I have several variations in my Amazon cart. Itís by far the better solution to ETIís front-of-counter receptacle; which is easily bumped or disengaged when sliding by someone in the aisle way. There are several examples on this forum, that are good too.
