Microwave outlet replacement

Would anyone know where to start looking to replace the microwave outlet in a 2015 17ft? It doesn't appear to be anything standard looking.

Thanks,
Emile

Hello Emile, long time no see!

Do you have a photo perhaps?

It maybe a 20 amp socket vs a 15? They look different....

Hi: Slickheadhunter... All I know is that the microwave is required to be on a dedicated circuit!!! Alf

It should be a standard RV plug that has little white wings that turn out to grab the paneling. I can only assume that an RV dealer would have one.

I managed to get the numbers off the existing outlet, looks like a 15A-125V legrand SC-85-R! It's a bizarre looking outlet.
I believe I found one on line.

Thanks for the help,
Emile

Ah, it's an SCD outlet. Escape started using them some time ago. The wire passes through it and is "tapped" by the terminals. You're supposed to use a special and rather pricey tool to attach these, but you don't have to. You can use a screwdriver to push the wires into the contacts, once the insulation is trimmed back. I'm not a fan of SCDs, but I'll spare you that debate. It's been discussed here before, several times.

Just so you know, you can just wire in a conventional outlet if you like.

How would I secure a regular outlet? This foolish thing holds on to the particle board.

You can always add a piece of paneling inside the microwave cabinet area to make it thicker and better to secure to...
