I checked into it some. The electrician forum consensus was it's not a National Electrical Code (NEC) violation in the US to install an outlet in a closet. http://www.electriciantalk.com/f5/cl...ceptacle-1914/
The risk is associated with ventilation - producing a lot of heat in a confined space could generate a fire. Or there could be an explosion hazard if there were trapped propane or something in there and an arc. However, it occurs to me that our trailers are basically rolling closets themselves!
I will probably get the 12V B&D vac. It has a nice long cord 16' that can reach most everywhere, and it isn't going to run out of gas after a couple minutes of use. I actually have the Dyson Root 6 portable
but it lasts only about 5 minutes.
