Hey folks, today we are going to continue on the electrical system on the teardrop trailer! We add 2 custom plugs for the rear galley and the to the main part of the front cabinet. I think they turned out great! Super excited to get this checked off the list!

30Amp twist on outlet plug, this will work in all RV parks.

The 30Amp outlet threaded on

110v GFI shown in the back galley, drawers will be added to the left side later
