    Extra Kitchen Outlet

    I'm sure a lot of my questions are old hat for a lot of you guys, but this is my 1st 5th Wheel and I'm one notch below being totally overwhelmed.
    I would like to have a extra outlet either on the wall behind the kitchen counter or at the end of the counter. It's just for the Keurig and I don't want a cord hanging down from the upper cabinet.
    I did it on my Outback that I'm trading, but I tied to the outdoor outlet by the entrance and ran the wire though the back of the lower cabinetry.
    If any of you have done this, I would appreciate knowing how you did it.
    I'm good with electrical stuff as I own a marine business. I added a second 30A service to my Outback and also a separate 20A service to power space heaters.

    It would help to identify your model to us and where exactly you are referencing. Likely a no go on the wall unless an interior partition. Should be doable in a cabinet even if you have to come up from the underbelly.

    What geotex1 said about your model - it would help - a lot.

    I added a popup outlet on my kitchen counter. I tapped into the line going along the bottom of the cabinets to the TV outlet. It took some wiggling to get in there, but I got it done.

    Where did you get your source power and where did you run the wiring. I only need an outlet at the end of the counter. On my other trailer, I pulled the microwave and found all of the wiring going to the cabinets.

    Sorry, I forgot to include the link. If you type in "Pop up power outlet for countertop" in Amazon, there are hundreds of options. Here is the link for the one pictured.

    Sorry, I don't have this model trailer so I would only be speculating but it appears the power distribution panel is located on the interior wall to the left of the sink. You could tie directly into this and then run your power wire thru the base of the cabinets in then up to you final location. Doesn't seem to difficult once you find out were to tie into. You may even be able to gain access to that from the front storage by removing the false wall....

    I think there is an outside electric outlet in the counter area. It's hard to tell from photos if it is high enough to be above floor level. Maybe if it is you can pull it off and see if you can route another cable to the inside and tap off of that.
