NOTE - The following mod was originally submitted to the Tech Rally group on Yahoo by Ray Wilkes in August 2004. PDF (254KB)  In function it is very similar to the Exterior Power Inlet but without the necessity of cutting a hole in the wall of the vehicle.

Simple Shoreline Conversion

This shoreline conversion, which installs a male and female connector in the hitch area, provides a simple method of connecting to a campsite power outlet -- without having to open the rear “outback” door or without pulling the electric shoreline through the outback floor.  This arrangement retains the original assurance that the campsite power and the generator power will never both be hooked up at the same time, protecting both the generator and the vehicle 115volt electrical system.

  1. Pull out the original shore line to maximum length, and cut it in two at a point 12” beyond the hitch.

  2. Splice the Male connection to the original short part of the shoreline that will stay connected to the vehicle.

  3. Splice the female fitting to the cut end of the longer section of the original shore line.

  4. Plug an adapter into the Generator Outlet electrical box.

  5. Plug A 6 ft. long extension cord into this adapter and bring the other end down to the hitch area.

  6. Drill four small holes and secure the male end of the shore line to the underside of the plastic bumper, using plastic tie straps.

  7. Use other plastic tie straps, up under the bumper & frame to secure the electric lines to prevent them from contacting hot parts, like the muffler, and keep them from dragging."
