    Hi Dante,
    I understand your concern with the various electrical plug in pedestals. The RV park electrical outlet pedestals should be installed properly, UL approved, and NEC Code compliant for the application and environmental conditions where they are located. And as you have pointed out, the receptacle outlets should be covered appropriately.
    Thank you for sharing this information with us,
    Dave

    I see that most pedestals in RV parks are the flip up and plug in type. I was at a park recently and the pedestal 30 amp plug in is from underneath with no covers. The moisture seems to build up on the plug in unit. My question is has this type of pedestal unit been declared unsafe or what would a best practice be when encountering these types of panels.
