  1. Dave Rongey says:

    Motor Homes typically have a cord and plug which is stowed or located in a side compartment of the coach. When traveling it is common to stay a day or more at different locations which have RV Hook Ups. The RV Cord is used to plug into an exterior RV Receptacle with the same electrical configuration. The cost to connect the RV is usually included with the Daily Fee while staying at the RV Park.
