Shore Cord Receptacles
Mounting this under vehicle (EuroVan) back of unit would be subject to moisture from rain splash. Do I need to mount in a waterproof enclosure for this type use?
Yes, a weatherproof enclosure can be purchased at any hardware store for this receptacle to insure that moisture and the elements stay out.
The receptacle itself has a watertight cap but this is for marine use. While it would probably be fine I expect there are a couple of variances that warrant extra protection. First is that this will be mounted on a vehicle where other hazards beside rain and road spray exist. If this receptacle is powered by an inverter that is on when the vehicle is running then you have a hot receptacle while driving. If there is a potential for icing that is another factor. I would suggest a weatherproof housing mounted higher up on the vehicle to avoid both contaminants and collision damage. A hardware store should have such an enclosure and if not then try an electrical supply shop.
Thanks for the info, I will rethink how I will do this.
I would try to protect it as much as possible from the spray. I would also coat all the connections with a water proof Anti-Oxidation grease to prevent corrosion.
well, it does mount on the side of a boat and subject to water splashing on it quite often without damage or problems.
Thank you I will rethink
It would be better if you did mount it in a waterproof enclosure since the back of the unit is normally not exposed to the elements.
The unit seals the hole with a gasket. The connector area is waterproof.I have mine installed on my boat (salt water), for quite a while, and I have had no issues.
Our shore line is mounted about 4 feet up, on the side of an ambulance. this allows the cover to drop over and thoroughly protect the plug-in from water. mounting the plug-in under a vehicle will allow the cover to fall open.
The item itself is completely waterproof. i used it as an emergency power input into my home. Very similar to your application.
Screw hole size center to center the distance on the hole pattern?
BobThe screw holes are 2-7/16" center to center both vertically and horizontally.
Marinco 30A 125V Standard Power Inlet
This was a direct replacement part for one that broke. It lasted over twenty years in the Florida sun which says a lot for the construction and durability.
Part was a exact match to what I had
The part was just what I expected. It was an exact match to what I had. So it was easy to install.
great quality item
Marinco makes great quality products, this is the best to use on your boat, a little expensive, but when it comes to your boat and electricity you want the best.
