FYI, The male recepticle should be in a junction box as well. They make a recessed version so it is not sticking out of the wall as pictured in some of the previous posts. This is code in my area, but may not be in others.

Don't misunderstand-- I am wholeheartedly in favor of a homeowner being able to perform work on their own house. But anyone installing anything electrical should have a basic understanding of the electrical code.

Furthermore, if you are under the impression that the insurance company puts your bottom line before theirs, I think you are sorely mistaken. The only thing an insurance company loves better than subrogating against a 3rd party to recoup your claim is not paying it at all.

Sorry Tim,

It wasn't personal. Just that my abilities are more than the typical DIYer. It's the The World Will End If posts that just irk me. I had already agreed that the wall mount mall (RV Connector) was probably the best work around in this situation.
