Answer: 
That's how I installed it. Make sure to buy a tube of caulk as the unit sits proud of the wall and you'll want to seal it. There are two, multi-diameter, knockouts on the back lower part of the housing.

Answer: 
I did this with a short length of plastic conduit bridging the knockout on the back of the box to a junction box installed inside. Metal would have worked too but this was easily sealed with silicone.

Answer: 
Noted that the box and outlet shown on-line is not the same as the one I purchased. Normally it is not suggested to mount a box on the outside wall and run through the back of the box as water could run down the back side. The box I purchased stands off the wall by ⅛ inch. You would need a nipple or best bet, come out the bottom of the box with an LB fitting and then into the house. that way you can seal Read More

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer,
Below is the response from the MFG.
"The U013 is a receptacle so there is only a line side. The load would be the plug that you would plug into it."
Hope this information helps.

It's a receptacle for a plug. That's the definition of temporary. Permanent would be a wiring block.

Answer: 
I assume like any outlet where extension cords are used, they are intended as temporary and not permanent solutions as wires can weather, decay and be tripped on. But some people leave these hooked up for weeks or months at time... so "temporary" is a relative term.

Answer: 
Just FYI, if your RV is equipped with the original 30Amp. cord that it came with, you have no problem. The RV cord has a right angle design at it's male end and the box is made for that clearance to be more than enough to close the cover. Hope this info. helps.

30 Amp Temporary RV Power Outlet is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal Is just what we needed haven't plugged in yet but will soon.
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well, it looks like it works. Bought this for an outdoor RV hookup at home. It works. BUT, it's the details that make it a bad choice. First, the front flip up cover doesn't stay up. There is no sliding or latching or any means to hold it up. Okay, once you've plugged into it, it doesn't need to stay up. But working on it, or for any reason one might need to inspect the receptacle, the lid should stay open. Annoying but not terminal. The real issue with this unit is the wire connections to the outlet. THEY ARE UNDIFFERENTIATED S C R E W S! When is the last time you tried to bend stranded #8 (in my case) or #10 (code) wire to put it under a SCREW? And this was for a 110 outlet, no means of knowing which should be hot, which neutral. Guess and test afterwards??? I got lucky the first time around and got it right. Then the screws are in folded copper connectors that slide out of the housing! This would have been rinky dink in the 1950's. With today's designs this is just ridiculous. If you have a crimper and some spades that fit on your wire, plan on using them. Seriously, if you really need to buy this, take a flat head (Really! Flat Head) screw driver to the store, open it up, and see what you are up against. Open it nicely, cause you are most likely going to want to close it back up neatly and put it back on the shelf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a 30 Amp RV plug! Just what I was looking for to power my RV while parked at home. The 12ga cord I was using on a 15a circuit kept tripping my breaker while running the AC, so needed something that could handle more juice. This plus a $10 pigtail and a $6 breaker was all I needed to set this up. I used the 6ft A/C pigtail with 3 10ga wires. Since this is only 120v, you only need a singe pole breaker, not the double pole. Luckily I only had to install this next to my electric panel outside, so I didn't have to run any additional cord. It does have a hole where you can padlock the lid closed so no one will steal your cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly built I installed two of these RV power outlets on pressure treated 6x6 posts and one on the outside wall of a shed at a rural property. They're easy to install and solidly built. One thing I learned in the process that may be helpful to others is that the National Electrical Code does not require GFCI protection on exterior 30 Amp receptacles like these.
Date published: 2012-06-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy receptacle, stay away While the box is nice enough, the included receptacle is very thin plastic and it's easy to crack this while installing the 8 or 10-gauge wire needed for this application. The mounting holes in a standard TT-30R receptacle you need to fix a broken one do not fit the holes in the box - get out your drill. Spend a little more and get better quality!
Date published: 2015-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected I installed this outlet so that I could power my Airstream travel trailer when it's parked in my driveway. Works great! Note: if you have a power cord with a handle (see photo), the door won't close all the way (see photo). But since the door covers the top, it still provides moderate protection from sun/rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I decided to run a 30 amp circuit to temporarily power my Casita RV when it was parked in the driveway and had no idea that there was an outlet that was specifically designed for this purpose. I was glad to see that Home Depot not only sold them but had them in stock at the Local store. I went down there and bought the outlet along with a 30 amp breaker, conduit and wire to install it. Once I got it installed I checked the polarity and then plugged in my RV. It works great and is designed to be weather resistant so rain or shine its good to go.
