Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MasterDaniel904 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lee 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JennyJenJen 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by possum49 It's not bad for the price.
Overall, I wish the box included a cutoff switch, but that wasn't offered. When I opened the package I found that the black plastic (the plug in) was cracked. I went ahead and used it rather than go to the trouble of returning it to the store for an exchange.

Wanted to set up an outside outlet so we could plug in our motorhome. This had everything I wanted in one package.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Heavyhanded 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12thManCookers Great Product for a Great Price.
This was exactly what I needed to be able to accommodate guests staying at my house. It was easy to install and worked great.
