Installing Addional 110 v. Recepacles

Hello, Again, Everybody,

Well, chair mod installation is successfully behind us. Next project is
running additional electric into that end (rear end) of the slider.

Anybody have any experience with that? We understand that the "proper"
way to do this would be to run the iines behind the walls, but that doesn't
sound like a DIY project. Seems like running glue-on conduit along the back
and side wall of the slider would work pretty well. Biggest trick seems to be
the tapping into the existing recepacle under the dinette table, and still
make it look good.

So anybody out there ever try to do this? Appreciate any and all advice.
(Planning to install two recepacles, actually; one under the window, and the
second one around the corner on the side wall.)

Thanks in advance.

Dennis

You should be able to do the whole job with on-wall wiring materials. They make surface mount boxes for the receptacles, and they also make one that has no back so you can mount it to an existing receptacle and then run your conduit out to your new locations.

I am in the middle of rehabing an old house and we are using those surface mount boxes a lot.

I am in the process of doing something like this, but I'm adding a separate circuit.

I am going to convert my 30-amp attached power cable to a detachable one. I am going to add a 20-amp twistlock 110-volt receptacle inside that existing power door on my 2499. That power door is under my sofa.

I will run separate line from the receptacle to a single circuit 20-amp breaker box. From there, I will split the line for two outlets... one in the area near the kitchen for use with things like my bread maker or a ceramic heater. I want to run the other out under my awning for use with electric skillets, etc.

Surface Mount Electric

Steve and Dave,

After reading both of your responses, I ran out to Home Depot. I found
all the electric hardware that you referred to, and it certainly looks like
its entirely do-able. It looks especially like the bottomless surface box
is the place to start. I see that the conduit fits into a punch-out at the
base of the box. I can do this. Thanks for the help.

Dave, good luck on your project. Sounds a little more ambitious than I'm
willing to tackle.

Thanks again.

Dennis
