JR Products RV Wiring - Cable Hatch - 372E7133-A Review


Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the locking electrical cable hatch for your RVs. Now you can see, this is going to come in either black or white. Whichever one matches your color scheme on your RV better. They are the exact same product, same dimension, same materials, and just in those different colors.

As you can see, they do have different part numbers. You want to make sure that you are getting the one that is going to work with your RV. So, these are a locking box. You can see, they do come with the key, so that we can get this door locked. Protect our electrical cords from any sort of theft or tampering.

Having our electrical cords tucked away inside our RV is going to help protect them from the elements and from vermin that might like to chew on those cords.So, it's going to give us some extra protection there. One thing I really like about these is that you do have the solid door option, but then on the inside, we also have this little cutout that's going to allow us to run our cables through, even when the door is closed. This will accept both 30-amp and 50-amp cords. So we can have those run out, make sure that we don't have to have the whole door open to have those cords coming out. These boxes are resistant to UV rays, road salts, and acids.

So they're going to hold up well, do a good job for us. We're not going to have to worry about them breaking down. They are made here in the USA. If that gives you a little bit more confidence in their quality, I do want to give you a few measurements here for our dimensions.We're going to be looking at a height of right about six and a half inches. A width of seven and five-eighths.

Our collar depth is going to be just over an inch and a half, about one and nine sixteenths of an inch. As far as our cutouts, what we're going to need in our RV to get this installed, it's going to be right at about four and three-quarters of an inch. You can see that's a little bit more than our measurement here, but we do like to have a little bit of wiggle room there to make sure it's going to fit. So when you're cutting out the hole in your RV, you do want to focus on that four and three-fourths of an inch measurement. And then our width, it's going to be right at five and seven-eighths. Again, just leaving a little bit of wiggle room there to make sure that everything slides in easily.If you don't already have a way of getting these installed, we do sell some installation kits that have butyl tape to make sure that everything is sealed nice and tight. You're not going to have water get in from the outside, around the edges or anything. So, might look into that. Overall, think this is going to be a great option to get your cords up out of the way, make sure that they're protected from both weather, animals, and potential thieves, so that they're always there when you need them. That's going to complete our look at the JR Products, locking electrical cable hatch for your RV.
