I can't figure out why rv manufacturers only give you one 110 outlet? So i added two more to my 28bhs one at each end of the tt. I connected to where the shore power connects to the tt so it wouldn't be on the tt circuit. I used a gcfi plug to make it safe.

No, you are not safe
. If you connected directly to the main wiring coming into the TT you have no circuit protection and if you overload the circuit you can creat a fire. The gfi is a good idea but somehow you need to get it to a breaker. You may be able to come off any of the existing, maybe there is one that is already outside, and connect your new ones into that circuit
. Please reconsider how you did this. Kirk

I think Kirk is right about adding a breaker.

Our 28RSS has 4 plugs, but there are times that I wonder about their placement. We have one in the bunkhouse, one in the bathroom, one by the couch and one near the sink, just wish one was by the dinette.

Hi Jim, hey I was thinking about the way you hooked in the outlets and think there is a easy fix. If you were to go to Lowes or home depot and buy a 2 circuit breaker box and replace the existing junction box with it, then wire your outlets to the new breakers this would give you the protection needed. I think the whole thing would cost aprox. 20-25 dollars to do. Do you think it's do able??? Kirk

OK, your last post clears this up for me. I thought you were saying you only had 1 outlet INSIDE the trailer
I was thinking, Man-glad I didn't buy a 2003! I have only 1 recepticle outside as well. Got 6 inside though
Good luck with the breakers. Sounds like good advice.
