Perfect for the RV Owner that stores a motor home, camper, travel trailer or pop-up trailer and wants electricity close by, especially for a heater that will help prevent moisture and mildew from forming. Panel includes a 50 Amp receptacle and branch circuits: 1 pole, 20 Amp and 2 pole, 50 Amp as well as a 20 Amp GFCI duplex receptacle. Safe and easy to install for the do-it-yourselfer because it is factory wired and completely assembled. The unique cover design allows the cord to be used when the door is closed.

This will probably be OK. The only issue I have is that it is labeled an "RV" product - most motorhomes (including mine), that use 50-amp service, have a 50-amp male plug that has a hefty handle on the plug to facilitate un-plugging. This box doesn't have enough depth in front of the recepticle to allow the weather-proof door to close when the cable is in place ! I solved this by cutting the nice handle off of the plug...

Review 2 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
The Panel was exactly what I was looking for and at a good price point, however it claim's easy installation ,true if you have some electrical background. ( I am an electrician of 38 years). Some modifications had to be made to bring it up to code.

Review 3 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
The box is well built and equipped, install was somewhat easy once the wire was routed inside the box. Had a lot of problems getting the wire routed in the box though, the two punch outs on the bottom are just below the two outlets and whether or not you use the left one or right one the outlet interferes with the wire. Used 6/3 to wire the box due to the length of the run and as a result I had to bend the 110 outlet brackets to get the wiring installed. Wish they would have considered that in the design, that aside it is a good box and would buy it again.
Pros: good features, Sturdy
Cons: not designed to wire from the bottom

Review 4 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
I bought this for my new camper. I had install a service for it with a small receptacle box. It made a tight fit when plugging the 50amp service cord up and it wasn't very weather proof. When I add a surge protector it was too much weight for it. So I redone it and bought this service panel and it work out great. The cord comes out the bottom allow you to close the door and you can lock it to keep the kids away. Great little panel.
Pros: Easy to Use, Clear Instructions, Nice Design, Easy Installation
Cons: no cons

Review 5 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
This is a well made product and worked perfectly for my install. It is also a great value when compared to the prices of its competition. In my opinion, you would not be getting better quality by purchasing one of the "name brands". One minor complaint. The door / latching mechanism works so well that you will need to use both hands to unlatch and open the access door (hold down the bottom latch while pushing the door upwards on its sliding hinges). This should not be an issue for the home user. If you are doing a commercial install and will have an occasion to "check" inside a bunch of these on a regular basis (like an RV Park) you may want to evaluate other brands for one-hand access.

Review 6 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
We had this box installed outside at a location in another state by an electrician. Although the 50 amp receptacle and branch circuits work, the cover door/lid was too narrow to plug in the 50amp Hubbell Connector on our Class A & close the door and the hole does not align to allow the lid to close - completely eliminating the weatherproof feature. When we contacted Connecticut Electric, they were defensive and suggested we replace the Hubbell on our bus! We do not recommend this product if weatherproofing is important.

Review 8 for 60 Amp RV Panel with 50 Amp Receptacle, Breakers & GFCI Duplex
This product should win an award for excellence in design engineering simplicity, as it is a perfect example of form and function.
Aesthetics are the best I have seen at any price (this sells at several other vendors for two to three times more), and integration of the components/interface all add up to the perfect utility box.
This is manufactured in China, but I have done many installs with American made products and consider it to be of quality equal to and better than most made in USA, as most USA products use foreign manufactured components anyway.
The housing of this utility box is solid built of heavy gauge steel with a highly weather resistant powder-coat finish, which, while not stainless steel (in appearance or actuality), has a nice looking Connecticut Electric logo painted on its face cover. Anyone expecting stainless at this price, or at all, has unrealistic expectations,- and the specifications are not misleading,- as they objectively refer to finish appearance, as do many appliances.
Competitively priced, well packed and quickly shipped, easy installation, - this was an exceptional deal.
