Default Backfeeding electrical system

I want to run a dehumidifier in my FF210UDS when it is in storage in coastal North Carolina. My question is; If I make up a double (male) ended extension cord can I backfeed the electrical system with 110V through the exterior 15 Amp receptacle on the door side of the TT?

You might be able to, but you would bypass the main circuit breakers and why? Why not just plug into shore power?

If you have power at you storage location. this is a much safer option. https://www.amazon.com/Camco-55223-1...30+amp+adapter

Making a suicide cord is just that. The danger that is present far out weighs any gains wiring it that way. The male power cord that feeds the trailer will become hot and if someone touches that.

Just get the above adapter and plug the dehumidifier into an outlet in the camper. Plus, it will keep you batteries charged.

One of these will solve your problem without 'cheating' and no need to run the power cord that came with your trailer.
