Today I installed a 110 Volt 30 Amp camper RV outlet. I had to use an adapter cord to be able to plug in the socket tester.

As part of a larger project I recently installed several new outlets which I am submitting for this BB.  Sorry the images aren't close-up shots.  At the time for some reason I was just focusing on documenting the overall project and taking wide angle shots.  Hopefully they will work.  In particular I hope you are able to see clearly enough that the correct lights on the socket tester are lit!  The larger project is creating an exhaust system with 7 inlets/individual fans which are in two rooms that will all be turned on/off with a 3 way switch.  For this I wired up a total of 5 new outlets, 4 in the main room, and one in another room on the other side of the wall.

I realize now I only showed the tester working on one of the outlets.  While I did verify they all worked properly I fully accept if only one is counted for this BB.  (That's all I need for my sand badge.  The others would be duplicates for straw.)

Here is a photo of the main room up above the drop ceiling where the outlets will be installed. An additional one will be installed in the room on the other side of the wall.

Here is a quick swap of an AC outlet. Nothing in particular is wrong, it just doesn't match the new paint scheme.
