Installation


To complete this DIY project, you will also need:

Furrion 30A Shore Power Inlet Plug (F30INS-BS-AM Black)

1. Connect the 10/3 AWG Wire to the 30A Furrion Inlet


Also refer to: 30A Furrion Shore Power Inlet User Manual (pdf)

Remove 1½” of the outer jacket, strip off 5/8″ of colored insulation, then connect to the corresponding colored holes:

Slide the rear cover over the terminals, seat the locking feet and turn clockwise to lock the 10/3 AWG wire into place:

2. Install the 30A Furrion Inlet into the Entry Box


Feed the 10/3 AWG wire through the Furrion’s gasket & entry box, route the wire in a way to make a drip loop (scroll down for more info!):

Align the gasket and inlet. Install the 4 screws provided with the Entry Box. Tighten to slightly compress the gasket, but no need to overtighten:

Heads Up: Drip Loop!

Drip loops are designed to prevents water ingress into a connector and mitigate the risk of corrosion, which is often the cause of a bad connection (more resistance = overheat = fire hazard). Indeed, water from condensation (or such) flows down the wire and drips off at the lowest point. You can control where the water drips and evacuate, as shown in this cross-section view:

30A Furrion Shore Power Entry Box for Ford Transit D-Pillar (Without Drip Loop)

Our Entry Box features a “DRIP LOOP” tab that physically prevents from routing the 10/3 AWG wire without drip loop:

3. Remove The D-Pillar Cutout Cover


This can be done on the driver or passenger side. Driver side is shown below.

Grab an edge of the rubber cover:

Pull down to completely remove the cover:

4. Route the Extension Cord Inside the Van


Route the 10/3 AWG wire through the D-Pillar cutout:

Grab and pull the wire from inside the van:

5. Install the Entry Box into the D-Pillar


Start with the back or front side of the entry box:

Press on the opposite edge (squeeze) and push up to snap into place:

(To remove the entry box press on the back side first, then pull down.)

That’s it!

Electrical System Wiring


For years we routed the charger/converter’s power cord through the doors or through the D-Pillar cutout… It worked OK, but the Entry Box is definitely more convenient! We keep our charger/converter plugged to the entry box extension cord, then connect to the shore when needed:

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT


Do It Yourself.

We wanted a better shore power entry box for the Ford Transit, so we made one.

This is an homemade product.

Each part is individually 3D printed and assembled by us. This is not a mass-produced product. This is a crafted, hand-made product.

Low Volume.

We created this product for our own needs, to make just a few units. There is no way for us to ramp up the production and lower the price, unless we take it to injection molding manufacturing but that’s a whole another level we’re not considering at the moment.

Overall, super happy with product. My 2021 must have thinner sheetmetal than it was designed for, so I had to make two (2) gaskets to snug it up. I used the removed plug as a template and simply made gaskets from mtb inner tubes. Additionally, I used round vs flat outdoor power cord, so it was a bit more challenging to get the drip-dip into the box, but not a big deal. Being and aerospace mfg engineer with access to all the coolest 3d printers, I can attest solid design. For anyone who's not looking to add any holes to their rig, and who like, or don't mind, the shore-power location under the rig, this is the product to buy.

This is an ingenious solution for shore power entry: well-executed, well-built, fits perfectly, and overall easy to install. I have a few suggestions based on my experience. 1. Make sure to familiarize yourself with how wires can be fed from the D-pillar into the van. I had no idea. Remove the rubber cover and have a look through it. Maybe feed a wire snake from where you want it to enter. I actually fed the wire from the van interior into the D-pillar, then made all the connections to the power inlet. If you go this route, take care to thread all components onto the wires in the correct order! 2. I wish the mounting screws were a bit longer. Because of the thickness of the Furion gasket, it is challenging compress it enough so that the screw threads can grab onto the threaded inserts of the entry box. My arthritic hands had to compress the thing with a clamp! (see photo). This was the hardest part of installation for me. 3. There is a bit of interference from one of the wiring harnesses when opening the inlet door (see photo). Not a big deal, but a bit of a hassle. Maybe it would be better had I reversed the door opening side (hinge on RHS), but it's not worth the effort to me. 4. Finally, it will be a PITA to crawl under the van to attach a 30 amp power cord, especially in darkness or inclement weather. If I were planning on using shore power a lot, I would definitely go with a more traditional side-wall entry. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars; obviously this is a limitation that has nothing to do with the design or quality of the device, which are excellent.

    • Thanks, glad you like it 🙂

      It seems the tolerancing isn’t super tight on these D-pillar cutout! I especially noticed the flatness of the bottom surface varies a lot.
      And that’s actually the biggest challenge I had when designing the entry box: trying to come up with a design that accommodate the variation around the cutout. I spent a ton of time (and iterations) making sure it would fit on most vans, and that means on some vans the fit will be quite tight and on others the fit will be looser. But in any cases (tight or loose), the “snap” feature seems to do the job! No report of failure/problem with dozens of entry boxes into the wild for over a year 🙂

      Thanks for reporting back, data is invaluable.

      Cheers,
      Antoine

  2. J’ai bien reçu la commande et la boîte 30 Mao est parfaite. Merci

    • Génial, merci!

  3. Great product, one of the screws was shorter than the other three, but it worked.

  4. This is a creative way to get shore power into the van without making another hole in the body.

  6. Awesome solution for 30 A plug. I had bought a bracket and mounted plug to bumper and it was 1” lower than trailer hitch. First trip it scraped and broke connector. I really didn’t want to put hole in side of van and was quite happy for your solution. Thank you.
