Replacing an AC Electrical Outlet Beneteau

I'm starting a new electrical project on my 46' Beneteau Sailboat and I was hoping to get advice from someone who has done this before. I recently pulled out a power cord from a 110v AC receptacle outlet inside the boat and the entire assembly came out of the wall. I ordered a replacement pigtail outlet from Beneteau but I don't know what to expect when I change it out. Has anyone replaced one of these before? Are there any special tools or instructions I will need?

The boat also tripped a breaker/GFCI/fuse somewhere in the circuit that I haven't been able to locate as of yet. I have a new clamp multimeter that just arrived and I hope to track that problem down once the outlet is fixed.

Thanks.

Re: Replacing an AC Electrical Outlet Beneteau

Very timely post... I have a Beneteau plug to replace on my 49 but I have not done it yet. Mine got too hot from running an electric heater for too long. The plug plastic got discolored but I would rather be safe.

I assume it is just a plug in situation. You should be able to replace the whole assembly that you show in your last 2 pictures.

Re: Replacing an AC Electrical Outlet Beneteau

Update: This turned out to be an easy one. Trued off the power, pop off the interior panels, and the rest was straightforward.
