Help Identify this spider?

Went to unplug my rv the other day and found this little guy on the end of my plug. Looks like a brown recluse to me but I'm no expert. I live in Louisiana if that helps.

Judging by the tapered body I would say it's a grass spider but I'm no expert either. It would also be an unusual location for a Brown to set up in

Typically the brown recluse has a darker color with a very dark fiddle shape on its thorax (hence the nickname "fiddleback") and that doesn't look like a very good hiding place for a recluse.

The more I looked into it it appear to be a grass spider. The photos of the brown recluse all appear to have a rounded back end where this one is more of a point. Thanks for the responses.

Don't know but if it was on my plug it would be the very Flat Smashed Spider.

It appears to be a yellow sac spider, whose bite can be troublesome.

Although, just to be safe, here is the information on the brown recluse...it does look similar to your photo.

I think that is a recluse spider. They are poisonous and if bite you can get very sick.
