Extra Ports (USB & DC) - margygreen

Front Dash USB Ports and Second Battery Voltage Indicator

I installed a dual USB port and a voltage indicator in the front center dash. Both are connected to the second battery. I have since replaced the USB port with a dual USB with 2.5A for each port. These are used for charging our phones.

Not shown: I installed a hardwired cable so I can plug in my Garmin GPS directly to the car battery.

      Rear Cargo Area USB, 12V Dc, & ARB Fridge Engle Ports

      In the back wheel well storage compartment I installed a port for the ARB fridge. This is an Engle screw in type connector. The photo shows it in its original location on the side of the wheel well. When I added the ARB drawers it was moved to its current location (pictures in ARB Drawers and Fridge page).

      In the passenger side rear lights bulb access panel I installed a 12V DC standard port and a dual USB port.  The 12V DC port is used to power the awning lights discussed on the awnings page.

        I installed a 12V DC port below the front grill. It is connected via the fuse box to teh second battery. I use this to run a DC shower head I use to wash dishes, camp cleanup etc.

        RAM Mount Arm for Phone

        I installed a RAM mount arm for my phone. This is more convenient and keeps the phone mostly out of the sun. I also have a RAM mount on the dash but the phone would mostly be in the sun and get very hot in southern AZ.
