Jensen 12V TV power supply plug

This is what the inside of the 12v 'cigarette lighter' plug looks like. Mine melted due to a bad fuse connection so I cracked it open. The plug always worked itself out of the socket anyway so I will be hard-wiring it. With a fuse. I didn't know if there was any kind of regulating circuitry in it but the only components inside are the indicator LED and a resistor (underneath) for it.

My 12 v plug also melted, is it a flaw ? Got a response from Jensen and they are sending me a new one . Hope that was the problem bad manufacturing .I would hate to see my RV up in smoke.

I just got done replacing my 4th cord. I'm taking someone else's idea and getting the Jensen power converter. No more melted power cords for me.

My solution was to cut off the melted cigarette plug and hard-wire the power cable directly to the back of power socket/antenna amp unit (it was the most conveniently located 12v power source). I stuck an old in-line fuse holder back there too just in case. I haven't fried the Jensen TV after 7 days/nights of camping...yet.
