The National and State parks we frequent all have generator hours. We seniors often forget to recharge the batteries .

Did finish the wiring late this afternoon. Found it a challenge to get the wiring down to the back of the outdoor entertainment center radio where I had power. Wired it up and were done!

Did you have to fish it through the wall?

No, I removed the shelf and carefully placed a drilled a hole thru the pine frame and into the plastic housing for the TV. Measured to make sure I wouldn't hit the TV. I then ran the wires thru the hole down the back side of outdoor TV to the big wire /cable opening where it fed directly to the back of the radio/cd/dvd player and the power supply. I had previously pulled off the shelf above the sofa and reinstalled it with dowels instead of staples.

After camping with 3 adults and 4 grandkids and all their toys, I put in 8 USB chargers; and it still was not enough.

I just bought 2 old work boxes, 2 USB combo plugs and swapped out one outlet on the counter and one in the bedroom with the USB combo plugs. No additional wire required.

Very nice job Sage. I need to add a charging port/110 plug on each side of the bed. should not be too hard since there is power under the bed.

I may have mentioned before, ours came with 2 USB ports on each side of the bed hooked up to 12v system and regular 110v outlets. Since 90% of our trips are dry camping the 110v receptacle with USB wouldn't work for us since that combined receptacle uses 110v to power the USB charging ports.
