Forester 3051s plug for 110v

Morning - Picking up our Forester 3051s on the 19th. Getting really excited. We travel now with a Jotto desk and small laptop with mapping software. I've looked everywhere but cannot find if there is a 110v plug in the cab area. If not where is the closest plug? Would appreciate anyone looking to see and if so where?

If no plug close by has anyone used one of these adapters to add a 110 v?

Thanks.

There isn’t any 110ac in the front. The closest outlet is under the aft dinette bench or on the wall off the galley area facing the main entry door. I use a 200 watt inverter mounted in the overhead “tech” cabinet immediately behind the forward passenger seat.

Consider the fact that the pax area of the cab on these E-series trucks is very small. I don’t think you’ll have enough room for a Jotto type desk.

I wouldn’t use the the inverter you mentioned because it’s not a pure sine wave version. Fluctuating sine wave output COULD damage your computer or other electronic systems. Take a look at this one:

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Did they remove the one in the overhead bunk area? Our 2014 has a 12v outlet in driver corner and toward ceiling is a double 110 outlet. Was hard to find since the television bracket blocked seeing it.

Forgot about that one, but on the 2018 itís buried inside one of the two covered compartments on the right side of the cabover. Very hard to access. The television up there is 12 volt powered.

Yeah, that all said I normally use the one in the dinette area near the floor for my laptop and just work at the dinette itself.

We removed our jack knife and replaced with two euro swivel chairs so if I want to kick back and work there I would use the one on the bottom of the cabinets just behind the passenger seat.

Really good forum here. In a much younger life I moderated technical support forums for Autodesk on line so used to forum "life'. This one is excellent.

We got into a E-450 MiniWinnie at a local dealer today and sat in the seats. No Jotto desk so will have to get used to the built in navigation or use my Ipad. I could see the area where an optional 110v plug would have gone. We'll wait on any extra plugs until we see what and where we will use.

For navigation we use a Garmin 770 RV and phone with Waze app. Works well and donít need any 110.

If you use the iPad it’s easy to run USB power to it if you mount it via suction cup over the rear view mirror (which you won’t be using).
