Aux power

Ok.... so Iím thinking about how to power all the %*#•^ I now have at the front of my coach. Typical day will be 2 iPhones, the TST TPMS monitor, and the RVIbrake tablet. I think itís all USB, so I could figure I could use a 4 port cig adapter like below. Thoughts? Any better ideas?

That would work ok only if the motor is running. A better way is to pickup a 4 bank USB 120v plug in while you're on shore power. Amazon has a bunch of them available.
This would be ideal-- BESTTEN

That receptacle is continuously powered; just like in your car.

Iím looking to power things while we are driving (TPMS screen, Toad Brake screen, keep iPhones charged) as such, shore power wouldnít be available.

My tow vehicle is a Ford F350 and the power outlets remain hot when the truck was off. I did not want my GPS, TPMS and phones to remain powered when we stopped to eat and such. So I wired a new power outlet with two USB,s so that it will not be powered when I turn off the truck. In my case I wired them to the up fitter switches that were available in my truck.

I like the idea of them turning off when the engine is off. Anyone done something like this in a Georgetown or similar?

This is my solution - has worked well for the last year plus. Advantage is the voltage is displayed right on the plug and you can control power to the unit with the push button on the plug itself.

Like I said, it should work ok as long as the motor is running. Disregard everything else I said! Your initial post was clear as mud. I like the Feeyoo Tom39 suggested. Think I'd take the white one. 5 ports might come in handy as well!!
