Crusader 26rld question

Bought our first 5w in April 2012 and love it. Sitting at home in Chicago with the Crusader an hour away in storage, I can not remember if it has a 12 volt DC outlet in the trailer. I was wondering if I can use an inverter and be able to plug in an electric blanket when we are drydocking. I have a Honda 2000 to recharge the two batteries the next day.
We will be camping at 8000' in late July in Medicine Bow Mts (Snowy Mt Pass) outside of Laramie, WY. Thanks for the input and suggestions.

If its like my Sanibel (likely), the only 12v outlet is in the Winegard TV amplifier (behind your TV), and I hear it's only rated at 8 amps, probably not enough to power an inverter.

I want to add a 12v outlet into my convenience center to power my 12v tire pump.

Should be easy enough to wire up an inverter directly off the battery to a dedicated outlet into the bed frame above it...short wire run. I haven't wired an inverter myself though I imagine it would need to be fused.
