12v plug on FE 246RKS

I can't seem to find a 12v plug in my 2014 Freedom Express 246RKS. Does anyone know if it has one and if so, where it might be located?


Thank you,
Laura

I guess you mean 12v socket or cigarette lighter socket, if so it seems alot of these dont have them now and instead have 12v usb sockets. I just installed an arb fridge/freezer socket and a reg 12v socket next to my converter.

My previous Rockwood did not have a 12v socket so I added one.
I was pulling out my piece of junk Concertone dvd/radio to replace it so I added
a socket and tied it to the power feeding the Concertone.
I subsequently used the socket to power a little plug in inverter and we watched many
a movie on TV when we were boondocking.

My current trailer came with a 12v socket in the winegard TV outlet.
Be sure and check your TV antenna outlet as it -might- have a 12v socket.
Winegard makes them both with and without.

Thanks iamkathie. The plate under the cabinet above the dinette on mine just has the cable hookup. Its not tragic that it doesn't have the plug because I usually camp with full hookups so don't really need it.

I installed one on the top bunk. Odd spot you may think. But I wanted to plug in a small inverter to power/charge my wireless camera which is aimed out the back window. I just tapped into the water pump power below the bottom bunk.

Only place on my 272bhs was by the TV in the living space, and is not accessible at all!
