So if I replace it with a standard wall outlet I should be ok to run both vacuum and a DC power inserter?
Replacing the goofy RV type duplex outlet with a standard one can sometimes be problematic as the wire is pressed into a channel. If I remember correctly, you will need to make sure when you cut the wires (after you pop them out of the snapped closed assembly) that it is near the perforations).
Also make sure you have enough "extra" wire to cut back and strip the ends. Some are wired pretty tight. How about an outlet expander?

This one is cool cause each appliance can be controlled with a remote.
