griz,

I took up the bench in the dinette and can splice into a wire feeding the LP gas detector and mount the recep beside the inverter. Bought one with inline fuse so if it blows I'll have to access that space to replace it. I've found that most auto parts stores and radio shack only sell under dash mount types not flush mount, so will go online to find one and maybe get overload protected type too.

Haven't had time to look behind the TV jacks yet, that would be the best location.

Last time i tried to charge the phone in my Tundra it was dead unless the key was on.

That's possible with the Tundra.

I used the "Prime Products 12 volt outlet, part number:08-5015".I got this from my local RV dealer. You can see this outlet at this web site. 12 Volt Cords & Outlets - Prime Products - Providing the RV community with a wide variety of
You would have to wire in a fuse and holder. I googled-"prime products rv" and got various places to purchase the outlet.
Hope this helps.

If you have a stereo, check to see if there is a USB port on it. This should be able to charge a cell phone using the right plug.

You can always go the 12v route which would work for dry camping. I do not dry camp often enough, so I actually replaced an outlet in my sanibel with This outlet.

Success! the USB plug on the radio will charge the phone on battery. The radio started playing but I guess that is ok.
Thanks

I installed one in the cabinet next to the stereo in my trailer. Easy access from there. I also plan to add one behind the TV mount so that I can hook up an inverter and plug in the TV while boondocking.

And holy crap. Thanks for pointing out the fact that the genesis radio has a USB port on it and should be good for charging. Not sure why I didn't think of that before.

On most GM's the power goes off after about 5 or 10 minutes to the accessories. At least it does on TOWTA's 96 Cad and my 05 Silverado.
