Woa.... thanks for the multitude of answers....

I guess i am just at the same point i was... lol.

I have the Cat CJ3000. It as a 12 V DC 5 Amp accesory outlet (Cig. Lighter connection) and that is what i intended to use to connect to the Zamp Plug.

Yes, it's true, we use the heater a lot and the pump may run during the same time, but the fridge is not 12V, it runs on gas or 110V only.

I wonder tho how many amps will be drawn from the booster pack, wouldn't it be just half since it's in paralele with the main battery?

I might just make a wire myself going to the battery because my issue is the propane line that runs just over the battery up to the tank, everytime i remove the battery cover i have to move the line out of the way and the first year i got a leak on it because i was removing the battery cover on every trip.

Anyways, i will wait for more feedback with that extra info i just provided before doing anything.

Thanks all.

Another option is to wire up a simple PVC electrical box with some 12V battery jumper posts connected to your RV battery. Then just hook up the jump pack to that. Use some 8 ga wire and run it inside a plastic wire loom. Any 4" grey box from Home Depot would work.

Maybe something like these:

I thought about that originaly, but then my wife wanted a bike rack and since you can't have anything but the spare tire on the rear bumper, the extra battery space had to give for the front side bike rack.

I might do just that, but from the inside of the RV, then i don't have to leave the booster pack outside under the RV.

Do the wires from the battery go directly to the electrical box or something like that? All i need is extra wires that go to the same place.

I wonder if there is a wiring diagram for the Clipper 17BH?
