Fulton 7-Way to 4-Way or 5-Way Trailer Wiring Adapter With 12V Power Outlet - Overton's

For those of you blowing fuses on the 12v outlets anyone try one of these? Plug it into the 7 pin trailer plug and utilize I believe 20 or 30 amp 12v circuit for charging the camper while in tow?

We use these for filleting fish on the tailgate!

I can use the 12v outlet in the basement of my 5er. Can you add one to yours somewhere. Plenty of 12v wires running everywhere, just be careful which one you tap into.

Run a new line and add a higher fuse. If you tap into a wire that is present, you will be popping the fuse in a very short time (do not put a higher fuse in it). The gauge of wire also, will not stand the long run from the power source, you will have a power drop that will not most likely run what you plug into it. You are begging for problems. Run a higher gauge line and bigger fuse.

I already had several Ryobi batteries for a tool kit I own..so I bought this cordless air compressor (battery not included). it works great and has no problem topping my 50 psi tires off.

Ryobi 18-Volt One Plus Cordless Green Inflator-P731 at The Home Depot

I like the fact that you can set a pressure and the unit turns itself off when reached. I attach it to one tire as I am preparing everything else for the trip. When I hear it click off I go hook it to the next tire and go back to packing...so on, so on.

No power cords, no fuss.

It also works good airing up beach inflatables.

That's good to know. I'll need to look into this option.

I use the same thing not for an inflator but for a 12 volt impact gun I carry. it works good when having to change a flat on the side of the road. I haven't had to do this with my camper yet, but have used it many times when pulling a tire trailer and had flats/blowouts.

I have this 12v compressor, no problems up to 115psi. Quiet with coiled hoses to reach to the 5er tires. Highly recommend it.
