wolf pup 12 volt tv

put a 19" tv in my 2019 16fq. I want to hook to 12 volt with a cigarette lighter plug in. where do i get the power from? if i run wires through overhead cabinet down to radio, will i find place to tap into? do i mount plug in below cupboard or in front of cupboard? this topic was on here a while back and i can not locate it.

There should be one or two spare, unused fuse locations in your power distribution panel. That's really where you want to tap in for something as high draw (for a 12V system) as a TV. The cigarette style outlets can be found pretty cheaply on Amazon.

I have a 12vdc receptacle in the ceiling right above the back of the dinette in my 16qb.

I am interested in your solution. My sister asked me to install a tv/dvd in her wolf pup 15SW and there is no cigarette lighter connection for 12V. I was thinking maybe just a standard TV and and using an inverter for dry camping. Would still need to tap into 12V to power the inverter though.
