Electric outlet near bed in 2401R?

We're planning to buy the 2401R this spring and are now getting down to the small details. We really wish there was an outlet for charging phone, etc. right next to the bed. Any solutions other than to plug into USB outlet on the wall under the TV? Thanks!

My 2015 Solera 24R has 110 outlets on both sides of the foot of the bed. In addition, I tapped into a 12v line under the driver's side of the bed to install a motorcycle USB charger outlet that I found online.

Thanks! We'll have to look a little more closely next time we stop in to see it at a local dealer. Just looked at the new Jayco Melbourne which has a convenient outlet right alongside the passenger side of the rear bed.

Skialberts, my 2014 24S has outlets at both the head and foot of the bed. I put a little elastic pocket on the wall at the foot of the bed to hold the phone and tablet when they're charging overnight (search Amazon for a 'map pocket').

Our 2016 Sunseeker 2400R has 12v USB connections on both sides of the bed near the foot of the bed, and a regular 110v plug under the bed on the driver's side. Might even have one on the passenger's side but ours in in storage so I can't check.

The plugs are brown on both sides and are hard to see. Bring a flashlight and it will be easier.

Added USB Charging Station

This is a 4 port charging stating added to our 15 Solera 24s. Each port is modular so you can add multiple USB or 12 adapters. Mine has an on/off switch, a DC voltmeter, a dual USB chargers and a 12 volt outlet. The components are available on EBay in multiple configurations. Inexpensively added to wherever you might need.

I changed out a couple of my outlets with ones that have built in USB. Nice to have and use.
