Adding Outlets

In the living area, changed a double 110 outlet to a single + 2 USB charging ports (shore power). In the garage, added a 3in1 meter (time, temp, & DC volts) plus unit that has two 12v DC outlets (camper came with none) and two USB charging outlets (from battery). Also changed all interior bulbs to LED.

I like it. I've been looking for a standard 110v single outlet that also has a 12v outlet in the same housing, but with separate power feeds.

Did you take power from the feed to the 12v switch for the USB 12v lighter outlets?

Yes, I tapped into the 15a hot line going into the (far right) light switch that doesn't seem to do anything. The 12v outlet housing also has a 15a fuse in the back of it.

I wanted to be able to charge my phone whether on DC or AC. That's why I put in both types of outlets.

They aren't separate power feeds, only 110 going to the unit. The USB ports are converted to DC and auto detect how much the charging device needs.

Thanks, it a great idea, I am going to do the same thing. You validated what I was thinking of doing with the light switch above our bed. I need 12 volt outlet to run a converter for my cpap machine witch draws hardly anything. Thanks for the feedback
