Do they make 12 volt Outlets you can install for Accessories?

I installed one like this one, however mine has 2 USB outlets in addition to the 2 cigarette plugs.

We do a fair amount of dry camping, but even when we have power available it's nice to be able to plug in 12 volt accessories.

I used these installed them through out the trailer. The control boxes usually have a few extra slots to use.

Yes, did that too. Just last weekend, found a 15" RCA LED, LCD TV with HD etc,etc, to replace the 15" LCD that I had in the trailer. Why you may ask, well, we only dry camp and the new RCA requires only 2 amps of power versus the 4 amps of the old unit, plus it has a much better quality picture. On a side note, I did see the RCA in 19" and 22" with built in DVD players and 12 volt input (still) with 4 amp power requirement. Since having the trailer, I always keep an eye open for TV's with a 12 volt input (drives my wife crazy), and I have to say RCA has the largest selection I have seen so far. By the way, the new TV was $99.00 at London Drugs here in Vancouver.

Quite a few Flat panel TV's use dc power. look at the power set up if the TV uses a separate power box then you can bypass that and go straight to DC from your RV (USING THE PROPER VOLTAGE).

Vizio (spelling?) is on of them ( I have a 22") that uses an external power transformer and converts 110AC to 12VDC so you just take the transformer out and go to radio shack and get a 12V cig. jack that can handle the Amps with the right tip.

I have a 27HFS TT not a 5th wheel. I mounted a 32" LED in the main area. I also left on the main base when measuring the height of the mount . I did this so I would not have to remove the tv while trailering.3k miles and still hanging straight. I do use 2 pillows to protect it in between the TV and the slideout.

I've got a 27HFS TT also - would love to see a photo of your installation.
