    Fitted a couple of USB sockets this afternoon the first in back panel of shelf above passenger glovebox. For ease of installation I wired it to the vehicle battery obviously independently fused and fitted an on/off switch to reduce any current drain when not in use. Will monitor the battery when socket is in use and if necessary rewire to leisure batteries though I do not envisage any problems, current draw should be very small when in use.

    I fitted a similar USB socket in the psu locker fed from leisure batteries but find we occasionally need an extra one. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I removed the ciggy lighter socket and fitted another double USB socket to save using these wobbly plug in adapters. Obviously this one is only live when ignition on.

    Neither of these installs was a difficult job.
