Newbie!
I want to wire in a new 12v supply for a television that I have moved from one side of the van to the other. (Autotrail Tracker SE 2006). According to the wiring diagram for the control unit there is a spare unused terminal.

How on earth does one get into the unit? It is a sealed metal box as far as I can feel, front and back and is fed a huge number of wires through a similarly sealed wooden box that it stand on. The unit appears to be riveted together. Any advice gratefully received.

Either take it straight from the liesure battery with its own fuse or take it from the back of the existing 12 volt socket

Give Sargents a ring in the morning they will point you in the right direction and tell you the right size wire to use.Most helpful people I've spoken to in the 18mths since we've had our 2010 Autotrail. Richard

Pin 2 on the output is marked as spare. I would take that to mean it is an unused pin and that it is not wired nor fused.
The yellow/white on pin 10 goes to your 12 volt socket or sockets and only fused at 10 amps.
As you will know there are 8 fuses and all are spoken for, there isn't a spare fuse for an unused output
