    Multiple 12-volt devices in the truck?

    We have three 12 volt devices that we'll be using in the truck while we're pulling our travel trailer. We have one lighter socket. I'll want to make them not permanently wired. Any advice on how to do that?

    The one I use in the truck is no longer available on Amazon, but it's almost identical to this:

    Do any of the devices have a USB plug you can use? My TPMS has a 12V power plug but is really 5V USB.

    In our case, the TPMS is USB, so it gets plugged into the USB port on the 12VDC center I linked above. The rear view camera is not USB. The charge connector for our RV GPS is built into the mount and the traffic module is on the power cable, so it has to plug into the outlet with the OEM cable.
