    DC outlet inside of a 303

    I have not found one yet. Do the new 303s have a DC power outlet inside? If not, any ideas on putting one within the living area? It looks like a line from the batteries could be fished through the basement to the base of the hutch.

    Hi KeithS,

    We also have zero DC power "cigarette lighter" outlets on our 2015 303.
    I was thinking of installing a couple, but am trying to wean myself off these archaic connections.
    Since we almost always camp with shore power, we haven't really missed not having these.

    If I were to install these, it would be relatively easy to come off the main panel to one under the hutch cabinets beside the light switches, or off the power to the audio system to the cabinet on either side. Remember that you are going to have to fuse these at less than the original circuit that you take the feed from.

    No 12V DC outlet in the Reflection. You can wire a outlet into the living area by taking power from the power center. It should also be fused.

    Thanks. We have a Whynter portable fridge/freezer that runs on both AC or DC. When on longer trips, I'd like to have it running, and positioned behind the island until arriving at the destination. On another RV, I had an extra storage battery which I set by the unit inside the trailer. If we dry camp, we need to tap into DC with an inverter to run a cpap. Using the extra battery is a chore.

    I stuck a dc power outlet in the hutch via a run up the cabinet from the breaker box below. A outlet in the side of the bed dropped down into front compartment to battery.

    Check the CPAP label carefully, some of them (like REMstar from Respironics) use 12VDC and can be powered directly from a battery.
