hmmm...maybe sidestep the cigarette plug and install some of those Hella plug/sockets instead. They look the go to me.

We do have some older design plugs and sockets on Raven but they are less than wonderful so will junk them as well.

Have to leave on cig lighter socket for the phones I guess.

TDW-

You could make a pigtail, so that all the outlets are standard, and for anything that guests bring along you could use a pigtail adapter.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'll have to see if I'm smart enough to take a photo of my socket - it's not like the one Camaraderie posted. The two connectors are slightly off-center from the plug - kind of like the eyes on a 'smily face'.

PS - I KNOW I'll regret that illustration, but it's the best I could do this Morning.

Wombat, the biggest problem with the cigarette lighter plugs is that the design is so open to interpretation, that there are a lot of poorly made cheap parts on the market. The cheap stuff works miserably, the good stuff works quite reliably. It can take a while to learn to spot the differences: Better plating, heavier wires, dual spring clips not just one, spring loaded tip, price higher than a buck apiece.

They're easily replaced and wired up though, so if you find a good source, pick up a couple of extras and replace any junk you've got. In the US, for better or worse, they're the 12v standard connection.
