OK, this is really basic electrical, but since I'm new to boat electrical stuff, please bear with me.
Our 1984 Sabre 34 has no 12v outlets--none whatsoever. As a temporary solution, we have a portable outlet connected to a battery, but we need to install permanent outlets.
For now, I'm planning on interior-only near our nav station (no cockpit plug at this time).
So to my question(s): First, how are 12v outlets typically wired into the DC system--by this I mean, do they go through the DC breaker panel? If so, on what circuit would they typically go? On their own "Outlets" circuit, along with "Cabin Lights", other?
I realize this might be personal preference, but I'd like to know what typical is before I do something different--at least I have a frame of reference.
Below is my current breaker panel, so I'm open to suggestions as to how best to incorporate. Note there are two "Cabin Lights" breakers (one forward half of boat, other aft half)--I could combine those maybe and free up something new?
Anyway, please let me know what's typical with 12v outlets, if there is such a "typical" treatment.
