Let's see who has some good ideas out there
You wouldnt happen to have a write up on how you did yours do you? Maybe a couple pics? Been thinking of doing this myself.I added a 12 volt power outlet to my interior so I could plug in a GPS or an MP3 player or whatever. It cost me under 10 bucks for the outlet, fuse holder, terminals, etc.
Huh?is there advantages to DIY over buying an inverter?
I hadn't really thought about doing that. I suppose I could. The install was pretty simple though. There were some available circuits in my fuse block that weren't being used, so I picked one and ran 14 gauge wire into the cabin and a line back for the return. You could probably ground to body, but I prefer to ground back to battery/asd when possible. I had to drill a hole in the firewall, and used a rubber grommet to keep the wires safe. The wires are also protected by some convolute in the engine bay from firewall to fuse block. There is a 7 or 10 amp fuse on the power wire. Fuse needed will depend on how much power you need and wire gauge. I already had the terminals and wire on hand, the outlet itself cost me about 6 bucks I think. I mounted the outlet under the radio.You wouldnt happen to have a write up on how you did yours do you? Maybe a couple pics? Been thinking of doing this myself.
