Leviton USB 120V Outlets

I installed a couple of Leviton USB outlets in my Classic today.

The first photo shows the outlet next the the TV. Adjacent to the outlet is a phone holder. Purchased from Amazon

The 2nd photo is in the front bedroom on the night stand next to the front bed. I'll probably get another phone holder to replace the telephone jack.

Interesting.

Did you find changing the out less expensive than the little plugin AC adapters or just more convenient with 2 ports?

These are more expensive but the first photo both USB ports will charge an iPad and the right port in the bedroom will charge an iPad. I just need to keep a few spare cables instead of trying to remember to bring our bricks. I've got a cigarette lighter adapter too for charging phones and iPad.

I have put a few of these in at our house too. Much more convenient, cables are also easier to come by. Especially if you use the Android stuff with the micro USB.

I added 12v USB outlets so they'll work when we don't have shore power.

We converted all the trailer outlets to Hubbell GFI units. We also put power outlets in the rear and street side storage compartments as well as the water works area of the Classic. We also put a duplex in the roof locker next to the refrigerator to power the MiFi and WiFi Ranger.

We put dual USB outlets on the center night stand between the twin beds and the outlet on the face of the dinette. We also converted the television duplex outlets to a switched outlet so the parasite power of instant on is not drawing power when running on the inverter.

We are planning on installing some, beginning with one on the headboard he is building now. We have a much older Airstream so I hope they will fit.

As long as you have the space behind the face plate you should be good to go. You need space for the box and Romex cabling.

Note that there are extension rings or frames that will move a outlet face plate and the mounting tabs on the outlet perhaps Ĺ" away from the wall solving the shallow space issue.
