My extreme thanks for all those who keep this forum rolling.
I have a 72 Overland. I installed a new fridge yesterday. It needs 12 volt
to run the control. I have looked at all possible places to swipe from. Including the battery itself and the fuse panel of course.
In my pursuit I have extracted numerous ill-installed and unsafe power supplies that lead to an automotive stereo and antique cb. Which I was going to swipe from since they were directly above the refer cab, but alas I couldn't subject the family to one more fire hazard.
My two top options now are:
1. Buy a compact 12v
battery and put it in the access area just for the fridge. The only downside I see is needing to remove it when it needs a charge or disconnecting it when storing. Also, since it would run a tiny circulation fan too, it might need charged during a longer trip.
2. Run wire all the way from the fuse panel. Letting the wire run on top of the sub floor and under the flooring I eventually install.
3. Swiping from the antenna jack forward of the cab, and letting the wire be visible.
4. Or is there secret tunnel to fish from? I tried to go atop the water tank with a fish tape and couldn't find a rout.
