Different DC Cigarette Plug Receptacles?

I have a 2004 22' CCD.

I have noticed that my front DC cigarette receptacle is different from the one in the back, under the desk. The front receptacle is deep and will accept the plugs. The rear receptacle/TV booster is shallower and will not accept the same plugs.

Why the difference? Can I get one replaced to match the other? It seems that the front one is the best.

Same problem.

The ones in the TV booster seem to have a slightly smaller diameter, and are too tight for most plugs.

This problem of different sized 12V outlets was discussed several months ago - but I can't remember what the solution was. If you do a search you might turn the thread up.

My solution was to mount 12v outlets elsewhere. They cam be purchased at most any Auto Parts store. I went straight from the 12V panel in the front of the trailer, and used #10 wire. That way you can power just about anything you wish. The wires going to the booster are small. Not really very useful.

A few years back I had this exact problem. I'm not at my unit, but I believe it was the one that was had on on/off switch for the Wingard antenna.

I called Wingard, explained the problem, which they are aware of, and they sent me a replacement plug/plate thing. Still a tight fit but better. I don't use that 12v. socket for much of anything anyway.

Give Wingard(?) a call.

Solution!

I took the trailer to my local Airstream dealer and had the old DC receptacle replaced with a Winegard Wall Plate Power Supply (Model RV-7042). I works fine with the newer DC plugs.
