External 12v Outlet

Good for lotsa' things, such as working outside in good weather (and 'Streamers only go where there's good weather, right?) with laptop while charging laptop batts. ... or running 12v. compressor for airing tires.

I like the idea, and am getting ready to do some major electrical mods ... may just add this to the list!

A compressor that runs off a 12 v. receptacle probably won't pump an Airstream tire very fast if at all. The size of the wire is too small and may blow the fuse. A compressor to fill a 65 psi tire efficiently has to be attached directly to the batteries.
