source for 12volt cigar lighter connector?

Does anyone know who might make a 12 volt "cigar lighter" type connector to replace the one under the dinette table on the 27 FB's? This is the one that installs in the aluminum inner lining, down next to the coax sat jumpers near the floor in the very rear of the trailer.

Photos, there are lots of them out there so lots of options. Vintagetrailersupu.com has some as well. Blue sea systems makes some nice ones.
Watch the depth, usually the issue when replacing. They tend to go deeper than 1-1/2".

I put one in my upper dinette cabinet. 12v receptacle with 2 USB ports. Purchased from Amazon. I would think it would fit in the shell wall but remove the old one and measure just in case.

yes, that's been the problem. I've been to four auto parts stores, and even bought one replacement thinking they all must be universal. Not so. This one is shorter than the ones in cars.

The ones in the Airstream are not all interchangeable, either. The ones in the non-aluminum installations are longer than the one short one I need. A pity they didn't just make them all the same and interchangeable. That would have made a lot more sense than stocking two different styles.

I bought one of the threaded plastic ones from the internet ( I don't use Amazon any more) but it too is too long. The lugs on the back contact the aluminum outer shell of the trailer, and are not amenable to being bent to 90 deg. angles.

I put a screw in it from the inside and it's making connection again. The issue seems to be a missing part from the center of the bulkhead connector side.

Yes, that is why I replaced the USB with 12V plug in the bedroom. Make sure that you fabricate new wires and connect to the main 12 volt wires and do not use the tiny wires connected to the USB. The wires are accessible underneath the night stand next to the bed. Use crimp connectors not twist on. The wire is braided not solid.
