I don't understand, why would the equipment supplier sell a 12V DC plug if you are not to plug it in?

Excellent observation. :::sigh::: point & match...

I forgot there are some excellent quality power lugs out there as I've seen too many cheap 12-volt power points that fail if you simply look at them hard. I 'd still go with Anderson style hook-ups if it is a continuing application since a cigarrette style adaptor is meant only as an 'attended' power source, one always being supervised...

Hi Mike, we're right by Balboa Park -- we'll have to compare newbie-notes sometime (we've only had ours for < 3 months: first RV, too!)
