OK, I give up

I finally located all eight 120 Volt outlets on my 2011 Classic 30. I still have only found one DC 12 Volt cigarette outlet. Is it possible there is only one? Help...

There's only one in my trailer, and it's beside the Sony radio. I know the new trailers have USB ports in the bedroom, but that's no cigarette outlet. The USB port IS a 12v connection, but I don't recall ever seeing an aftermarket cable that would take it from a USB and convert it to a 12v plug-in. Heck...where's a Radio Shack when ya need one?
There probably is one out there made by someone, somewhere.

There was just a thread here in the last month or so about those USB ports. Some do provide a power connection, IIRC. I have vintage, not new, so maybe I'm not remembering it correctly. Poke around and you may find it.

Carver, love yer avatar. Can you do a John Wayne for me?

USB ports are 5 volts, not 12. They may be connected to a 12 volt DC source, or come from 120 volt AC source. I don't know how AS built their units. Don't assume that 12 volts is behind the USB outlet.

Idroba,
I stand corrected. They are indeed 5 volts. My bad.
But that still doesn't answer his question!

I suspect Airstream has cut back on outlets, thinking people bring chargers along specific to their devices, and fewer people use 12V appliances anymore.. Auto parts places (or Amazon..) offer 12V socket "multipliers" that convert a single outlet into two or 3 if you need to plug in more gadgets.. <And our trailer has a 12V socket in the bathroom in addition to socket located near the TV plug..>

Jim,

Sorry, after spending 30 proud yrs. in the service of our country I don't do posers like Marion. Now Audie or Jimmy would be a different story.

My 2013 Classic has (2) 12 volt cigarette lighter power ports.
One is in the left locker above the couch near the Sony stereo/Samsung Blu-Ray player.
The other is along with the TV signal strength amplifier in the credenza.

There are two 12v outlets in my 2007 Classic. One in the front credenza in the TV antenna booster. The other one is on the bedroom/shower wall in the antenna cable plate. ....presumably for a 12v TV.

Our 1999 34' has 2(two) of the "cig lighter" 12vdc outlets. Each is near the TV antenna connections.

I have a portable "battery" which can charge a couple items depending on power needs. It can fit in a pocket so is portable. Charges from USB as well. Also I have a 120vac power supply which can charge when available.

Does the 2015 Classic have one or more 12V outlets? I didn't notice any in a new Classic I walked through at the Florida State rally. We have a 12V portable Fantastic fan (Endless Breeze) that we use when it's not quite warm enough for the A/C. I would hate to give that up if we moved-up to the new Classic.

Nelson's 2015 Classic has 8 USB ports, but his parents' 2015 Classic only has 4 USB ports-
