USB Ports

We have a 2007 Safari 27FB. I would like to add USB / 110v combo plugs like you see in residential applications. Is this possible? Has anyone done it? If so, where do you find the plugs? Thank you.

Yes hey will work - just have to watch the depth of them as they are deeper than some of the standard plugs. You can pick them up almost anywhere - Lowes, Home Depot, even a lot of Walmart stores will have them. They normally are about $15-$20 per outlet. Well worth it! (Or you can do what I did and tie them into the 12v system - I have a few USB outlets right beside our bed for mine and my wife's phones. I will be adding two more soon for other USB devices.)

One very real consideration - do you really want to require 110V simply to get USB power? In some ways, a 12V -> USB might make more sense.

Airstream installed a double SB port in several places in our 2015 23D International Serenity and they got their power from nearby 12Vdc circuitry. In fact I tied into the circuit in the rear roof locker to power the rear view Voyager camera.

There are a number of plug-in models available on Amazon. Plug it into an outlet and you can charge several phones, etc. at the same time.

I installed two 110v receptacles with USB in my Classic 25fb, one on the fridge wall and one on the queen bed nightstand (which is now on the nightstand between our twins after our twin bed remodel). These are deep receptacles that won't fit on the walls. I have four 12v sockets, one on the fridge wall one under the dinette one in the audio cabinet above the dinette table and one on the bedroom wall. I replaced the 12v socket plate with one with the socket and two USB ports. I just purchase an 12v "hub" where it plugs into the socket under the dinette and from that on/off switch a cable runs to the main box which I have on the dinette table. It has 3 socket and 4 USB ports. You can always get some 12v socket plugs with USB connectors used for auto purposes too. I could add one of those on the bedroom 12v socket

The bedroom 110v with USB is handy when on shore power to charge phones overnight without having to use an adapter. If you buy one of these receptacles make sure it has at least 2.1 amp output for charing larger devices like tablets.

I also carry a 22000mah portable battery which is able to charge an iPad several times.

I used the Trond Prime Mini Smart Charging Station for our table and did a permanent install on our night stand. You can find it on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2qwRmPw

I recommend these:

They match the white decora outlets through the rest of the trailer, operate on 12V and give you a cigarette lighter outlet as well. I've replaced the USB outlets (which had already failed) that came in my 2017 with these.

Another option is these faceplates: https://www.amazon.com/SnapPower-USB.../dp/B01BX83E0U

They aren't deep because it's not a replacement outlet.

Here's another option, that just plugs into your existing outlets:

To make sure it stays put, the machine screw in the center of your existing outlet faceplate is removed, and a new longer screw is inserted into this device to screw through your old outlet.

The two smartphone trays on the side are retractable.

I bought two, one for home and one for my Airstream, but then used both at home. Now I need to get another for the Airstream…
I thought getting old would take longer!
