Adding interior 12v electrical connections

I would like to add a propane detector, CO detector and a 12v outlet to my 71 Tradewind. An easy place and good location for me to mount them is the front of the galley sink cabinet. I can splice into the existing 12v line that goes to the furnace. The 12v outlet would be used occassionally for low draw appliances such as cell phone, dvd player or small flat screen tv. Anybody see any problems with this idea or have any better ideas?

I'd do a temporary hookup and give it a try with the loads you expect to use. I had a heater that was pickey about voltage level and wouldn't run properly if the voltage dropped. Any extra load on that circuit would prohibit the gas valve from opening so it would misfire. My current one seems to be much more forgiving.
