The 12 volt power from the TV is not currently connected to anything. I'm not sure how power to that wire is regulated if at all. Solar power goes thru a Victrom solar charge controller.

Apparently my Focus RS would be a great tow vehicle. All wheel drive, 350 HP, handles and brakes better any SUV out there.
