Well that makes me feel better about just going with a third party replacement instead of a warranty replacement.

Ironically enough I ripped mine out the other day by accident. Luckily I was able to shove it back in and it works still.

When I first picked up the camper that entire USB unit was DOA (someone soldered right through the circuit board). My dealer had a new one shipped to my house and it took all of 5 mins to swap in.

I'd try that route until someone comes up with a better mousetrap.

I did it too on the weekend. Put it back in and it still works.

Mine pulled out just like Buddy Ray's.
Was able to push back in and it still worked. Added a little super glue and it seems to stay now......Wonder how long until it dies....

To answer the question above - the unit is 12v.
In the Eagle HT 26.5 there is plenty of room behind the outlet to mount something deeper. That leaves a lot of options.
One thing to watch if you have to buy/replace any USB charger jack is the amps.
MANY of the dual socket units on the market deliver 2.1a on one socket and 1.0 on the other. Guess what - that makes the 1.0 socket pretty much useless unless you still have an iPhone 4. Newer phones and pads require at least 2 amps and will charge pretty slowly at that. I haven't found a wall mounted 12v charger that I consider really "high power" yet.
I'm considering going with this one just because I know it will cover the hole in the cabinet AND I'd like to have a 12v socket here to plug in a 12v fan when we boondock.
I do not have that style charger in my HTT, actually it did not come with any USB chargers. I added a number of AUX power ports, and use good quality Belkin dual 2.1 amp car adaptor plugs. They work great. I can charge multiple items at a time, rock solid mount. Being they are connected to the 12V system I can charge up my stuff even boondocking.

The core of mine just pulled out as well. I did manage to put it back in but the bottom plug doesn't have power now so I assume it was shorted when it pulled out.
I contacted Jayco and they won't send me a replacement - got the "warranty work must be done by dealer" line).

I have the same exact one.. dead from the get go. It's on my list of things the dealer needs to replace/fix.
