Add 12v Outlets?

We have a 2013 26rls and my wife and I were recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. We dry camp once or twice a year and are looking for options for our two cpap machines.

Has anyone added one or two 12v outlets in the bedroom?

I added a bunch to my HTT. I ran a new circuit from the fuse panel. I spent some time figuring out where best to run the wires.

I have also added several 12v USB outlets to our rig. Easy enough to do, hardest part was figuring out how to run the wires.

USB outlets can be tapped off of other circuits, they require very little power. If you are installing the plug type 12v outlets, I would definitely consider running them as a new circuit with it's own protection.

I would definitely run dedicated 12V outlets, and I would increase/improve battery banks.

I use this when car/tent camping, and it'll run my CPAP and charge my phone for 2 nights on a single charge if I turn off humidification:

I put in a dedicated line to USB outlet devices I added and put a small fuse near the battery. The USB outlet has a power source and switch built in and work great to run a USB fan we picked up as well as phones charged.
