2015 X23B 12v wiring question

So we brought our "new to us" 2015 X23B home yesterday and I've already put together my list of mods.

One of my first mods is to install some high rate USB charging plugs into the little nooks that bookend the sofa. I just need to tap into the 12v wiring for that. This is on the slide which will complicate things a tad, but not too much. I know there is 12v available at he slide as there is a motor for the slide, but that is switched. Does anyone know if Jayco used the street side for the 12v run from the battery? It might save me a little poking around under the couch.

I should have added a link to the USB ports I am going with.

The caps actually would help to cover up the LED if it is annoying, otherwise, I will be removing the caps.

I ran a new circuit from the fuse panel, all the way up front. I added two lights in the storage hold 2 lights above the dinnette, under the OHC, and I added two 12V aux sockets for USB chargers. I also added a 12V power socket, in the refrigerator access panel for my 12v compressor. I also added a 12v aux socket for the rear bunk. And two more at the radio area, when I moved the radio up..

It was a bit of work to snake a wire fish around the tube, but after that, it was fairly easly. And now I have lots of power.

As luck would have it, there is a line already run above the slide base, below the sofa and into the rear wall of the slide for the light above the sofa.

I'll do a little research and testing, but I can't imagine I can sneak another 1.75A out of that circuit.

I'm going with the charging station approach.

Popped out the panel above the stereo, added some extra framing and moved the radio to the top section.

I've built a boxed in shelf for the lower portion where the radio went, it's in my basement right now waiting on the first coat of stain to dry.
