Adding USB to X23F

Anyone have experience adding additional 12v USB outlets to your rigs? I would love to see where you installed them especially if you have the x23F.

Not quite the same thing, but I just used the existing 12V tap near the TV with a 2 tap USB port for boondocking, and added an AC power tap with 3 more USB ports for charging when we have AC hookups.

I have add 5 to my 23B. One inside the refrigerator access panel. I use it, for my 12v air compressor. I added on at each bunk. The one at the front bunk is mounted to bring the power in from the cargo bay. The one at the rear bunk, is mounted up high in a no access area, where the power runs for the 12V light,fan plug is at. The other two, are near the stereo, I moved our stereo up, and made a shelf where the stereo was at, to charge phones, and hold other small items.

I don't have the same camper but I am using the same panel that you are showing. I swapped out the voltage meter for one with an ammeter that shows current draw from anything plugged into it. Certainly not necessay but fun and educational for the kids.

Good luck,

Jeff

Do you have a pic of your stereo area. I would love to see how that turned out.

Can you provide links for the panel and for the ammeter? Thanks!

I have a cigarette lighter plug in voltage meter with two usb ports. It even gives you the voltage that they are receiving for about 9 bucks and no wiring

If you don't want to get involved in installing sockets, making holes, etc... get a small outlet strip with USB ports, and attach it somewhere convenient.

I got one with a very short cable and attached it to the wall by my bunk with some heavy D/S tape. It includes surge protection. A Walmart special, if I recall correctly.

Sure thing Chrispitude.

Here's the main panel that I started with:

https://www.amazon.com/Cllena-Charge...YMW8R8CD9&th=1

And here's a similar replacement Volt/Ammeter (I can't find my old link):

https://www.amazon.com/WATERWICH-DC1...PGZ2EV98NRYM86

I do feel that the LED power indicator on the switch is a bit bright. I still plan on going back in and trying a resistor on the switch's lead to ground.

Good luck,

Jeff

This is a solution if you are hooked up to shore power. Dry camping is another story!

Cheers
