Broken USB charger

OK so I walk in the camper, step on the core left in the USB charger near the kitchen sink. Of course the cord rips the dual USB ports out of their socket. I tried to repair it but no luck. The label on the back of it says: american technology components AV1-5-U I've already looked online but can't find it at all! Anyone have an idea where to find a replacement, besides trying to go through Jayco or a dealer? I can't even find a different manufacture model that might be usable, even if I make a bigger hole for one.


Thanks,
Dave...

Same thing happened to me, pulled out when I unplugged my usb cable. I'm guessing to two port usb piece is soldered in so no chance of fixing it on your own. I'm under warranty but was going to do it myself to save some time. Couldn't find it online so ended up sending a photo to my out of state dealer and had a replacement in about 2 weeks. Boxed the broken one up and sent it back to them.

This probably won't fit as a replacement for yours, but I have used them for years in rv's, boats and vehicles.

Good luck

Don, looks like it could but is my factory one now 12V DC? I haven't checked but I thought it was 110V AC?

Dave...
You should be able to check voltage at the back of the broken one.

I install these on either side of the bed and run wire directly to the battery so they can be used anytime.

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).
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'll be on my second replacement soon, the 1st one they sent me managed to do the same thing. Seems this item should be recalled as I can only imagine my 3rd one will do it also.

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.

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....

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.

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

Are these USB ports still awful? I was going to add more to the camper, but not if they don't hold up. Thanks in advance.
