Aspen Trail 2810BHS 12V outlet ?

Just purchased our first TT and I can't find a 12V outlet anywhere on the aspen trail ? I discovered all the 120 outlets, but I can't find one 12V outlet anywhere.
Is there a mod somewhere to add 12V from the converter and hide it inside the cabinetry ? I'm a little hesitant about messing around the converter.

do you have a TV set up in your rig? You should have one near it, along with your antenna amplifier on the face plate of the 12V....

If they do have that, it is often the only 12V outlet in today's TTs, and many don't even have that. However, that outlet is limited by a small fuse (5 or 8 amp?) in the rear of the outlet, on the Winegard circuit board. It is made only for the low current of a modern TV, not much more. Certainly not as a utility or charging point.

Probably going to have to add your own. I am.

I use the Blue Sea ones. I have both lighter style and USB style that I am installing. It takes a bit of creativity to figure out where to put them and keep the wiring hidden. Most of the cabinets have false bottoms you can snake wires down, etc.

My 12 volt plug is going on the end of the kitchen cabinet that has the fridge in it, I can get to the wiring from the outside fridge access. Only thing is to make sure it gets sealed up well against CO. For my USB I am tapping into one of the light circuits on the other side of the trailer and making a new box in the cabinet to lay my phones in while charging.

Most of the TV plugs are only rated to 8 amps and are an odd size, I could not get my cellphone car charger to fit in it.

Mine is behind the TV. It has the little on/off button for the antenna booster integrated into it.

2011 aspen trail I forgot to mention the year. I'll have a look behind TV next time I go check her out. If not I'll be adding one.
