Does anyone know a source for Escape's 12v USB outlet? I can not find anything similar on line.

Hi Gae,
Would love to hear any suggestions on where to find 12V and USB appliances. That's pretty much all I will be using. Thanks!!!

Jim, are you referring to this kind of outlet, the ones with the blue leds? They were about $8, online, free shipping from China.

Online or truck stops. Online places like RoadTrucker Logbooks, Travel Gifts, Truck Locks, Accessories. Maybe boating supply places too.

Not the wall because I'd have had to put bolts through the wall to the exterior, which I didn't want to do or I'd had to cut the vinyl and epoxy a block of wood onto the f.g. Been there, done that with the overhead light.

Didn't want to attach it to the table. It has wires attached to it and I wanted the table to still be able to move independently.

So I made an "L" shaped bracket that attaches to the non moving part of the table. It's worked out well, plenty strong enough.
