Is there no 12v socket on the side of the cocktail cabinet ?
or are you looking for a cigar lighter type socket in the habitation area, if so unless someone has fitted one then the answer is to get a 12v plug to cigar lighter socket adaptor (if thats what you need) - if that makes sense
Failing that its an easy job to fit a 12v socket on the side if the wardrobe or cocktail cabinet as there is a 12v supply within both areas you could tap into

Hi Ginner,
Are you quite sure that there is no 12volt in the back of the van, if you have a strange looking 2 flat pin socket that is it. All you need is a plug to fit which should be available from your local caravan or motorhome dealer, ask for a clipsall plug.

Hi Ginner,
By flat pin plug I assume you mean a socket to accept a flat pin Clipsall plug, this should be your 12volt supply. I am not sure what you want to connect to the fan you refer to which I assume is for your carver or truma heater. If you prefer you can fit a round cigarette lighter type socket wired directly to the back of the clipsall socket, as most 12volt appliences have this type of plug. If your clipsall socket is not live it is probably controlled by a fuse somewhere which may have blown.

Hi Ginner.

A couple of words on this.

Be wary of tapping the 12v supply in general, you can easily mistake polarity and kill the TV.

The TV that you have, is it a REGULATED 12v set, able to run from 10-15v for example?

If not, then you will need a regulated power supply to avoid damage to the set.

Instead of tapping the wiring, there is a Clipsall to cigar lighter adapter available, so basically plug in the two pin, and it leaves a 12v socket available to plug in whatever you wish to power.

Regards.

Nick.
