I have an '06 and the left glove box is the best place as there is a hot plug behind that pocket to plug the 12 volt receptacle in.
I am running a second one for my Sat/MP3 radio over to the right glovebox since it is locked. I needed a cig adapter and RS had one for $7 to accomodate my needs. Took power and neutral from the battery via a aux. power panel that is switched.
Ed, who is Lewis ? and where can I get the info on the parts you have mentioned?sammisgrammy said:lenny........Lewis has a plug and play outlet that worked great on the 05. While you have it apart consider his led light setup. Both are very convenient
I bought a outlet /lighter with a along power cord & a rubber cover ..Mounted it in the trunk it is hot all the time..Used a 15 amp fuse so I can run my compresser....chuckicing777 said:Oldguy,
where the one in the back plugs in? Is there a "plug and play"
connector like behind the left pocket?
Yes. there's a 12VDC plug in there. probably got a black wire and a green wire with black stripe if memory serves. From Electrical connection you can get these connectors(that fit the bike connector) and clip off the Cigarrette lighter portion of the plug from the Radar detector(i'm assuming that's what it is) and place a connector on it that plugs into the bike connector. Much more compact and dirt free. Also you can get several connectors and make a pigtail(chain) from the original 12V output for hooking up more devices later....mp3, satellite, phone charger, etc.I need to plug in a radar detector. Is the left pocket the best place?
I am like Dale in needing help as I want to install some outlets where I can plug in things like heated gloves, GPS, etc. I don't mind admitting that you are talking over my head, just mind that I don't have experience or expertise at doing this kind of stuff. A number of things that are mentioned by you good help people are foreign to me.dnifong said:Ok,
I hate to admit it but you guys are talking a little over my head.

What's the basics with the install?
The rear plug does sound like a good idea :?
