Interior power question

I have a used Adventurer and there are outlets near the passenger seat. I thought I could charge my cell phone or run a laptop there. What do I need to do to get power to that outlet while running down the road?

Barb, you either have to run the generator or inverter (if you have a whole coach inverter - per our prior chats I think I remember you only have an inverter for the entertainment system).

You'd be better off with a 12V charge to the cell phone.

Pusher, how do I know if my inverter is just for the entertainment system?

So just plug the cell into the cigarette lighter? I have that taken up by GPS. What about laptop?

If you don't have any paperwork that tells you which outlets are run by the inverter, you'll have to turn on the inverter and go from plug to plug to see which ones work.

Re charging the cell phone, should have plenty of 12v outlets (like for a cigarette lighter).
