Got a couple of 12v + 2 usb connections and one 'octopus'
(1in to 3out 12v splitter)
put the new 12v on my left side console, plug the octopus in,
and it takes care of the gps, brake buddy, and my super duper seat cooler !

If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.

GPS and TPMS sit on the PS window, there are two 110V plunges next to her chair. I don't even have a view of them. DW is truly the navigator and let's me know of any tire changes.
If the phone is being used a a hot spot it doesn't have to be on the dash, just somewhere within reach of the nagavator... I mean navigator.

The coach only has one 12v outlet on the dash.

I ended up buying a 12v strip that had 2 12v outlets and 3 USB outlets at AutoZone for the trip home, but the dash is a snake pit of cords.

How does everyone deal with the abundance of electronics that need their juice?

I've been toying with making a bracket or other mounting system to keep them organized, any pics or ideas?
I have my GPS, Sat Radio and Dash Cam hard wired into the fuse panel. The two external 12V plugs on the dash are for the Patriot and phone etc.

I have a 12v to 110v strip from Pilot Truck Stop (under $35). It has another 12v port on the other end, 4 or 5 plugs for 110v , and 2 USB ports. I use the USB ports or a house charger for phones, tablets, and computers. It is only 450 watts, but none of this stuff draws much juice anyway.

I am in the process of building a charging station in the back where the rear television used to be located. Station includes the printer/scanner, dedicated connections for laptops, iPad, phones, vacuum and power tool batteries. Top shelf will be for paper supplies and ink cartridges for printer as well as the cell phone booster and wifi. The door will be the replacement flat screen TV. Amazing how much space the old TV took up. Still with all that gear I am 20 pounds lighter. When finished no more dangling power cords to untangle.
