Wired up a 12V receptacle, a charging pigtail, and a circuit breaker

Good evening,

For my first wiring upgrade project, I added a weatherproof 12V receptacle for gps, phone, etc.; a charging pigtail to plug into my 1.2 amp charger; and a circuit breaker for the receptacle and future small devices.

I decided to add a common negative post so I can add future devices to it and not to the battery. The breaker makes a nice spot to add the + side of future devices.

Looks like we found the same product and installed it in the same place KRS! I have recently added a mount for my Garmin 276C and instead of buying another hardwire kit, I just added the same 12 volt kit that you have pictured. I ran it back to the Blue Sea fuse box though as I am not quite the electrical type, I need to add a fuse to the system eventually. I like your idea of using the curcuit breaker too.

Where did you find that SAE pigtail? I was looking for some a few months ago and came up empty handed.

Advance, O'reilly, and AutoZone have the SAE pigtails in the trailer wiring sections.

Nice setup on yours... Great Minds Think Alike I like the breaker too. I'm switching that outlet as soon as the eastern beaver tail light adapter kit comes.

That pigtail came with my charger
