Hi Guys
I bet you lot thought i was gone well sorry but so such luck. I know I know
we already had this debate but well this is a little different.
I may be getting around to fitting a three way Din socket to the panel
where the handbrake is and maybe one in the boot aswell.
My question or questions are do I need to connect these three socket Dins
directly up to the battery, (direct wire from the Dins to the battery) or
can I branch into some wiring some where or is that gambling too much when
I really dont know what im doing.
Could the rear Dins be connected to some wiring in the rear wheel wells,
just a thought even if its a bad one.
Also does any one know of a place that will supply a direct hook up heater
in the Uk or closer to me like Ireland.
It seems all i can get is the ones in the US and the shipping is too much.

John,
there's a small box in the engine compartment labeled "power output" or
something like that, that looks like a small fuse box. It's there just
for wiring some aftermarket accessories like what you're willing to do.
I think there are 3 lines in it, each with a fuse : one is a permanent
+12V, one only works when the ign. key is on "ACC" or "ON", and one only
works when the key is on "ON". I would definately go from there, and add
an additionnal fuse sized afterwards from your sockets' maximum rating.
Run 2 wires, + from this box and ground from the battery. I wouldn't try
to connect to the existing harness, it would be a wiring nightmare. If
you take your time and remove the plastic trims and/or carpets you will
be able to do aclean, invisible job. Use at least 6mm? cables if you're
planning on powering a fridge. Make sure the fuse in the power output
box has a big enough amperage rating. If not, go hook your (properly
fused) line directly to the battery. Do not "upgrade" the fuse in the
power output box, you would be taking the risk of burning the whole
truck down. (this holds true for any fuse in your system.)
good luck ! when in doubt, ask for advice (I'm sure you will ;o)
bye,
denis
