External 12v socket

Does anyone happen to know the description of the 12v plug in this picture please. A friend has a similar socket fitted to the outside of his Swift Bolero and we are trying to track down a plug that we can use on a submersible pump. I've trawled ebay looking for external 12v sockets but can't find anything like it.
Thanks,
Phil

Have a look at websites who sell electrical and water accessories specifically for canal boats - I have seen something like it on a canal boat.

When confronted by a problem, you can solve it easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger have handled this?"

YES - that's the one I was referring to - and it's a marine fitting too.

that is a marine 12v plug and socket. I have one on my boat. They come in 2 pin and 3 pin variants. The links spykal posted are the right product.

The marine ones normally have a screw thread so they can be water tight, but in the photo its looks like there's no screw thread.

Cheers All.

I hadn't considered looking at marine applications so after your comments started googling a bit and phoning around. I ended up finding this. which is the proper thing for the job (albeit a bit pricey). I might get my friend to consider buying the full kit at around £40 which includes the pump, pipe, cable and plug. Whale Superfil 80

Thanks again!

BLIMEY! That last one is a rip off! When I wanted to do the same for our van (now sold), I bought the Whale pump with wire tails (£10.50 on EBay), and a watertight electrical plug and socket of a different design but still meant for canal boats (£12 on EBay) and made off the wire tails into the plug. Not sure why the full kit is so expensive?

Pump

I bought one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3109700046...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT and fitted a 12 volt socket in the nearest locker, but you could still use the waterproof 2 pin socket, this cheap pump empties a 35 ltr water carrier into my on board tank in less than 2 minutes which is faster than most of the taps on the sites.

Hi philoaks & deefordog,
THIS was posted in January. I think you will find that it includes a link I posted for the correct socket.

It is a 'superfill 80 socket'.

Hope this helps.

Roger
