12V to garage/bedroom

I have a 2017 Adria Coral 690 on Fiat Ducato Chassis. Want to add a USB socket by the bed in the rear, over garage. Have a wardrobe each side of bed so no problem fitting sockets. Seems to be no 12v supplies at the rear of the van. Any one found one or routed a wire the full length from front to bedroom so it looks tidy, dont want wires trailing about. Thanks

welcome!
is there somewhere in the garage to draw a 12v feed rather than running from the front?

Hi. No thats the problem. Seem to be nothing other than the lights 12v. All sockets even garage ones are 240v from entry door back. Only way looks to be done is add a cable from power supply under front seat ( all power setup 240v, 12v breakers etc). Then run thea cable under van to rear enter via garage floor. Easy to do but was hoping maybe a supply I missed somewhere.

Screwfix do auto cable conduit to protect the cable as you run it along the chassis. I used it as you can pre load it with the cable, I ran a spare cable as well to future proof another additional requirement later on. Just fuse it close to the forward connection to protect the cable run.

Good luck.

That looks the best option at the moment. Have a roll of that as well left from when I did the rear air assist. Can get a 5m roll on EBay for same price if you ever need any again. Thanks

We ran ours from the electric box in the wardrobe , under the fixed beds

We always had lights in the garage but no plugs

We needed plugs for the electric bike batteries, and also to plug in the microwave and electric pan outside

Thanks Sandra. I think they are a 240v supply. I have got those sockets in the garage but after a 12v supply.

You could always replace a socket with one with a usb also at screwfix

Our 2009 Adria had cigarette type sockets in the bedroom (perhaps not original) it was also prewired for a reversing camera and the cable was coiled up in the overhead locker

But we didn't have 240 sockets in the garage.

Thanks all for the suggestions and info. Have managed to find matching fittings,sockets etc fitted to the MH. Also, after a lot of searching found a wiring schematic for the NE237 control unit. So will now be able to use the spare fuse and correctly connect to supply. Have located the correct connectors and found the spare position in the correct block, so won't be splicing any wires. Result!!
