Different size 12v socket

Hi everyone...

Recently purchased a new 12v telly and, in the compartment for it on my hymer, saw a normal 3-pin socket and a round 12v socket.

Assuming the round socket was for a cigarette lighter type connection, I ordered a 12v Amperor stabiliser from snellyvision (thanks guys, came this morning) only to find that the socket isn't a cigarette lighter size socket at all, but even smaller...

Any ideas what my next move might be???

Hi Bob.You can buy an adapter so it will fit your smaller socket.It has a cigarette lighter sized socket on one end, and a narrow plug on the other,with approx 4" of cable inbetween.You will find them at auto electricians,truck stops and motorhome accessories stockists.You could also try Road Pro at Daventry.
