Additional Power Point
Over the winter, I want to install another power point in my 2004 F350 CC. There are 2 now (well 1 PP and then the lighter which I use as PP socket). The one in the dash next to the radio is already loaded down with my tire monitor system, GPS and XM radio. The lighter one we occasionally run a power inverter in it and sometimes between that and the OBD port (which powers the CTS) we draw too much power which then blows a fuse causing my OBD port to go out which then turns off my CTS and I'm running "blind" until I can replace the fuse.
My thought is that I'd like to run a dedicated power point for the inverter and hopefully since it won't be having any other thing running for it, there will be enough power w/o blowing a fuse.
If I run one and direct connect it to a battery with an inline fuse, anyone see any issues with that and/or other options/thoughts? Want to do it right and not make it look like a butcher job.
