110 outlet in center console needs to be recalled

Well, at least in my truck. Every time we plug something into the outlet, the plug falls out! It seems like the outlet is too big or whatever holds a plug in place is missing! Anyone else experiencing this?

Nope, mine does not fall out, even with the daughter pulling the plug out...

Buy a 5500 watt inverter, install it under the back seat, have a stereo shop run battery grade cables under the sills/carpet from the battery and you can computers, printers....air horns, even a small refrigerator!!!! I used the 110, but had too many applications running...

I've done that in all my trucks but they seem to go out after about a year. Have you found one that works well? I tried several from Best Buy and the last one was a Husky from Sears.

I run inverters all the time for work. I have had good luck with "Go Power" brand. Just do a serch for them on the internet. A 2500w will give you about 20amps AC. Just a reminder though, this will draw over 200amps on the DC side off of your truck. Most people don't realize how much load they actually put on your vehicle, so high idle apllications have been great in my experience.

On my last vehicle I also used welding cable, as it is more durable, and ran the cable under the tuck, and came up under the back seat, as the cable required for that much amp load is quite large to run inside.

I'm ordering an 11' and I'm looking at getting the dual alternators! I believe it has a total of 357 amps. It should be able to handle the load. Any thoughts?

my only thoght on this is that the rated out put is at a certain RPM. I am unsure what it is, but it is alot easier on the batteries if you can get max out put from your alternators.
