Anker Power strip mod


Recommended Posts

To have a more central organized spot to charge our iPads and iPhones I ordered this power strip. I purchased the white cord moulding from Lowe’s which has a strong adhesive strip on the back. It matches fairly close. It’s a fairly straight forward install and really cleans things up a bit. I have ordered one for the galley so we don’t have the coffee pot cord or toaster cord dangling in the air while in use. It has pretty solid reviews and has worked well for us so far. I used a small piece of white Velcro to hold it in place while in travel.

Oliver must have eliminated some of the AC power outlets and USB ports on your 2020 Elite II.   Our 2019 has a LOT of AC sockets and USB ports throughout the trailer.  We have an AC outlet, DC cigarette lighter socket and 2 USB ports on EACH side of the nightstand, a DC cigarette lighter socket and 2 USB ports above EACH bed under the cabinets, and an AC outlet under each bed overhang, plus AC, DC cigarette lighter and USB under the dinette, and AC by the closet and in the “attic”.  More AC, DC and USB ports than we will ever use.

Yup, they did.  I was somewhat surprised in my new-to-me 2020 that they didn't have outlets in the places you mentioned.  Really miss the one under the dinette table, like I had in the Casita. Weird having it in the aisle.  I do need to go look under the bed overhang, maybe there is something there...but not obvious if so.

So yours has no factory USB ports on the sides of the nightstand?

Thats funny. I wish my outlets were on the aisle side, instead of under the dinette, in my 2008. I feel like I'm standing on my head to connect power cords, so rarely use them.

We have 4 12v- over the stove, under the table, one beneath the attic, and one outside. 4 110s- one above the (abandoned) microwave , one under the small dinette, one on the side of the kitchen drawer cabinet,  one outside. Maybe five. I think there is also one (abandoned) in the attic for the abandoned KingDome. 

We rarely have 110, but I do occasionally use the 12v plugs for charging phones.

My sister's rpod had not a single 12v plug when she bought it. They're pretty easy to add, though.

I like Patriots tiny solution.

In my 2016 I requested the addition of a 110, a 12 volt, and two USB's on the street side of the nightstand.  I also had production add one 12 volt on the exterior right below the 110 outlet on the curbside.

I rarely use the outlets in the kitchen, so, the hanging cords don't bother me there.

When we ordered we asked for 110V outlets in the closet and near the nightstand.  We also asked for USB ports on the nightstand.  They didn’t do the USB ports or the 110V outlet near the nightstand.  When I pointed that out, they said “oops, we’ll fix that”.  10 minutes later it was fixed, both were done.  Point is, installing additional outlets is not a big deal.  So if you need an additional outlet it can be done fairly easily.  Mike
