Re: 115V AC Outlet Wiring

you all kidding right? you know there is no 115 volt power in a Auto, its 12volt DC. you need an inverter to change the 12 VDC to 115 VAC. Its not just a plug. And tell me what have you found this useful for? i do have the factory inverter, yet even when camping i have not found a need for it.

Behind that 115 plug panel is a 3"x5"x8" (approx) inverter installed on a bracket. I noticed this when I removed the panel and installed my amp under it.

Re: 115V AC Outlet Wiring

I don't mean to resurrect a dead thread, but I was told that the FJ is prewired throughout, BUT!!!! And heres the BUT!!! For the 115V adapter in the rear there is a wire harness that runs across the top of the firewall. When I purchased my FJ it had the button on the dash for the power inverter, but no plug in the rear, also no wire harness across the firewall. (Thanks to Siri from FJNORTHEASTERS). I also wanted to install it but I just use an inverter instead. Im thinking about putting a 12V back there instead for my mini fridge on long road trips....

Question Re: 115V AC Outlet Wiring

One of the members on here used a house type covered outdoor outlet installed on the passenger side panel. Possibly wired to an inverter? Does anyone know who that is? I had it bookmarked, but lost all the links. HELP PLZ!!!

It looked like this one...

Re: 115V AC Outlet Wiring

Anyone considering doing any kind of wiring setup and not sure where to start or don't have any wiring experience, give this guy a shot:
Ron Francis Wiring

I rewired my 1950 Dodge Coronet one Saturday in about 3 hours....the entire car.
And, when you call if you have any questions, 9 times out of 10, Ron himself answers the phone. The guy is super reasonable and very helpful.

And as for having a use for it, I myself live in an upstairs apartment.
Whenever I need to vacuum out my truck, I use it.
I also used it to drill those 3 holes in the back for the drivers side Aries tail light guard.

I find it handy.
