Thread: 12v accessory socket

    12v accessory socket

    Well, that's both the 12v accessory sockets in the truck given up the ghost after lamping for a few hours. Both times it's a connecting wire in the socket itself that melts, which I'll easy repair. I shall now set about fitting a hardier socket with a proper connection capable of sustaining the current draw without generating so much heat. Using a Lightforce 170 with an as fitted cigar lighter plug, but I feel some modifications coming on. Last time it happened I was just scoping up on a fox.

    I now use marine 12v sockets - check out Autostar on Fleabay - and they have a twist lock so they don't pull out at inopportune moments either.....

    Not had a heating issue, but I upgraded the cables too.
