Hello, I did use the search function. My 82 camper has a small 12 volt factory accessory outlet to the left of the vent controls in the dashboard. I removed it for a project I am working on. I can drill a new hole and reinstall it, but don't know that it would ever get used. Is there a company making a "male" end for this factory accesory outlet? Thank you.

It's an odd European outlet. I think Bus Depot sells the plug. There have been other posts about it too.

I think BMW motorcycle dealer can get you one, and I got one from local John Deere dealership

The John Deere part # on the package is RE11344

Its made by Bosch and has the Bosch part # 0 352 321 001

Or just put in a standard US socket since you have to drill a new hole anyway. Go Westy has them, I think Sesquhenna has them as well.

Been used since the 1950's or so. You can get new ones here and there. Look in the classifieds. I recall being able to buy them some where on line too. Not a US item and hence it seems odd to most of us.

yep, if I'm not mistaken it's how my buddy plugs in his heated vest that he wears when it's cold.
