Question 12v Cigarette style outlet and catalytic heaters

We have a 16 ft. deluxe Scamp and I want to add a 12v outlet as described so I can plug a small inverter into it to power our small dvd/tv combo. We have the American converter, model CS2000XL 20a and I am wondering how to go about adding another circuit if possible or grabbing power from an existing circuit and using an inline fuse for the cig. outlet?
Has anyone done something similar?

On another note I am about to replace the noisy furnace/ fan with a Camco Olympian Wave 3. Has anyone done this swap and does the Olympian fit the opening of the stock furnace?

if there are spare unused fuses in the main panel, wire the + lead of the cigarette socket to the terminal next to this spare fuse, wire the - lead to the common DC ground terminal thats probably on the back of the power converter. for 15A (aboutt he max a cigar socket can safely draw), I would use 14 AWG wiring... maybe even AWG12 if its a long run.

I kinda went overboard on my Escape, and wired up not only a cigar socket, but also a dual USB charger, and a pair of PP30 PowerPole outlets (the latter each fused at 30A). but my escape has 160W solar system and dual golf cart batteries...
details here on the Escape forum...
