...United Radio Supply in NE Portland...
I tried to look for this supplier, and I think they are now URS Electronics. Are these the right people, Per? If they are, it looks like they're a in-person or phone-order business - the web site lists Neutrik (the maker of Speakon) as a supplier, but there's no product information apparent.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Peter, that sounds like a great plan... for those who will be able to be in Oregon. I won't be, but I hope to see photos of your work posted.

Byron, I can believe that the white fiberglass cabinet works decently with the CCFL tubes - for those who have them. My cabinets are fake-wood paneling. Even if I added a white or reflective sheet for a better background, I would still want a reflector to direct the light in a more useful pattern.

Brian:

URS Electronics is correct. 503 344-5341. Neutrik is also correct.

Byron:

Disagree with me? Well, I never.......
I of course neglected to mention that anything plugged into it needs the corresponding change to the cord. I find these plugs exceptionally easy to wire up, and I don't mind. Most of my chargers and things go to 120v AC anyway, and I hard-wired a parallel set of outlets for inverter 120. These are in a festive and colorful decorator gray to distinguish them from the white shore power ones.

I was unaware of better cigarette lighter type outlets from the marine world. I did make up a short converter adapter for the rare time when all I have is a cord with the "wrong" plug. Did I mention that I view my trailer as a "Wire me Burro" doll?

Back references on the topic of 12VDC electrical outlets in the trailer...

Breeze Fan
  • socket discussion starting around post #24
TV/DVD/CD/Radio/ Stereo, All in one and does not take up any space
  • Marinco information starting around post #15
There isn't a really good Marinco link in either of those topics, but today I found the Marinco Shore Power 12V Products page. They also have a Connect Pro line of connectors intended for trolling motors (DC, the right voltage range, and high current); it may be a great connector (I've only seen them on websites), but I don't know that we need another uncommon and expensive connector, no matter how good.

I mentioned in one of those that I would be added outlets, but I have not got that far in my to-do list yet.
