Default Power source for accessories?

Can anyone tell me of a convenient power source that I can easily tap into for powering accessories? At the moment I need to install the cable for my caravan's rear view camera, so a power feed (for the monitor) somewhere around/under the dash area would be ideal, but needs to be ignition switched not full time live...

On my GC 2015 model the Cigarette lighter in the dash is Switched on/off with ignition. The one in the centre console armrest is permanently on.

Thanks for that Notso, appreciate your reply.

What I'm really after is a positive wire that I can solder a permanent connection to. The cable will stay in place as it's designed to be "hard wired" as opposed to plugged in.

There are not a lot of options to pick up 12 volts via ignition, but I tapped into the torch charger in the back cargo area. The cig lighter on the opposite side could be used and can be changed between on all time time or ignition at the fuse box under the bonnet.

Hi DM,

Not sure which part you are asking about - tapping into the torch charger - or changing the fuse position? Clarify please.

Regards

Right hand rear accessory socket is by far the easiest to get to, forget the dash or console option I recently fitted a dual battery and had to literally remove most of the centre console and still couldn't access the loom for the outlet in the console itself.

In the rear just remove the bumper to carpet cover, seal, then pop off the right hand rear plastic trim to access the harness
