I am re-designing my battery box and when I do the rewiring I want to add a battery port onto the outside of the console for future use.
I want a socket on the console that is;
- Flush Mounted so people wont knock it off as space will be tight.
- Water proof when not in use
I have seen some online, but the flush mounted is a bit of a struggle, and I don't really want to go down the route of making my own recess to mount the socket in.
The other option is a caravan / motor home hookup socket - but I don't really want to use something like this as no doubt someone will use the electric hookup at a marina and blow it all up as it will just be onto the battery.
My plan would then be to make up various plugs for the various uses like solar panel, car towing electrics, battery charger, jump leads...
