    The power inverter, for the AC plugs in the center console, resides up under the cup holders and is hard wired to the car thru the radio power wire; so it's on-off with the key. It's 175 Watts which is enough to run my external hard drive or charge my laptop (which has a 60W power supply). However it has never blown a fuse on that radio circuit. Note that the LCD screen and the remote wire for the amps and computer are also on this circuit.

    Finished Continued....again

    I hinged a piece of plywood for the new trunk deck. then spec'd the general sizes around where the hinge needed to be to still get the spare tire out. Surprizingly, everything actually worked to plan, and the spare tire is amazingly easy to get in and out.
