I did this today. I didn't use the add-on dual circuit adapter. I removed glovebox, than t-tap to power outlet. I add an in-line fuse (10A) at the end

This is great. I will also be doing this soon. I will also run one or 2 to the cargo area in the back.

Will post pics.

I don't know if the 4.4 is different from my 4.3 base but I have a power outlet inside of the center console besides the one on lower dashboard. If you so wish, you could extend your wiring from there to the back face of the console.

Just finished installing my new 12V Socket and Dual 5V USB Socket. Looks great and best of all, it works. Always encouraging. :-)

Thanks for the idea and the brief 'How to ...' photos/description, cemeb4dk.

And another RAV4 rear cabin power update

And here's mine to show how easy it is :-)

Black (NEG) wire bolts to the left side console anchoring bolt.

Yellow (12VDC) wire combines both USB/12VDC sockets with brass joiner. Taped for safety.

12VDC/6A 20mm rocker switch was installed to cut power to rear cabin for safety.

Inline fuse installed in engine bay.

Question about Fuses

This is a fantastic "Hack" which I would like to implement on my 2015 RAV 4 XLE. Any regret or issues after 3 years?

I noticed in the manual that both Fuses # 8 and #17 are listed as power outlets fuses... ("power outlet #1" and "Power Outlet #2"). Is the single existing power outlet in the front center console utilizing both fuses?

I see based on the picture that you plugged your "add a fuse" connector to port #17. Did you still use two 15 amp fuses?

Finally, any idea what the diameter of the screw where you plugged the ground/neutral is? I just want to make sure I use the proper diameter loop connector...

Thanks.

I want to buy 14 gauge wire to do this.

What is the length you used to go from the cover to the fuse box and still look clean? Do you believe 6 feet is enough?
