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.
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...
Looking for a way to do something similar, I want to have my dashcam constantly powered by the accessory plug, instead of powering on and off with the key. Is there a way I can jump the circuit at the fuse box? I tinkered around in it a bit but for the life of me I can't figure out how to make it work. TIA!
