Good 12 Volt Constant Power Source

There is a good source for constant 12v outlet power on my 2017 RTL-E on the relay mounted to the side of the 110v inverter behind the drivers side rear passenger seat.
The bottom trim just pulls off and the relay will come off the mount without removing anything else. The sill trim pulls off the same way.
You will have to remove some of the plastic retaining clips that stick in the body and reinstall in the trim before reinstalling.

I think this relay powers the inverter when the ignition is switched on. When you un-plug the relay the inverter turns off with the ignition on.
The relay has (2) 12ga wires and some small ones. The heavy white is battery (B+) power and the red is energized when the inverter is on)

Tag your 12v outlet power (B+) to the white wire with an appropriately sized inline fuse. There is a ground screw in the same location.
