3731FL "What/why is this" question

This naked looking 12 volt outlet is my closet alongside the coax connections. What is it for and is it missing something?

This is a cigarette lighter 12v type plug. Some 12 volt TVS use this for power. Nothing is missing. Notice the coax fitting and the small booster button next to it. The booster button is used for a better picture from the airways.

You can also use the 12v plug for a small inverter when you don't have shore power or gen power available.

It can be used for anything requiring 12v supply. I use mine to plug in my Mobley.

A good place to hook-up a CPAP when you don't have 110. Of course you need the correct CPAP cord. Don't try to use the humidifier in the CPAP or you will drain your battery real fast.

I'm using it for the booster on the TMPS.
