Heated jacket power
« on: October 16, 2015, 11:48:25 pm »
Guys, how is everyone providing power to heated jackets? I have the coaxal type plug.

Looks like my options are:

Use the 12v plugs on engine and rear seat(wife)

Run a pigtail directly to the battery

Run a seperate fuse block from battery then run my jackets from it.

Here is a link to a post with a couple of pictures of my fuse block install.
https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,3809.msg48824.html#msg48824

I used a 60A switched relay, and a separate grounding block so I only ran one hot and one ground off the battery to the block through a black wiring loom, and installed two separate circuits of Gerbings coax panel mount plugs on the left side cover front and rear end for rider and passenger Gerbings (or other heated gear) to plug into.  Good part is it can be fused to supply whatever the max draw for the gear being used is by removing the riders seat and changing a fuse.  Pretty inexpensive one afternoon job, but something like a PDM60 has much more versatility for the extra money.  Depends on just what you need.

Triumph already provided two DIN plug outlets for this purpose. Just use them and ride on!   :028:

I also use the DIN connector by my left shin. This adaptor might be what you need. http://www.amazon.com/Atomic-Skin-PPC-005-Powerlet-Socket/dp/B00LB49S66

I will get the adapters, but I took a ride where I needed my heated vest so I just wired it to the battery and ran the wire under the Triumph Tank bag.  Worked great.

I use a heated car seat adapted to a Poncho - din plug already fitted, 2 heat settings and more heat than I'll ever need, teetering on  :264:
