USB Charger on the end of the kitchen island

The USB charger on the end of my kitchen island stopped working. The 12V cigarette lighter still works, and there is 12V on the back of the USB charger. It appears there may be some sort of internal fuse, or it just decided to die. I found some Powerwerx models but they fit the "standard" 1 1/8" hole. Mine hole is 7/8". There doesn't appear to have a model number on it but I scratched the label while disassembling it. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement? Didn't think when we bought the trailer this would become important. So many things use USB charging now.

Without a picture to compare to it is hard to figure out what kind you have.


try this link: https://www.trekwood.com/products/65...ort-Oval-Black


looks pretty pricey!!!!



Post a picture and we will see what we can locate.

That is the panel, but I only need the USB part of it. I don't really want to pay that much. I think I have attached a picture of the piece removed.

We Junked ours a few years ago as there wasn't enough power there to charge our phones.

I'd say Radio Shack but I think they're history!
Might Batteries +, or possibly auto parts stores.
Trekwood's too pricey (on most stuff) & that didn't include their extremely high shipping charge (even higher than their prices).

Just to clarify, ours was in a standard RV electrical box, with a single 120 AC outlet and two USB ports. But as I said those USB ports wouldn't put out enough juice to recharge our phones, so I replaced with a standard duplex outlet and ordered several high power charges to plug into the outlets.

Well I have searched and found no direct replacement, except to buy the whole panel. I took the panel out and can easily dremel out the hole to fit a bigger cylinder, so I ordered the following with 2-3 amp ports and a voltmeter.

Yes I saw those but needed a round one that will fit in the hole, once I make it bigger. I also went for the 3 amp, since it will charge our phones faster.

If it were me I'd remove the original with the cig plug/USB & mount 2 of those pictured by Eugene even if I had to use a stained piece of wood to mount them in to cover the original hole.

Nice! I also added the dual USB ports to the left side of the Executive Workstation/TV, in the slideout next to the 2 recliners and to both sides of the bedroom slide out.

NOTE: We found that the Blue light was too bright in the bedroom while trying to sleep to I sprayed the front of the USB port with the below product. That worked pretty well.
