Can you keep the 12V outlets on when the car is off?

    I found this in the the 2017 Model X Service Manual: F131 MICRO2 - 15A IGN - Trailer Connector
    I assume the trailer plug has a 15A fuse.

    "18" connects the post to 12V battery positive terminal (they call this "B+" which connects to all fuses". "17" connects to the DCDC converter and the terminal that connects to "B+" through F1 (MEGA-250A fuse). Hope this helps.

    Most DC to AC converter with the cig lighter plug can only do 100W anyway...

    Got it, thanks... the jumpost cable 18 on the battery fuse block. Be careful to use an inline fuse when running an inverter in this area. :cool:
