    With Hurricane Irma possibly headed in my direction, I'm trying to my ducks in a row for backup power at the house. I previously had a LEAF, and bought a 1000w inverter that easily connected to the 12V battery. I'm not entirely familiar with where the 12V battery or DC-DC converter is on the 2017 cars, so I was wondering if anyone has a quick how-to. I thought I remember seeing that the DC-DC converter moved around in various years.

    Thanks!

    I used this video I found on YouTube, to locate the 12V lugs. I hooked up a 1000W inverter to test with, and everything worked fine.
