Inverter Recommendation for Trailer Interior for Powering Lighting

Question:

I made a tear trailer but have not put 12v lights on the inside, the running lights are on and working, the tow vehicle only has a 12 v plug and the trailer only has a 12 v plug, so is there a way to use those plugs to power the inside of the trailer, is there an adapter I could use to replace the trailer 12v plug, I dont want to change the plug on the 2018 Jeep Compass as its a factory one. Any suggestions will be appreciated thanks.

Do your interior lights power with 12 volts or are they AC power? Are you looking for an inverter to convert to 120 volts?

We have inverters like the part # WC3720 which converts 12 volts to 120 which then gives you outlets for the lights to plug into if they are the standard interior style of lights.

Question:

No 12v electric power in the trailer cabin. Only has 110 v to plug into.no battery at this time on the trailer. I can rewire the trailer with a 5 or 6 or 7 pin plug but the car only has a 4 pin plug. Is there an adapter. so the I can run inside lights from a battery and will an adapter charge said battery.

Since you have a 4-way what you'll need to convert it to a 7-way is the part # 37185. Then to complete the 12 volt circuit you'd need to run a length of 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1 from the battery to the black wire through a breaker # 9510.
