How to Install the Roadmaster 12 Volt Outlet Kit on a 2016 Chevrolet Sonic

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Sonic were going to be taking a look at and installing the 12-Volt Outlet Kit rated at 20 amps, part number RM-9332. Heres what the 12 volt outlets going to look like once its installed on the vehicle. As you can see, weve got nice easy access to it, and weve got that in order to use our portable braking system with it because the outlets on that car do not have power when in tow mode, so we need this in order for our portable braking system to be able to function. This outlet connects directly to the battery so we can make sure that we get direct power and were not trying to fight through any fuses that may or may not get shut off when in tow mode. This outlet is nice and simple to use. As soon as you plug something into it youve got power. Even if you need an extra outlet on your car this will work perfectly for that. Its nice and easy to tuck out of the way or when not in use you can simply bundle it out.

You can use a twist tie or rubber band to make sure it stays together. Just tuck it up out of the way when not in use. That way its not bulky and in the way. Now lets go ahead and show you how to install it. The first thing were going to be doing to install this 12-volt outlet is were going to need to go through that large grommet there in order to route our wiring underneath the hood to gain power for the 12-volt outlet. Now go ahead and cut a little X pattern in that grommet to allow access for wires to go through there.

Now from the inside Ill take the wires for the 12-volt outlet and push them through that grommet. Once you got both of those started going through there, reach in and begin to work them through. Once weve got it pulled through we can get ready to wire these in so we can get power to that outlet. Now what well do is well take both of our wires here and get ready to hook them up. In order to get this to fit and connect to the battery were going to need to get a couple different connectors for the ends here. The connectors Im going to be using are the larger yellow one, part number DW05705-1, and the smaller blue one is going to be part number DW05702-1.

If you need 2 of those you can get those on our site. Now what Ill do is Ill take this one which has a built-in in-line fuse here and Im just going to clip this inaudible 00:02:53 connector off the end of it. Then Ill strip the end of the wire back where I can install the larger yellow ring terminal. Ill clamp that down. Its not a bad idea to put a little bit of electrical tape around these on both connections just to help prevent moisture getting in there and causing corrosion. Then what Im going to do, because this is the power wire, Im going to hook it up to the positive side of the battery.

Right theres going to be a good connection point for that. Ill take the negative battery cable off and then Ill be able do that right there. Now Ill take a 12 mm and loosen up that nut. Ill remove that nut which will then allow me to take that new ring terminal that I just put on and install it right over that stud and I can replace that nut and tighten it down. Then I can replace the cover. Now I can move back to the wire thats going to go to the negative battery terminal, and Ill clip this small ring terminal off the end of it in order to install the little bit larger one. Again, remembering to put a little bit of tape on this one as well. With that installed Ill bring my negative battery cable back up, Ill tighten it down using a 10 mm, then Ill use a 10 mm to take off that small bolt right there. Now I can take that ring terminal I just installed and the wire for the negative, put it right on there and reinstall that bolt. Now our wiring is all hooked up for our 12-volt socket. Now we can check to make sure that are 12-volt outlet has power. Were going to use our portable braking system to do that. We plug it in. Weve got our little LED light on from the braking system, which lets us know were receiving power. Just to double check we can even turn on our braking unit to make sure. As you can see its turning on so we do have power. Thats going to complete our look at and install of the Roadmaster 12-Volt Outlet Kit rated at 20 amps, part number RM- 9332 on our 2016 Chevrolet Sonic. .
