Ones with volt meter

round or rectangular pair

Then back in the outside cable bay, I removed the old phone jack, added a fuse, borrowed 12V from a local circuit, and used the old phone wiring to send 12V to the USB adapters. Since the phone cable has 4 wires, I doubled them up to prevent voltage drop and fused accordingly for 2*22ga wire.

Worked great and no need to pull new wire.

Mose, great idea and a good job doing it. I might even be able to handle this one with your instructions.
