The 1026R has some spare positions in the fuse-box of which I just allocated one of them for the addition of my winch. Fuse ready and easy access makes this the logical choice! Running anything drawing any sizable power will likely be more than the cigarette lighter would take - I think its designed mainly to power a cell phone/iPod only.I'm looking at ways to add several lights for snowblowing. Will probably unplug headlights to reduce glare, but use the little sidelights. Also thinking about an electric winch and other goodies.
Anyone here know the max current rating of the "cigarette lighter" outlet? Plugs I've found so far are fused for 5A and have only #26 wire, so that might not be a good option even if the outlet can safely power a pair of 55W floods.
I haven't found a thread yet that discussed this in detail. Can someone please advise where we can plug into an unused connector slot for auxiliary lighting? My preference is an unswitched line, with a toggle at the lights. But anything that won't harm the tractor is fine.
