    Default factory 12 volt on ST LIMITED

    HELP!
    going on a trip, got a tire pressure/inflator for travel. Hooks up only to a 12 volt connector. Plug it in and it don't work! Works on car so not the new machine. I just replaced the fuse verifying correct choice by 2 dealers in area. The 12 volt plug STILL DOESN'T WORK! UGH! I plugged in a phone, 1st into my car and it connected for a charge. Tried it in Spyder, NOPE, no power at all. Suggestions? Ideas? Is the factory 12 volt replaceable??

    UPDATE: In the process of speaking to power sports it was suggested that yet another fuse was blown. I did find one so replaced it! The tire inflator worked but once I tried to add air to tire, It blew the fuse!! I'm guessing faulty inflator? I dunno but I'm returning it. Probably a reason in 5 years I never used the 12 volt plug on Spyder???

    Spydies typically have a 3.5 amp fuse on their 12V outlets - the compressors use about 6-10 amps depending on model. I recommend using a SAE plug wire set to the battery, and change out the lower amp fuse (typically found in a battery tender harness) with a 10 amp fuse, or just use the battery clips directly to the battery terminals if needed.

    The Quick fix found most as seen on tv in Walmart, just keep battery charged i like mine & the fact can swap to use cig plug if the battery is low. As to why your cig plug has issues, careful not to go above a 10A fuse MAX. 7A is plenty for most every 12 device & casual use

    Get a compressor with battery clips and be done with it. No bike wiring necessary. If you get a compressor with it's own battery, it will never be charged when you need it. That's Murphy's law.

    We have an air hawk. Haven't used it with the spyders yet, but a couple times with ATV. Works great
