    Default Where to connect to power for Accessory outlet? '22 RT-L

    I am the new owner of a 22 RT Limited. I was surprised to find there is no 12v accessory outlet in either the front storage or rear top case. If I wanted to add an outlet in the top case, (there appears to be a place for one), what/where would I connect to for power? I don't really want to run wiring all the way to the battery, if I can help it.

    There's a connector designed to power a gps located under the tupperware just forward of your right knee. I cut off the connector and used the 2 wires to supply a usb and 12 volt plug. If you are on Facebook search for my posts in "Can Am Spyder RT Lovers". Search under Richard Stebbins.

    There are three accessory wires. One next to the battery, one somewhere under the left handlebar area and one under the passenger seat. This is on my 2021 F3 Ltd and mentioned in my owners manual. Although it’s better to use a smartphone as it works with the dash and is a GPS.

    Or... pick up a Show Chrome fuse block or Neutrino Black Box. the Show Chrome is plug and play and adds accessory connections for brake and turn signal output and both ignition-on and constant-on connections. Neutrino is app controlled and provides a ton of user defined power outputs. I actually use both to customize a ton of accessories.

    Flamewinger, the OP has a ‘22 RT. The accessory points are in different positions to the F3, with the primary being under front right side painted panel.

    Attached are photos of a Powerlet plug on my Spyder RT Limited. Go to Powerlet.com and purchase one of their kits. Make sure it is one with a long enough line to reach the battery. You can buy a plug to charge your bike or run your heated gear off of it.

    I was wondering why I didn't know about those 3 accessory wires and why I had never found them. Because they are not there Good catch Pete!

    Hahaha……it stood out because I had a ‘16 F3 and used every one of those 3 points, Dave. Mind you, I’m not sure if there are others than the right side on the ‘20+ RT, as I didn’t search because I ran a Neutrino box from the battery and everything runs off that on my ‘21……apart from the grill light from Lamont that came with a plug for the right side socket

    I had no trouble finding them on my 2021 but my 2018 didn’t have anything. Both bikes got a Neutrino Black Box to power my accessories. The one thing I don’t know is are all 3 accy points on one fuse or do they have a fuse each? (Safer to use fuseblock)

    It's not in the top case but there is an easy 12v add in the frunk. Looking at the battery it is on the right-hand side.
