Yeah those are banana plugs, I only have them because that is what was there on the DC cord when I bought my used fridge, actually probably going to switch it to a regular 12v "cigarette lighter" plug, I don't really have anything else to run using banana plugs.stevezero said:Firetruck, are those banana plugs that youre connecting up through the CLA? Why not tap off one of your power points and put in a couple of female banana plugs right above your CLA? You could still have your CLA available for other stuff.
On my old taco, i took a 3 outlet radio shack CLA, and wired in two sets of bananas in between the CLA outlets. I flew RC planes, and used a couple of 12v chargers that ran off the bananas. Those stayed on in the truck all the time. All connections were soldered into the CLA buss. I then took some 10 guage, ran a link from the battery (fused at both ends) and to a tamiya R/C battery connector. I could connect the whole CLA assembly easily, and remove it if I was hauling something.
