    As I recall the body is threaded onto the outlet. Remove the wires and twist. Exploded view below fir reference.

    You must have paid extra for the gold mine is chrome! Thanks Pete, but mine just spins loosely with out coming apart. It all started with becoming loose on the mounting bracket.

    This plug as well as the optional backseat 12 volt option is hot wired to the battery via a fuse. Seems like an invitation to deplete the battery. Is there a logic for this design versus protecting it behind the master switch?

    I think it is wired that way so it can be used to connect a battery maintainer/charger. Unfortunately my hangar rules don't allow it to be used unattended for that purpose.

    When I wired my EX I put a 12v receptacle at the rear side of the seat base and have it direct to the hot side of the master contactor with a fuse. Just like yours, I think. When Iím camping I can charge various devices without the master on. Unless you left something plugged in to it for an extended period (like months) I canít see it running the battery down.
