To avoid serious injury or death: WARNING!

To avoid serious injury or death:

Only devices designed for use in this type of outlet should be inserted into any 12 Volt outlet.
Do not touch with wet hands.
Close the lid when not in use and while driving the vehicle.
If this outlet is mishandled, it may cause an electric shock and failure.
Many accessories that can be plugged in draw power from the vehicles battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if plugged in long enough, the vehicles battery will discharge sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
Accessories that draw higher power (i.e., coolers, vacuum cleaners, lights, etc.) will degrade the battery even more quickly. Only use these intermittently and with great caution.
After the use of high power draw accessories, or long periods of the vehicle not being started (with accessories still plugged in), the vehicle must be driven a sufficient length of time to allow the generator to recharge the vehicles battery.
