    I bought a dash cam and currently use the cigarette outlet to power it but want to monitor while parked so I bought the hardwire kit and need to connect to the fuse box. Is there one inside the vehicle? If so which outlet would be best?

    Welcome! I don't have a dash cam but I run multiple sets of 12v offroad lights straight from the battery with inline fuses, relays, and switches. Allows the switch to light up when flicked on, and run lights with the truck off and keys out. Could prolly rig a dash cam that way, or maybe someone here is aware of constant power from the interior fuse box?

    In Canada I've used this wiring harness (and upgraded to OEM style dash switches), works excellent.
