12v cooler

edited November -1 in Model 3
I have a 12 volt / 45 watt cooler (crude refrigerator) that I would like to leave running in my Model 3. The power drain is small (1.1 kwh / day) but according to the manual the 12 v outlet is only on when the touchscreen is on. This would appear to make it impossible to leave the cooler on while hiking etc. Does anyone have a workaround?

    There is a small rubber port on the passenger-side footwell which allows you to get wiring through so you can directly connect to the 12v batter which is in the compartment behind the frunk.

    Doing this most likely voids your warranty.
