I am planning to do some car camping with the MX when it arrives. I would like to use a 12V powered refrigerator/freezer (ARB Fridge Freezer 37 Qt) while travelling. It draws an average of 1.35A (16.2W) so not a big impact to range. I am hoping to get answers to a few question to determine if this will be practical or not. (1) Is there a 12V power outlet in the rear of the car or is there only the one up front? (2) Does the 12V power outlet remain energized when the car is parked? I will switch to land power whenever it is available but there are many campsites without electricity. (3) Is the 12V power outlet sourced by the 12V battery circuit or is it derived from the high voltage battery inverter? (4) If sourced from the 12V battery, would pulling 1.35 amps for say 12 hours leave it unable to support power up of the car the next morning? Thanks to anyone who can help with these questions.
