My 2006 Triton has an access door on the awning side of the van under the rear seating.

It also has a power socket just under the seat that side which is handy as the cable comes through the kitchen unit wall and along the seat frame.

Si its not that hard to add a junction box and a spur by the locker door (I removed 4 screws and lifted off the seat frame for better access)

Found this while I was there, suggests a factory fitted coaxial cable .........wonder where the other end is?

The other end of the co ax is probably in one of the top rear cupboards in the plastic cable conduit cover

Mine is in the overhead locker at the back of the van, tucked into the corner.

Up to now, we have always passed an extension cable through the side window when we wanted power in the awning but, not to be outdone by a certain cactus grower, I also decided to fit a socket inside the external locker on our Triton.

Our van (a 2003 420) has the kitchen in the sharp end and the fridge immediately to the left of the entrance door. As I was unsure where to pick up the supply for the socket, I emailed good old JohnE who suggested I use an existing junction box accessible from behind the top external fridge vent. Well it would have been accessible if I hadn't fitted a couple of fridge fans behind it a couple of years ago.

So I took the worktop off the fridge, connected the cable into the connector blocks and ran it over the wheel arch to the new socket in the locker.

Dead easy.
