My 3013 Longhorn has the USB under the cover in the upper console as yours - only have one 12v which is in console - goes off
The rear 12v outlet also goes off with ignition

I am having to run hot 12v from battery just to power 10 amp braking system used when towing behind motorhome - a real pain

My 12 volt in my fold down center console stays hot now that I changed the fuse position. I have the center seat with buckets.

The one on the left is for the center console and as you can see, cannot be moved.

Note the top of the picture is towards the windshield.
tev9999 - Thanks a bunch for showing us this mod!! I moved the fuse last night and my rear 12v outlet works like a champ when the truck is off!!!

Not sure why they both don't act the same way, but the whole issue is to keep you from draining your battery--which can happen in no time with some appliances left plugged in and it's hot when the truck is off.

I think the standard ac plug one is hot when off. In any case, one of them (I think that one) is hot when off, BUT it will shut off automatically a set time after your truck is shut off--again, to save you from draining your battery down. I don't know for certain but I bet a note comes up on EVIC when this happens.

For folks with old timers disease like me---who don't use the things often enough to keep it straight--you can just look at the symbols by each plug in.

Glad you posted this with the picture and glad I found it. Finally got my truck and one of the first disappointments was to find there is nowhere to plug in my ARB fridge/freezer. My Longhorn only came with two outlets, both keyed hot only - or so I thought.

I have already checked my manual, both the printed one that came with the truck and the one on CD and had not found anything about this fuse either. Guess I wasn't looking in the right sections.

Planning a long dirt drive on Sunday with the family after I finish up some mods and was thinking I was going to have to revert to old fashioned ice and cooler until I could find time to install a new always hot outlet.

Will eventually install a couple more outlets anyway, with heavy guage wire for low voltage drop and high amp draw, including at least one in the bed, but for now, this is just the ticket!

Does this fuse mod work the same for the 2500? If so, which fuse is it?
