Ural sidecar power outlet- part two

I see that they added it around 2006. Can anyone tell me what kind of plug it is? My wife and I will be picking up a new to us 2010 and she'd like to buy an electric blanket for a long trip home. I'd like to swap out the plug before we fly out. (if necessary)

edit 3/4/2012. Need to know if it's switched or always on.

powerlet/BMW, Ural of NE carries a blanket with the plug already on the end of it, around $65 IIRC.

BMW outlet

Mine is a BMW style receptacle in the tub. I still put an SAE plug-outlet direct wired to the battery for my electric (Gerbing) jacket and for the low amp charger under the driver's seat. My puppies have not required an electric blanket-not yet anyway!

So did mine. I think IMWA switched to the BMW plug in 2008. That's what you'll find on the 2010. I've heard but have not confirmed that John Deer has the same plug for a whole lot less then BMW.

My '10 GearUp sidecar has the BMW-style socket. Powerlet makes adapters to go to "standard" cigarette-lighter sockets; even a dual outlet one.

Hey Tom,

The wire that supplies the outlet in the tub is a fairly small gauge, and on the long side. It would be best if you add a plug directly to the battery for powering an electric blanket or heated gear.

I was surprised to discover a cycle air pump with a cigarette (SAE?) adapter I got over a year ago and never used works great with the socket in the sidecar of my 06 GearUp.

Ah, there's a tidbit I needed. I think I'll bring my own fused triple outlet to bolt to the battery. My vest, her blanket (yet to be bought) and the GPS all need power.
Thanks again guys.

You may want to get Her an Electic Blanket. It's cheaper and covers more area. They are on sale right now at Sportsmans Guide.

Electric blanket

I bought a 12v electric blanket through Amazon.com with a variable thermostat. There were a number of models available. Mine has a U.S. cigarette lighter plug but I have a European adapter available. The missus likes the blanket.

OK, thanks to you guys I now bought a triple cigarette outlet with a built in 5V USB outlet. I have taken it apart and soldered on a longer, heavier wire with a waterproof fuse. The ends will go directly to the battery. The outlet will be mounted in the tub. I would like to add a relay so the outlets turn off with the ignition switch. Seeing that I'd never use a BMW style outlet, I was thinking of using the factory outlet in the tub to activate the relay- assuming it turns off with the key. This way nothing in the factory wiring gets touched.
Who can tell me if the factory BMW style outlet is switched?
Again- I'm in NY and my new bike is tucked away in Washington state so I have to ask you guys. It's a 2010 Gear Up.
Thanks yet again,
Tom
