    Post 20 amp battery constant feed

    Am fitting a tow bar on my vectra and am needing two 20 amp constant live feeds for the 12s (AUX) plug for my caravan.
    Is there any spare feeds in the boot?
    Either that or i will have to run a cable to the battery.
    Cheers for any info.

    Would these connections not be standard if the correct towing kit is used? I thought they were basically plug and play, with a bit of Tech2 jiggery pokery afterwards to enable the multisocket connection?

    I have just received the towing kit for my vectra from the local vx dealer.
    The standard 7 pin socket was approx £40.00 all in,
    The 13 pin euro socket is approx £55.00.
    I got the 13 pin version and as you say they are just plug and play apart from the tech 2 part, and the fact that the reverse wire is not connected into the wiring harness for the towbar for some reason.

    Many thanks to all who replied, much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Dave
