I'm looking to order my Enclave in next day or two and am considering whether or not to get the luxury package. Looks like delivery could be sooner if I don't get it.

Here's my question: How many power outlets are there and where are they located? Does the luxury package just replace a cigarette adaptor with a 115V AC plug or is the AC plug in addition to the cigarette adaptors?

Any help appreciated.

I've got a CXL with Ent#2, sunroof, Luxury pack.,Driver confidence pack.,trailer pack., chrome wheels. I checked the inside & there is one cigarette adapt by the front shift lever, one next to the AC adapter in 2nd row, & one behind but accessable to the 3rd row seats. So, basic answer, there is a cig. adapt next to the 115V AC adapter in 2nd row... :thumb:

there is also an cig adapter in the bottom of the front row console... you have to take out the little tray and it is in there.

Great, thanks for the info. Looks like the luxury package ADDs the AC adaptor in addition to the cigarette adaptor that is already there. Too cool.

Does anyone know where the reset is for the AC adapter? My son blew it using a drill to mount a speaker and I just haven't had the opportunity to read the manual yet.

Thanks,

Dan

I don't know the answer but that brings on another question. Some members have mentioned buying an Inverter instead of paying so much for the package that has the 115V outlet. Does anyone know what the Rating is on the built in 115V outlet ?

dan,

its likely not the reset button you need, i bet he blew the fuse drill used too much voltage.... check the fuses.

Rocketman......the rating is in the manual. In case you don't have a manual its rated at 150 watts, obviously for use by small electronics.

The plug hidden in the center console is great for cell phones. There's a gap at the back of the tray that sits in the console so you can plug in your charger and then just leave the end that goes into the cell phone sticking above into the tray. Makes it easy to just put the phone in the tray and plug it into the power.

He's talking watts and you are talking volts. Watts = volts * amps (voltage * current).

zman, thats absolutely correct. Thanks for clarifying that. Rocketman

So basically you have roughly 1.30 Amp fuse. In other words running anything that requires more that 1.2 Amp could potentially blow up the fuse. Which a drill could very easily.

The Fuse could possibly handle 20-25% more but, a drill will pull much more than that outlet can handle.
I would be interested in what the problem was.

My Milwaukee corded hammer drill is 6.0 amps, so I'd guess I'd need somewhere around a 700 watt inverter to power it. Even a whimpy corded drill would be 4.5+ amps. The inverter that comes with the Lux package isn't even close to handling that.

I am not sure if this is what you are saying, but....

Simply using a larger inverter in the Enclave will not gain you anything, you will still be limited by the circuit in the Enclave. The inverter does not add any capacity.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Highly unlikely anything is fused for anything more than 15-20 [email protected] Volts or about 200 watts max. Unless you create your own wiring system and build a fuse and wiring that can handle more power.

yes, thank you. You would not only need a larger inverter, but it would also have to be hardwired and fused with something greater than what the 12v Enclave outlets have. The point is that you won't be plugging a vacuum into your Enclave for cleaning it, nor running any high-amp power tools off of it. It's a low duty outlet that can also be cheaply replaced with a plug-in, off-the-shelf inverter for those without the so called luxury package. Sorry to have mislead anyone...
