RE: HOST Mystery 12vdc power port!!!???

Randall at Host would know if they installed it. If he says no maybe the unit was sold and returned shortly thereafter. I would think that the dealer would be obligated to disclose that. It's actually a neat feature but really odd that nobody can explain it. Randal, from HOST indicated that is not a mfg feature. Hence the mystery. I need to speak to the dealer and learn more about the history. I agree that it is a neat feature, but it is fused through the main panel for the fuse which servers the dinette slide. If I were to aftermarket install, I would make a higher amperage connection directly to the battery box, which is the same corner.

You said you bought the unit New . Any chance your dealer brought it in from another dealer who had it in inventory and it was added there for some reason . Since the Host community here has not corroborated either way, I agree that I need to drill down on the dealer source.

RE: HOST Mystery 12vdc power port!!!???

Does it work as shore TV connection? Do you need to move cable inside? Would be very easy for satellite connection. Sorry but your queries are of base. The cable / TV port is a documented feature of the Host Mammoth. The Power Port, below it, is the Mystery and the Factory says that is not a part of their design. I am reaching out to other Host owners to help sanity check this and see if anyone else has a 12vdc power port in this location. I purchased the camper new and have not added this mystery port. Thanks for your involvement, but I want to say on thread.

Is that receptacle just above the power port satellite? that white covered receptacle is the shore cable connection.

I surmise that someone installed it for powering something like a Winegard Carryout satellite dish or macerator pump. That is kind of what it appears to be for, which is what I will be using it for. The curiosity is that I purchased from the dealer New. Also, I do not know how to upload a photo to a post, otherwise I would offer a photo of mine which shows the port.

HOST Mystery 12vdc power port!!!???

Hello, Any Host TC owners out there who can give me a sanity check?? I have a 2019 Host Mammoth and on mine, in the Generator Bay there is a 12v DC Power port plugin above the Generator next to the Cable connector (under cap). I was happy about the feature because I have an inflator and macerator which both have a 12vdc power port plug in and the outside location is very convenient. NOW THE MYSTERY! This port had no power when first tried. I contacted my dealer, who also contacted HOST and neither had ever seen nor heard of a 12vdc power port on the HOST campers. Even though I purchased from the dealer weeks ago, they were stymied. I sent a photo (attached) and they were still stymied. After a week of correspondence with HOST, they are all still stymied and the official response from HOST is that is not a feature of their product. Wow, maybe I don’t have a new host Mammoth! Can all you HOST owners out there check to see if you have a power port in the Generator Bay? I found that it is connected to the Fuse Box location marked Dinnette / Bay; which was not functioning as received. Since replacing the fuse, I now have a working Dinette light and also a working Power Port.
