Re: Accessory outlets
Are you sure you are using the correct plug on the Gerbing? The BMW outlets use the Powerlet plug not the more common cigarette lighter plug. That would account for seeing power at the plug and not to your jacket.
Did you buy the jacket from a BMW dealer? Someone else may not have known you need the powerlet adapter. As a recommended alternative in the inside pocket of the jacket is a power cord that connects directly to the battery connections and has a plug on the other end for the Gerbing. I use that and just run it out from under the seat.
