Quick Question

Ok, so I am going to pick up my bus this weekend. I plan on bringing my GPS (yes I need it lol). No bus I have looked at has a 12v power outlet. Is there anywhere up front I can tap into 12v easily.
It's a 2002 bluebird all American rear engine.
The idea is to use one of those multi port 12v/USB things. I would wire in a 5-10 amp breaker, possibly use alligator clips.

I had to "install" one when I brought our bus home. There should be distribution panel somewhere front that you can tap off of. I wasn't about to drive from Florida to WV without my XM and cell phone charger. Lol I'm spoiled.
