It's on the left hand side just above the compartment with the jack in it. There's a little hinged cover on with DC12V on it.

homer, the 12V connection in the cargo area is only on later models, I think from 2000 or 2001+. The 98 does not have one.

I re-wired my connection, and wired it directly to my 2nd battery, making the existing cable obsolete. (you can't run a fridge using the small dia cable)

You can buy a socket, and install it in the panel close to the tool and jack compartment, you can run your own cable (use 6mm) inside the side panels, and connect via an in-line fuse close to the battery. It is very handy and cheap.

AS SAAVAS SAID THAT IS WHERE IT IS HOWEVER JUST BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ARE RUNNING OF IT. I WAS GOING TO RUN AN EVAKOOL F/F OFF MINE AND OUR LOCAL SPARKY INFORMED ME THAT THE WIREING WOULD NOT BE UP TO THE JOB. WHEN WE HAD A LOOK AT IT, IT WASN'T EVEN EARTHED.YOU NEED AT LEAST A 6mm WIRE STRAIGHT FROM THE BATTERY ( AS AN OLD MEMBER TOLD ME (OZI) AND ONCE WE DID THIS THE FRIDGE HASN'T MISSED A BEAT. YOU ALSO NEED A HEAVY DUTY POINT TO RUN THE FRIDGE, NOT THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER TYPE. IF ALL YOU ARE USING IT FOR IS A LIGHT, GO FOR IT AS IS.

I was a little concerned about the ability of the existing plug to run a fridge, but mine ran a 40L Engel with absolutely no problems at all.

I will however, be re-wiring it once i have an auxillary battery installed.
