socket plug covers

Postby cruiser1800 » Fri Jan 08, 2016 11:01 pm



My Goldwing trike I bought, has two sockets mounted in the fuel tank cover, between the seat and the fuel tank filler lid. These sockets are for plugging in heated gloves, etc. There is no cover on the sockets to prevent water from getting into the socket, like rain or washing the bike, etc. Does anyone know if somebody makes rubber plugs or covers to prevent moisture from getting into the socket?

Thanks
Rodney

Rodney, as always pictures will probably help someone figure out something that will work.

I knew I would be asked for a picture to help people understand what I am asking about, but in the past, not recent past, it seemed to be a pain in the ass to post a picture, so I try to avoid doing it. I will try and get a picture posted so you can see what exactly I am dealing with, but it isn't a cigarette lighter type socket, it is for the cord that goes to heated gloves, etc.

Thanks
Rodney

I'm pretty sure that I know what you are describing, but I guess like most things, size matters. :D
I'm thinking something like these are what you are looking for.

Rodney, get yourself a free picture holding site like Photobucket and upload you pics there. Copy the URL there beside your pic (in Photobucket use the direct option). Then on your posts click the Img box above your typing and the pics will work fine. Hope that helps.

They are showing and make a lot of difference.
You have something like this and need the black plug cover.
This one is from J&P, but WingStuff carries the kit as well. You could contact either of them (or Gerbing) to see if the plug cover is available just by itself.

That's some site Mike. All from China, but sometimes that's not all bad.
I've been on it for an hour and had to bookmark it for later.

Those are Gerbing ports, and both of my covers have broken off as well. I just left them that way, and it doesn't seem to harm them. I'll replace them at some point, I suppose.
