    My Taco comes equipped with a power outlet in the cargo bed. Does anyone know if it's safe to plug in an extension cord and connect several devices? I'm a multimedia/photography student, and it would be awesome if I could bring my truck to remote locations and be able to supply power for video productions and photo shoots.

    Thanks!

    I don't know why not... as long as you don't overload it. The strip itself shouldn't cause a problem.

    It is fine as long as your total power consumption is less than 400W if parked or 100W if moving.
