Question Converting power outlet to battery instead of ignition

I found this note in the manual.

NOTE: The USB outlet in the bottom of the instrument panel can be switched from “ignition” only to constant “battery” powered all the time. See an authorized dealer
for details.

I'd like the outlet to be battery controlled instead of igniton (for a dashcam). Longshot, does anyone know what this note actually means and know what is needed to convert an outlet?

You will need to reposition one of the fuses under the hood. I don't remember the fuse number, it is closer to the bottom of the panel. The legend on the inner side of the fuse box cover has the info.

F95 is the fuse

Look in the fuse block under the hood and move fuse F95 from the F95A to F95B position. Takes ten minutes max. It one of the first changes I made to the van.

among others:
1975 Plymouth Valiant
1989 Plymouth Voyager
2005 Chrysler T&C

Thank you for asking that! And thank you for answering that. I was missing that feature that I had in previous Grand Caravan.

Thanks everyone! Shifted the fuse to the new location and all is good to go.
