On my 2005 48' Viking there are one of these female 24v electrical connections in each corner of the cockpit. A few questions:

I know Bals Cee Norm is a German company and I found their website, but does anyone know where to order these parts in the US? I need to buy 2 or 3 of the male connectors for these outlets to wire to my electric reels.

Right now these outlets are rigged for 24v, however, I want to rewire them for 12v to use with my electric reels. I think I can just swap the wires on the back of my electrical panel (where these outlets are switched with a breaker) from the 24v section to the 12v section. Is there any reason I can't use these same connections even though they are rated for 24v? I imagine it should be ok?

Any advice welcomed. Thank you.

The issue isn't with the connectors, it is if the wire from there to the panel is big enough to carry the current demanded by your reels at 12 volts. Interesting use of a European AC outlet, BTW, but nothing wrong with it that I can see.
