Looking for a 12volt power meter

I know the stereo guys have them, I have seen them. Where can I get one? I want it to use as a remote meter to view the remaining juice on my pop up's battery. I have seen them on eBay but I prefer a local source over internet if possible. Thanks

I did a search on camping worlds site (15 minutes from me) but they do not have anything for 12volt, just a 120 meter.

you could use one of these and wire in a 12 volt outlet.

Yeah, but I do not have a socket on the camper. I want to mount it right on my counter top for a permanent install.

if you want an ammeter, then expect to pay big dollars for it to be digital:
