The RCA outputs are all 12v power, not dew heater outputs.  I'll be honest and say I'm not sure about the voltage of the focus motor output,but I think it is 9 volts. It successfully drives a Skywatcher focus motors Meade zero image shift focuser.  I can check the voltage this evening.

Yes I could ship to France. Cost would be £11.00.
