240v Electrics Idea
The 240v electrics are quite simple on this van, as they aren’t really needed. But, we want it just to operate a 240v battery charger and a single 240v socket just for a single 1/2kw electric heater in the winter. So nothing major.
Now simply, you need cable, plugs, sockets, and a consumer unit. Most campervan consumer units have single pole MCBs – but I want dual pole. Yes, an overkill, but yes recommended especially if you use dodgy feeds!
- PO104 consumer unit (25A RCD + 10A+6A dual pole MCBs) – ebay for £40 new.
- 16A arctic cable
- 16A surface mount socket (similar to HERE) . So the hookup socket will be hidden underneath the van out of sight as we don’t really use it that often.
There will be a single 13A socket off the 10A MCB for the heater (8A), and a single socket (6A) for the charger.
The consumer unit will be earthed to the van chassis.
