Caravan wiring diagram
Does anyone have a good commercial van detailed wiring diagram they would like to share with me?
I am endeavouring to rewire an old 70's van for the '21st Century' ... or something like that and I would like to model it on a commercial offering.
The sort of thing is the newer vans with most things running on 12v and set up for free camping with on board battery, inverter battery chargers and 12/240 inverters, maybe solar panels etc.
There'd be no doubt some clever circuit design, as well as attention to electrical safety and the use of sound industry tested components.
Don't know how detailed you need but here is one with solar and 240V input

I set up a van sat system for a bloke up here. Here's what he told me he had, and I know to work well. He has gas hot water, a gas fridge and a gas mini-oven and cooktop. He has a Honda (I think?) Genny, uses about a cup of unleaded for over an hour of telly, sat TV, DVD, and microwave. He has a series of 4 deep cycle batteries. They are charged by a few solar panels, that chuck out about 8 amps when it is sunny and hot. When they are cool, they chuck out up to 10 amps, apparently. Doing this, he is self-sufficient, nearly. And, witht he gas fridge going all the time, a 9kg gas bottle lasts him 3 or 4 weeks with nightly use of the cooker and hot water.
