Welcome to Campervan-Motorhome-Electrics
We have the camper van bug!
If you’ve never owned a camper you won’t understand the sentiment behind that statement. If you have, or still own a camper van, you’ll know exactly what we mean! Obviously, to buy a professionally converted camper van can be very expensive, especially when times are hard. So we're here to help you convert your own. Everybody’s preferences and requirements will be different, and how far to go with the specification is an individual choice. This Web site is not about building an all singing, all dancing motor home with a state of the art kitchen, luxury bathroom etc. - it’s about the basics - a panel van converted into a camper van with enough equipment to spend some comfortable, happy holidays and days out. If you’re a beginner our advice would be not to set your sights to high at the outset - more equipment can always be added at a later date as you gain confidence and experience.
Camper van/Motor home 12 volt electrics
If you do a lot of 'wild' camping where no mains hook-up is available then it's your 12 volt electrical system you should be concentrating on. First and foremost your going to need a good quality leisure battery (or batteries depending on your 12v power consumption) and to work out your power consumption in amps to decide the ampere hour (Ah) rating of leisure battery/batteries required.
Camper van/Motor home mains hook-up 230V electrics
If you prefer to have all your home comforts available to you while your away (hair dryer/straighteners, electric fan heater etc.) you will need to have mains hook-up facility installed in your campervan or motor home. If your installing a mains system from scratch you'll need a mains hook-up installation kit which comes complete with all the necessary wiring, cables, connectors, RCD, MCB's, plug sockets and a test button to make sure everything is working correctly.
