Lots of wires, lots of gadgets and a bit of variation in my ideas of what we want and need and where I’m going to put it all. I also want the best state of the art kit, so life will be easier. The disadvantage……if it goes wrong!
I’m keen to keep all the background stuff such as the mains circuit breakers, fuse box, battery charger, battery etc… out of the way. Having moved the twin seat behind the drivers seat ad replaced it with a single seat so we can walk through, the twin seat box is an ideal place to put everything safe and out of sight.
As you can see in the picture above the mains circuit breaker, main electronic controller for all electrical components are mounted on the inside. Out of sight in the near box the battery charger is mounted opposite.
In the far side the battery, solar controller and split charger are housed. The electronic control panel (right with the fuses) is connected to a digital controller for the CBE 210 kit. At first it’s a bit daunting, but with a bit of patience it is quite simple by following the instructions.
So cabling for cabin lights, awning lights, reading lamps, all led, water heater, central heating, fridge, cooker, gas level meter, fresh and grey water meters, solar panels and meters, mains cabling and socket on the outside for hook up it looked a bit like spaghetti.
All the on show control will be on the top section of the cab/van bulkhead that I’m leaving in. This will be boxed in with the same furniture panel I’m using for the kitchen and bed facias. The shower room will be a contrasting colour.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
