could anyone help me with this please?
Is it ok to ground the leisure battery via a busbar which is grounded to the chassis?
So i have a 16mm from the chassis to the neg busbar then a 16mm from the busbar to the neg of the leisure battery?
Is this ok or would i be better with a 16mm...
Does anyone have a diagram of where the negative terminals are on a T6 please?
Would be very handy for my planning!
I am thinking that I can connect my circuits back to a negative terminal, rather than run them back to a fuse box / battery negative?
Also, is it worth using...
When I got my T5.1, it was already insulated and carpeted around the body. I know there are factory fitted earthing points at various points around the van (I used the one under the drivers seat for my main link for the split charge relay). But I'm struggling to know where any other may be. I...
I'm about to install a Victron Orion DC DC charger to replace my Sterling unit. The leisure battery is situated in the units next to the drivers side rear wheel arch and is earthed back to the main starter battery up front. If there are any interim earth points behind the units they're invisible...
I've earthed my consumer to the earthing point under my passenger seat. Someone told me I shouldn't earth the 240v to the van as if there was a fault it would fry my 12v system in the van. Instead I should rely on the red and the earthing back yo the who in the campsite.
Good idea or...
I’m getting close to installing all my leisure electrics, which is mostly Victron based.
The two 130 Ah valence lithium batteries will be housed in the kitchen furniture, near the rear wheel arch (just in front to be precise).
All of the kit will connect to a hefty negative bus bar that has the...
Trying to hardwire my Blackvue battery that is under passenger seat.
I got positive supply from fuse box. And found a suitable earthing point on the seat base.
It has continuity to earth. i.e I am find it with a multi meter in any metal part.
But I am not getting a power feed due to no 12...

With the van sat idle for a while I thought I would give the main starter battery a top up.
So I've connected a CTEK MXS 3.8 battery charger. Black clip to chassis, Red clip to Positive battery terminal.
With the Battery still connected to the van, Battery type - Varta AGM 7PO 915 105 A ; 12V...
I have just bought a 2015 transporter shuttle LWB. it looks like it has been fitted with an alarm, and an aftermarket stereo. There seems to be a problem with the interior lights, as when you open the doors the rear light all got out and only the front above the mirror are on. The...
My van is a completely off grid T6. I have solar, Lithium battery and a 2kw Victron inverter. I don’t have a mains hookup, don’t need it.
Question is what do I do with the earth from the Victron inverter? I guess nothing, as I’m not hooked up to the grid so it is now redundant?
Any advice much...
Battery Charging - Main Battery Earth Point -
so weve all be told NOT to bridge out the battery monitor on the neg side of the battery when charging it.
This is so the ECM can correctly gauge the SOC (state of charge) of the starter battery by monitoring the current flow in and out of the...
