    External 240 hook up options?

    So we’ve decided that we want to get a 240v hook up into the van so when we go camping we can set up the babies steriliser etc inside the van. Having never dabble in electrics etc I’m wondering what would be cheapest option to do this?

In the top of the CU live is on left, neutral on right. Am I going crazy or isnt it usually the other way around? Does it even matter in a single...

    Plugged In Or Die?

    With the state of the world as it is at the moment, the van isn't going to get much use. So just wondered what's best for the leisure battery? To... a) Leave the van on EHU from the house? b) Just leave it to run flat (I think this is not good?) c) EHU every week or so to fully charge, then...
