    Using Mobile Power unit as an EHU Earth question.

    Hi, I have a mobile camping power unit (4 sockets, rcd and mcb in one). I was thinking of repurposing it as an EHU. The thinking seems to be that it should be earthed to the body. So my question to the fine folk of the forum is, if the power unit is close and wired to a charger which is...

    EHU and charging - I've read the threads and need advice

    Hi all, My van has a leisure battery fed by the vans' normal charging system, with the switch to prevent overcharging etc. The problem is, in the winter with all the lights on and heater going, after a day, I need to start the van up and recharge the leisure battery as the EHU on sites merely...

    E-Grill in T6.1

    Anyone tried to fit an E-grill to a T6.1? I purchased a new gloss black grill and the E-grill kit but have found it way harder to fit than the you tube video suggested (although the video is for a T6, so expected it to be a little different. The biggest issue is getting the Exgrill to fit into...

    Electric hookup charger Rating Question

    Hi. I’m looking at a charger for when I’m on EHU. I’m looking charging a200ah lithium battery and originally thought about the blue smart ip22 12/30 charger Am I right in thinking the 30A would trip the EHU as they are only generally rated for 10/16A load? Would be it better to use a 12/10...

    Electric hook-up [point] not working [Check MCB!]

    Away for 5 nights and the electric hookup isn’t working at the campsite. I shorted the dashboard cigarette socket a few days ago and blew the 15 amp fuse. I’ve replaced that and the cigarette socket is now working but my electric hookup isn’t working - could the short have affected the rest of...

    Internal 3-pin plugs - when should these work?

    I have a T6 semi converted. I have two 12v 6amp points at the rear of the passenger seats base. They both work fine. I have two corresponding 3 point plug sockets on the base of the drivers seat - they however do not seem to be working. I’m new to the camper scene - will the plugs only work if...

    EHU tripping house electrics.

    Hi. First time I've tried charging van on EHU in a while. But it trips the house RCD almost immediately. To be thorough, I've tried three different houses, and two different cables, and it still trips. So it must be something on the van end. The socket is under the rear bumper. Anyone any...

    Main battery isolation switch

    My main battery also goes flat if I leave the van for about 10 days. I read that locking the van mechanically rather than electronically will disable a couple of the security scanning programs which must reduce the drain but I also wonder if I should simply fit a battery isloation switch and...

    Charging an electric van off hook up

    Hi all - I'm seriously considering an electric van due in part to the company tax rules (next to no BIK so doesn't matter how much personal use). At first I thought an electric camper was a terrible idea, but when I thought about it, if not small day trips then I generally use a campsite as a...

    Do you have EHU under your bonnet?

    I do. I was always a bit worried that the cable would somehow get trapped somewhere when closing the bonnet, more so if Mrs T6Jay plugs in as she's not as mechanically sympathetic as me. So I've designed and printed this; It fits into the existing hole in the T6.1 plastic moulding, no holes...
