Hi all. Just starting out on a day van/part time camper journey. Have built some prototypes of removable bed/bench set up for my T6 Shuttle. Looking at getting a leisure battery fitted and possibly a solar panel on the roof. I’m no electrician so hoping for any recommendations for someone local...
Trying out all my newly installed (not by me) sockets today and one of the 12v seems faulty. Tried a plug in cigarette style usb adaptor with a small led light and it made a strange pop noise, no illumination. As this was a cheapo adaptor, tried a Tomtom spare and same thing happened.
After reading loads of amazingly informative threads on this forum, I thought I'd start my own thread. (Largely inspired by @Dellmassive 's really blooming useful and informative "How I done It!" thread.)
Basically, I haven't "done it" and simply intend on "doing it"!
I thought it would be...
I was sitting on idle for about 15 minutes last week and suddenly the wipers did two sweeps of the screen. My Cali does have rain sensor but the stalk was set to the off poisition,
I confirmed it by moving the stalk to the maximum setting and sure enough, the wipers went at...
I've had a read through and a search for any similar topics, so I'm sorry if this really has been posted 100 times.
This conversion will be for weekend use, the occasional week trip and maybe a festival or two.
We need usb ports, lights - nothing too crazy like heating etc.
So I'm thinking...
Hope alls swell(tering) for everyone :)

I have been spending time at educating myself as to how a dsg works. Something i find a little vague in other parts of the WWW is to do with how the electrical system may impact the working of the gear slector/mechatronic...
Hi everyone! My first post as I need some of your expertise! Technically I own a T5.1 (don’t evict me!) but I am in the process of doing a T6.1 conversion and full respray of our 2014 LWB highline. I did read about body coded parts? But I really need some help with electrical stuff. Ideally I...

Hello, has anyone know a supplier or have a supply of either scotchlok or Posi taps that I can use to wire in some led bumper reflectors into the tail lamp looms?
I can't seem to find a local electrician or supplier that has the scotchlok with the female seals.
I'm trying to understand the pros/ cons of fitting the leisure battery and associated paraphernalia under the drivers seat vs a bespoke locker at the rear of my LWB.
Driver seat pros;
short cable run from starter battery
can be a neat solution
put a socket directly on the rear of the seat base...
Am going with a lithium setup and inverter on my install and was considering on having a switch that allows me to swap between mains and the lithium/invertor setup on the standard 3pin plugs as and when needed. Has anyone else done this?
Many thanks all.
Help – voltage measurements when towing a trailer/caravan requested.
When towing, what’s the voltage at your cigarette lighter socket (in the lower one in the dash)?
No fancy instruments are needed, just any gadget will do.
The following background data is appreciated:
Hi guys decided i want to self convert most of my T6 myself.
Currently doing sound deadening and insulation then i want to ply and carpet.
I will then want to get a leisure battery with a split charge relay. Is there any guides or wiring diagrams of how to hook up a basic set up?
Is it best to do the electrics before I carpet and lay the altro flooring?
I was hoping to do the carpeting first but I was just speaking to a local converter and he said to do the electrics either before or at the same time.
My original plan was to put down the 12mm floor then lay the altro...
Can anyone recommend a supplier of a full split charge / eleccie hookup kit including power monitor, switches, cables, sockets etc?
I'm looking at the CTEK D250 kit at the mo from Rayne Automotive as I've seen a few recommendations elsewhere. Also, do I need the Smartpass 120 to go...
Hi, I have recently installed a CBE PC210 kit in my campervan, however the system won't turn on (when I press the on button it triggers a relay and makes a sort of buzzing noise) I originally had this problem when I first installed the system but I fixed it by wigging the 16 core controller...
Happy new year all!
I have a question regarding wiring which I hope someone can answer; I’d like to run a cable under the floor from the 12v leisure battery on one side to a kind of electrical hub/switch box(?) on the other side.
The idea being I can wire any appliances (water pump for...
I am new to the forum and to the Transporter range! I have been doing a fair bit of reading and need a little advice. In 3 weeks time I will be putting the van in the garage and starting stage 1 of a 3 year, 3 stage process:
Stage 1 - Insulation, lining and electrics (fitted inside an...
is fitting a tow bar a relatively easy task? The van is pretty much stripped already so I figured now would be a good time.
As with everything I would like to save money and do it myself, I'm an electrical engineer but where I get tripped up is when I'm working with modules and confusing wiring...
