In calculating the loads for my new van install, I am a bit perplexed by how inverters are rated. I think I know the correct answer but would appreciate some validation from some more experienced minds.
The inverter I am considering the Victron Phoenix 12/375, a 300W inverter. It is my...
Barring any last minute hiccups we pick up the van on Friday this week:) , pics will be posted here shortly after that.....
Some final pieces of discussion that we would like people’s views on if possible please, all views very welcomed .....

In short, I’m looking to get 240v inverted fitted to the van. I’ll be getting a company to do this, but as I know nothing about these. What equipment do I need? 2nd battery etc?
many ideas of cost completed with fitting
I was wondering if its very bad practice to place the inverter under the driver seat? I don't know if theres room yet. I have a battery, fusebox and ctek 250se.
Or would it be best placed under my passenger seats? I have a double.
Im only looking at a small inverter to run a laptop...

I hope all is well.
I bought a Schneider CA2KN22P7 control relay from RS components to automatically switch between the hookup 230V supply (preferred input) and the 230V inverter supply (secondary input if 230V mains hookup not available)
CA2KN22P7 | Schneider Electric Control Relay 2NO/2NC, 10...
Can anyone tell me what size inverter would be recommended for a 600w coffee machine for my camper.
I’m a coffee addict and would really like a machine in my van, I am currently using the aeropress.
Also would my 100ah battery be able to cope ?
Hi and apologies in advance if this is a bit dumb...
But could do with some friendly help here
I assumed the 3 pin (mains) sockets we have in our new (secondhand) T6 would work either on hook up or on leisure. But seems I'm wrong as they only work on hook up. Is this normal/correct?
I have just spent a couple of hours helping my neighbour try to sort out some blown electrics on his "new to him" motorhome (not a VW).
It looks like a home built setup, with either a mains hook-up connection or a 3.5kW inverter driving the mains sockets in the vehicle. It appears that it is...
I’ve installed a Victron 12/375 inverter that’s connected to a leisure battery and grounded to the chassis. I’ve plugged a tester in and it’s coming up with a Live Neutral reverse, but I can clearly see that they’re the right way around! Any ideas?
I have bought a Leasure Battery, CTEK charger and inventor. I was going to run an extension lead from the inverter, cut of the socket section and instead wire it to a fixed socket. Do I need to fit an RCD between the fixed socket and the plug going into the inverter?
So.... I've got a ring dc/dc b2b charger and a whopping 1500w inverter next to each other under my passenger seat.
I have 50mm2 cables running from the inverter to the batteries. Can I attach the charging cables to these as a common Earth and positive as they are the most direct route for...
Probably a very basic question but forgive my muppetry!
I have an invertor unit connected to a separate 3 pin socket - can i just use an unused small house
TV straight into this socket?
And do I need a super dooper external arial?
