    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.

    Rcd Required For Inverter?

    Hi All, 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? Many thanks, Matt
