    PMS won’t allow fridge to run whilst driving

    Hi I have a T5 campervan and the current power management system won't allow me to have my fridge runing while im driving. As you can imagine, this is massively inconvenient.

    Has Anyone Used A Non-sargent Control Panel??

    Not much to add really. I quite like a control panel with a built in USB and plug sockets (it's smaller looking and less intrusive) but have only ever known people to use Sargent control panels with their conversions. Has anyone used a different one and had no issues?? I know what a Sargent...

    PMS 3h - Power Management System

    Hi Everyone, i have the above in my T6 with a split charger relay but to be honest i'm not 100% sure how it works. I understand that if the "battery selector" rocker switch is set to "car" then the 12v power for the lights etc.. will come from the car battery. When the same switch is in the...

    Has any one fitted a CBE PC380 system. I'd like to fit one in my camper conversation. Really only because they look nice and slick but wondered if there was any known problems with them.
