    There is a lot of information on the internet about camper conversion insulation. I'm sure you'll agree there are lots of ways to do this. They all get the same results. I opted for spray foam insulation installed by professionals because of the cost benefits. I've added a very short video...

    Does anyone (electrician) know how to wire this correctly.

    I've just found this on the 12volt planet, this is for my consumer unit. This makes sense, if you look at my initial picture my bus bar/links are fitted at the top, if I fit them to the bottom then everything will be as everyone advises. If this is right I wonder how my links were fitted...

    Does anyone (electrician) know how to wire this correctly.

    Thanks David, no diagram, but my electrician tells me the live/N can go into MCB's and out of RCD. He says it can also be wired the other way, into RCD and out of MCB's

    Does anyone (electrician) know how to wire this correctly.

    Good answer, but the reason I asked was because the two electricians I asked offered different answers. I wanted someone from the leisure industry (electrician) to supply a conclusive answer.

    Please advise me, insurance advice and build is under way.

    When I bought the van (Sprinter) last year I found it difficult to get insurance because it was registered as a mini bus (because it was), I went with A Plan,(£300). This year, the build is well underway and it's registered as van with side windows. Adrian Flux now quote £230. Which is the...

    So I've eventually bought a van and need advice, Aircon Webasto, Sprinter,battery gaurd.

    I've just been on this journey. The advice dvla gave over the phone was be to change both the taxation class to PLG and body type to "van with side windows" on V5. After the initial enquiry Dvla did all this via email and photos. I removed all my seats, took pictures of an empty van. I sent...

    So my floor has been stuck down, what should I do.

    I was going to remove and insulate the floor of my Sprinter before I get the rest spray foamed. Only problem is the the van was mini bus and the floor is bonded down. The floor and covering is in good condition but It's going to be a nightmare to remove. Can I just insulate and stick a new...
