Stop Struggling with Your Electrical Setup

You’re probably muddling through learning about electrics for your camper conversion, but find it complex, technical and even overwhelming. You don’t need a multitude of opinions and other camper’s designs. All you need is a solid understanding you can apply to your specific needs.

What Exactly Will You Learn?

A well-informed campervan electrical system will support your lifestyle and meet your expectations. This book will guide you step-by-step through every aspect of the system to design your setup and get it working for you.

  • What major components an electrical system needs.
  • Learn about circuits, including wiring, fuses, busbars and breakers.
  • Why your electrical usage is fundamental to your design.
  • How to calculate how much electricity you will use.
  • Understand different battery technologies.
  • How to recharge batteries while driving, from solar panels, mains supply & generators.
  • How to size every component from batteries to solar panels, fuses to wire gauges.
  • How and why you may need to transform AC to DC and vice versa.
  • How to choose the best battery type for you.
  • How to make sure your electrical system is SAFE.
  • How to install electrical components.

Why Trust Me?

Because this approach is tried and tested, and has stood the test of time.

Follow the guidance in this book and undertake each exercise methodically. The outcome will be a safe campervan electrical design that will meet your needs.

When I implemented this strategy in my campervan conversion in 2017, the results were bob on!

I’ve since lived in my campervan full-time with Angela. After a few tweaks, we can live off-grid indefinitely, weather conditions permitting. 

My expectations are crystal clear. I know when I can’t generate enough power from solar to meet my daily needs. I have an optimum battery size for our lifestyle and region of travel. I have enough backup charging sources to ensure I never run out of electricity.

Follow this approach, and your campervan electrics will stand the test of time too.
