A trip to Liverpool to be looked after the lovely Ian and Mandy as I worked on their newly acquired VW T25, Frida. She has had a conversion with a rock and roll bed and a kitchen unit but no leisure battery set-up so Ian asked if I could get them off-grid so they start to enjoy their van for holidays.
Ian and I spoke about installing a new leisure battery in the kitchen pod and charging this via a split charge system and solar set-up. He also wanted some USB points in the van for portable gadgets and the opportunity to enjoy an evening film night and the football when away.
Parked up on the drive for 2 days in Otto, my Westy Sven Hedin, I set about the install and quickly ran into the spaghetti mess that is T25 leisure wiring. I wanted to spend some time sorting this out and making sure their system going forward was neat, safe and functional.
