Kit Overview

We created this kit to give you a great setup for those that tend to do more wild or off-grid camping, when you wouldn't necessarily have a hook up point.

It'll provide both on-grid mains when plugged in, and off-grid mains via an inverter. 

A summary of the kit is below -

  • 3000W (3kW) inverter charger
  • Hook up consumer unit
  • Mains consumer unit
  • Supported battery technology - Lead acid, GEL, AGM, and Calcium
  • Battery charging current - 18A / 36A / 54A / 72A / 90A
  • Parallel battery kit (Optional)
  • All cabling and connections pre terminated for easy installation

What's in the kit?

Inverter Charger

This is the heart of the kit. A powerful 3000W low frequency inverter with a built in battery charger. It has the ability to provide 240V mains anywhere. You can still plug into a hook up to get it as well, but when you're off grid the inverter will kick into life and provide mains power in your camper van.

Details

  • Continuous power - 3000W (3kW)
  • Surge power - 9000W (9kW)
  • DC Input voltage - 12V
  • AC Input voltage - 240V
  • AC output voltage - 240V
  • Supported battery technology - Lead acid, GEL, AGM. and Calcium
  • Battery charging current - 18A / 36A / 54A / 72A / 90A
  • Wave form - Pure sine wave with bypass mode to sync to input
  • Efficiency - Line mode >95% / Battery mode >88%
  • Power saver mode trigger - Load is greater than 25W
  • 5M remote control
  • MEGA fuse holder
  • 350A MEGA fuse
  • 600A 12V battery isolator

Cabling Lengths & Protection

  • Positive cable - 70mm2 red hi-flex battery cable - 1.5M
  • Negative cable - 70mm2 black hi-flex battery cable - 1.5M

    Parallel battery kit (Optional)

    As this kit requires a large amount of power, you may need to have a set of batteries in parallel rather than one single large battery. This optional kit will give you all you need to wire them together.

    Details

    • 2 X positive and negative leisure battery terminals

    Cabling Lengths

    • Positive cable - 70mm2 red hi-flex battery cable - 1M
    • Negative cable - 70mm2 black hi-flex battery cable - 1M

    240V Mains Equipment - Inverter Input

    This is a small mains consumer unit that runs from the surface mount 16A hook up point on the outside of your van and feeds the input of the inverter. This protects the inverter from any power surges and overloads and is the first point of safety, providing an earth to both the inverter body and the chassis of your camper van.

    Details

    • 5 way plastic consumer unit
    • 30mA 63A double pole RCD
    • 16A double pole MCB
    • Neutral 63A bus bar
    • Surface mounted 16A magnetic hook up point (Available in black or white)
    • Relevant electrical safety stickers

    Cabling Lengths

    • Hook up input - 2.5mm2 three core flex - 2M
    • Inverter input - 2.5mm2 three core flex - 2M
    • Inverter earth (Terminated with ring terminal) - 6mm2 tri rated flex - 2M
    • Vehicle earth (Terminated with ring terminal) 6mm2 tri rated flex - 2M

    240V Mains Equipment - Inverter Output

    This is the central mains consumer unit for the camper van. This takes the output from the inverter/hook up and feeds the power via double pole RCD's and MCB's to the mains sockets and switches. 

    Details

    • 12 way plastic consumer unit
    • 30mA 63A double pole RCD
    • 2 X 10A double pole MCB's
    • 6A double pole MCB
    • Neutral 63A bus bar
    • 2 X 13A UK double sockets with built in twin USB ports
    • 20A double pole switch for hard wiring mains appliances such as a fridge or a water heater (This can be swapped for a single socket if preferred)
    • 2 X double surface mount back boxes
    • Single surface mount back box
    • Relevant electrical safety stickers

    Cabling Lengths

    • Inverter output - 2.5mm2 three core flex - 2M
    • Vehicle earth (Terminated with ring terminal) 6mm2 tri rated flex - 2M
    • Sockets & Switches - 2.5mm2 three core flex - 3M each

    The mains components in this kit conform to British safety standard BS 7671:2018. This is due to the sockets and switches being double pole as well as the consumer unit containing double pole RCDs and MCBs. When using your camper in the EU, they tend to use a system where the natural is not earthed, having double pole equipment ensures a higher level of safety. The outlets are also individually protected by their own MCBs as per regulations.

    Build Information

    We'll be in touch after your purchase to gather the cable lengths you need for your camper van build. Each cable on the main image will be numbered and we'll ask you to provide the required length for each of them in a table we'll provide (apart from some that are a set length due to safety reasons, for example, fusing close to a source of power).

    Please pay attention to the overall length of cables offered in the product description. If your custom lengths are longer than offered, this will occur additional charges.

    Please note any kits customized to a customer specification will fall under our custom item refund policy and will be non refundable so please ensure you know what you are buying before committing to purchase.

    We recommend all wiring and installation be carried out by a qualified professional. Disconnect all AC and DC power sources to prevent accidental shock. It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure compliance with all the applicable installation codes, regulations, and to ensure the equipment is fitted correctly.

    The lead time on the build is currently 14 days.

    Battery Information

    We get asked this question a lot. What type and size of leisure battery should I use?

    It's a valid question, but for this kit, you'll need a little more power than the norm.

    For leisure battery technology we would normally recommend AGM or Absorbent Glass Mat batteries.

    In regards to capacity, for this 3KW kit the minimum we would recommend would be a battery, or battery bank with a 300Ah capacity. You'll probably find creating this from one or two batteries in parallel cheaper than buying one large battery.

    Custom Kits

    We know one size doesn't necessarily fit all, but we needed to draw the line somewhere in our offering. If you need something a bit different or perhaps an adaptation of this camper van electrical kit, please email your requirements to hello@wiredcampers.co.uk.
