I’m currently (haha) researching electrics its a minefield, I don’t want to go down the solar route ha I live in the Uk.
As I understand this there is a battery to run/start the van and then there is a “house” battery to run all the appliances in the van and this can be charged with the alternator when driving yes?
I plan to have a couple(?) of deep cycle batteries to run all my “in house” appliances.
These would be as follows;
laptop/ computer /screen (large for my editing)
chargers for phones etc
not sure yet about a fridge I’m looking into this . .
Don’t need a water pump as I’m going to use a portable shower and heat the water I need on the stove and I’m using a marine pump in the sink to conserve water usage
I’ve heard inverters are not a good idea and 12v really uses a lot of power so is there a happy medium out there I’m not aware of?
Do I need an inverter to run all the 3-way house type plugs?
currently looking on youtube but its all gobbledygook at the moment
