Caravan & Motorhome Electrics is the totally rewritten successor to the original globally selling Motorhome Electrics. The book’s content now also covers every aspect of designing, installing and fault finding of the electrics in fifth wheel and conventional caravans, camper trailers and motorhomes.

This eBook explains how things work and what they do (not what vendors claim they do). It shows how to dramatically improve battery charging performance, successfully install solar and reduce energy draw of electric (especially) three-way fridges.

Essentially it provides solutions proven to work, not suggestions that may work.

The author shows how the ongoing move to fully voltage-controlled alternators necessitates dc-dc alternator charging. It covers the solutions in depth: generators, solar and the latest development - fuel cells.

As with all Collyn’s books, the content is thoroughly researched, technically accurate, yet in plain English, plus explanatory illustrations, many of which are of the author’s own vehicles.
