We have an electrician lined up to check our work but we want to actually do the work ourselves and its a few years since we have done any electrical stuff.
We have purchased a PMS 3H
the wooden box is simply something we have made as a temporary surround to protect it. What I am planning to do is to take the inlet hookup cable to a fused spur and then to the white mains cable of the PMS 3H. There are three AC outputs, one 10A and two 5A ones. I am having a socket ring and I also have a truma water heater with electric facility, I guess it would make sense to use one connector for the sockets and one for the heater. Would you use 5amp for both or the 10amp for one, or would you use all three?
I remember that to wire the sockets you simply take the cable into the relavant holes and then take a new cable out of those holes to the next socket. When you get to the furthest socket you then stop, no need to take the cable back to the PMS 3H?
Then there are the DC outlet sockets. On the back I have a DC output for the pump so the positive cable for the pump will go there. There are also 4 DC -VE connectors so I will then put the pump neg cable there. On the front there is a 10a fuse holder marked pump so I am assuming this will protect the pump and so no further fuses are needed.
Next socket is for DC+ lights so I am assuming that my positive cable for my lighting ring is going there. Light the sockets I assume I simply take the cable to the first light, then out and to the second light. At some point prior to the lights I will put a switch unless the lights I buy all have individual switches. I will then put the neg cable to another of the DC-VE connections.
Then there is two aux sockets and one of these or maybe both will be used for 12volt sockets. I am going to use mainly car cigar lighter style sockets but also put in one of the two pin ones in case its needed. Same system for wiring as the lighting.
Not bothering with a fridge, just a cooler box
Then I have two DC Inputs, car+ and van+. I am assuming I put the positive from my leisure battery to the van one and then the neg to another DC-VE connector. I am not going to use the car battery as I do not want to flatten it.
