DC Electrical work

12 or 24-volt electrical wiring

The RV wiring system can be complex because it combines 12-volt or sometimes 24-volt DC with a 240 AC supply powered by a 48-volt solar system. These appliances are connected to the 12, 240 volt, gas, and water. So, it helps to have a Technician who understands the wiring systems of an RV and the appliances connected to them.

Our experienced technicians can help with diagnosing and fixing a wider variety of issues, including:

  • Intermittent faults that only show up under certain circumstances. This could be because the vehicle is in motion sometimes and subject to vibrations.
  • Repairs to the 12 or 24-volt direct current wiring in the living space and the DC wiring in the cab part of the vehicle.
  • Repairs to the AC 240 wiring.
  • Our Technicians are also very familiar with visual and audio wiring systems that relate to a motor home or caravan's TV, satellite, and sound.

It doesn't matter if the vehicle is an American import, European import, or a Kiwi-built unit; we can fix it.

More about 12/24 volt systems

12 or 24 volt electrical wiring (sometimes called auto electrical wiring), in motor-homes and caravans can get quite involved compared with standard auto electrical work. This is due in part, to the vehicle electrical system being partially connected to the living space electrical system.

The RV wiring system can be complex because all sorts of sensitive appliances are connected to the 2 battery banks, such as satellite systems, solar systems, TV's, wifi, pumps, fridge etc. Over the years we have come across some very interesting wiring, done by people who knew enough about wiring to make the connection, but not enough to know what effects their work might have on everything else in the vehicle. The cost in hours of finding the cause of a problem once it is created, can add up. Sometimes it is better to leave things to the Technicians who do it on a daily basis. Our expert Technicians consider the whole system and have a good understanding of the future implications of adding any component.
