Im sure someone will be along to confirm or deny this, but I thought for safety reasons the battery or batteries were nowadays supposed to be kept seperate from the accomodation, and vented.

The Marine 1-2- both switches are very much out of favour these days, and independent individual switches are the preferred route. Some of the 1-2-both switches are break before make, some are make before break, and a lot are really poor quality, with issues causing 12V fires

I also moved the inverter out of the wardrobe and secured it to the cupboard where the batteries were originally fitted.




Jobs list is now in single figures...

Not over impressed with the cable security on the plug in the inverter outlet!

Well done :)

You deserve a cuppa, or maybe a shandy or two ;)

You are absolutely right.
Batteries should be installed in a battery compartment which is sealed from the inside of the van and the batteries vented to the exterior of the van by means of a tube of minimum 10mm I/d from the top of each battery.
If the compartment is inside the van it should have an air sealed lid and the compartment vented to the exterior of the van.
The minimum low level vent size is 80mm2 and the minimum high level vent is 80mm2

The batteries should also be placed on a tray to catch any electrolyte and the walls and floor of the compartment should be of corrosion resistant material, or treated with anti corrosion paint.
