Caravan & Motorhome Electrics is bought by buyers, owners, designers, builders of camper trailers, caravans, campervans and motorhomes. It also bridges the gap between auto-electrical and alternative energy. In essence Caravan & Motorhome Electrics shows how to design affordable systems that really do work, how to install them, and how to identify and fix anything that does not work as it should (e.g. battery charging, fridges, solar etc). RV owners, builders and electricians world-wide have bought the progressively updated versions of this book since it was first written in 2002. Many buyers also purchase our associated Solar That Really Works
