How Do I Power Lights On My Snack Van

by Suzy
(Glasgow)

I have purchased a snack van where all my equipment runs on gas. But the main light in the van needs a power supply. What is the best way to power this? Do I need to buy an extension lead to connect it to my petrol generator and if so which type of lead do I need to buy. It's not much of a problem just now but when the dark mornings come in I will need my light on. Also there is what looks like a 7 pin connector on the outside of the van. Please help!!

Which car battery do you use or could recommend that I buy? Do you just charge this every night and if so how do you charge it?

Thanks.

Hi, I run mine all on gas apart from lights and I use a large car battery for the lights.

Power The Lights On Catering Unit
by: Brian

Hi Suzy,

If catering unit's electrics are wired correctly you require a 230v 16amp outdoor extension lead, these are available widely from caravan shops or online in 10 metre and 15 metre lengths, they will plug straight in to the blue plug on the generator, the the plug is large on the trailer (about 7.5cms) you have the 32 amp version.

Best,
Brian
