Play • 40 min

Are you ready to power up your camper van adventures? I am super excited to be sharing a really simple solution to campervan electrical systems, something that stymies lots of DIY van builders.

Join us for a chat with  Gregory Keith, founder of Camper Van HQ and author of the Sprinter RV Conversion Source Book. We shine a light on the innovative EcoFlow Power Kit - a game changer that's redefining the DIY van life experience.

Ever wondered about the common pitfalls of wiring a van system? We've got you covered. Gregory and I dissect the dangers of improper cable fusing, crimping, and the risk of incorrectly vented propane appliances – illuminating the potential hazards that come with van conversion. We also put the spotlight on different battery sizes, discussing the pros and cons of the five-kilowatt battery and four lithium batteries, and the importance of keeping lithium batteries warm.

We don't just stop at identifying potential issues, we provide solutions. Discover how the EcoFlow Power Kit simplifies the process of installing an electrical system in your van. Learn about its power hub which consolidates five components into one compact box and how it comes with pre-provided cabling, reducing the need for a multitude of other components. Gregory shares valuable insights on how to select the right battery system for your van and how to calculate your power needs. Let's power your camper van adventures together.
