    The 12 Volt Doctor's Practical Handbook: For the Boat's Electric System

    Not a bad book if you are fitting out a van, a boat or if you are incorporating 12v into your home

    Same here. Ignorance is no defense when tinkering with electricery and traveler vehicles.
    even a gypsy caravan is too much settling down.

    Even if you muck about with electrickery quite a bit, as I do, a reference is often useful!

    That's great thanks, all this sparky stuff makes about as much sense to me as mathematics (ie none).

    I now have a 24v vehicle, should I run a separate 12v system or try to incorporate the two?

    Now look, this is a 12 volt book, not a 24 volt!

    Personally I'd run everything on 24 volt and save a lot of mucking about.

    Would a 12v kettle work on a 24v system or would it just melt ?
    Then there's loads of other things...

    . Trucks are all 24 volt so you can get pretty much anything you want in 24 volt.

    On reading the first few pages, the writer knows his stuff, and explains it well.
