"Collyn Rivers has done it again! - if you need to know anything about motorhome electrics, then this book is for you...Collyn must be, without doubt, the foremost authority in Australia on this subject."The Wanderer (Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia Ltd) Caravan & Motorhome Electrics has been primarily written for owners and builders and bridges the gap between the auto-electrical and alternative energy disciplines.It explains basic electrics, an overview of batteries, lighting, appliances, fridges, water pumps, air-conditioning, circuit breakers, inverters, fuses and solar systems among a wealth of other information. It explains the energy draw of typical RV items, defines voltages and the installation of 12 and 24 volt wiring, charging, generators, energy monitoring, and answers many frequently asked questions.The content for both conventional and fifth wheel 'vans has been expanded. Both books are brilliantly illustrated with technical drawings and sharp colour photographs. They are written in clear English and it is difficult to find any aspect not fully explained.Peter Poat.

Reviewed in Australia on 18 June 2021
I bought this guide for myself to assist me with my new caravan. I found it so good that I have recommended it to several other caravan owner mates and gave it to my son, who has just purchased a camper trailer. I will now buy another copy for myself. It is simply indispensable!

Great for theory and background, less useful for practical projectsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 January 2021
Focussed on Australia and New Zealand, good background and theory book but not the complete guide it claims to be if your need is a practical manual for projects on your caravan or motor home.
