Hi everyone, I'm a newbie, so please be gentle😊.
I recently bought my first van, an old Renault Trafic T1100 Leisuredrive Relax. Had some great nights away already, but have a problem with the electrical system. 240v is fine. However the 12v system has been subject to some DIY repairs in the past ie bypassed with a wire from under the dash to a bank of cigarette lighter sockets. The control unit in the van that has can/van switch, water pump etc is dead.
I would like to get this repaired and back to original working order, but not electrically minded myself. So, looking for advice on where to go to get it fixed, I'm in south
Cumbria and would prefer somewhere within an hour or so drive.
Any help would be much appreciated.

We have used rscampervans at Burneside near Kendal. They have carried out work on our van that was high quality and the right price. Usual disclaimer. No connection, I`m only a happy customer.
Have a look at

Any MCEA engineer should be able to do it, most are mobile.
A vehicle of that vintage Zig units were the chosen thing. If the unit is naff, enough used ones kicking about in breakers now that a transplant shouldn't cost a limb

Thanks for the advice everyone, at least I know what to start looking for now,a great help.
Glad you are getting it sorted. Paul is always busy. Did he have a conversion in the workshop? Its interesting to see what is hidden behind the panelling on van conversions. He uses lots of insulation not the “silver bubble wrap” that mainstream converter do.
