    in the emergency service stuff we did it was a matter of fitting an automatic change over switch that had feeds from the inverter , shore power, generator, it can be done using a relay but I can't remember what make or models the relays were, it would probably work out cheaper to keep the inverter circuit separate as Q Four say's,

    If you do wire it into the feed for your electrical consumer unit, you must make sure that your charger, fridge and water heater are switched off.

    The easiest way is to fit an extra socket for the inverter to run. If not then put it inline AFTER the consumer unit and only on the socket circuits. (and only if the inverter has full safety features)

    Worth remembering that if you use another source to feed your mains system, the blue 3 pin inlet will be live from outside your van if anyone should touch the pins!

    hi
    i could easily wire it to the sockets on the left hand side seat where it will be fitted
    under. the problem is the microwave which is right at the back in the top locker.
    its a old van so no elec. water heater. i dont think the battery charger has a swich
    but i could fit one. it once blew a internal fuse glass one its a electromatic charger
    i wonder if that was due to the other inverter.

    ..

    The inverter should be wired to the battery with thick cable ( Short as Possible ) and a decent size fuse. The wire from your inverter to the 13 amp socket/s can be ordinary 13 amp 3 core cable. Keep the two circuits TOTALLY SEPARATE ..
    ..
    I forgot to say put a a/b through switch in to switch to either,blond moment.
    Others have said m/wave but if thats what you are going to power you will require a 1500w unit as most m/waves use about 1200w to run.

    hi
    just a update on this thread. i have been on the phone to adverc battery
    products they are the uk agent. they said it will have 240v in and 240v out
    and wired in it senses the mains hook up and automatically protects
    itself. like full timer said.

    thanks for advice.
