VW Camper Electrical Modifications 

Welcome to the VW Camper Van Electrical Modification Page

Volkswagen Camper Leisure Battery

If you are going to be using accessories such as fridges, lights, radios when you are camping it is a good idea to fit a leisure battery. It is wired in such a way that all your accessories run from it. When the engine is running the battery is being charged and then when you switch the engine off and use your accessories they do not run down your main battery so that your camper van still starts in the morning.

Below are some useful links relating to buying and installing a leisure battery and other electrical modifications for your Volkswagen Camper van.
