I’d been thinking about what electrical wiring I needed to run behind the panels once I fitted them. Not having converted a van before I was conscious that I’m bound to forget some cable or want to add something later so I’ve decided to use flexible conduit and make sure I have some access in the future.
This is the access point behind the drawer.
And viewed in-place. I’ve added a piece of conduit from this point to the one in the next photo, further back in the van.
This is the point further back in the van.
This shows the access points on the, yet to be covered, rear panel. You can also see the various holes I cut in the top LHS of the panel for the various switches/sockets I’ll be fitting.
The larger hole is for the Propex heater thermostat.
I had to carefully remove the cable housing to fit the cable through the necessary holes.
I also drilled a number of small holes to allow for cable access (and added grommets).
This is the hole for the conduit which will run to under the drivers seat (I didn’t fancy drilling a biggish hole in the bottom of the B-pillar for cable access).
