More Good Feedback for Upspex

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As it says, like to add my recommendations for Upspex, Blackie and Callum worked tirelessly but always taking the time to do it right with the work on my van. Knowledgeable, friendly and willing to offer suggestions and guidance, it was almost like having mates help you on your van until the end when I had to pay up of course
Highly recommended.

Yet another satisfied customer!!

Just a quick note to say thanks and commend the work that Blackie and Callum did on my T4 last week, CAT 1 Alarm, Central Locking and Electric Windows. Fantastic install, very professional with a wealth of knowledge to back it up, on top of that they came down to Sussex to install it... cracking!

The start of the long road to upgrading the van... need some wheels next....




I asked Martyn to quote and do a Toad flip alarm, wire in my fog lights and provide an extra 12v power supply to the rear load area.

He arrived bang on time, knew his way round the bus like no other, and fitted them all very quickly, neatly and just as I had imagined and expected.

He is a very nice genuine guy who gives a great service, well recommended, I would certainly use him again, I just need to think of more electrical projects!!

Martyn, thanks again and I hope to bump into you soon, beers on me!

Highly Recommended!

I have been searching for months around the north west to get my leisure battery fitted, interior leds connected to come on with the doors opening and on an independent switch, 240v set up 3 pin sockets and 12v sockets. Well all sorted yesterday by Upspex i had most of the parts got to say how chuffed i am with the work all very professional done, well fitted and i have to say a great price Upspex a real gent and patient with constant flow of questions from me. If you want leisure battery setups alarm etc go with Upspex he knows his business you wont find better anywhere.

Many thanks mate hopefuly see you soon (will post pics soon)

Took battery out and charged on a mains charger and all is good again for now. Checked inline fuses and all seems fine, just wondered if its the fact I dont do many long trips so the battery isnt getting time to charge back up enough. If not could you point me in the right direction (I have access to a multimeter).

cheers, Jim

Did you have a VSR or did you connect to the D+ wire? I have found it fairly common for the D+ output to be too weak to energise the 100 amp relay. If you find that your relay isn't energising remove signal wire from D+ connection and connect to one of the black/yellow wires on the top of the fuse box.
Just trying to cover all bases for you as I am off for a few days and wont be available.
Hope this helps, Martyn.


Martyn - you were right on the money. The D+ wire we used was only kicking out 6v, so took your advice and seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for the tip - top bloke!!

cheers, Jim

I needed to post this as I cannot recommend Travel Volts highly enough, following the work Martin did on my T5 this week.
A very professional service and a guy willing to share the wealth of knowledge he has with anyone showing an interest.
All the kit supplied was spot on, as was delivery.

If you are currently researching van electrics or looking for any conversions kit, then check out the web site or talk to these guys at Travel Volts.

I’m new to the T5 world , but have been around the aircooled scene for long enough to know these guys are spot on, couldn’t be more approachable or helpful.

It all depends on the job. If you just want a light bulb changing I go to the end of the street, If you want a big job then maybe I could work it in with a weekend by the sea

Ok, so as its a 2003 you need only a 2-1 upgrade as you already have a cat 2 immobiliser.
Autowatch 458 and full central locking fitted for 495 at your place.

sounds good. some questions if that's ok - 08 velle.
1. is that battery a 'sealed' jobbie? does it need to 'breathe'. How much to fit a leisure battery relay setup with all internals running off it using nice thick charging cable.
2. how much to do rear parking sensors cost fitted, '08 caravelle.
3. can the existing electric windows be modified to auto close when centrally locked with the zapper.

approximations are fine.
thx

Hi, all batteries need to breath, but yes, it is what's called a sealed battery. Even so I recommend a breather pipe to the outside.
Split charge sytems are 100 amp relay fused at both ends at 100 amps and using 130 amp cable. This is 90 fitted and a better job you will not find. This system will never let you down.
Rear parking sensors are 175 fitted, I only use top notch equipment. There are cheaper sets out there (a lot cheaper) but they are rubbish, I kid you not.
And finally, I would imagine that it is possible to do this mod with the electric windows, prob cost about 100.
