Hi there,

I am about to install electrics in my 2008 t28 panel van and would like to put a leisure battery/split charger under the drivers seat. Im going to buy a 110ah battery from travel volts as i hear these dimensions are suitable.

What i need to know is the installation process including ;

  1. Getting access to the compartment beneath the drivers seat - do you need to remove the seat off its base?
  2. how do you go about venting/earthing the battery correctly?
  3. is there any recommended route to run the split charger cables into the engine bay?


If anyone would be kind enough to provide some advice it would be greatly appreciated!

cheers,
matt

there are loads of post on this subject.

1 yes you would need to remove tne seat( unbolt the runners) to fitthe battery.
2 earth it ia an earth stap to one of the base retaing bolts and vent via th grommet inthe floor under the seat in the middle.
3 there is a grommet in the bulk head behind thebattery,then trace down the centre from the dash by the raised bit then under the seat, all will come clearwhen you liftbthe rubber floor.
