Hi everyone!
i've recently bought a T4 (1995) and want to wire a leisure battery in it. BUT..i noticed it has got a tow bar on it with 2 sockets.. now i'm presuming one is for towing lights and the other is for charging caravans etc..? do you think there could be a split charge relay system in it already then? then i could just re-route this cable to the leisure battery.

how can i tell whether this is the case or not?

any help would be much appreciated.

If its to a caravan socket its likely to be a really thin cable which will be pretty useless for charging your leisure battery.

Yes it should have and yes you can "BUT"

it will prob only be low amps - some i've seen are only 15a

Check the size of the wire - (count the strands if you have to) and check out the fuse rating.
