Before I start I have searched for this but can only find the answer for wiring in one 240v socket which I'm fine with.

I've installed the 240v hookup. I've connected up the RCD box to the hookup, but now need to sort the 240v sockets from that.

I've got the main cable coming from the RCD box and can wire it to one socket but I want to wire it to two behind the drivers seat and then one right at the back by the tailgate.

So which is the best way to do this?

A) Do I need three feeds from the RCD box for the three sockets?
B) One feed from the RCD box to a junction box then three feeds from that?
C) A feed from the RCD box to the one socket and piggy back that for the socket next to it, then a separate feed via a junction box to the rear of the van?
D) A feed from the RCD box to the one socket and piggy back that for the socket next to it, then a separate feed from the same RCD connection to the rear of the van?
E) Another way?

Could someone in the know please advise of the correct route to take?

Many thanks

Take it from your RCD 30ma you have 16amp DP MCB

Anyway its all one radial anyway, you can make connections at MCB or JB or loop in at sockets or multiple of each.

Personally I would take one cable from MCB to front then loop in/out to sockets there & take one cable from
MCB to socket in rear. All 2.5mm

With a limited supply of probably no more than 10 amps it isn't an issue.
