hi people can anyone tell me,when using 12 volt power...do any of the 12volt power points have to be double pole
my own assumption is no...but have not been able to get a reliable answer from anybody..

also i plan on running 240v in to power a 12v charger and then 12v battery...can i run a power wire from battery on one side of the van across
to the other side and then into a buzz bar to power all the 12v stuff ??

any help appreciated
cheers

G'day JJ,

It has never been explained to me nor have I ever asked but the obvious reason for double pole mains switches is you cannot be sure that the active pin is active. If you use a dud power cable with active and neutral swapped or an incorrectly wired source then your van active and neutral will be swapped and a single pole switch only controlling the neutral wire.

No such safety logic applies to DC so a single pole switch in the positive line should suffice.

You can run DC as far as you like as long as there is a fuse at the source and heavy enough cabling. And you mean a busbar ;-)

thanks for that OT i vaguely understand the priciple of double pole....and have no intention of compromising safety
that is why i have tried to verify that aspect.

other than the 240v powering the battery charger and 1 double pwer point...evrything else is/will be 12v and there won't be anymore
than is needed...no fancy stuff...but there will be sufficient fuses to cover everything

thanks for your expertise.....and your right...i meant busbar :lol:
cheers
