    I have a Chausson suite garage 2011 that i want to fit a solar panel to. I believe there is a pre-wired connection in there somewhere. Does anyone know where i can find it or even what it looks like ?

    Hi. Your van will most probably have a main box where your 12v and 240v fuses and breakers are located...incorporating a battery charger etc something like a Sargent control unit... The later ones I believe also have a solar charge controller built in,so if you can locate that and post the model someone will be able to help..

    If you have a Chausson dealer or workshop nearby they might be able to point you in the right direction?

    Hi
    Our chausson also has a connection for solar. Its all in the manuals and circuit diagrams that came with the van.
    I can go check... But not tonight

    The problem is that I have not got the wiring diagram.... I have emailed chausson and they have not replied and the guy at the dealers does not know where it is. He said just connect it directly onto the battery but I would rather wire it into the pre wired connection. If I can find it.....

    Found ours last weekend I think!!. It is in the cupboard over the sink there is a false side to the cupboard one side (the outside ) has the tv ariel and 12v socket the inside another 12v socket. If you remove the inside panel (4 screws) there is a connector with 2 wires not connected which I think are the solar panel wires. The wiring diagram suggests this. I do not know however if there is a solar regulator I seen to recall there is one capable of taking up to an 80w panel does anyone know better?
