    The amount of power supplied to your 'van, depends on the trips installed at the campsite, usually 10 or 16 amp.

    So 10 amps x 230volts = 2300 watts.
    and 16 amps x 230volts = 3600 watts.

    Any piece of electrical equipment installed in you van, or anything you buy (ie toaster, kettle etc) will somewhere have on it a data label which will give you the amerage and wattage.

    The formula to use is, V=I/R. Using that, you can find Amps, Watts or Voltage as required.

    Is that what you're after?:BigGrin:
