    One of the things we hated about the kitchen area of the MH was the lack of mains sockets. After looking around for a EU version ( loads of UK versions ) I fitted it today. Takes about an hour from start to finish.

    Hardest part was wiring into the MH mains supply. Now we have enough sockets to cook with.

    Nice job, no idea what tensile means, which is mainly why I had a look at the thread, still not sure, but massively better than the extension lead we use (y):)

    Before ordering one please check that you have room below the counter for the drop of the plug in the down position, which can be as much as 9in in old money or 23cm if you go for USB charging point as will. I only had enough room for 3 x sockets and no USB points when it is in the dropped position.
    I got mine from ebay and their are loads, so shop wisely, many are available in UK, but some take weeks to arrive from the other side of the world.

    The one I bought was from this seller:

    It looks great.

    Lack of power points is an issue in most MHs I think. We are having extras put in the new van but will probably still need more :)

    Ask them to fit these for you before collection as clean finish and saves room when not in use.
