    Just have a single EHU power socket on Big Gertie but want to run a small camper type fridge with standard plug externally (in the awning) So need something that allows me to connect EHU but also has a 3 pin socket. Make sense?

    What should I be searching for?

    Not sure I properly understand but, if you are just wanting a 3 pin plug socket on the awning side of your van then there is no problem. There is an external 3 pin socket fitting available. You should find one quite easily and I've no doubt you will get one at Todds Motorhomes, Lostock Hall. Obviously they could fit it for you if you aren't confident about attacking the electrics, but be warned they aren't cheap! If you want a combination EHU and 3 pin adaptor I'm afraid I can't help, but know doubt one of the guys will be along to advise.

    The first one you can build yourself. Just Google "CEE blue 2P+E" or "16amp blue"
