    Go onto the Ifitstuff website, and they will recommend a decent auto electrician in your area. They were set up to raise the standard, and you have to jump through a lot of hoops to join!

    I have used Phil from Rhino installs a few times and he is first class. Mobile service and very good after sales as well. I would recommend him. On my van: solar panel, battery master, satellite dish, twin reversing camera and a few other bits. All very neatly done.

    Edit: sometimes takes a day or two to catch up on emails but never failed to reply....

    Could not agree. I was overcharged for some work and, also, had no response from a request for a part. In fact, I stood in their showroom waiting to order the part whilst the salesman blathered away on the phone for at least 10mins (more fool me).

    I have used Rhino for all sorts, a sat dish, solar panels and meter and air suspension. No need to wonder, he is great.

    Never knew that....

    My local dealer isn't cheap either but at least I know that Phil will only charge for what he actually does and will do a good job. The reversing camera developed an intermittent fault so he simply came (at mutually arranged date) and swapped it for a new unit. He gets my vote.

    Rhino Installs – in the words of Tina Turner are; “SIMPLY THE BEST”

    We got our Motorhome in September 2014; it needed a few improvements, so we could take our creature comforts with us across Europe.


    That list of Creature comforts included; Satellite with TV & Internet, Air Conditioning, and New improved leisure batteries, New Solar Panels and a 2000Watt 12v to 240v inverter, just for starters.


    With NO motor-homing before, we were purchasing blind, apart from good old Google for research, we needed someone who could guide us through the minefield of purchasing tried and trusted upgrades etc. Phil proved invaluable here, we gave him an outline of what we were looking for and Phil made his recommendations on products that he’d used and installed previously, after obtaining Quotes from other companies, we opted to go with Rhino Installs (Phil) to do the installation of the upgrades to our Motorhome.


    Phil arrived in the morning 8:30am, now bear in mind; we are located just south of Glasgow in Scotland, Phil had already been on the road for 4 hours... to get to us and he set to work straight away.


    Making light work of the Satellite and Air-condition and seeing Phil was coping very well by himself, I took my leave into the house, only coming out to ask if he would like anything to eat or a cup of tea, i find it better to keep out the way while all the technical stuff is being carried out.


    Time was getting one, its was past 7:00pm and the offer of a shower and a room for the night was made to Phil but no, Phil was on a roll and declined the offer, as he was within sight of completing the whole installation and said he could make home before midnight as he had more jobs lined up for the next morning in another part of the UK.


    Just as 8:00pm arrived so did Phil at the door, that was the whole installation was now complete and ready to rock and roll, we had a little play with the new items installed Paid the bill and Phil was on his way South heading for home.


    This year 2015, we have had a few more improvements carried out by Phil, as on his previous visit Phil carried out an exemplary install, this year’s installs were a Toad Alarm, LowGas system, LED driving lights, a reversing camera and a further leisure battery to extend our power required.


    I know what you’re asking now, “Would I recommend Phil to you?” YES! I would recommend Phil, to wrap it up in a phrase again, Rhino Installs “Do exactly as they say on the box”

    Full customer satisfaction Guaranteed.

    Yes it's a thumbs up for Phil from Rhino Installs. He's now made his area of work smaller so doesn't come down to Devon anymore. I had arranged to have air suspension fitted to my Laika whilst we were in York. Phil rang to say his supplier wasn't happy to use their air suspension on my ALko chassis so he said he wasn't happy to do it and suggested that I enquire more info from ALko. Very honest suggestion and I have since found it was a good shout. Good chap!
