    Considering one of the above but there seems to be a range of different sizes of input amps, 30A to 240A.
    How do you find which one will be right for your van? Is it set according to the alternator output? If so where can this information be found?

    I am far from expert on these things but as no one else has replied...
    Yes, it will depend on what your alternator is able to put out.
    The most popular size seems to be the 50 amp jobby

    I have the sterling 60 amp fitted feeding of an120 amp alternator and find it more than adequate for my needs,
    I stupidly ran my hab batteries so low it switched off at the consumer unit but a couple of hours driving brought them right back to full charge,
    not recommended I know for the life of the batteries but I blamed it on the missus:D
