Hi Alison, welcome to the Fun.

That's a 12 volt socket and plug, used to power 12v items such as TV. It will be powered by your leisure battery.

Its an 12 volt socket for appliances such as a tv etc. The
pins on the plug are angled so it can only be plugged in one way so polarity is correct. Havent been in vans for quite a few years now.

They work well though. I've recently fitted one to run a compressor coolbox. It gives a much more reliable connection than a cigar lighter or DIN plug.

For the technically minded you may find this hard to believe that plug and socket was a original designed and made by a small company called Senate for use on 240v for the lighting in a Baxi hearter. W4 started marketing them for 12v use in the late 70's and late 80's bought the tooling frome Senate. (I was the technical manager of W4 for 10 years) and had the job of sorting it out.
