    Hi,

    Our 2013 Flash 03 has a sad lack of 12v and 240v sockets. Two cigarette lighter style in the cab but just one 12v up by the tv mount to power the tv and a single 240v below the sink.

    Has anyone fitted more? I assume this is quite a common mod. Any guides online?

    Not sure if this helps, we fitted a 4 socket extension to the vertical bed side plugged into one of the tv sockets. Gives us extra sockets at the kitchen. For the 12v I bought one of the charger pods off amazon, this fits in the cup holder. Can remove and plug in bedroom when parked up, gives USB charging points and seperate plug in 12v
    Sorry about pictures not that clear image.jpeg image.jpeg

    I've fitted an extra socket (12v cigar type and double USB) in the lounge running directly off the hab batteries which are in a locker below the seat. Bought from 12v planet.I fitted a separate switch with a LED but it could have been a plain switch as the double USBport illuminates blue when on (I don't think that this is clear from the description on 12v planet website). I fitted a 10A fuse. I have a useful pocket above the socket for putting the phones etc in for recharging.

    I'm intending to put an inverter behind the passenger seat in our 630 and a 230v socket close by as the lack of either in the area around the table or sofas is something of an irritation. I wouldn't have thought it would be difficult as the electrics for the water heater are under the LHS sofa. We have a couple of cigarette lighter extensions, one on the dash, one in the hab hab area which provide a few extra. USB sockets and power the dash cam & sat nav.

    Not just yours but most mh that are made are sadly lacking in enough 12 and 240v outlets..
    I installed a few more in my 620 by running a new supply to a smll fuse box and running them from that... there was extra capacity on the 230v box to run a few 230v off that...
    Some pictures...

    We have four 12v volt sockets in ours including two in the cab but very disappointed with only two 240 volt sockets and they are so far up (near ceiling) that can't even plug a kettle or toaster in them .
    Thought there might have been a few I overlooked as when I rang the dealer he said they like to tuck them away .

    Looks great, did you do all the work yourself? Where did you find the switch gear and sockets to match what you already had?

    Thanks...
    Yes , do all that sort of thing myself...
    Just to be clear the switches for the boiler controls (shown relocated in one photo) were just the oroginal switches in their new location..
    The dark brown sockets i think i got from here... cbe or berker.. ..with a selection of colours to choose from.. you do need to be sure you order all the parts for them... a holder , mounting frame , and snap on cover..
