Hi Crypto mine is only wired for lights only, i dont charge the battery or run the fridge from the car, to be fair i always go electric hookup and never run the fridge whilst traveling.

i'm sure the dedicated wiring was another 150/200 more expensive.

Makes absolute sense for you Bessie and for many others :)

Just putting the record straight for those of us that require battery charging and fridge operation en route.

Sadly, as kit gets more sophisticated there is a price to pay.

it does when you hand the car back and kiss goodbye to your 500 towbar, then have to buy another

Been there too Bessie. After three years or 60000 miles, back it goes.

Fortunately my company came up with another option where I was able to fund the car myself and was given a monthly allowance to fund the purchase and running costs. In itself it didn't save much money but was more tax efficient and also gave me the ability to choose my own car instead of a black mondeo
