adding 12v socket
I am due to get a 2004 Berlingo van 1.9 d in the next week or so and i will be ply lining and fitting a plywood bulkhead. Before i do this i wondered how easy or difficult it would be to fit an extra 12v socket close to the rear doors. I would ideally like to run a new feed from an unused fuse and the socket i am looking at is rated maximum 20 amps, what size cabling would be best and what size fuse ? Do i need 20 amp cable and 20 amp fuse or use lower rated cable and fuse ? hope that makes sense. cheers, stuart.
