Once installed the second battery and the split charge relay (more here), my mission was to put the LED lightning on the roof.
Got your battery? Got your split charge relay kit?
Fab. This is how you can install your split charge relay. Most kits will also come with the instructions so you should already have a ruff idea on what needs to be done.
When i started working on Pamthevan I had no idea on how electricity worked. Even after finishing the electrical system i still have no clue. But i guess it’s a bit like using a car while not knowing how it exactly works: you know it’s dangerous and you know you have to be careful!
To carpet the rest of the Kangoo you will need to carpet the pillars (where the seat belt lives) the sides below the windows and the roof above the driving cabin.
Now that you are done with your insulation, it is time to start carpeting your van. The carpet is also an insulator and sound dampener, but it looks much much nicer than foil bubble wrap! If done properly, the carpet will give your van a finished and homely feel.
The last part of Pam to be insulated was the roof. Again I have used the combo camping mats + foil bubble wrap and I’m very happy with the results.
The second part to be insulated in Pam the van was the walls and the two sliding doors.
The sides are not ply lined (due to awkward angles and shapes) while the doors are.
The first part of Pam I decided to insulate was the floor and the wheel arches.
The Kangoo (like most vans) has ridges on the floor which can make it fiddly to insulate.
