Following a few recent questions and comments from viewers, here is a beginners guide to how electrics work on a narrowboat. It may also have general relevance to people in campervans, motorhomes, caravans and RVs although there are slight differences but the gist is similar.
Please note I am not a qualified boat electrician and I have intentionally kept this superficial and left some things out so as to keep it simple for novices.
Please also direct questions not in the comments but to the 12 Volt Boating group on Facebook, which is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/144684286108763/
*NOTE*: this should not be confused with the very-similarly named, but different, “12 Volts Boating Group” (notice “volts” not “volt”) which is also on Facebook and is run by someone else.
