Does anybody know of an adapter for either the European 2 pin or the British 3 pin into the 12V system. The adapter could be for the could be for the cigarette style socket or the wall mounted 12V. Many thanks

I'm not sure 'which way' you wish to go, do you want to go from 240v ac to 12v dc, or 12v dc to 240v ac?


Your 'input' from the external mains will already be converted to 12v dc, or an inverter can be used to swap from 12v to 240v & most have

universal output sockets.

I have a plug in Mosquito repellent kit from Amazon. It uses EC two pins. I can get a two pin to UK three pin adaptor, so all will be well while we are camping with a hook up. I was wondering if anyone knew of an adapter for either two or three pin pin plugs into the 12v system.

Your repellent kit won't work off the 12 volt system....it's designed for 230v. You would need an inverter as stated above or else use it only on EHU.

Hi anthp123.

The question is? Your mosqiuto gizmo. Is it a 12 volt or a 240 volt appliance?
If it is 240 volt you will need an invertor to take your 12 volt up to 240 volt. (expensive way to do it.)
Or if it is a 12 volt applience with a 240 to 12 volt transformer built into the connection lead?
If the latter is the case you will only need a lead to connect the applience directly to the motorhome 12 volt supply.
You will not need the plug in transformer. look here

Cheers. Whisky. champagne

You need an AC to DC Inverter. Follow the link above to see several examples.

Hi there,

From your Post it would appear that you need something like this.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Be aware that:

o It only delivers 75 watts. (Which should be sufficient - but double check.)

o Using the cigarette lighter means that you will be draining the vehicle battery! (Also check that the socket works with the ignition off.)

Best regards,
