    Newbie with loadsa questions!

    Hi all,
    was pointed in this general direction as a good source for the info i will need over the next few months as i start on an install into my 1964 VW splitscreen camper van!
    I'm hoping to install an indash 12v mp4 player i already have to a 19" LCD TV or monitor which i also wat hooked up to my early "big" ps2.
    Herein lies the questions...
    1; is there a lead or guide for converting the earlier ps2 to 12v?
    2; Ideally i want everything to run off 12v, will there be an LCD source suitable? and would a montior be better than a TV?
    3; Looking for recommendations for split charge set up.
    I am installing a new loom, have a new leisure battery as well, but otherwise im looking for pointers before i commit to buy!
    Hope the forum will help me??

    Cheers, Goose

    1. Perhaps on a PS2 dedicated forum.

    2. Yes to both.

    3. Can't help you with that one, but others can.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    "Split charge"? Can you define that for me? My guess is you are thinking of two independent batteries, powered off of a single engine - each independent circuit from the other? Honestly, for the system you're describing - its not necessary. If you do decide to go that route, research battery isolators. $$$$$!

    There is a PS2 12v adapter - check ebay - otherwise use a basic 120v low watt inverter.
    Take my advice: Do not try to build a system that includes EVERY feature. Start with the basics, build it to a bug free state, and THEN add on.

    Thanks for the replies so far, by split charge I mean to have a leisure battery to run all the ancillaries i want to fit and a regular battery for the starter and lights etc, just want to make sure i do it as safely as possible!
