My name is Jared and I Co-founded and run vanlife.com We are constantly searching for the latest and best equipment to fitout vans and for other outdoor folk on our international platform. On appearance, it is a slick piece of equipment. The smooth modern metal casing is a stylish fire truck red and does not pose as an eyesore. It is slim and compact, and can be strategically mounted in or out of sight. We ran a short lead with power board attached which served our electrical needs.
The REDARC 2000W Pure Sine Wave inverter can run everything a house can. We took it on an adventure with Desert Pea Media to collaborate on a music project with the indigenous youth of Wilcannia. Setting up a studio to record on the road, we needed to run microphones, computers, interface, charge multiple cameras, speakers, batteries, UV lights, fans, the fridge and it continuously produced clean current with no signal interference and without overheating or making annoying noises. It is ridiculously easy to set up to the secondary battery, taking all the stress out of any mishaps we may of had whilst being on the set of production.
We also trialed the REDARC remote which can conveniently turn the inverter on and off from a distance of over 7 metres.
REDARC is above and beyond when it comes to quality. I have had a REDARC smart start SBI 12V isolator for the past 18 months while living on the road. It is automatic and switches on when the van is running, no manual manipulation and never once has it faulted. REDARC is a brand for those that are serious about living and working on the road. I honestly cannot recommend them enough. We @ www.vanlife.com.au will be fitting out plenty of vans with their goods. If you are planning your fitout or dreaming of your next mobile home. REDARC goods can be sourced in Australia and through out Europe. International postage to other continents is also available.
