6. Van Lighting Installation
The lighting creates the ambiance, sets the mood, and lets you function when it’s dark outside. Needless to say, it’s pretty important and luckily, it’s not that diﬃcult! Follow along and we’ll tell you everything you need to know.
Wire from solar panels to battery – Once you’ve ﬁnished insulting your van (if you choose to do that), it’s time to ﬁgure out where you want your light switches, where you want your lights, and where you’ll store your batteries. Once you have that ﬁgured out, run your wires! By this, I mean simply start the wire at the battery *give yourself extra length*, run it to where the switch will live (taping it to the wall along the way), and then to where each light will go.
