When you pick up your Off Highway Van, you will have plenty of new systems to get familiar with from water, to solar, and even the amperage available to your van.

Shore Power Charging

In this tech tip, we'll teach you how to both turn down your amp draw when plugging into GFCI shore power, as well as increase your amp draw to plug into 30 amp outlets that are standard at many campsites across the country.
