thanks for the info. We just plug them in the same as we do at home. I'm beginning to wonder if my home isn't missing something LOL

In case it hasn't already been mentioned, the 12v positive is blue, and negative is brown. There shouln't be any confusion as the 240v AC will always have a green/yellow earth alongside.

Great reminder from Stevejoyce.
Many people have been tripped up in the past with the quirky Eriba colour code.
Definitely Blue + Brown-

Not a problem to get it the wrong way round with filament lights but LEDs won't work with reverse polarity and pumps will spin backwards!

But if you've installed a polarity sensitive LED like I believe did on last van it could blow. Not really an issue if just the bulb, but when it was a £20 unit an expensive mistake. I have to admit I pleaded ignorant and the wholesaler replaced it.
