Ranger PA10 Direct power Supply
Frequently Asked Questions Handy Hints and Tips Instruction Manuals & DIY
Ranger PA10. Instructions for use.

The New RANGER PA10 has been designed to provide a DIRECT Power Supply to the 12v Services in a caravan or boat when fed from a 220/240v mains supply. Its torroidal transformer made to BS3535 has an output of about 120watts. The RANGER'S 12v Output is sufficiently smoothed to enable it to operate fluorescent lights, water pump, and other 12v services efficiently. If a battery is installed, the RANGER will charge the battery at a variable rate depending on the power demand being required of the 12v system. It will not overcharge a battery in good condition. The RANGER will automatically reduce to a trickle charge, as the battery charges up.

Ranger PA10 Power Pack
The RANGER PA10 can be bolted down onto the floor or onto a bulkhead in the usual way. It wants some space leaving around the installation so that any heat can be dissipated from the RANGER. It stands to reason that the RANGER should not be inadvertently covered with clothing, sleeping bags, and simi lair items. The 240v mains lead should be connected to a protected mains supply, I.E. a consumer unit fitted with an RCD Mains Protection Device.
The 12v DC output should be connected as follows. Red to 12v positive, and Black to 12v negative. Connecting up to the correct polarity is vitally important.

The RANGER PA10 is fitted with an 8amp (13 amp blow) fuse in the 12v output. The correct fuse in the 12v output must be maintained at all times. Failure to use the correct fuse will invalidate the warranty on this product. If unable to obtain the correct fuse send 2x25p stamps to Breckland Trading Co, at the address below.

The RANGER PA10 is covered by a 12month warranty against faulty manufacture. In the event of any claim, the unit must be returned in the following condition. The mains and output leads must ne essentially the same length as originally supplied. There must be proof that the correct fuse has been used at all times. Proof of the date and place of purchase must accompany any claim.

I purchased my first PA10 in 1995/6 and used it in our old Thomson Glennevis up until we changed caravans in March 2008, As we have another Glennevis which did not have a battery charger or power pack one of the first things I purchased was a new PA10 for it, took me about 30mins to fit and I am looking forward to at least another 10 years before I need another one. These units are ideal if your caravan, like mine, has a full 12volt system installed with the 240v electrics as an additional installation after its original purchase.
The PA10 Power Pack is excellent for use when on site electrics and you prefer not to use the battery or if you are on site and need to keep the battery charged ready for the next stop at a small site with no electrics.
I can honestly say that in the many years that I have used this great item from Breckland Trading company I have never had a problem with it, not even a blown fuse!
If you are looking for a Power pack for your van then I certainly would highly recommend a look on the Breckland website, these are one item that will certainly give you many years of service and prove to be excellent value for money.
