Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know how to make / buy / find a plug or way of using a BV in a vehicle without the correct plug?

    Would you need a transformer or something?

    I remember replacing loads of units that the Boiling Vessel plugged into in BV206's, would I need one?
  2. If memory serves me right - it's been a few years, we used to wire them to the sig btys in the back. Can't remember how though :oops:
  3. as far as i know there are about 4 or 5 wires, cant really work out how it would work, also dont actually have one to test with yet!

    Doesn't work on 24 rather than 12v? Not at all certain, just a niggling memory!
  5. Speak to some one in the LAD I'm sure they will oblige in exchange for a couple of beers.
  6. one of my lot them, lol
  7. I thought BVs were only used on 24v vehs. We used them on the 432 series wagons. The only other veh I saw them in was a "Recker" (I'm not saying they aren't used on other wagons). I would say you need a techey or electrical geek to pin out the cables with a mutimeter to see whats what.
  8. Correct, that's why I said we connected it to the signal btys in the back. I'm sure they were modded to fit, by some REME tech for a couple of beers :wink:
  9. Just to add to Recce19's comments, I thought all FFR rovers were 24V anyways.
  10. Seen In an FFR, surely easiest thing to do is dig out the part numbers from the relevant AESP????
  11. When I was in, thez were never on official issue for FFR's, only for tracked vehicles and Stolly's. This may have changed since then though.

    Can be -depends how you wire the batts up... :wink:
  13. Never came across an FFR that wasn't 24v. However, I have seen 12v GS fitted with radios :wink:
  14. Believe BV's may be an authorised mod for command vehicles, rank has its priveledges and all that :roll: Anyone know any different or more info?

    Also seen them fitted to fodens
