Is the VLC available to install and hook up your One-up?

Yes. $100 to mount and connect to your alternator (*on most new vans)

Are you available to mount and connect solar panels?

Yes. Please contact us for a quote

Are you available to continue wiring the rest of the van?

Of course! We love to offer you our services. In case we are booked out, we also offer free training to teach you how you can do this on your own!

Does this work with induction stoves?

Yes, but only for light cooking. You can chain another 200ah of batteries and choose the 3000w option for better performance. Stay tuned for the One-up360!

Does this work with an air conditioner?

No. For a traditional 120v ac, you need substantially more power. For a 12-volt A/C like the Dometic RTX, the 1UP200 will operate the A/C for a short run time only. Stay tuned for the 1UP360.

How long does it take to install?

In a new Ford Transit, it takes 30-45 min to anchor and 10 minutes to hook up to the alternator. Hardware is included.

Do I need tools?

You will need…

  • A standard drill or impact driver
  • An optional install tool kit includes:
    • 1/4″ drill bit
    • P2 Phillips bit
    • 5/16″ wrench
Can I do this if I don’t know electrical?

Yes. Our install video is coming soon!

How do I hook up my lights and other appliances?

The BlueSea fuse box is ready to accept wires from your appliances. We offer a free workshop once a month in Hood River, OR to learn this, and you can also refer to our training video coming soon.
Also, a wiring tool kit is available for purchase.

Does this come with a warranty?


The Vanlife Collective guarantees a three-year warranty on the 1UP box.
