Hi all,

I am looking to turn a Range Rover (L322) seat into an office chair.
The seat has electric adjustment which I would like to run off the mains when it's in the office.

Am I right in thinking that if the seat has a 30a fuse in the vehicle, then I need a 12v transformer rated above 30a hooked up to the mains. I plan to then put a 30a fuse between the transformer and seat connections.
Would a 13a fuse at the mains plug be appropriate?

The wiring setup would be:
13a fused plug at mains into a 12v 35/40a transformer then a 30a fuse before the seat connector.

Is anyone able to advise as to whether my thinking is correct, please?

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Should work, will only need a 3A fuse in the plug though.
30A at 12v is only 360W, which is ~1.5A at 230v.
