What sort of contactor are you using for your heater? That's my next job now the Berlingo is charging.

Albright SW60B-7. It came with the heater from CanEV, but its very common and should be available from suppliers in the UK.

Keep in mind mine was only drawing about 15 amps at pack voltage (144~160VDC) so the peak voltage rating is relative. Going by the example in the above link, the rating is 3840 watts. Mine was only drawing about 2500 max if I remember right.
