About Our Caravans
All of our caravans will run from an electric hook-up, gas bottle supply and leisure battery.
In the first instance, an electric hook-up is always the preferred option where possible as everything in the caravan will operate well and without interruption.
We appreciate there are sites or locations where it is 'off grid' only and so you have the gas and leisure battery option.
In this instance, please be aware that you will not be able to use any electrical appliances such as the TV, electric sockets and microwave. The fridge is then operated firstly from the gas supply and also the leisure battery as a back-up. The hob, oven and cooker are operated from the gas supply as are the hot water and heating.
Can I charge my mobile phone whilst off-grid?
Yes, you can! You will need to bring your own 12v charger connector if you want to charge from the caravan but please be aware this will be very draining on the leisure battery so we'd recommend using the 12v charger in your car cigarette lighter point whilst you're out and about in the car or bring a charger battery power pack
specific to your phone.
TAKING A GENERATOR? - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The start up current can be 3 or 4 times higher than the running current causing a spike in electricity which may result in fuses within the PCB being blown. It could render certain aspects e.g. the hot water system, inoperable and could mean the cost of repair being retained from your deposit.
Some campsites/locations may not allow the use of generators at all. Some will allow 'silent' generators which may only be operated between specific times of day (please check with your campsite owner).
What's included in the caravan?
