At Scourie, in NW Scotland, we had the option of 10 amp pitches at the back of the site or 5 amp pitches at the front - no contest given the view - the only things we couldn't use were the microwave and 2000w settings on the Truma and hairdryer (1000w settings worked just fine) - ensuring that only one thing is on at a time isn't too difficult.

What people tend to forget is that the hot water heater & fridge would still be on and could cause the 10 amp breaker to trip if it suddenly they cut in whereas with the socket adaptor this will not happen, however it seems that the poster wants to run the hair drier off a genny which would make them very popular if it is run either early morning or late afternoon. I suppose a heavy duty invertor may just do the trick but then it may be simpler to go to a EHU site or sit in the sun and wait for the hair to dry. :D


Hi surfer,
Just turn off the other appliances. We actually had the fire on 2000w on a 10a supply Cc site, along with the fridge and TV/Sky+ box yet it only blew when the kettle was used over and above those items. That's when I found out that there was only a 10a supply :D ,
Regards,
Ian.
