Caravan accessories and equipment have increasingly more sophisticated in recent years, as has the manufacture of the caravans themselves.
Whilst some caravan equipment is all but essential for a self-sufficient trip - ovens, fridges, gas, motor movers and so on - other caravanning accessories provide home comforts or luxuries that can turn a good caravan holiday into a great one, such as mobile internet, satellite TV, or an awning to increase living space.
Caravan insurance is one of the most important considerations for many caravanners. Knowing that your investment is sufficiently protected, whether in between trips, on the road or pitched on site, will give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Is that price for school holidays?
We have booked for 4 nights next week just south of Edinburgh to visit family. Price was £35 per night. We thought it expensive but had no choice due to family commitments.
Our overnight stopovers on route are at club 5 van sites at £15 per night with electric.
When I bought my twenty-two year old Avondale, ten years ago, the previous owner's daughter told me the Truma fire had a fault. Eventually, I tried it out and it did work - but later I discovered that when it reached a certain temperature, the fire automatically switched off. The fault was that one of the temperature limiters had failed, and the fire wouldn't work again until it was manually switched off, the power removed, then switched on again.
It might be that should you get the wires the wrong way round, the fire won't work correctly. But trial and error will maybe prove that theory. My best wishes!
If the two black wires simply go across the switch/cutout then it seems to make no odds as to which is which.
So many thanks to you both for putting up with and responding to my otherwise simple question - but it could have been so different had the wires gone elsewhere.
At least the question has been raised and it may help someone else further down the line if (when) they have the same issue.
Again, cheers to you both.
Exceedingly unlikely that the caravan maker included a second fuse for the amplifier, not to mention unnecessary. Changing to any other VisionPlus amplifier is very straight forward and uses the existing power cable.
May I suggest that VP4 with signal finder (£31) has the same footprint, fixing holes and connections as your existing VP2 (£24). If you are specifically looking for the extra AE connections provided by VP3, then VP5 (£36) is the signal finder version of VP3 (£29).
The very first modification I made to our new caravan was to swap the supplied VP3 out for a VP5 - its signal finder feature works impressively well.
