About this deal

It’s important to understand the rating of your cable because to meet the IEE regulations it needs to be a 2.5mm core mains lead. Although mains leads are not essential for a successful caravan, motorhome or campervan trip, it can make your time on the road that little bit more relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. Although, as we noted earlier, EHU cables come in a variety of lengths, we recommend you should invest in a one of 25 metres so that you have enough to stretch to the bollard, even if your pitch is further away than you expected. Here are some of the factors to consider when choosing between electric hook up cables for your caravan or motorhome: Cable Length

In this guide, we’ll show you the best caravan hook up cables on the market, so you can take full advantage of the local power supply – and sleep easy knowing that the toaster and coffee machine will be waiting for you in the morning! Or that the kids won’t run out of television…Most campervans and motorhomes have a 12V leisure battery onboard which will offer enough power to run a small fridge, mobile phones and LED lights for a couple of days. A normal kettle uses 2000W, or 8.7A. Therefore, we recommended above that you take special low-watt appliances. That one household item would use all the power from a 10A hook up. Some of these lower quality leads are made in people’s homes so they haven’t been produced at a commercial level which could mean that they haven’t been properly safety tested. They may look good on the outside, but there’s no way of telling if they’ve been wired correctly on the inside. Warranty

We recommend that you avoid purchasing caravan hook up cables that have a rating lower than IP44. Cable Rating It may be common sense to many of you reading this, but it’s worth noting that run-of-the-mill household extension cables are not suitable for use with electric hook ups. Ideally, you should buy EHU cables from a reputable retailer, whether that is online or offline. Typical power consumption shown. Varies for different appliance models. Electric hook up top 5 safety tips Although electric hook ups are, for the most part, safe; whenever electricity and potentially wet environments are involved you should always be extra careful. Make sure you follow the following tips: Watts is used to measure electrical power and amps is used to measure electrical current. An electrical appliance uses a current that’s measured in watts. For instance, most, common hairdryers use a current of 6.5 amps or 1500 watts.The material of the hookup cable is important because throughout all its use it’ll be outdoors so it needs to be able to withstand the natural UK elements which can often include spells of wind and rain. The best cables will be covered in a PVC sheath that gives it all-round protection. Note that you should only use the Polarity Reverse Adapter if it is definitely needed. Otherwise, you will have inadvertently created reverse polarity in your van! How many Amps are you using? It’s great to be at one with nature when you go camping, forgetting about work or what’s on the television that night and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside or making your own entertainment. However, it’s always important to have access to some kind of power supply to help get your camping essentials going – such as airbed pumps and an electric hook up for the electrics inside your caravan. Low-wattage appliances designed specifically for camping are readily available from outdoors suppliers.

Overall this is a strong, robust and durable cable. It has a water-resistant rating of IP44 to give you added peace of mind. In terms of safety, it conforms to BS 7671 and EN 60309 and is CE approved. Each power bollard (or EHU post) usually has one to four power connection points, although sometimes up to eight. One connection for each pitch.

Here comes the science bit. If you have always had trouble understanding what all the different terms mean, we’re here to help. Also supplied with the cable is a free cable reel which has an easy carry handle. This reel makes it easier to store away your cable when it’s not in use, with a robust design that’s built to last. This secondary power unit is only brought along on our trip if we have the drive-away awning with us.
