Camping mains hook up

Remember that camping on site using a V electricity supply within caravans, motorhomes and tents requires even more care than in the home. Because your unit is mobile there is a greater likelihood of things going wrong with an electrical installation than with the fixed installation within your house.

It is therefore important you make sure your cables and equipment are maintained in good condition by simple checks every time you use it, by regular inspections by a qualified technician and also by using it in a sensible way. Campsite owners and management team in the case of the Club, the Club and its Holiday Site Managers are responsible for the safety of the electrical supply equipment up to the socket outlet on the site bollard where you connect your hook-up cable.

A pitch with electrical hook-up will have an electrical supply bollard within about 20 metres. Each Club hook-up bollard is individually protected against overload by a miniature circuit breaker MCB and a residual current device RCD. The MCB is a device to protect the site cabling from overloading and limits the amount of current you can draw from the supply. Hook-ups on Club sites have maximum ratings of 10A or 16A and this will limit the number of appliances you can use at one time see the How much power section.

The RCD is designed to cut off the supply if a fault occurs in your connecting lead, caravan or other camping unit.

However, to maximise safety your unit should have its own RCD. Do not allow children to play around the hook-up installation or supply cable or allow them to connect or disconnect supplies. At Club Sites the supply cable plug is simply a push fit into the bollard socket, but you will find some sites with hook-ups that require the plug to be pushed in and then twisted.

With this type of hook-up a button has to be pressed to release the supply cable plug.

Your connecting lead will need a plug to match this socket outlet and a connector to match the inlet to your unit, both complying with BS EN It is common however to find lesser cables where each core is only 1. This can be confirmed on the outer PVC covering of the cable where it should be marked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tonnie from A must have a necessary piece of kit to connect the hook up lead to the house supply in order to charge up before setting out on a trip.
