Do I need 2 x spare wheels?
Obviously, being prepared for any situation is best and we cannot predict how many flat tyres or punctures an individual may encounter. As there is no power to the wheels (unlike a car), one spare is generally enough to get you safely to where you need to go and out of any sticky situation. Plug repair kit is a recommended item.
Will my fridge run on 12V?
12/24 Volt DC Compressor Fridges only in the Caravans
These fridges run exclusively on 12/24 volts DC which means that the fridge runs at full efficiency at all times including travelling. Unlike the 3 way fridges the 12 volt power supply for compressor fridges comes from the caravan batteries (no hot wire is required from the trailer plug).
The 12 volt compressor fridges are dependent on a good 12 volt power source that necessitates an integral 12 volt battery system within the caravan. Importantly, consideration
will have to be given as to what additional systems are in place to maintain correct battery charge. This presents no problem when there is a 240 volt power supply available such as found in caravan parks, as the caravan electrical system incorporates an automatic battery charger. Similarly whilst motoring, the towing vehicle’s electrical system can be modified to provide charge to the caravan battery system. However, in an unserviced location (bush camp) solar power will be required to maintain the correct battery/s charge.
When stationary without access to 240 volt power, the battery system will require supplementary charging. This could take the form of solar panels and also possibly a backup compact generator. Compact, lightweight, efficient generators that are extremely quiet in operation are readily available. The operation of such generators may be restricted by local rules and regulations of the area in which you are camped. Remember, if solar power is to be relied on then the solar panels need to be in sunlight, so camping under a shady tree is not an ideal situation.
