Do I need electric hook-up to go on holiday?
You don’t need electric hook-up to enjoy a good holiday. In fact, equipping your van to survive without it gives you greater freedom and access to ‘hideaway’ sites.
Why do people hook up when they are traveling?
So hooking up is inevitable and if you are traveling, it is very easy to find a companion because they’re all feeling lonely. Some won’t admit it but it’s not really about the sex—it’s about what we feel inside.
Do I need hook-up to pitch my van?
Most caravanners prefer the reassurance and comfort of electrical hook-up when they pitch their van, but others enjoy going back to basics. ‘Why do it?’ I hear you cry. The main reason is the cost. Sites without hook-up and washrooms can cost as little as £6 per night, as opposed to the average of £15 per night on hook-up campsites.
Does everyone understand the rules of hooking up?
Loneliness eats you up slowly and when you don’t do anything about it, it gets worse. However, not everyone understands the rules of hooking up. I myself did not get it because I always felt the need of being attached to someone.
Do I need electric hook up for my caravan?
Electric hook up is a common requirement for some caravanners, however there are advantages to using your caravan without electric hook up (EHU).
What is an electric hook up?
Electric hook ups are designed for use in motorhomes, campervans, caravans and tents. The kit might be slightly different, but the principle remains the same - you are providing an electrical supply to your temporary home, whatever that may be.
Can you hook up electricity through the front of a tent?
If your tent has a cable entry point, feed you electric hook up lead through it rather than through the front door. It would be a trip hazard. Water and electricity do not mix, always keep the socket box off the floor of the tent. Electrical equipment should also be kept off the ground.
How much power do I need for an electric hook up?
Electric hook ups are generally rated as 6A, 10A or 16A, which equates to how much power they are able to provide. Some sites in Europe only offer 5A rated supplies. Think about how much power you will realistically need judging by the appliances you think you will be powering.
