What is a caravan mains converter lead and why would you need one?

You know the end of your mains that plugs into the EHU on site? Every thought it would be a good idea if you could plug your caravan into the electrics at home? Maybe to enable you to have the fridge on before you go on a trip, or even the have the heating on low during the winter?

Well, this little lead s the answer to your prayers. You plug you caravan lead into the caravan on end and the other into this lead, then plug the three pin plug in at home as you do any other device.

We’ve used one for years and plug the caravan in a couple of days before a trip to power the fridge, so that we can load food in before we go. It also always you to have the lights on when popping into the caravan when it’s at home.

Experienced caravanners that are still learning!Our first caravan was a Knaus which we bought from Germany in 2006. After this we bought a Autotrail Motorhome, but sold that to build a house. Once that was done we went back to a caravan, a Sterling Eccles, which we recently part-ex'd for a Bailey Unicorn.
