Electric hook ups

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.

The maximum cable length of 25 metres should ensure it can reach the supply bollard at most sites in the UK. Always uncoil the supply cable fully to avoid it overheating on a cable reel. The use of a second cable is not recommended, but if it is used it must be fitted with the same BS EN standard plug and connector.

What is an electric hook up?

The connection between the two cables should be raised off the ground by the use of a propriety joining cover. Taped cable joints and ordinary 13A household plugs and sockets must not be used under any circumstances.

The cable is normally coloured orange so that it is visible and avoids being damaged by grass cutting and other activities on site. Using electricity on a campsite When you connect to a campsite electric hook-up point you are able to receive an electricity supply as you would at home. Supply bollard A typical supply bollard A pitch with electrical hook-up will have an electrical supply bollard within about 20 metres. Connecting up A proprietary mains tester can be useful when camping abroad When you are ready to connect to your hook-up, make sure the RCD is in the off position and then connect your hook-up to your unit.

Only then should you connect to the campsite hook-up outlet. It is good practice to check the operation of the safety RCD device before turning on your appliances by switching on the RCD and pressing the test button. If it fails to operate the system will need to be checked by a suitably qualified person. As an extra check — especially if you are camping abroad — you can plug a proprietary mains tester into a socket to check the polarity of the supply and the presence of an earth connection see Camping on the continent.
