Well spotted, good idea, I keep one of these plugged-in in the van permanently ... you just never know with site electrics ... UK or abroad!

Must admit that I used to use one of these religiously whilst abroad, however, on the last three trips it has not come out of the drawer and I have not had a single issue in either Spain or France. Maybe I have just been lucky? but I do remember reading somewhere that reverse polarity is not a big issue, I am no electrician so I would not know.

That's an excellent price for retail. I might grab one myself, since I don't know where my last one went.

They can be had for less - £2.24 each from CPC, though I expect there's delivery on top of that. It might be worth doing if you wanted several to share around, or if you're putting an order in with them anyway.

    • Sizing an awning

      OK thanks - I'll try that and see if it's anywhere near the 1050cm I believe it to be based on the caravan size (assuming that THAT's correct lol).

      Quite right, the beading length is not the one dictating the size.  The "A" dimension is from the ground back to the ground on the opposite side. As the awning's sides themselves don't quite  touch the ground, but stand about 5 cm above it, I would measure it along the van face edge as follows. From the lowest corner of the LH side panel right round along the beading to the lowest corner of the RH side panel,. Then to this add 10 cm for the "ground standoff" 5 cm each side to get the "A" size.   [Practically It could be easier to measure to a centre seam if that is a feature of the awning, and double that plus adding on that 10 cm.]
