Babbet if you look at the fuse box ( in the wardrobe?) you'll see ours are really high just like at home.

Very useful, so no making tea and toast and drying hair and nuking porridge whilst warming one's backside in front of an oil filled radiator then!

Thanks Maddy - yes, I know where our fuse box is (in wardrobe, but low down) but hadn't really thought about looking at it that closely until now, although we always switch it off when we leave the van! That's one of the good things about GS - peeps remind you to do things you hadn't thought of or had forgotten. Thanks again.

Especially not if you're stood starkers in the shower at the time!

Angie, I printed and laminated that list and have never tripped the fuse box since......! I keep the list in the front of our caravan book, for the rest of my electro-profligate family.....!

this is a great piece of onfo i too have made a note of this to take to mine when i go in a few weeks time.

i know every caravan is different as reguards internal lighting but does anyone know the average lighting amperage meaning to say at night with all the main lights on inc side / table lamps just to help work it out as all lights could be on with all or anyone of these appliances on at the same time inc an exernal light as on our park all external lights on caravans all come on at the same time but not sure if all parks do this

Hi Graham - you can work out the amperage by adding up the total wattage of all lamps in use, and dividing by 240 (normal domestic supply voltage) eg: our van has 12 x 40 watt bulbs so 12 x 40 = 480/240 = 2 amps consumption if all lamps on.
Re external lights, we have one with infra red movement sensor, which we can switch off completely. The park has "street lighting" which is independent of the vans (no doubt we all pay towards this through our site fees) Hope that helps.
