This sensitive device will shut off all electric power to the electrical circuits in your system if it detects a problem, and you certainly shouldn't consider using an EHU in your tent without one. In the case of electrical hook ups, the second digit on the IP rating shown in the list below correlates to how effective the electric hook up is at being waterproof. You must take professional advice when using or considering installing electricity in your tent, or caravan. With this type of hook-up a button has to be pressed to release the supply cable plug.
This can be done relatively simply using sheets of acrylic cut to size, and can save masses of energy if fitted correctly.
#30 Electricity for campers and caravanners
Welcome Hello! In the case of reversed polarity, the supply enters your UK unit via the neutral instead of the live wire, and the appliance remains live even when switched off, so we recommend you also carry a polarity reverser. An inexpensive camping mains tester will verify that the supply is safe to use, a simple plug which shows at a glance the power supply status and polarity. To connect a CEE17 lead on these sites requires a lead with a two-pin continental plug at one end and a CEE17 blue socket at the other. Thank you! It is their site and their power supply after all.
