Setting Up Camp


We both have our own tasks to do when we set up camp in a new campsite. Pete tends to do all of the outside jobs – now would they be the heaviest I wonder? I pretend to keep myself busy inside putting everything back in it’s correct place. We wouldn’t want “CHAOS” (a family joke) in the van would we? Then we are both ready to relax and enjoy our new surroundings.

Setting Up Camp:

    • Align the van North-South for best solar generation
    • Level the van

  • Chock wheels before lowering the jockey wheel
  • Detach caravan from car
  • Connect sullage hose
  • Check the site power outlet for correct polarity
  • Connect the power lead
  • Switch inverter on
  • Master power switch on
  • Water pumps turned on
  • Align the TV aerial
  • Set up TV
  • Set up awning
  • Set up chairs and table
