When we tour we love the feeling of getting away...getting away from the job, those bits on the house that need doing but never quite get done, get away from the area we live in and love but we need to escape from time to time. But getting away from the mundanity of everyday life doesn't necessarily mean that we want to shed the vestiges of comfort that we need to keep us happy. Which is why the electrical and energy set-up of our 'van or motorhome is such a crucial aspect of our touring holidays. Now, some of us require a fair number of caravan appliances to keep us happy (go on, admit it!) and pack all manner of devices to ease the strain...hair dryers, tablets and laptops here we come! And, of course, to run these appliances, which run on DC, 240v current from our leisure batteries or other 12v or 24v energy sources, we require a caravan inverter to change DC to AC and make things work!
Inverters enable you to bring your appliances from home without having to double up by having to buy 12v camping products for use in your 'van. Why buy two kettles, when you can tour with your kettle from home? Why buy and struggle with a 12v travel iron?
Choose a WAECO Caravan or Motorhome inverter
The Waeco 12v inverters we stock on Leisureshopdirect are basically high quality portable power sockets These 12v to 240v inverters are well named 'PocketPower' as they come in an incredibly compact size ideal if you are looking to space save in your 'van and if you've got one eye on keeping the weight down for safer towing. Mount them on a wall, alongside the driver's seat or on the side of a cupboard and you'll hardly notice their existence. If you are looking to run more energy-guzzling devices and appliances like toasters or kettles in your 'van, the you might want to go for a model like the
Waeco PerfectPower Inverter PP 550watt which has a continuous 1000 watt output.
If, once you have installed your caravan inverter, you fancy browsing the230v equipment we stock on our website, go ahead! Of course with all of this energy consumption, you might want to top up your battery or generate some power of your own from mother nature...look at our pages on Caravan Solar Panel Kits for some inspiration.
