Operation of the refrigerator in the motorhome

Na liście każdego podstawowego wyposażenia kampera i przyczepy kempingowej musi znaleźć się lodówka - bez niej wszak trudno wyobrazić sobie (przede wszystkim latem) nawet te bliższe wojaże. Ponieważ w swojej konstrukcji lodówka "mobilna" może znacząco różnić się od rozwiązań, jakie spotykamy w naszych domach, warto wiedzieć, jak z nią postępować. Podczas podróży lodówka poddawana jest wielu obciążeniom i wyzwaniom. Pojazdy rekreacyjne nagrzewają się bowiem dużo szybciej niż budynki, są narażone na wstrząsy - ogólnie należy przyjąć, że trudniejsze warunki eksploatacji powodują, że takie urządzenie musi być specjalnie przystosowane do montażu i użytku w pojeździe. Ze względu na fakt, że często lodówki turystyczne mogą być zasilane z różnych źródeł (gazu, źródła prądu stałego 12V, źródła prądu zmiennego 230V) również tu pojawia się szereg potencjalnych problemów,z którymi poradzić muszą sobie urządzenia. Zanieczyszczone przewody gazowe, kiepskiej jakości gaz, wahania napięcia - lodówka w kamperze czy przyczepie nie ma lekkiego życia.

Caravanning clubs - what for and for whom?

Karawaning i podróże są obecnie na topie – to chyba wszyscy wiemy. Z każdej strony otaczają nas fora dotyczące turystyki, kempingów i karawaningu.

We buy a motorhome / trailer - part 1

Often, in the articles we publish, we talk about the resale value of specific brands and models. We also analyze the purchase prices and compare them with other models. Seemingly very similar structures can be divided by the price gap, and often 10-year-old structures reach prices of new ones - similar at first glance. Today we will deal with the price differences. Why? If you are just entering the world of motorhomes and caravans and planning to buy your first vehicle, it is worth knowing the most important differences as well as facts and myths about the most important "price-generating" factors.

For this purpose, we choose safe parking spaces, we purchase additional AC insurance for unexpected circumstances. Often we do not even want to imagine that our gems could become the object of interest ... to amateurs of someone else's property. While preparing for this article, I tried to find out about the theft data from caravans in Europe. It is difficult to find precise statistics, but the lead is the United Kingdom, where a total of hundreds of them are lost each year (distributor of tracking devices for vehicles - Moving Intelligence maintains that it is up to 4,000 items a year, but does not support this data with officially confirmed reports, e.g. police). Last year, our western neighbors had several dozen motorhomes and caravans. However, comparing the year-on-year phenomenon, taking into account the increased demand for recreational vehicles, accessibility problems and horrendous prices, it is not difficult to predict that this scourge could grow stronger. Information from motorhome / caravan owners about the loss of a beloved vehicle appears on social media forums at least once a week. The mere awareness of the disappearance of our second home is a traumatic experience, and the chances of recovery as everyone knows ...
