At CaravanTimes we get sent lots of press releases about new products and companies hoping we will cover their new products and you, our audience, will run out or race online and buy that product. Our policy is to cover any of these we think are genuinely interesting, amusing, innovative or quirky. So when we received a press release from Whale about some new sockets, connectors and switches we got typing!
The reason we are so excited is that for the first time you get get these products fitted to your existing caravan or motorhome. Meaning if you want these features you don't have to change your caravan.
We all love our caravans and motorhomes. We make them our little homes from home, we share memories together but for most of us our caravan or motorhome has become part of the family. That's why deciding to trade in or even just swapping your caravan can be a difficult decision. But with new innovation driving the industry we've all been onsite and seen another camper washing their dog outside with an outside shower, or hooking up their gas BBQ through an external and thought "I wish I had that". Now you can without having to trade in your motorhome or caravan.
The list below is direct from Whale's press release but we think this is genuinely interesting.
Information on the sockets available:-
Mains Electric Out Socket
The easy access mains outlet socket includes a UK 3 pin which allows you to hook up electrical appliances to a 13-amp rating such as power tools, lighting, TVs, or games consoles. The Easi-Slide lid can be completely closed when in use, weatherproofing the unit against the elements.
Multimedia 3 in 1 Socket
The Whale Multimedia Socket can supply a TV aerial and Satellite as well as providing a 12v d.c. outlet socket to power or charge your devices.
Isolator Switch Socket
The Whale Isolator Switch allows you to cut the power to your appliances, saving valuable battery life whilst on the road.
External BBQ Outlet Socket
The gas BBQ outlet is ideal for supplying barbecues using your LPG (propane and butane) on board gas supply. With a simple one-handed operation and straightforward connection, external gas appliances can be quickly connected to the gas tap. Safety coupling is included to ensure that gas can only be turned on when safety coupling is connected.
Water Out Socket
The Water Out Socket can be used with the Whale detachable exterior Compact Shower for washing down your van, bicycles, or pets. This socket is to be used with cold freshwater only.
Motorhome Filler Socket
The Motorhome Filler Socket allows you to directly fill your on-board water tank with a unique secure hose clip that keeps the pump in place during filling. This socket is designed to incorporate a lock on the lid to protect your water supply and a vent pipe to prevent airlocks. The Motorhome Filler Socket is suitable for use with the Whale Portable Pump Kit and should again only be used with cold freshwater.
Motorhome Filler Socket + 12V Socket
This new Easi-Slide socket is the first of its kind in the UK RV market. It incorporates a unique 2 in 1 design which includes a 12V pump power supply and Motorhome fill all-in-one. The secure hose clip keeps the pump in place during filling and the lid incorporates a lock to protect your water supply. A vent pipe has been included to ensure the tank is vented at all times preventing airlocks. Suitable for use with the Whale Superfil pump kit, it is to be used with cold freshwater only.
Water In Socket
The current Whale Water In Socket has been added to the new Easi-Slide Exterior Utilities Socket range. This socket provides an easy way to supply your vehicle with fresh water using the Whale Watermaster exterior pump or Watermaster Mains water hook up.
