All caravan parks are required by law, to demand 15 amp cords and plugs.
For tent camping, I would strongly advise using same.(purchased at any Bunnings hardware store)
Point to note, at caravan parks with such power outlets, right next to your plug area where you plug in your power cord, you will find a CIRCUIT BREAKER, (fuse in old language) in early parks these were only fuses, but more modern parks they are also fitted with earth leakage detectors,(meant to save lives if short circuit occurs.NOT ALL PARKS ARE FITTED WITH THESE DEVICES
, thus I advocate purchasing one from Bunnings again,(No, I do NOT
have shares with them, wish I did though
) fit this between your extension and power consuming device.
I bought a POWER BOX
,(Yep, from Bunnings) this has FOUR
outlets, one earth leakage device, and one circuit breaker, thus safely protecting anything I plug into it. It's also rated as weather proof, NOT WATER PROOF
, (there IS a difference.)
We use power for boiling water fast for a cuppa, and for the bread maker as well as the electric frying pan.
Give serious thought to using an electric frying pan, you'd be amazed at the uses you can use it for, from a humble barbacue during a fire ban, to cooking a roast with veges, or even you loaf of bread.
If intending to use electric fry pan, it helps touse a large sized wooden cutting board underneath, to save your work bench getting scorched and fry pan slipping all over the place.
As when powered up the give off a vibration and tend to move all over the place, maybe even tip your meal onto the ground and burn somebody.
But all in all, they are a God send for us at any rate.
