For happy Christmas-New Year camping don't forget. . .

Nothing works like being prepared when it comes to happy camping. So before take-off GoSee takes time to pitch camp in the front yard. The benefits are immediate. The amazed looks on the faces of passers-by make the day and we hit the road with almost all we needed.

There is a lot to think of which does not come standard. We add:

A 15 amp power cord to fit park safety systems and keep shocks out.

A beverage grade hose to hook to the mains pressure water connection and the special fittings

which screw it on to the exterior connection.

Four broad, flat wooden blocks to place under the campers stabilizer legs.

Four solid wooden chocks for the campers wheels.

A small spade and axe.

Tool and battery drill kits.

Two comfortable folding camp chairs. Bedding with both hot and cold nights in mind.

A door mat.

A bucket.

Insect repellent

Electric kettle, cups, steamer-pot, frying pan, plates and cutlery.

Barbecue implements and a really good sharp carving knife.

Torch and matches.

Corkscrew for traditional wine drinkers and, yes, we forgot to pack the can opener.

The day before we leave we fill the water tank/tanks and switch on the refrigerator on 240 volt AC mains power and let it run overnight. We load it with food and drinks next morning when it has achieved optimum cold levels.

The three GoSee Jayco caravan fridges are three phase, 240 volt AC, LPG and Direct Current from the towing vehicle. Or Off. Make your choice and turn the dial.

If gas is the choice first turn on the gas bottle for the camper/caravan/ RV. Go inside to the refrigerator and hold down the gas flow button and hit the spark switch. When it lights the gas the small read-out dial on the fridge will move into the green segment.

LPG gets things cold quickest, but it is dangerous and MUST NOT be used in campers unless the campers roof is fully raised and there is plenty of ventilation. The plenty of ventilation applies generally to all RV's. It will also help with preventing condensation. Mildew under matresses is a health hazard. Do not, for any reason use an outdoor heater indoors. There have been too many deaths in Australia and New Zealand already from this misuse of heating equipment.Better to be cool than stone cold.

Be certain all refrigerator cooling vents inside and outside the camper are clear. DO NOT COVER THEM with tape, covers or any kind of plate while camping.
