Who new you needed special cable adapters to connect your van to the mains?

I certainly didn’t.

The day before our first trip I new I had to charge my leisure battery and grabbed a normal domestic power cord and tried to connect it to the van input. Doh – it does not fit as the van has a 15 amp connection (male) which requires a matching power cable with the larger earth electrode.

Off to Bunnings I went, not knowing what i was looking for. I had to ask for assistance and was then told what I needed was not a simple adapter. The store was out of stock, so spent another 20 minutes heading off the the next store where I purchased an Ampfibian adapter.

Pleasingly it was made in Australia.
