Caravan movers offer the most practical way of moving your caravan without putting you and your caravan under stress.
They comprise two electric motors that engage rollers which press against the caravan wheel. Movement is then controlled by a remote control.
The following must be considered when choosing an electric caravan mover:
- The weight of our caravan. All movers are not designed for the same weight so you must check that your caravan weight does not exceed 1300kg. There are different models for different weights.
- A battery must be installed to power the mover. There is usually no space shortage in our caravans but it must be taken into account.
- A charger must also be installed for this battery. Prolonged use of the mover causes the battery to discharge and needs to be recharged.
- Installation of a battery disconnector switch is highly recommended. Disconnecting battery power prolongs battery life during long idle periods.
- Attaching the motors to the caravan wheel can be done manually with a cam wrench or automatically with the electric mover remote control.
Generally, the speed of movers does not exceed five or seven km / h. A higher speed is not required and can actually be dangerous. Sufficient speed is provided by the mover to take your caravan out of your garage or to manoeuvre on a camp site.
Maintenance is minimal. Simply keep the battery sufficiently charged sufficient and grease the motor axles once a year.
The most important thing is NOT TO TOW THE CARAVAN WITH ELECTRIC MOVERS ATTACHED TO THE CARAVAN WHEELS.
There are many brands of caravan movers. It is not a simple matter of buying the biggest and most expensive caravan mover. You must have a compatible model to meet your exact needs.
