It's a matter of moments to carry out this check and whilst I understand the arguments which say it's not necessary, it certainly does no harm. if polarity is reversed on the alternating current at a french campsite, but all I am doing is charging my leisure battery, does it matter? Many a time on sites particularly in Spain I've found the electric hook up sockets are quite sparsely. Unlike UK plugs and sockets, they can be connected either way around, and there is no convention as to whether sockets have the live wired to the left or right receptacle.

We find that approaching half the sites we stay on don't have the new style hook ups and an adaptor is needed. Most countries use the standard round blue 3-pin socket for outdoor connections like campsites and aires. Best to carry an adaptor with a Schuko plug as that fits the French sockets as well as other Continental ones. However the challenge may be in older buildings, where only traditional Italian sockets are provided.Overall, a good and useful piece of kit, unfortunately arrived after I had left UK so never had the chance to make use of it on this occasion! I also have a 16A plug with a flying 13 amp socket, which I normally keep the neon tester plugged into so I can, as suggested, plug this directly into the bollard - with my Schuko / 16A socket if necessary. Countries nearby to the UK use either the French (reversed earth pin) or German/Spanish (double sliding earth contact).

All the UK adapters and hook up points appear to be 3 pin, and I'm told most modern sites abroad should be 3 pin as well now, however not all.

Just be slightly careful, a basic Schuko (German - Schutzkontakt) does not fit a French socket, and vice versa. Reverse polarity has the live supply coming in through the neutral wire into the appliance and out through the Live line.

Thanks, so that smaller adapter (on your link) just plugs into my main large expensive adapter from Go? This cannot however be relied upon, as many sockets are still wired the other way, and to further confuse matters, the Czech standard still recommends wiring the live to the left! Connect your caravan to the mains power via this European 2 pin socket mains cable which is also supplied with a splash proof 3 pin socket for UK travelling. We always carry a French / German adaptor cable as the type used on a site (or aire) is totally unpredictable. It's not so much that the supply is AC it's that we in the UK consider the 'neutral' to be at earth (ground) potential and usually only switch (disconnect) the 'live'.

The blue plug/socket system that we use is not waterproof so it is a good idea to carry something like a small rubble sack such that if two cables in series have to be used the mid-way connection can be protected from rain. This simple adaptor features a 2 pin continental plug and a mains site socket, allowing you to convert your caravan or camping mains lead for use on European caravan sites.
