What size generator will I need?

We recommend a Honda 2KVA. 2000 watt minimum output is recommended

Do I need 2 x spare wheels?

Obviously, being prepared for any situation is best and we cannot predict how many flat tyres or punctures an individual may encounter. As there is no power to the wheels (unlike a car), one spare is generally enough to get you safely to where you need to go and out of any sticky situation.

Will my fridge run on 12V?

Yes and no. The fridge will run on gas, for example if you are free camping. If 240v is not available, then you need to use gas. The 12v setting is for travelling, as the vehicle generally supplies power to the fridge ensuring your contents is still cold when you get to your destination. 12v will help to maintain a cool temperature, but will not cool the fridge.

How often should I have my van serviced and where do I take it?

First service is 1,500km or 3 months. Then every 10,000kms or 6 months You can take your caravan for its service to any certified caravan repair centre in Australia. Please contact warranty for a list of servicing centres.

What does the fridge fan do?

At Supreme, we run one vent down low behind the fridge and a 100mm duct connects to the other vent on the roof (as opposed to installing two vents at the back of the fridge). Hot air rises naturally, so the fan helps to move the air away from the fridge and provide better operation.
