FAQ's

With our years of experience, we are asked lots of questions around what is needed in a conversion, so we thought it would be a good idea to answer these questions here...

What is the best way to power my new unit?

The answer is, whatever suits you best!

We will guide you through LPG appliances VS electrical appliances and find out what solution works best for you.

If you already have secured a permanent pitch or you have a regular pitch which allows access to mains electric, our units come with a 32-amp supply as standard.

You can use a generator with your unit, LPG generators or diesel generators are the ones you need to be looking at. Not sure which one you need? the best place to start is to decide what electrical appliances you plan to use in your unit, that gives you enough information to purchase the right generator for you and your business.

Not too keen on either of the above? No problem, we have experience in installing batteries into our conversions. Give us a call or drop us a message to discuss how you can be completely self-sufficient when trading.
