Caravanning in Auckland, New Zealand
I stay at two different Auckland campgrounds in the caravan so I can work in the city. I share what my days are like taking the bus into town. I meet 2 of my Patreons and have a work cat on my lap all day. I share my thoughts on what caravanning in a city while working is like.
Driving to Auckland & Getting Caravan Battery Checked
I end up reversing 3 times in one day. 3 times! I drive to Auckland, stopping at AA Solar to check my battery set-up. Since upgrading from 95ah to 390ah, I have found the batteries to not be as powerful as I expected. The technician figures out what was wrong.
Installed Voltage Sensitive Relay, Moved Locations & Tested Caravan Shower
A mechanic at the campground had a spare VSR (voltage sensitive relay). I've been wanting to have an alternative to my solar panel. And I timed it well as the weather turned very cold. My car window even iced over. I then move to a POP (park over property) closer to town for a few days and test out my shower! I'm really not a fan of it.
Fixing Caravan Door Latch, Friction Pads & Reflective Light + Cleaning Exterior
A busy time with all the caravan odd jobs to finish before winter really starts. There are so many broken parts on the caravan I decided to try and start shrinking the 'to do' list. I have managed to replace the broken door latch, replace my very old ALKO friction pads, replace my lost caravan reflective light and give the caravan a good clean.
Bought An Awning & Sorting Caravan Accessories Stored In My Car
I'd planned to get an awning before winter and finally spotted one for sale on Trademe. The owner had used it once and realised it was the wrong size for his caravan. In this video I show how easy it is to put together... it really is like a tent. I also sort out my car boot, move the spare tyre from the back seat and show my extra accessories.
Fibreglass Caravan Wheel Arch Installed & Holes Fixed
Finally finishing fixing all the problems I had with the flat tyre. I’ve been struggling to find a replacement wheel arch or spat as shipping from the UK was extremely expensive! I was curious to know how much a caravan wheel arch would cost made from fibreglass and found a company in the Hawkes Bay area. They wanted me to bring in the other side’s wheel arch and turns out they already has a very similar mould!
