Yes, used sensibly that should be fine.

(There's probably already a link elsewhere on this thread to this advice sheet from the C&CC.)

Just been into my local Aldi in Leeds and the lady was reducing their Semloh Mobile Mains Power Units from 34.99 to 17.99.  Not sure if it's national but she did say that she was away to change it on the computer.

Can't find link to it on Aldi website but it's the same as this one being sold on eBay

Funnily enough that idea did cross my mind but they weigh loads so postage costs could be high

I have got a 3 socket extension with rdc would a 1300w halogen oven be ok with it if I was running nothing else?

Not if the site supply is 5a, no.

1300w is about 5.6a.

What extension? A *proper* EHU, or an extension plugged into an EHU, or plugged straight into the pitch supply?

I bought this from Halfords after reading the advice in this thread.  When we tried it out a few weekends ago the red light came on.  I assumed this meant it was 'on' but after reading the information leaflet (I know I should have read it first...!) I saw that the light being on meant there was a fault.  Hubby said it was fine but I don't want to risk using it again if we have a faulty EHU - I had read about reverse polarity on here and wondered if that was the cause of the light but I thought that only happened outside the UK - can anyone shed some light on this for me.  I really don't want to use it again but not sure what to say to Halfords if it is faulty without sounding like I don't know what I am talking about!

Does the red light come on if you plug it in to a different socket fed from a different supply?
If it doesn't then I suspect that it may be a reversed polarity indicator.
Reverse polarity is quite common in the domestic situation in the UK where DIYers have incorrectly wired sockets, but it shouldn't happen on a UK campsite.

Hi Saxo1.  We only tried it there but we are camping again in a few weeks so will see if I can plug it in there to test it.  When I say I will plug it in, I mean hubby. I don't want any shocks

You could get one of these and test it at home to pt your mind at rest:

Probably cheaper elsewhere if you search.
