Hiya guys,many thanks for advice I received on purchasing my first tent and are hoping you can help again?
It's my first time camping and have been told the pitch comes with electric hook up..... help.
I would be very interested in the hook up but could anyone assist in what I need to purchase to allow me to use hook up for my tent
Hoping as always you can help camping friends 😁 ⛺

As previously noted safety features are of prime importance

Also try to get as long a lead as possible. I think ours is 20m which is fine, a campsite we are going to later in the year recommends a 25m due to location EHU points but I don't think that's common, and luckily on that trip we aren't using EHU.

We set ourselves up for EHU but rarely use it now - the hookup is nice to have for slightly out of season camping
