Say a big hello to GC Designer BeauHudson (Sash and Roscoe) are on their Easter caravanning adventures with their three young children (Halen, Duke and Knox) right now!! Embarking on an adventure that will take them all around SE Queensland in a new New Age Caravan. Drool over their instagram account, keen photographers, the inspiration on their wall was breathtaking!! We are so excited for them and can’t wait to follow along with their stories!!
Ever wondered the correct tyre pressure for your New Age Caravan, rest assured we have developed a calculator for you to use. Before beginning, make sure you have gone and looked in the tunnel boot of your caravan and cited the compliance plate (you will need to note down the ATM on the compliance plate). Then go and look at the tyres on your caravan – you will need to note down the Max Tyre Pressure which is written on the wall of the tyre (in PSI).
Does your New Age Caravan have an NCE Smart TV? There are a few tips and tricks that we would like to share with you
The NCE Smart TV operates on 12V power (there is also a 240V power cord if you need it).
Ensure a 12V power supply is running to your caravan (the Drifter unit connected to your batteries near the door entry needs to be on).
Ensure the 12V power cord is connected to the TV at the back *before* plugging the cord into the caravan’s ceiling power point (which looks like a cigarette lighter). This often will prevent a fuse blowing.
For Free to Air TV, ensure you have erected your caravan antenna and the booster is on. Then plug your antenna cable from the caravan into the RF In point of the TV.
For Satellite TV, ensure you have erected your Satellite and the booster is on. Then plug your coaxial cable from the satellite/caravan into the Coax In point of the TV.
If a fuse has blown you will know because the power cord will not display a light and also the LED ceiling lights in your caravan will not be working. The fuse to replace in this instance is in the connecter of the power cord going into the roof.

Your New Age Caravan requires 10000km/Annual Services but between this period here are some preventative tips to help avoid those last minute panic situations that occur moments before you head off on your caravan holiday.
AES/Compressor Fridge: When your caravan’s fridge is not in use, it’s a good idea to wipe out the interior, dry it, and then to leave the door partially opened to prevent the occurrence of mould or smell.
Air Conditioner: Regularly inspect your air conditioner filters as wasp nests can form and if the filters clog, the air conditioner will struggle to operate especially in warm weather.
Hot Water Service (HWS) Anode: On a monthly basis inspect your anode in the hot water system. The anode is designed to corrode and depending on the condition of the water, this can occur rapidly or slowly. For more information on this click here.
Solar Panels: Roof mounted solar panels can get dirty and collect dust so regularly wipe down the panels with some warm soapy water which will aid in the improvement of solar electricity creation.
Diesel Heater: For those with off road caravans, the diesel heater is popular appliance, but bare in mind the fuel can go off over time and when travelling in tropical climates. For when the heater is not planned to be used for a long time drain all the diesel out of the tank. Run the heater until it runs out of fuel – it will turn off when it runs dry and won’t hurt it. Plug both the fresh air inlet pipe to the burner and the exhaust pipe. This will stop insects building nests in the pipes.
Awning: Like Solar panels, the awning can build up with dirt so wash the awning skin with warm soapy water. Leave the awning extended and only retract once clean and dry.
If you are planning on taking your caravan to cold locations such as the snow or Tasmania, fitment of a floor mounted heating unit is a great idea.
A standard caravan air conditioner will not
But what is best – Diesel or Gas powered heaters
There are benefits of both systems.
Gas powered heating like the Truma Vario Eco below is very quiet and features a carbon-monoxide monitor for your safety.
This features improved room temperature control, requires minimal maintenance and you can set to an actual temperature. This fan motor in the heater is stronger than previous models for serious off-road caravanning.
Diesel heaters such as above are thought to be more robust and slightly cheaper to run . They do make slightly more noise, from the air intake and exhaust (outside, underneath the van) when initially heating the van. The noise inside the van from a diesel heater is quieter than a 240volt electric fan heater and is certainly quieter than a reverse cycle air-conditioner.
Those that have a preference for a Diesel heater like the fact that it is running off it’s own power source. Bare in mind, Diesel fuel can go off in tropical climates so it is something to keep in mind.
