The Best Electronics & Plumbing Essentials for Camping or Caravanning

Camping, caravanning or glamping? No matter which way you look at it, getting out of the city and into nature is a great way to enjoy the fresh air. It’s also a great excuse to bring out all those camping gadgets that have been gathering dust in the garage and get them fired up again. Whether you call it glamping or go back to basics, there are plenty of ways to enjoy time outdoors without giving up the luxuries from home.

If your only experience of camping is pitching a tent by the side of a river with nothing but nature for company, then maybe it’s time for an upgrade. With these Everything Caravan & Camping electronics and plumbing essentials for camping or caravanning you can have the best of both worlds.

Grab A Portable Shower

Not a lot of people think about this, but when you’re camping showers can be very limited. If you’re lucky, there might be a communal shower block at the campsite, but if you’re off in the wilderness and you don’t have your own private hot tub, you could be looking at a quick sponge down or a trip to the local swimming pool.

A portable shower takes up very little space in the car and can make all the difference to your enjoyment of life on the road. We’re not talking about a high-pressure power shower here that can take a long time to heat up and wastes a lot of water – but a portable shower that uses a few litres of water per minute and runs off mains or propane power.

Don’t Forget The Toilet Roll!

Again, this might seem like a silly inclusion on a list of essentials for camping, but if you’ve ever had to search through bushes, you’ll know that this is one thing you can’t skimp on. You might be fine with using leaves, but others in your party might not be so keen, so a supply of toilet roll is a necessity.

A Battery-Powered Fan

You might not want to go camping in the desert, but even in the middle of a forest, temperatures can soar. Not only can hot weather put a dampener on your outdoor adventures, but it also threatens the health of your children. A battery-powered fan can make all the difference to comfort and sleeping in warm weather. It can also be a lifesaver for those nights when the weather turns and a thunderstorm hits.


Electronic Tools For The Camper

If you enjoy tinkering and you’ve got your own tools, then take them along on your camping adventures! If you’re not an avid gearhead, however, it could be worth investing in a few key pieces of electrical equipment – even if you just use them for camping. A multimeter can be a great piece of camping equipment to have on hand – it allows you to test for current, voltage and continuity.


You can also measure the resistance of components by using a multimeter. A power supply unit or computer power supply can be used to power up appliances that may otherwise trip a circuit breaker. A continuity tester can be used to check for broken wires.

A Caravan Is Your Friend

This is a big one for the more serious camper. If you’ve got a big group that wants to get together for some outdoor fun, a caravan is an obvious choice. Caravans are spacious, comfortable and can be easily towed – offering a lot more room than a tent and a bed for everyone. A caravan, however, requires some plumbing essentials.

To get fresh water and run a toilet, you’ll need a supply of power that can run off a battery. If you’re using a gas or electric-powered generator, you’ll also want to be careful of running it in a confined space, so we’d recommend getting a carbon monoxide detector.


The Importance Of Rubbish Removal

If you’re camping for a long time, you’re going to need somewhere to store your rubbish – and if you’re lucky, you’ll have a compost heap to throw things into or a public bin. A lot of people think that a bag in the woods is good enough, so they throw all their trash out of the car and into a big pile on the ground. Respect the area you are in and take your rubbish with you.


There are many reasons to go camping. If you’re looking for a break from your busy life, or want to try something different, camping is a great option. With these essential electronics and plumbing essentials for camping or caravanning you can have the best of both worlds enjoying the great outdoors without giving up the luxuries from home.
