    Hi
    We have just purchased a camping washing machine, but will this be ok to use on hookup. I am worried that if we use it, it will blow a fuse, can anyone help? :Doh:
    Many thanks

    Hi

    It won't be a problem on a 16A UK hook up but we need more info from the data plate, total wattage or amps, to advise on use abroad.

    Sounds more than ok .., taking less than 1 Amp , run it anywhere you get a hook up ..

    We've got one of these in the back locker of our Rv got to say when Jan bought it I was dead against it but it has turned out to be a good bit of kit. She uses it for t shirts, underwear and light cloths, I just get a bucket of hot water to save our onboard water and away she goes.
    Don't use it often but when we do it's good

    We have the single tub washing machine type and it's very useful.
    SWMBO likes to wash things every other stop so it gets a lot of use and will work OK from the invertor as well.

    We have a built in washer/dryer, we only use it if we are away for more than a weekend. It is great and I know that when we go away for our summer holidays it will be invaluable! :BigGrin:

    :Cool: We have a Portable Washer and a Normal separate Spinner. Both work from our Inverter via Battery power. :Wink:
