    Can I use one of these to run my Endless Breeze Fan when on EHU?

    Why not install a cigar lighter socket near where you will use the fan? You can use it all the time then, even on the move if you have a dog to cool as we do. :)

    He doesn't have water when on the move, it tends to spill out on the bends! Been there, done that when we've forgotten to empty the bowl after a stop. But he is offered water every time we stop. He then goes to sleep within seconds of the vehicle starting.
    I believe you can gerbil type feeders for cages but he seems happy with the current regime.

    Sure, what ever you are doing is right for you and working, didn't want you to think I was suggesting otherwise. We saw these bowls mentioned on fun and found it so useful for our Ruby (who we sadly lost last September). I just thought I would pass the tip on as we used one at home too, saved the kids always kicking the water bowl over.

    I know from your lovely holiday blogs how much Charlie means to you and the top quality love and care you provide him. (y)

    Yes on low (1.18 Amp) and medium (1.62 Amp) but for high (2.58 Amp) you need a 12v 2.6A output or greater, the one on eBay is only rated at 2 Amp.

    I wasn't criticising! I hadn't seen those bowls before but will have a look when we get back and probably buy one. Many thanks for the link!

    I'm puzzles why you would want to. All MHs have a battery charger that tops up the battery so you just plug into the normal leisure battery sockets.

    Our MH only has one 12v socket which is in the cab,so assumed using that would drain the van battery??
    It does however have 240v sockets perfectly positioned for the endless breeze so thought it would be simpler in the short term to use an adaptor until we have extra 12vs fitted.

    Yes, you are right. You can certainly use a 240V adapter. Just be wary of the current rating but we've never had ours on speed 3 so I suspect a smaller one would work but a properly rated one would be preferable.

    Think I will go for one rated at 10A which I have seen on Amazon.
    Thanks everyone.

    That is unusual. But considering just how useful, for charging things, a 12V socket is and the parts cost little, it's worth think about fitting one or two.

    not all 12v sockets look like cigar sockets. some are 2 flat pins. often found near the aerial socket for tv
