FAQ Electrical equipment
I drive food around and wash the vehicle frequently. I get condensation on my power plug 14. What should I do?
The easiest and most radical thing is to install an electric heating coil inside the plug to keep it free from condensation. You can easily connect it between the parking light and earth. At the same time you should regularly use a special oil, like VBG Electro Oil. This will give you the best contact between the plugs.
On my trailer I feel as if power plug 14 is a lot stiffer to connect than before. Should it be?
Unfortunately there could be a fault on your plug. A small number delivered in August didn’t meet up to the quality requirements. They can jam, and in the worst case the contact bar in the box can break. If you have a plug like this, replace the insert and put in a claim for the old one. If the contact bar has broken, put in a claim for the complete box.
