Do Camper Trailers Have Electricity?
Camper trailers, also known as caravans are RVs towed behind a road vehicle. Whether or not a camper trailer has electricity fully depends on the type of camper trailer, and the choice of the owner—for camper trailers that are not fitted with electricity.
More modern camper trailers do come with built-in electrical systems. RVs have two categories of devices that use electricity: the AC and DC devices.
DC—Direct Current—devices are basically the devices which use up energy from the battery. They include lights, vent fans, etc. And are usually found in the road vehicle part of the caravans. These devices do not consume much energy and are needed for usage by the operator of the road vehicle.
The AC—Alternate Current—devices are mostly the ones found in the camper trailers. They include Air conditioners, heaters, microwaves, etc.
These facilities do not run off the car battery but instead, they require a much larger, external power source which could be a generator or a nearby house. Also, solar panels are now more popular with modern Camper trailers.
