Hooking Up Popup Trailers

There are three types of campsites when you are traveling.

1. Dry
2. Partial Hook-up
3. Full Hook-up

The type of trailer you have will depend on the type of hook-up that you will need. If you are dry camping, then you won't be able to hook-up at all and you will depend on your deep cycle battery for electricity in your trailer. The deep cycle battery may be charged by a generator or by running your vehicle. Do be aware that generators are rather loud and your campground neighbors may not appreciate it if you run it all night.

Newer pop-up trailers are complete with showers, flushing toilets and sinks. This means that you will need both a water and electric hook-up, so you will require a full hook-up at your campground. Hooking up to electricity is very easy as you simply plug into the electrical source at the campsite.

Water is also easy as well. Be sure to use a water regulator on your trailer, as your plumbing is delicate. For some campsites you will use a water hose from a water spigot to hook-up to your trailer. This means that the water may come out with varying degrees of pressure. A water regulator will ensure that you get good water pressure without the water pressure from your water source busting a pipe somewhere in your trailer.

Enjoy your camping trip and hooking up popup trailers.
