Minimum Car Requirements
All floats come with a 7 pin flat trailer plug. This can be changed to a 7 pin round trailer plug if required. Cars must have a live 2nd pin installed for all extended floats and floats with optional extras. A live 2nd pin or auxiliary wire is constant power from the car battery to the float. This powers all 12V components of these floats Eg: 12V fridge and water pump. If the car does not have a live 2nd pin installed, these accessories will not work.
All interior lights in our floats are run on the car head lights or the live 2nd pin depending on the model of float purchased.
All cars must be fitted with a in car electric brake controller.
