Our vehicles operate on ancillary battery systems which power internal appliances such as the fridge, lights, television and water pump.
The batteries only recharge when connected to mains power or will trickle charge when driving the vehicle. We recommend that the vehicle is plugged into Mains power every 2 nights. Idling the engine won't provide enough power to recharge the house battery.
When you are connected, all equipment automatically runs on mains power rather than the battery. Appliances such as the microwave, rear air-conditioning and power points only run on mains power. Television may run either on 240v (mains power) or 12v (battery power).
For the 12 Volt system to work, the 12 Volt main switch must be in the 'on' position. All vehicles can be connected to 240 Volt mains power via the supplied 15 Amp extension lead with large earth pin. All approved caravan park circuits are rated at 15 amps.

We would like to help you avoid toll fines by purchasing a toll package at the time of pick up. Once you travel through the toll road, you will no longer be able to pay directly to the toll company. Apollo Motorhome Holidays will be invoiced and you will need to pay the $75 administration fee as well as the cost of the toll if you have not purchased the toll package or set up your own pass and advised us of this prior to pick up. The Toll Package has a value of $50 but as our guest you pay only $39. We also offer an automatic top up on your credit card for another $39 once you have reached $50.01 worth of toll crossings.
