Additionally, the hot water system is connected to an automatic heat exchanger to heat the water via the vehicle’s cooling system to 65ºC. A Projecta Lithium Smart Charger is automatically activated when the vehicle is connected to 240V AC Mains Power. The vehicle is fitted with an external shower, spot lights on every door, wind-out awning with LED lighting, external table, rear 2 bike carrier, TV antenna, reversing cameras, 80 CH UHF Radio, Bullbar, 7” CREE Driving lights, fog lights and an electronic burglar alarm.
