Can I use a car battery on a caravan?

The short answer is no – it is not advisable.

Caravan batteries are made in a slightly different way. If you think about car batteries, they are designed to be used every day. Whereas a caravan battery (aka leisure battery) has been specifically designed to last longer without charge.

Why won’t my caravan mover work?

9 time out of 10 the reason for a caravan mover not working is one of the following problems:

  • Flat battery
  • Isolation switch not turned on
  • Rollers not engaged on to wheels

If it none of the above, contact your local caravan workshop as you may have an issue with your battery, battery charger or the mover itself.
