What To Do

To connect your Hoselink fitted hose to your caravan you will need to check what type of thread your caravan has at its water inlet point.

To do this, first locate the water inlet point on your caravan. Once you’ve found it, check what type of thread it has.  Please note some caravans use a BSP thread (typically used in Australia), while others use an NPT thread (US size thread).  Refer to the caravan manufacturer for further information regarding your van.
