Whale Easi-Slide Exterior Sockets
There are sockets all over the exterior of your caravan or motorhome. Electrical, water, BBQ, all sorts. Traditional sockets come with a flap style, hinged cover which can become damaged over time, especially if the cover gets taken by a strong wind. The covers can also look odd when sticking out over the socket, creating a bit of an eye-sore when you’re sat out in your awning. The good news is that the flap hinged cover is no longer the only option for your Whale sockets.
Whale have come up with the new Easi-Slide Sockets which look slick and stylish whilst also being practical and intelligent in their design. Manufactured in the UK and with many different varieties of socket to choose from, you’ve got plenty of ways to upgrade the sockets on your van to the latest Whale has to offer.
What makes Whale’s Easi-slide socket unique?
No more flapping in the wind – A sliding socket has no hinge and so will not be affected by any strong gusts of wind – no more flapping noises or damaged hinges.
Easy to open – The smooth sliding motion of the cover is easy and comfortable to use.
Secure closing – Simply slide the cover down and click it in place when not in use. When you have something installed in the socket, the lid will click into place securely to whatever is installed.
Sleek design – Your sockets will fit flush to the side of your caravan or motorhome when lifted, rather than sticking out. Meaning you get a uniform and aesthetically pleasing look to the outside of your van.
Weather protection – The sockets are waterproof and have been finished with a high quality, UV stabilised satin design, protecting it from sunlight damage.
Two colour options – Choose the socket that fits your van the best and pick from the two sophisticated options of white or grey.
Are the Whale Easi-Slide Sockets easy to fit?
If you already have a Whale socket installed:
The answer is: yes! These sockets should simply replace any existing Whale socket that you have installed. You will receive instructions in the bag and will just need some tools and mastic tape to secure the new socket back onto the vehicle. The sockets have a flat back for easy installation and the lid just slides on and clicks into place.
Please note that it is highly recommended that you check with your dealer if any changes may invalidate any warranties on your vehicle.
If you are installing a whole new Whale socket:
This will involve drilling a hole into your van. A mounting template is included in the package with the socket but we highly recommend seeking help from a retailer before drilling into your van or installing a new system.
