The 4WD camper that we are hiring for our Gibb River Road/Kimberley trip relies on 240V for the Engel to get cold - there isn't a back up system. It apparently isn't connected to the battery/electrics of the van in order to charge whilst the vehicle is running like they often do.
So my question is - which camping places along the Gibb River Road offer power (roughly within the itinerary outlined below) so that we can get the Engel cold or do we have to rely on ice??
We only need power every couple of nights - we actually prefer bush camping too.
We are flying in and out of Broome and "ideally" will visit Windjana Gorge, (1st night) then continue thru the Gibb River Road stopping for nights at Mornington WS (2) , Drysdale River Station, Mitchell Falls (2), Ellenbrae, El Questro, Kununurra, Bungle Bungle, Halls Creek, Willare Bridge, then up the Bedunburra Road to Cape Leveque for the last night.
Do the APT camps offer power? If so - where are they again?
You may have already mentioned this in your book but I have missed it.
We have found your e-book invaluable whilst planning our trip through the Kimberleys!!!
