The campers who have tried, that their caravan came into beating by how uncomfortable it is, and fortunately many escaped with the unpleasant experience. Other campers where the caravan has come in the beating have been exposed to their caravan overturned.
What can you do, to avoid beating around the caravan – Or avoid the caravan running unstable, and easily influenced when cars overtake your caravan or crosswind o.s.v…
First of all you should check whether your caravan is equipped with the following:
• Varevogns dæk (Also called as 6-8 ply tires).
If your caravan is equipped with the above and you still have trouble beating or unstable driving with caravan, you should check the following:
|That your stabilisator's brake linings are worn down.|
|The underbody of the caravan properly lubricated. see also. this link: Lubrication of caravan - Click here to read more about lubrication of the caravan|
|That your tow hitch (only bullet) must be clean and free of grease. Towing with dacrometbelægning (mat, silver rust protective layer) and lacquered consecutive balls, the coating must be completely removed with abrasive paper, grain size 200-240, before first use, so that the coating does not stick to the friction coating the surface of the stabilizer. The hitch must be "metal blank" (only bullet). See more about maintaining hitch via this link: Ball pressure -Click here to read more about maintaining hitch|
|The ball pressure is correct my. 75 kg (recommended), however, you should see your bil's max. requirements and the instruction manual for your caravan, and comply with these requirements - Several campers have experience, the caravan stability is best with a ball press ca. 90 kg. See more about ball pressure via this link: Ball pressure -Click here to read more on ball pressure|
|Is your caravan loaded correctly? - That is to say spread the heavy load in the caravan, and one at the bottom and as close to the caravan axle as possible.|
|Is your tire pressure inflated to the stated max. tire pressure in instructional book, and like 10 % mere. Have you van tires (6-8 ply tires) mounted on your caravan should your tires always be inflated to 4.5 bar. Not all tires are equally stiff carcass, there may be differences in different brands tires - A stiff carcass provides better stability, we have good experience with Micheling Agilis See more via this link: " Link: caravan tires"|
|Do you primarily loaded the heavy stuff front and rear (not primarily over the shaft), could occur pendulum effect that makes your caravan driveability poor, and at the risk of beating.|
|That you have not overloaded caravan. See more about overloaded caravan via this link: " Link: Overloaded caravan".|
|That there is no play in your overrun brake bracket.|
|Is your car tires pumped up to the max. tire pressure cf.. instructional book + 10 % additional.|
|The distance between the rear axle and pull the hook is as short as possible, and if your car has soft springs should you mount MAD springs as in daily driving are not labeled, but at last onto the tow your car will not sink into the asphalt, which also helps your bil's front wheel has more grip to the road, and thus better handling.|
|The caravan has an unbalanced shaft. See more about unbalanced shaft via this link: " Link: offbeat shaft".|
|Some feel they have unstable driving by mounting the bike rack at the back of the caravan, and other campers are experiencing good driving properties even if they have mounted bike rack on the back of the caravan. If you have bike rack on the back of the caravan you should not mount a pressing for protection of the bikes, for it can cause unstable driving as the wind takes hold of the pressing.|
Never exceed Critical speed!
An average critical speed of caravans located
according ALKO on 115-120 km/t, map caravan has a lower
critical velocity than a larger and longer caravan.
However, you must remember, that if you rear-mounted bicycle rack with bicycles on, , the critical velocity be approximately. 10% lower.
See the link below:
If the above is ok, and you still have slinger or poor driveability, you should focused on the following:
– offbeat shaft –
” Link: More about skewed shaft”
• Din bil har måske defekte støddæmper.
• Din campingvogn´s hjulleje er defekt.
• De bedste forudsætninger er hvis din bil vejer mere end campingvognens total vægt.
• Der findes også ATC (Anti-slinger system for caravans) which has the following advantages: ATC'en measures the smallest lateral movement, the brakes caravan instantly and automatically, driver brands hardly, the electronically controlled alignment occurs, ATC weighs only 5 kg.
• Kør gerne langsommere end tilladt på steder med kraftig sidevind
• Slør i påløbbremse konsollen, ” Link: More about the veil in the overrun console”
Hope the above has given you some ideas, how you can achieve the best driving performance with your caravan.
