HOW TO INSTALL THE ALL-IN-ONE RV CLOTHESLINE BRACKETS

  1. Roll out your awning to your desired pitch usually 8 metre / 6 feet from the ground.
  2. Remove the two brackets from the box, left-hand and right-hand plus a center support bracket.
  3. Once you have decided whether you want the clothesline on the outside or under the awning place the right-hand bracket over the roller tube close to the end support arm, then tighten up the clamp using the black knob. Once that bracket is secured, install the left-hand bracket the same way as the right-hand bracket.
  4. After completing Step 3 tie a knot at the end of the wire as shown in picture and start to thread the clothesline wire through the first hole closest to the awning tube. Feed the wire through the center support bracket. Then feed wire into the other end bracket and work back to the other end bracket. Supplied are 2 plastic tensioners, one is for a spare Install the tensioner where you started feeding the wire through as per picture and start to tension both wires.

  1. There is an awning support cradle built in. The small tube on the underside of the Cradle is where a tent pole can be located to take the weight of the awning tube when hanging out the washing on the line. “Poles Not Supplied”
  2. Once the awning is tied down by using guy ropes or straps, install another support pole under the center support bracket. “Pole Not Supplied”

Please Note: Some Aussie Traveller awning tubes have dome head screws. These will have to be changed to countersunk or flathead screws as the brackets will not clamp tightly around the tube. Please contact Aussie Traveller re size of screws.

Please NoteSome late model Carefree awnings have plastic covers. Check there is at least 25mm gap between the vinyl and the end support arm of the awning.

WARNING

When tying down awnings it is the responsibility of the person carrying out the procedure to realise the straps and guy ropes are only a precautionary measure.

When strong and excessive winds prevail awnings should be wound in to prevent any damage to your awning. 

Remove clothesline before retracting the awning as serious damage can be done to the awning and the clothesline.

Caravan & RV Clothesline a Game Changer

Caravan & RV Clothesline a Game Changer

It’s not the first time an Aussie inventor has revolutionised the way we dry our clothes, but it has been a long time since we’ve seen such innovation in a caravan clothesline. Due to go on sale shortly, this fantastic new caravan awning clothesline could be a game changer.

Grahame Pilgrim, inventor of the popular ReverseMate aid for caravans has come up with yet another practical invention, the All-In-One RV and Caravan Awning Clothesline. Designed to take the hassle out of drying clothes, towels and sheets when travelling, this new offering takes up less storage space than a traditional fold-up or umbrella-type caravan clothesline.

According to Grahame, the new RV and caravan awning clothesline simply fits over your existing awning tube. You don’t need to purchase any additional items or drill anything to install it.

Everything you need is supplied in the caravan awning clothesline kit, including:

  • Two adjustable brackets that fit over the awning tube
  • Two awning tie-down clips (one is used when the line is outside the awning and the other when installed under the awning)
  • Centre line support bracket to minimise wire sagging
  • 15 metres of 4mm plastic coated wire with 160kg breaking strain
  • Two plastic strainer clips to tension the wire

The nitty gritty on what, where and when

Grahame has finished the prototype testing on the caravan awning clothesline and the final retail version, which will be proudly manufactured in Brisbane, Australia, will be cast from aluminium (the brackets) and then powder-coated white.

These new clotheslines will suit Carefree, Dometic, A&E Awnings and some Aussie Traveller with the first lot of stock due to arrive in January. To get your hands on one of these new caravan clotheslines, make sure to jump on over to the Reverse Mate website and register your interest (click on the product inquiry button) so you don’t miss out when they become available.

Reversing a Caravan or Trailer.

Reversing a Caravan or Trailer.

Get someone to guide you or use a Reverse Mate the Back Up Buddy

Are you new to reversing a camper trailer or caravan? Or maybe you’ve been doing it a while but still get anxiety at the thought of reversing in a crowded campground with an audience. Either way, keep reading because we have some tips to share with you on how to smash it (in a good way) at reversing your caravan or trailer.

Line up your caravan or trailer before you start reversing

Reversing your caravan or trailer around corners or on an angle is a lot harder than reversing straight back.  Aim to get your caravan or trailer as straight as possible before reversing. Of course, this is easier said than done in a crowded caravan park but if you have the space to drive forward so that you can position yourself perfectly to reverse straight backwards, this will make things a lot easier.

If you have someone to guide you, enlist their help by getting them to stand at the rear corner of your caravan. Make sure they give both verbal and hand directions and try not to lose your cool when they start making circles with their arms and you have no idea what they mean. It helps to talk about what the signals mean before you start.

If you have someone to guide you, enlist their help by getting them to stand at the rear corner of your caravan. Make sure they give both verbal and hand directions and try not to lose your cool when they start making circles with their arms and you have no idea what they mean. It helps to talk about what the signals mean before you start.

If you’re travelling solo or you can’t deal with your partner’s guiding technique (it’s a common problem), grab yourself a Reverse Mate. It’s basically a system of high-vis markers that makes it much easier to see where your caravan or trailer needs to go when reversing. Here’s what the Reverse Mate looks like:

Reverse Mate

The Reverse Mate high-vis marker system comes with:

  • 2 x Reverse Mate markers
  • Measuring tape
  • Carry bag
  • Easy to follow instructions

The markers feature reflector strips for night visibility, foldable base plates, built-in LED lights and collapsible poles.

Practice reversing your trailer or caravan without an audience

Yes, practice really does make perfect and it’s incredibly helpful to set aside time to practice without the pressure of an audience. Remember, the opposite rule applies when it comes to reversing a trailer or caravan. If the trailer needs to go right, you will turn your steering wheel to the left and vice-versa. The best thing to do is find a big open area like a paddock or empty parking lot and just give it a go. This allows you to get the feel of which way to turn the wheel and work out what works best for you.
