About this deal

I have a Kampa fiesta pro and find it doesn't take as long to blow it up manually than using a 12v pump and the kampa pump will not over inflate the tubes. Ok by all means use them if you can't manage a manual pump but if you are so unfit should you really be dragging about a heavy air awning! As the 12V outlet in the van is restricted to 4A and will obviously draw power from the van battery, I always use the car socket and keep the engine running whilst it's pumping.

If you give the guy ropes a tug to ease out any kinks in the tubes then the two stage pumps will stay on low pressure high volume setting which will speed up the inflation, I think the Kampa Breeze was a two stage pump.Two of the connectors are simple cone shaped tubes (of different sizes) which can be pushed into a circular shaped inlet such as an airbed etc. Have used the hand pump and found it to be quite good but using this on one of the hottest days last year not recommended. I think the fact that Kampa discontinued the Breeze and replaced it with a totally different one tells you they accepted the poor performance of the Breeze.

If for any reason we are unable to honour this commitment then we will endeavour to inform you as soon as possible. About 30 minutes) before purchasing the replacement for YOUR caravan we looked at all of the awnings at the NEC show. To use, simply plug into a 12 volt power source, such as the cigarette lighter socket in your car or motorhome, using the extra long cable provided, then set the PSI ( Pounds Per Square Inch ) that you require and let the pump take care of the rest. I managed to "redesign" the Sevylor fitting on the high pressure hose and it fits snugly into the inflation socket on the awning so I can just let it do it's thing. There have been more than a few reports on here about Kampa’s tendency to leak, especially around the zip area.There is ample cable to run from a standard 12v vehicle socket and the pressure limit setting is easy to use.

I had to go to reception and borrow a monkey wrench so that I could hold the white nut and unscrew the tube.

Just been away for the past 5 days and it was the maiden voyage for my Kampa Frontier Air Pro and the Kampa Gale pump, Both of these put in a flawless performance, The pump is certainly easier than the hand pump and the awning was no harder to thread on the van than my 390 air, No water ingress or condensation in the awning even though we had some squally showers over the wknd, All in all i am happy with both purchases. Someone said to me the other day (as I was bemoaning the pump and having to reverse up to the awning anyway) why don't you get a bike battery and use that? As I have said by the time you reverse up,get the pump out the box, unravel and plug in, you could have pumped it up and be pegging down! Some air pumps come with a variety of nozzle sizes to fit different types of valves, making them versatile and convenient to use. With a range of power options and sizes, from portable manual pumps to heavy-duty electric pumps, these air pumps are the perfect addition to your camping, hiking, and outdoor gear collection.No faffing with extension leads, getting the car near enough to reach the battery / 12v sockets, no blown fuses. In addition, we use a number of third party cookies to enhance your experience, some of these include videos from Youtube, which will not work if you decline third party cookies. I also invested in a small (40 Ah) 12v battery since mine draws more current than the normal caravan / car fuses on a cigarette lighter socket will allow. Just wondering if any "more mature" caravanners here use an electric pump or manage with a manual pump.

We came to the conclusion that those offered by Sunncamp offered the best compromise between cost and quality. It has a pressure gauge, automatic cut-off, and is very quick - inflates our Kampa 390 Grande in 3 minutes.

The material used in the Airvolution range is mush thicker than that used by Kampa (closer to Dorema weight) and the design features were very well thought out. I have just purchased a rechargeable battery (no cables, so no distance restriction) inflater as we have inflation tow behind toys for the jetski and I very impressed with it so will try it on the air awning and may use this. We have the 400 and it's up very quickly with the Breeze apart from 2 occasions now when I haven't closed a tap properly. If we were older or had mobility problems we would plug it in and go and make some tea ( we were told that when we purchased it) but I'm impatient and can't wait!
