In general you will be able to use all facilities without being plugged in for up to 48 hours without driving during this period. It really depends on what appliances you’re using and how often, and also how often you drive around (as that helps charge the vehicle’s house battery). If you are driving once a day for a longer period of time, it will recharge the batteries and you won't see the battery levels coming down much. However we do recommend to stay overnight at a powered site every second or third night to fully recharge the batteries - just in case you don't drive enough to fully recharge them.
The car is operated by another battery, so even when the house battery is flat, you are able to start the engine.
The fridge, lights in the living compartment as well as the water pump and TV/DVD player will all work whilst not plugged in. Mains power is required to operate the microwave, as well as anything that needs to be plugged into the power points such as a computer or phone charger.
The Nexxo T569 campervan have an iPod or iPhone in the front cab entertainment system. You can also plugin any devise using a mini usb. Unfortunate there is no input for an iPod, MP3 player or iPhone in the front cab of the Explorer, however you can play CDs.
The Nexxo motorhome is equipped with a TV/DVD player (Explorer not)
NZ has very limited reception outside of the metropolitan areas. NZ has a problem with hills, The TV unit in the Nexxo is ideal for DVD movie playing, and limited TV viewing.
For safety reasons, watching TV while driving is not permitted in any of our vehicles.
