The Pegasus Manual
Thank you for choosing to stay in our caravan. We trust you will enjoy your stay. Our van is very well appointed and has all that you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay.
As part of you hiring our van, we require you to read the below instructions and watch the helpful videos, which will ensure, you have a great stay and the van is kept in good functioning condition.
The Bailey Ancona Pegasus GT65, is built with comfort in mind. But in order to keep the tow weight low, some materials used are fragile. As such good care is needed when staying in this caravan.
Water can be connected using the blue hose. When first using the water in the morning, it is recommended to run the water for 30 seconds, to purge the water left in the hose overninght (to avoid bad tasting water).
A small hot water system is fitted to the van, and this will allow you to take a short shower. Please note that this is a small system and as such it does run out after a few minutes.
The van has a built in 12 volt battery which runs the lights and the 12 volt power sockets. When using the van in a setting where there is no mains power. This means the built in fridge and hot water do not operate when running on 12 volt.
A seperate 12/240 volt fridge / freezer running of a solar panel can be provided. Please use power wisely, as running the battery flat will cause damage to the battery.
The battery charge level can be monitored on the control panel next to the entry door.
POWER SOCKETS | The van is fitted with child safety sockets, which means you can only use three pronged plugs (with ground/earth pin). A two pronged plug will not go in to the socket. A seperate power board has been provided to use with these two pronged plugs as many small appliances do not have the three pronged plug.
Gas – Heating/Cooking & Microwave
The oven and stove top run on LPG gas. Sufficient gas will be available to run all appliances for the duration of your stay.
Below we have also put a link to the operating manual of the microwave.
We ask you not use the one electric cooktop.
Stovetop, Oven & Grill
When running on mains power, the airconditioning unit can be used to either cool or heat the van. We suggest using the built in gas heating system for more effective heating of the whole van (see the Gas – Heating/Cooking section).
A link has been provided here to the manual of the airconditioning unit.
This van has a lot of windows to let plenty of natural light in. All windows and roof hatches are fitted with flyscreen protection and blinds. These screens are fragile, and expensive to replace. As such, we ask you take extra care with them so that they don’t get damaged.
Especially when staying in the van with small children, please ensure they don’t ‘poke’ the screens or blinds.
The van is fitted with a fully functional flushing toilet. We recommend using this toilet only/mainly for urination at night and using on site facilities at all other occasions.
You will be resposible for emptying the ‘cassette’ during your stay and at the end of your stay, unless otherwise agreed prior to your stay.
Depending on the number of people using the toilet, the toilet should be emptied every one or two days.
Proper use of the toilet will ensure that there wont be any ‘nasty’ surprises.
Toilet use and maintenance
The fixed bunk beds are pretty self explanitory. They have a weight limit of 75kg.
The dinette converts into a small bed suitable for a young child. Please watch the instruction video on how to set this bed up.
