TRAILER RENTALS DO NOT INCLUDE HOOK
The Renter is responsible for having the right hitch, reciever ball, electrical plug and brake control device needed to meet California requirements. This requires having a 2-5/16” ball, a 7 prong electrical plug, and a brake control device mounted inside the tow vehicle. Trailers weighing over 5,000 lbs require the use of a special ball mount that is solid steel or a weight distribution hitch. These hitches are available for rent for $18.00 per night.
When a Renter is Dry Camping (not connected to an external power source), and is relying solely on the battery for their power source, problems may arise due to the battery going low. This may cause the appliances to malfunction or to not work at all. Get Away RV Rentals is not responsible for, nor will give any reimbursements for dry camping malfunctions.

Generators are 3,000 watt and will handle most loads. Be advised that when running A/C's, it is not advised to run other not mounted appliances i.e. hair dryers, curling irons or chargers for phones and computers. Most vehicles are equipped with onboard 110 volt AC generators. On board generators are primarily used to keep the house batteries fully charged while dry camping (no hookup). You will be allowed 3 hours each day free of charge. Any hours above 3 hours per day will be charged at $3.00 per hour, plus fuel. Portable generators are also available for travel trailers without an onboard generator for $33 per day.
GENERATOR USAGE IN MOTORHOMES
Motor homes equipped with a generator will be allowed 3 (three) free hours of generator use per day. Additional usage will be charged $3.00 per hour. The generator is not required for normal vehicle operation regular functions of a motor home will run off the 12-volt “house” batteries and propane. These batteries charge while the engine is running. (Only the roof air conditioner, microwave, TV, and 110 Outlets need to be plugged in to an outside power source or to the generator to operate). Note: Generators will not operate when the fuel level is near or below ¼ tank. Due to the variation in operating conditions we will not be held fully responsible for vapor lock of generator engines or other problems caused by operator error, weather and internal electronics
