comment How to find a truck mechanic while traveling in New Zealand
Most businesses of that type are probably listed in the yellow pages, at yellow.co.nz however that won't help you filter them based on quality. I'd suggest you phone up some businesses in the Wellington region that obviously own trucks, and ask them if they can recommend a mechanic. (Would have posted this as an answer, but was too slow and the question got closed while I wrote my answer! A shame, as I think the rewording makes it worthy of staying open.)

comment Camper vehicle supplemental insurance in New Zealand
Try emailing this company tower.co.nz/insurance/Documents/car-insurance to see if you could get regular car insurance. You may also be able to get cover from a travel insurer in your own country, but beware that they may have the same clause in their policy (one insurance company, AA, that I just looked at also has the clause you speak of for their travel insurance).

revised What kind of power adapter do I need in New Zealand
Updated voltages, as NZ is 230-240V. Apple chargers appear to be 100 to 240V http://www.wirelessground.com/appleada1265.html
