    Another 7 please....West Ayton CC near Scarborough.
     
    Edit....make that 8 nights....decided to extend my stay for one night & (hopefully) avoid the "fresh air" currently blasting across the A66.

    Don't have any great rule of thumb though, usually, it's because the one I've got is getting a bit "tired"......previous one was changed for another reason entirely.

    Got one recently from Aldi....around 40 quid & runs on 12v (in car) or mains.
    Used last weekend....kept the "important" stuff in perfect nick. As the 12v sockets in my car only operate when the engine's running there ain't no problem regarding a flat battery.

  9. andyn added a post in a topic good speak for car manufacturer   

    I'm in the "buy used, relatively low mileage" camp too. No point in buying brand new....you drop a fortune as soon as you drive off the forecourt & you don't have the (potential) brand new car problems.
    I have remote monitoring on my gas boiler so it comes as no surprise car manufacturers are using it too.

    Very true Geoff......trouble is if I don't I'll probably b****r something up....and that means more expense.....something I, definitely, can do without.

    Having just seen the long range (10 day) forecast there ain't any appreciable rain on the horizon either.
     
    Spare a thought for the Firemen & Troops who are dealing with heathland fires both in Scotland & England at the moment (& probably elsewhere)

    Cheers Gary,
    I've have found, right down to make, model & layout, of what I want......it's a private sale too, so the price is (very) reasonable (looks like someone's giving up 'cos there's loads of extras included) but I can't do anything until (a) 'van insurers come back to me on a settlement & (b) I get my "wheels" back on the road.
