  1. Surfer added an answer to a question Hybrid motor mover   

    I have a complete Evo auto engage motor mover in our garage that is 5 years old.  We had an AWD fitted so this one is redundant waiting to be sold. Open to any tests.   If interested give us a shout.

    Why don't you get an Approved Workshops Scheme (AWS) technician to give the caravan a service checking the gas, electric and water points to make sure the caravan is safe to use for your family?

    Absorption fridges are not normally very good in very hot weather in Spain.  A compressor fridge is a better option.

    I have to agree with the above as with the price of fuel being higher naturally the cost of food and other stuff increases.  In the seventies in South Africa we had a national speed limit of 80pkh due to oil crisis and this speed limit was rigorously enforced.  The accident rate increased.
    It costs more using the ferry to Spain but this is offset by lower fuel prices, lower food and other stuff costs.  We enjoy France and without taking into consideration the exchange rate, we now find it is rather expensive to visit.  We are going to France for a month in September and will make up our minds whether to visit again or not.

    One thing we intensely dislike about Cornwall is having to pay to park near a beach especially if it is a fixed charge i.e. £3.5 all day and you are only going to be there for 20 minutes.  In France it is free.

    I agree they are very good and we ordered one last week but they delivered the mains only version to us and we had to send it back.  We had one previously, but sold it a few years ago when we thought we would have to give up the caravan. 
    Now we have a Halfords box which works off mains or 12v and it keeps the food frozen for about 2 days.

  7. Surfer added a post in a topic good speak for car manufacturer   

    We like all the boy's toys with the exception of the built in Satnavs which in the majority of cars has huge drawbacks as you cannot add your own POIs i.e. Archies Campsites.  Plus when it is time to update they charge you an arm and a leg plus some.  TT gives us updates 3- 4 times a year free of charge and we can add our own POIs.

    I don't think I would be very happy with a manufacturer tracking my every move as that is an invasion of privacy.  I guess you agreed to them monitoring you day & night?

    No it is £2.50 each person paid so for £2.50 I got 25 screw pegs.

    We simply went to Screwfix and bought 50 coach screw pegs for a lot less than £10.  As we shared the cost with a friend I think it worked out at about £2.50 each.  Does the same job for a lot less.

  12. Surfer added a post in a topic French fuel price (diesel) 11 July   

    That is starting to make France an expensive option as it has gone up considerably in the past two years and even more in the past 3 months.  I wonder how long Macron will stay President as this will not make him popular with the masses?

    Is there any type of reasonably priced insurance that can be taken out for issues such as this?  I know RP cover continental and their price is quite reasonable for an annual subscription.

    It will only start to rain when the school holidays start.  Surely you should know that by now?

    It may have been better if you had placed her in the car, started the engine and switched on the air con to its coolest.  It worked for two elderly ladies that were feeling the heat!
