    Definitely a trade plug as their first and probably last post!

    No problem as sometimes I put things across and they do not turn out the way I actually meant them to be. Problem when you are brought up in a bi-lingual country

    I was pointing out flaws and hopefully adding constructive criticism which IMHO will help them think outside the box and come up with a better solution.  I appreciate the the person is only at GCSE stage, but it is at this point that they need input which helps them learn and better prepares them for life on the outside.

    Good idea however most caravans have a awning light anyway.  Also many caravan sites have lights so no need even for a normal torch.  On many camp sites wildlife i.e. rabbits etc running past at night will trigger the light which could then annoy people. It needs a setting to limit the distance and the size of the object being detected.  BTW if it is hanging up outside the unit, what is going to stop someone walking off with it?   It may find a niche market.

    How can they make the check any longer as all they do is open the passport, check for the relevant stamps, scan the dog for the microchip to make sure it is the same dog and you are on your way!  Another scare story I think probably started by a Remainer and then passed onto you?

    I am trying to work out why it will be even longer for checks for passports for dogs?

    As said has the battery been checked.  It is at the bottom underneath.  I think you may need to remove the from cowling to access it? This just clips off.   Can someone confirm?

    Surely better to book with the site directly or maybe it is an ACSI site?

    On another forum someone did use their microwave off a bank of 110ah batteries.  You need to use a very big inverter due to the start up wattage of most microwaves.  Also drains battery very quick.  I think he gave up eventually even though he had several solar panels for recharging.  Better to use a small generator.

  12. Surfer added a post in a topic Reverse polarity   

    We have never bothered with reverse polarity as no intention of poking around live circuits.  It should not affect most caravanners, but there is always the exceptional smart ar**!

    You can do many things Online using governmental websites so why not an IDL?

  14. Surfer added a post in a topic Fireplace Suggestion?   

    I would strongly suggest that you get it fixed in case there is a gas leak.  Do you know when last the unit was serviced?

    Current motorhomes come with built in electric and gas heating.  How old is your motorhome that it does not have either?  If we knew the model and year of the motorhome we could be more helpful.
