What wil we need to take with us? We are travelling by train.
We will sort out insurance before we go & do the car tax on line there.
I was thinking of taking sleeping bags so we can stay over night nearby & drive back in the morning, is that a good idea?
Dows anyone know anywhere near Warminster or on the way back towards Norfolk to stop?
Are they likely to set up the toilet or will we have to do that? Is it hard? If it is I think we will need a camp site with toilets as I don't fancy trying it at 5 or 6 pm (after the clocks change - will it be light?)
Heavens ... do relax ... firstly if you tax it Monday they will start it from the 1st March or you will not be able to drive it legally ... but if you cannot pick it up on the 1st April then just take the hit ... as to the toilet and other things ... ask for a full briefing on how everything works ... it does not matter if they showed you when you first went .. just say you need a refresher ...
Use google it's great for finding sites or if you are a member of one of the clubs get their site finder on your phone ... if you are a full member here look at the pub stopovers ...
Oh and setting up the toilet just consists of putting water in the flush and something like Thetford Aqua Kem Green or Elsan Organic ... just google what ever type of loo yours is and see what it says
Pillows can be easily bought ... so no drama there.
Not sure what you mean about the loo ... is it a thetford one ... if so then just go to Youtube there are loads of video's on what to do
I don't have a reel for my EHU cable ... but they do sell reels for them
Inverters turn DC (Direct Current) like your batteries put out ... into AC (Alternating Current) like you house electricity
I'm sure someone will tell you if they are a necessity or not ...
Well Mums are always right ... the outside shower would be good if you have dogs, go cycling or trekking in muddy places ... actually I can think of quite a few things ... and if you have it surely it should work ... unless it is loads of money to repair ... I suspect the dealer just could not be bothered ... what did they say was the fault?
You will probably have to resize your pictures ... try this feebie software it is easy to use and you can do lots of pictures at once if you want ... http://www.freesizer.com/
It is not a case of it's not original ... they are selling the motorhome and the things on it should work unless you agree that you will accept them in a non working condition ... and as to the door Ummm ... I suppose you were restricted in choice because of the automatic licence ... but hell they sound like right shyte dealers and I would have had one hell of a row with them over their lack of customer care ...
I went looking for a different motorhome after losing my partner and the way the dealers treated me was appalling ... they came out with the biggest load of drivel you could imagine ... unfortunately for them I worked with motorcycles, cars and trucks most of my working life ... except when I took time out to do my C&G level 4 Electrical engineering ... So I soon had them on the back foot and squirming ... but it should not be that way ... they saw lone woman and easy target to bull excrement ...
Don't let it put you off ... you have your new baby and it's onwards and upwards now ... let us see the new upholstery when it's finished ...
Looks good ... and resizing was not difficult was it? ... NEILMAC has updated the How to on photo uploads ... if you want to see lots of ways to upload to here then have a read ... Link = http://bit.ly/2okFbka
Someone said there is amximum weight we can carry - as we have the electric bike plus Barry's bike & a sewing machine.......plus a few clothes and a fair amount of 'stuff' - I thought I'd better check this - where will it be written down?
Will I need to use a weigh bridge after it's loaded to check it
You have your motorhome paperwork and you will find plate on the van somewhere that should also tell you ... there are two weights you will come across ... the MIRO and MTPLM ... just subtract the MIRO from the other and that is you user payload ...
MIRO Mass in Running Order The MIRO is the weight of your motorhome as it left the manufacturer and is calculated to include a full tank of fuel and an average driver weight of 75kg, and before any other contents are added.
MTPLM Maximum Technically Permissible Laden Mass The MTPLM is the maximum amount which your fully laden motorhome can weigh and still be legal to drive.
I just weighed the stuff I have when I used to load out caravan until I got used to what weights were like for different things ... just remember that any extra passengers have to be included in the weight along with any gas bottles etc
But if you are unsure ... load what you think you need and then go to your local weigh bridge ... then come home and do the thinning out ... good luck
