    Decision made!

    I like the pictures of yours Alan, especially the last one. One of those 'I hope we don't meet anything.....' moments? - or maybe a lot longer than a moment? The question is, though: Who took it and from where? :) Will

    Decision made!

    At the time I did what AnneandAlan are trying to do, there was no choice for me - live in it, or live in a rented, scabby, little, flat/house/whatever. It was a lifestyle choice, one I welcomed and one that has given me some of the most enjoyable times of my life. I much regret that the...

    ........................ but fortunately for the rest of us not as talented as you, coola, there are options that make life easier when the option choices narrow. ;) Will

    Jacques L'Escargot

    Hello and welcome. Enjoy the search. As vwalan says - despite his wuddled furds, it's a bit cold in France over the winter, so a lot of us (over 28s:blush:) spend the winter further south. Biarritz is relatively warm, though.:) Will

    Alan. After reading your bit about the SOG, I had another thought. If you are designing your own system, would it help to incorporate an air admittance valve and a timer to draw in more air (oxygen) other than the bit that gets in when the cassette valve is open? Will

    Decision made!

    A few more thoughts, again from my experience, and with due deference to others on here who have done it for years and years more than me: Reference Chris's above: I think he may be hinting (forgive me if I'm wrong, Chris) that it's easy to be snowed under by gadget manufacturer's waffle and...

    4. I use my former submersible for the water top-up barrel. They don't last long when you run them dry - easy to do - and the Shurflo type don't care, dry, or not. The Shurflo make a better job of coping with our filter, as well. 6. With regard to LPG outlets, once you've worked out where...

    New Home :)

    Welcome and enjoy. Like the photos. The last one looks like it's bathed in Scottish haar and the second just before it got there....................:) Will

    Size limit for full time in Europe

    True of a lot, I'm afraid, unless you're going to spend €150,000+. It's also the reason we use a folding outdoor kitchen in a safari room/wind-blocked awning whenever moored up for more than a couple of weeks. European Motorhomes (except UK market - and right-hand drive) don't do indoor...

    Size limit for full time in Europe

    Another odd-ball, particularly applicable in France, is that most permanent sites do not allow tag-axle (double rear axle) motorhomes of any size. You can have a 9 metre, 7.5 tonne, twin rear wheel motorhome, no arguments, but tag-axle and out you go. Been there, seen it, done it. I've a...

    Half of this has probably already been said and I'm late in the day but my twopennorth, for what it's worth: 1. Big lead/acid leisure batteries - NOT the AGM type, too unreliable and fussy. There is so much crap in battery advertising, it's unreal. This...

    Passing away.

    So sad to hear, hpold. Hope your health improves along the way. You'll always have something to contribute here, even if you can't manage motorhoming in the flesh. Our condolences. Will and Pat

    Greenhouse and Garden and Chicken sitting - again

    We have a new camper to iron the knots out of, so there's a pitch-with-free-eggs on offer again. I've pretty much done a cut and paste of the info from last time with the odd amendment. There will probably be an offer of something a little more long term if it works out, so............ Does...

    An Earthy Subject

    There is a noticeable reduction in the smoothness of the drive train if you try and accelerate in the higher gears below 1500 RPM. It's an easy 'work-round' though. You just teach yourself to use the box more, As a general principle it's kinder on the power unit and drivetrain, anyhow. As I...

    An Earthy Subject

    Silly thing is I've been a member of Out and About Live for many years - trouble is, I rarely went on there - to the extent that last time I tried, I had to re-register. Serves me right, I guess. I knew about the computer wiring harness problem but always understood it was only the early X250s...

    An Earthy Subject

    It may be that I was the only one in the world who didn't know about this - but I doubt it. All the same, forgive me if this an egg-sucking exercise........... For those of us who have a Sevel-built X250 base unit (Citroen/Peugeot/Fiat) from the last 10 years or so: There is a problem with the...

    Weight

    Having not been much help with the pm I sent Mercy Me, (middle of rural Spain and poached wifi) I'll just add that 3 years ago, as we crossed into Portugal, coming off the dual before the toll road, we were hauled by the GNR with a portable weighbridge. Not wanting to frighten anyone, but it...
