This is exactly what I was on about and would be great if the LPG companies played ball, only apart from NOT knowing which filling nozzle their tankers had they also said they would only be interested if RV customers like house dwellers ordered several hundred gallons of LPG.Sadly no idea Jim. It was while we were staying at the Ranch. Duncan of starspangledspanner might well be able to advise. The bloke used to come around and just fill us up each month
is that 'Exclusion' I hear, let us not go down that route. I don't think it should matter what you fulltime in, if you fulltime then you are a fulltimer :confused:ut you cant count caravaners etc etc, as motorhome(rs).
If you are a 'static' livaboard e.g. permanent mooring on a marina then you pay council tax. If you are a 'casual cruiser' you do not pay council tax.Jim,
Having watched the Sky programme 'Water World ' I noted that some people on low incomes are purchasing not only boats but also caravans and RV's and again some remain static where as others 'tour' or in the case with narrow boats 'cruise', which brings us back to the subject of Council Tax.
You will see on the 'link' mentioned that I have asked our narrow boating cousins how they deal with that item, pay up, exempt or what.
Canal boats can have Cassette Type toilets, Black holding tanks or a combination of both. British waterways provide chemical disposal points (Free) along most canals and most boatyards have the facilities much like campsites (Toilets and Showers also). Along canal routes and at Boatyards there are 'Pump Out' stations for Black waste and these facilities cost anything between £8-£15.Thanks for the link Mick
I was just reading your thread on there, and wondered how they dump tanks ????
Do they have a 'honey wagon' touring their moorings or have they long enough hoses and macerater ??-----------it's good to see how open they are with you !
Sorry, missed the second point. There are canal boats that cruise certain canals selling all sorts of produce including coal and logs for the solid fuel stoves, cheeses, breads etc and even floating mechanics ! Nearly all boat yards have shops that sell the same as above including Calar Gas Cylinders and 'Chendelry' for boating accessories, spare parts etc.I think they have to pump or have their black & grey tanks sucked out On the TV programme some narrow boats are visited by a chap selling coal, diesel and LPG.
I have mentioned this before so excuse the repetition. Country Wide Farmers provide LPG at fantastic rates (better than the fuel stations) and although you have to go to them many are 24/7 and you are given a PIN Code to access the locations and help yourself via a keypad to enter your account number. You are billed monthly and can either pay them directly or set up a Direct Debit. Someone thought that they were only based in the South West but this is not the case they are County Wide. I have Gaslow so no more changing/exchanging of cylinders and I can use LPG facilities throughout Europe (where you can find it).we used to have lpg delivered to our own tank-----------and for the life of me , I can't remember what fitting they used ! ! It's the tanker driver you need to talk to !! IF they carried a fitting that worked------you would have to convince the Co. to run a tanker to your small tank----------------------------------they would make a killing at shows though!!!
