Rich, my Carol typed one in Word and had it embossed. It's on yellow card

I am sorry to say but my learned friend is wrong! Toilets in Germany are not
called Schittenpissencrappenchukken.
They are called shizenhousse.

thanks.
Just as well it's North-West Norfolk then :-)
Not many wild sites in what's known as "Chelsea-on-Sea".
NB - King's Lynn - central shopping area about to be rebuilt - from
Saturday, carpark behind Littlewoods (Vancouver Court) to be closed.

Downham Market - we've been "regenerated" - height barriers removed
from carparks, so not all bad news! Tesco's now have two-hour limit,
but some streets have kerbside long bays.

Happy travelling, and we'll look out for you.

Awning help

nicknoo222 <nicknoo222@...>
 

Hello all,

We have a Fiamma F45 awing on our camper, but the trouble last week
a freak gust of wind took it & it's damaged. From what i can tell
something has happend to one of the wind out legs.

Trouble is being totally incompetent at these things I'm looking for
somewhere to take the camper & awning to, to get fixed.

Anyone know of such a place.

I'm based in the midlands.

Thanks in advance

Nick


Re: [MH-list] CC site advance bookings

Mike Shepherd <mike.shepherd1@...>
 

In the season when the kids are off it is impossible. In the winter when
all the grass pitches are waterlogged it is impossible. I used to book
always when I had a Caravan, but with a motorhome it is the freedom to
just go. Fortunately retirement means we spend all holidays and half
terms at home, and go when its not so busy. But clearly if the
indications for growth in Caravan and Motorhome use are right, what the
clubs need to do is start restricting sites to members only, and BUILD
SOME MORE.

Elastic bands Boris. Put one around the tin to keep the straw safe.
Not a cheap weak one either, make it a good un.
The clip on the lid is useless. Put a band on the tin and you'll keep

Re: CC site advance bookings

Motorhomer
 

We're off to the Elvaston Castle site in Mid July for a radio rally.
For the last 4 years this site has been fully booked when I tried to
book a pitch.

Every year I tried earlier and earlier. This year I was successful. I
booked the site as soon as the early booking office opened.

Whilst I was on the phone I booked a few other sites as well :)

It was the only way to get on the sites I wanted, when I wanted.

At least if they are booked up that early in advance it's members on
site. I hate trying a site to be told that they are full and then when
asking how many non members are on site I'm told that 40% or more are
non members. I then wonder why I joined the clubs.

CLs/ CSs are normally pretty good. Basic facilities but they tend to
usually have space.

Both clubs have the early booking facility and I now know why :)

CC site advance bookings

DABurleigh <daburleigh@...>
 

Just a moan to make me feel better.

I think the CC is incompatible with those who fancy something a little more
sociable than a CL but who cannot, usually for work reasons, anticipate
sufficiently far in advance the precise days they will want to stay where.

I tried to book up Rookesbury Park for a week in a month's time. I've got a
couple of days working nearby, and rather than fight rush hour traffic there
and back on separate occasions, I thought I'd use it as a base and take days
off in between and either side of the work days.

Nope, can't do. Fully booked. OK, the period spans before, through and after
a bank holiday. But it's not this coming one, rather the one after that.

That's that spontaneous idea up in smoke. Clearly planning a month ahead is
insufficient.

Some friends are away on a CC site in their motorhome this bank holiday. I
asked them when they booked it. They answered "the first day of the season
the site was open".

I have a sense of deja vue from when golf was my passion a few years back.
In order to get a game at the weekend (had to work during the week) you had
to book up a foursome weeks in advance and turn up whatever the weather or
you received a snotty letter from the secretary. A bit incompatible with
what I wanted to do, which was wake up on a Saturday morning after a tiring
week, throw open the curtains and comment that it was a lovely day for a
round of golf. So I gave it up.

Escaping the country has similar constraints. Trying to obtain suitable
ferry crossings at a less than extortionate price to suit the time you can
get off, when you know what it is, is a nightmare. So last year we flew out
to a hotel, only to hear that the hotel was already fully booked for the
same month a year hence. Things are getting a bit crazy!

I wonder if motorhoming amongst those of working age is increasing or
decreasing in this country. It strikes me you need to be retired for the
freedom to plan sufficiently in advance.

Hi Folks
On my control panel, the red light indicating PRIMARY WATER TANK < 1/4
is permanently lit even when the tank is full.
I have "felt around" ! inside the tank and I can feel 2 small nuts and
bolts about an inch apart at the point where 2 wires attach to the outside
of the tank - approx. 1/4 distance up from the bottom. This must be the
sender unit location. Does anyone know how these sender units function ?
Is it some kind of resistance detection (depending on whether or not the
water covers the terminals) or is it usually a kind of float system (which
on mine has possibly been removed)? .... if so, where can I get a
replacement?
It's probably resistive, the circuit is broken when the level drops
leaving the top contact above the water level. I would suspect that there
is a break in the wiring somewhere - failing that, there could be a

CAK list the material for internal screens in their catalogue:

They also do the edging tape and suction cups.

---------
Depending which way you are going, St Louvier (or just Louvier) just
south of Rouen is a sleepy picturesque town. The tourist office has a
free leaflet for a walking tour of the town- an hour's dawdle.

The whole of the island of Ile de Re near La Rochelle is a protected
nature haven. The WW2 submarine pens at La Rochelle.

Heading south, the Royan Ferry is an experience in its self; side
loading, and if you are too long, they just leave you overhanging the
side!! Quite cheap to cross, and easiest route to Bordeaux.
On arrival at the southern side of the ferry crossing from Royan,
don't try and walk the length of the beach......because its a few
hundred miles long, all the way to Spain! There are dozens of quiet,
out of the way parking places down to Bordeaux.

We haven't been yet, but we have been told not to miss any oportunity
to visit Andorra on the French/Spanish border. Besides the scenery,
fuel is half the price of anywhere else.
Well, theres a start for you, have a good trip,

I feel the same: I don't want to book anything; just up and go. However, on
the 'World Tour of England' last year we didn't book anything but had no
trouble getting in sites ( CC and C&CC sites and CL / CSs ). This was often because
of cancellations or no-shows. I have even found that a site who said they had
no vacancies when we telephoned them, were quite happy to give us a pitch
when we turned up a couple of hours later and asked them personally ( they didn't
know we were us...........)

Just go, turn up, and ask.
