Alternators

Fredthegaffer <fredthegaffer@...>
 

HI
I have a Valeo 96 alternator on my van which I have now been assured is faulty, as it should give out 14 volts and only gives out 13.8

Is there a user replaceable part that I can easily swap on this? Or is it a full replacement?

Advice appreciated
Fred

How did you get to Tangiers?
Ferrys depart from Algeciras and Tarifa in southern Spain almost
hourly. There is once a week service from Gib. From Barcelona it is
weekly and from Sete, France, also weekly.

It is imparitve to have a reservation on the weekly service,
especially from Sete.

Cost for our return - Tangier to Tarifa was under 100 Euro, From
Barcelona it was around 700 Euro. (We had no interest in driving the
east coast of Spain. Ship was most comfortable.

I gave it a try. My 910 would cost £9.95 per quarter BUT the system
needs to check your unit via TomTom Home. When it did this it reported
that my Western Europe map was 2 quarters old so the cost for "Map
Update" would be £19.90 up front then £9.95 a quarter.

I have not bothered.

Re: [MH-list] Blackpool parking - squirrels

Fredthegaffer <fredthegaffer@...>
 

We saw 2, from a very great distance. We even went back and had tea, then just before dusk we ventured out again (no they didn't come and close the gates) we sat quietly in the same spot for over an hour, the spot where they're usually so prolific. We never even got a hint of them.
It got really dark so we went over to the beach to enjoy the moonlight on the sea before leaving.
Shame cos my friend has never seen a red squirrel and I've never been to formby and not seen them. usually getting to hand feed them too!
Maybe they smelled Blackpool on me :)
Never mind maybe next time.

The on-line system is good at showing you any current bargains based on
(lack of) traffic volume for particular sailings. Naturally enough you won't
find those in brochures. It is of course generally true that travelling
midweek and off-peak is cheapest, as is booking with either very short or
very much longer notice. The better web sites like Sea France will quote for
your exact request but also allow you to page forwards and backwards to see
other priced sailings at other times and on other days.
Sea France are exceptionally competitive at the moment I've just booked our winter trip crossings for 46 return. Out at the beginning of Jan, back beginning of April, 7.7m motorhome.

P&O wanted 104 and Norfolkline wanted 160!

Every year about now I get the Salon editions of European magazines and in
glancing down the new model table am always reminded of the perversity of
the storage problem ...

In general smaller vehicles have more payload due to their lighter bodies -
but less storage space of course.

So buy a bigger vehicle (on the same chassis) to get the storage space and
hey ho you can't fill it because you bump into a weight limit!

In a recent French Salon Mag there are numerous 7+ metre multi-berth vans
with only ~300 Kg of available payload ... I've got more than that in my
car!

How about if one has a Mercedes? :-))

A good point on the weight of books, though. They are heavier than house
bricks.

Hi Neill,

Thanks for that. I don't get on with their website. which does neither
myself nor the ferry company any good.
However, my wife says she is happy, so I'll let her sort it out. At present,
I don't know when, or if, I will be travelling in the near future, but am
bound to go sometime before the end of mext Spring.

I phoned BF today, premium of 10p per minute. They promised to send me a
brochure.....as soon as they are available. Then I phoned Transmanche, who told
me to press 2....in French. They also said they would send me a brochure, but
said I would have to go onto the internet to get the prices. I said not to
bother, and I didn't bother phoning Sea France. Lets see what my wife comes up
with.

I've been reading e-books for about 10 years, thanks to my Palm PDAs.

Forget the Sony thing, it's far too expensive for an e-book reader.

Your opinion.

It's a fair bit cheaper than the Iliad reader I use everyday. With
constant use you may need to recharge the device maybe only once a
week (unlike pda's or cell phones), the screen sizes are more like
that of a paperback (no squinting or magnifying glass required), the
pages do not need holding down in the wind, it uses what is called
e-ink technology so there is no led screen, and you can have hundreds
of novels and other reading material (news feeds, blogs and more) -
that in their tree-culling version would put your motorhome over the
weight limit - in one device that weighs no more than your Fiat manual.

They are a protected species so the NT would need a licence to cull. Hope they have one or else big trouble.

Peter S



. There are so many and they are so bold that
they become a real pest in local gardens (so many in fact that the NT
quietly culls the population from time to time to moderate numbers!). Never
been there at any time of year without seeing quite a few of them.

Although they might be seen anywhere west of Formby the dense population is
in the pine woods either side of the NT access road at the end of Victoria
Road - i.e. the northern access. There are so many and they are so bold that
they become a real pest in local gardens (so many in fact that the NT
quietly culls the population from time to time to moderate numbers!). Never

That is exactly what I use--O2xda (but II).It does my TomTom(6) and also Memory Map and eBooks(which I stick on an SD card). Easy to obtain second hand as its not necessary to have the latest hi-tech offerings. Oh--almost forgot--its a phone as well.
