But you can use a portable TV in your caravan or camper etc. on
your home tv
licence.
The exact rules can be found on the licencing authority website.
can't
remember its address though......

It's

www.tv-l.co.uk

which is where I found out about the cost of the b/w licence.

I think this is on condition that you do not also have a tv running at
the home address. Includes vcr's too.....

I don't imagine a tv is something we would use at all when we go abroad, but
for instance, we have just spent a very wet month in Scotland and sometimes
it would have been nice to have a tv. Mind you, the car radio didn't work on
Radio 4 (Home Service to me!!) when we were north of York so whether a tv
would work is questionable !!!

The only thing we watch on tv is West Wing and ER . . . . . . . and the odd
movie, which is why, unless the tv is a reasonably good one (to use as an
extra
when we are at home), it wouldn't be worth getting! When we are away by
the time we have eaten and then I have beaten Hugh at cards, it is usually
time to call it a day ;0)

Thanks for all the help though . . . . . something to think about

Buff :0)

> 1) Do you use it abroad - I think a different system is needed there?
2) with very small units I recall that they have batteries and or
transformers - usually mains, and extra wires etc?

Hi Folks

I am thinking of selling my house and using the equity to buy a
large
(haven't decided on a large European or American RV) motorhome and
go
through France and Spain.
In that case, buy a large European - easier to get bits for and to be
repaired in Europe than an RV, especially as you are thinking of
travelling in Europe. Horses for courses - if I was going to
America, I'd think American!

I have a partner and two kids(+dog).
How often are you thinking of moving around? A free-standing awning
tent might be useful for storing bits. Do you need auxilliary
transport - bikes etc...How old are the kids? Schooling?


At the moment I live in Somerset and work in London - I have
resigned
my job and the house is on the market.
You're not completely mad, then.... ;-))

Unfortunately I probably don't have enough equity to buy a house
outright in Spain but since reading and getting 'into' MotorHomes I
am thinking that it may be possible to survive for up to two years
while we;

a: Learn the Lingo
b: Find out where we want to put down roots
c: just have a godamm adventure!

Have I gone barking mad or is this do-able!
I think you need to have a look at the companion site to this,

http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/motorhome-living/

where people either have already done so or are actively
contemplating doing this sort of thing.


I would appreciate any thoughts and advice on this.
bty - hopefully I would have about £80000 but I would want to stash
at least £30000 for any 'egg on face' scenarios.
Have you thought about buying a small property to let while you are
away for that £30K - I believe there are still some to be had
somewhere in the UK!! You are then buying something that will
appreciate in value - hopefully - and will at any rate give you a
residential address in the UK which you might find necessary, and
also give you an income to keep you going while you are on your
travels.

Hilary

PS No, you haven't gone barking mad; if I had the resources and
didn't have the need to work, I'd probably do the same thing!


Rear View Cameras

pilotepete@...
 

Due to difficulty with the wiring on our existing trailer, made me think that there must be a way to have a reliable radio frequency camera system on the trailer for safety purposes both in parking and view of the following traffic. Does anyone know of such a commercial system for vehicles? The idea is that the camera on the trailer could act as a safety warning if the view of the area surrounding the motor caravan was directed in the right direction. Of course, it does mean that the trailer would need a 12 volt battery.

Hello everybody
I'm pleased to say that I am over the worst (ophthalmic shingles)
now and on the road to recovery. I'm told there should be no
permanent damage to my sight or my hearing, so that's a great
relief because I actually lost my sight in one eye for several hours.
Not a pleasant experience! Still on pain killers but back at work
for a few hours a day.
The present Bishop of Lincoln used to be our parish priest (I was the
organist at one of the churches he had to look after), and Archdeacon
of the Diocese of Ludlow when we lived in Shropshire. Before he came
to us he explained that he had had trouble with one eye and couldn't
see out of it any more, and also he didn't always hear everything
that was said clearly - although personally, I think he could have
heard a pin drop at fifty yards! So when he was 'promoted' to
Archdeacon, in his sermon at the service he expained all this along
with the role of Archdeacon, who has to look after the fabric of the
churches in the diocese and oversee and agree to any changes made to
the buildings and contents - amongst other things. He said he was in
an excellent position to be able to turn a blind eye to some things
and a deaf ear to others.....! :-))

But in the trade you're in, Stephen, you can't afford to do either,
so I'm glad you're well on the road to recovery. Take it steady!

I bought one of these a few months ago and find it OK. After a few usage's it
does not spring back to it's tight coiling, but stays somewhat extended which
negates the purpose really.

I have it permanently connected to my garage tap and have to hang it from
hooks at eaves level to keep it out of the way when not in use. It is simple to
unhook it when needed.

It is now about 20 feet long in the loose state, rather than the ten feet or
so it was when first bought, so it has stretched to twice it's original size.

Off to Devon today for a week or so, regards to all, sorry I cannot make the
meet, maybe September...............................Tony S.

Hilary,
When infested with ants nests I tried all sorts of 'killers' including
several of 'Nippons'.
I had no results until I used the white puff powder ( also 'Nippon' if I
remember right ). It worked a treat: the ants came scrambling out of their nests
in the house cracks and died on the floor. Hoovered 'em up.
Although 'OT' you could of course get ants in your van and I think it is
supposed to work on other insects too.....

Hi Voxy.
Your friend wants to join the Classic Camper Club.
In there bimonthly magazine they have adverts for spares from other club members and also from normal retailers.
There are members names with their phone number.who offer their advice on maintaining the different make vans
When I had a CF 250 I had trouble starting it when the engine was hot. I phoned the relevant member and he told me about the petrol vaporising in the carb.
Also they have many rallies where he can meet other owners with vans like his.
You can get the club details for him at www.classiccamperclub.co.uk
Hope this is some help,
Tony.W

In one of the cheaper house hold supplier shops (Woolies,
Wilkinsons ?), I found a window mop with a squegee on the back., and
the handle was about 2 ft long, so I (of moderate height) can wash
and wipe to the top of the screen (Fiat ducatto).

I also carry a spray bottle of strong windscreen wash solution (3
water to one wash), Its a lot easier to top up than lifting the
bonnet and filling the screen washer bottle. Shifts most bodies.

The secret is not let the the bodies dry out ! clean'm orf when they
are fresh.
