Hi,
Apologies for O/T post but has anyone got a web link for the free AVG or Avast anti-virus. Is one better than the other?
Regards,
John.

Re: Gas Price

If anyone lives or travels near a Countrywide depot, it's worth opening an
LPG account. If you tell them it's only for cooking and heating and they
will only charge you 5% VAT.

They also don't mind if you only use it once in a blue moon.

The depots are mostly around the West Midlands

Hymer Upgrade Refurbishment

motion32uk <xjnews@...>
 

I have a 1990 Hymer 670S and would like to have it upgraded. I don't
wish to buy another van as we like the size of this and to replace all
the extras we have fitted would cost an arm and a leg.(aircon, alarm,
scooter rack, solars). We are happy to spend a bit on our present one.
We are looking for a quality conversion company to re-upholster and re
fit the kitchen and bathroom dependant on costs. Can any one recommend
a suitable company please.
Thanks a lot
Dave

Be very careful with a motorhome, it is highly unlikely it would be insured
if you did this ... and also highly unlikely that it wouldn't be noticed and
objected to.

We have an authentic story about a camper that was left like this and
removed and crushed by the local authority!

sunny days in a UK winter can produce amazingly

-------------------------------------------------------------

I'd certainly agree with that. Despite the immediate appeal of free
electricity from Solar energy their use is far from entirely green when you
consider the resources used in their manufacture to make something that is
only 10-15% efficient. Great for a motorhome but I believe rather more
doubtful on a domestic scale (but better again on a larger scale with solar
towers and mirror farms).


-------------------------------------------------------------
I did come across a 6' long single tube heater developed in the US for about
£130, but I have lost the link. ... & others
­-------------------------------------------------------------

Isn't the problem here that these solar heating panels or tubes are
(usually/always?) a separate heating circuit with a heat exchanger to
transfer the heat to clean water? In a motorhome the penalty of all that
plumbing permanently filled with water could be a serious drawback.

Re: [MH-list] Parking near Gatwick

If you are flying from Gatwick, then I always park on Church Road (by the
Gatwick Travelodge) , which is just behind the runway, there are no parking
restrictions and its free. It gets busy during the day but on the night its
fine, I left my car there for 3 months last time and it was all dandy when
I returned, they wanted £675 for 3 months parking at the airport car parks.

Hi,

If you mean the airport then The Caravan Club site - Amberley Fields is next
to the Gatwick runway. It is about 5 minutes from the terminal. However,
it is a member only site and will be noisy but is handy for the airport.

Hope that helps.

All very true, except that sunny days in a UK winter can produce amazingly
hot water. That is why I believe that domestic solar water heating is the
best way to go to head off global warming. On another list, someone reported
that a system in the Western Isles of Scotland had produced hot water in the
winter.

(think Carol gave that tip on the list a couple of years ago - thanks)
Yes, it was Carol, and it does work. Especially if the bottles are painted
matt black. But just think, having something on a MH roof looking like, say,
5 or 6 of those bottles. I am sure that it would work. And work well.

Re Hymer Headlight

Is this the easiest method of chaning over to lights dipping to the left for a left hand drive Hymer?


'Easiest way is to remove the road wheel on that side (make sure you
use an
axle stand for safety), take out the inner wing liner (lots of
screws), you
can then get straight at the headlamp / bulb holders.'

reminds me very much of the "camping shower" black bags that we have for when we are away in warmer climes ...don't really think they work in the UK.? We also have our own solar powered warm water - clear lemonade bottles refilled with water and left on the dashboard when parked up in the sunshine - amazing how hot they can get, and certainly enough in them for doing the dishes/having a wash in the evening without having to put the gas heater on.

Having spent about 30 on toilet fluid this year, have decided to get a SOG kit, or have one fitted and I know how keen many of you are on this system.

Question 1. Is it easy to fit or does one need a garage?
Question 2. Are all kits the same or are there different makes? If so, which is the best?
Question 3. Where is the best place to buy?

David - our Hymer sog was fitted when we purchased it, the Rapido was specified with it, so we haven't had to fit....but I understand it is not difficult to do yourself. You need to buy the correct sog for the type of cassette you have, there are 3 versions, the bit attached to the cassette just removes one bit and a sog bit of kit is fitted, the other bit is fitted through the hatch door, which I suspect is to drill a hole....me I am no good at drilling, but have a word with Neill King on here, at www.motorcaravanning.co.uk as I expect he sells them on his online shop and he will be able to give you information about fitting.

Re: [MH-list] SOG

Peter S
 

We have just had a week away and didn't use any fluid and we don't have a SOG. I thought I would give it a go and it seemed to be OK. The weather was not too warm and I don't know whether there would be smell problems in the summer. We did empty the casette every day as well.

Done it. Fair old job that but it worked. Glad I wasn't on a road in
