We are currently at Salisbury CCC and what I don’t like is having paid a deposit on day of arrival the rest of the money is just taken from your account. No option to use your voucher!!  Still waiting since 29/6 for an email reply from them. 

They ride in front of you to a pitch end of. No showers etc but I knew that and we don’t use them. 

A lot here now

So much for the information that’s sent with the booking!

I think the answer is to do what you think is the safest method whether others do or not.

I’ve not had any problems paying contactless on CMC sites in the past. 

A few companies seem to set their own limit, but having once bought a £10k car on contactless there shouldn’t be a problem.

Hi,
We decided to set off to North Yorkshire and had booked a while ago at a couple of CMC sites.

Arrived on Monday at the first one - met by the warden who came out to the van so had to wind down window to speak no mask! No three mobile signal to book in so I had to go in office. Cost was £130 for 4nights ( ouch!!) so no contactless offered. Nice perspex screen on desk and able to choose our pitch but had to go back to office to collect barrier fob and wristbands for amenities,only three people at a time. We had no intention of using them being fully self-contained but we can't believe the number of caravanners mostly older generation with super new vans trolling off to the loos and showers all day long. No hand sanitizer at service points but we have all our own gear.

Weather is rubbish but we're off to Barnard Castle site next - hope to get our eyes tested!!

Take care

Just bought a second hand TomTom Trucker 6000 off Ebay. Came with Lifetime Europe map cover and Lifetime Traffic with it's own internal sim. Plugged it in to the PC and added it to my TomTom5100 I have for the car and magic!, all my places were added together with latest map.  I can now input my van dimensions.

Re: Need a Sat-Nav?

Just before Christmas I bought the Garmin 785 Camper - virtually same as Dezi as far as I could see but fir Motorhomes. 

I started with a Streetpilot, then the first Nuvi and then the 785T. None of those were for mhs but cars. I always looked ahead on the paper map for low bridges and only got caught once when we had been diverted but managed to get ourselves out of the mess in a city somewhere.  

This is the first trip with this new one due to lockdown but so far so good but I’ve brought the 785 with me just in case!  

That’s by the way over 30 years. Must admit haven’t had one from start but since 2000 anyway.  Alan might remember when I contacted him with streetpilot and no maps for abroad!!!  Hadn’t realised you had to download them in segments. 

Boy they’ve come a long way but the streetpilot at least had to me a better way of choosing roads than today.

Surely its reccomended to have a specific one for motorhomers?

I've got a Garmin Dezl but I do drive larger vehicles. I'm guessing that
no one is much worried about worrying about that stuff on top of your van ;)

You might not think there are many low bridges around but its also the
class of road. My company Co-Pilot satnav the other day routed me out to
the eastern edge of Lincoln to the A15 bypass the other day. Impressive
as it's not been built yet.

Perhaps just updates getting ahead of themselves? But to get back from
that it tried to take me down a B road. Which I'm not doing in an artic
:o But they also might be too narrow for some of your MHs, and its
always worth considering when getting a purchase like this.

If you're prepared and not bothered about that as your navigator is
alwys on hand with the map to verify your route and assist you then
you've not got much to worry about ;)

Re: airconditioning

A refrigerative Air Conditioner uses a kilowatt or more of power - not a thing for 12V !

Re: airconditioning

Phil
 

When I first saw these at the shows and they were being sold for £300 plus I thought it would be a good idea but was not prepared to pay that much for an evaporative cooler.

So being a "man with a shed" and a passion for saving a bit of money when you can, I decided I will set and make one, this I did using a couple of computer fans a small 12 V waterpump and a filter unit - stick it in a  plastic storage box and yes I have a device that worked well - I tested by using twin digital thermometers, one on the input side and one on the output side -  and yes there was a drop in moving air temperature of approximately 5 to 8° C dependent on humidity.

So when we've been in hot dry places and having it placed on the table with the air going towards you it does have a cooling effect.

For information the ones that sell here for over £300 actually come from Australia and my sister has one out there in Perth where she paid about £150 for it - I did call the company and they said they would not send to the UK.

Hi Carol, nice to hear from you! The lockdown in Spain was rather terrifying being alone as someone who gets human contact with people simply by nipping out to various ordinary places as and when, and what with the continual threat of 600 euro fines if you couldn't prove you were  going to the nearest supermarket for food (singly of course) the only thing allowed for 7 weeks for adults - not even a walk etc (if you had a dog you were told you had to only take it out and in again for it's toilet, not walk it!). Children weren't even allowed outside at all, not allowed to accompany a parent to the supermarket.. or go anywhere at all  However they, at 6 weeks into it were finally allowed outside for an hour within 1 km of home with one adult which helped them and the parent. International scrutiny on Spain's lockdown was then happening which may have helped. At 7 weeks of virtual incarceration all adults ie those without children were also allowed outside for a walk within 1km for an hour for exercise. So that helped, as people were getting terribly stressed. I heard of two local expat suicides too. It's abnormal to say the least being unable to even have a walk. People wer also being told continually they can't go shopping frequently and might get checked, you couldn't make it up. The local town halls and police had videos on Facebook showing military and police road blocks and helicopters flying over remote mountainous countryside making sure nobody was out *anywhere* ..and talking about all the people they'd fined and 600 euros too, including lone people out wit a their dogs! So apart from the issue of any potential illness it was like WW3 and felt like very threatening martial law all of a sudden. I'm the most law abiding person and was terrified. What if I couldn't prove why I was out on my way to the supermarket? Very relieved to be on the other side of all that now. I'm now in the vulnerable category agewise although I look after my health, and I felt far more threatened and terrified by the extreme form of lockdown which felt inhumane, than any virus. People were all getting terribly distressed. Children in Spain really suffered and it was also hard for  the non driving halves of couples who couldn't accompany their driving spouses to the nearest supermarket, as only 1 person, the driver, was allowed in a car anytime... and food shopping was the only way of getting out for all that time so they couldn't even do that. At least couples had each other but I'm sure domestic violence soared too. You'd hear about not only about road blocks but also police checks of residence address at supermarkets too in case anyone dreamt of going to a different supermarket further away. It was extremely martial.

 

Actually it made me yearn for French soil and culture, having been born there and being half French, the other half British, it's so much more civilised there than Spain in many nice ways, (apart from lockdown which I gather was no picnic there either) for actually living long term as a solo foreign woman (I could and may write a book about my Spanish experiences along the lines of a horror story!). Even if not quite as sunny (a blessed relief in summer actually when temps can reach 40+C and people in the south flock north or to beaches wherever possible) France has been calling.. I was looking at rock bottom cheap places in France online and using Google maps to wander through various areas around central and SW France looking at various villages and roads and uploaded photos, and I recall seeing one of yours, I noticed your name and thought of you! I almost contacted you.. Can't remember where it was now exactly but how did you like your trips through France? I no longer have my motorhome so I've been fantasizing about ways to turn my Renault Kangoo into a mini camper.. but who knows, just feeling somewhat exhausted at the moment and enjoying being a lot more free with my 4 dogs!

 

Where did you like best on your French travels? How did you cope with lockdown in UK? I get a sense of mass confusion in UK.

 

Looking forward to hearing your news Carol

I thought it was only fairly recently that the law came in – 2010  “The DfT adds that it expects to remove that requirement contained in the Pedal Bicycles (Safety) Regulations 2010 and for bikes to be sold with a bell, and other rules including those relating to lights and reflectors plus the Pedal Cycles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1983 will also be reviewed..

 

I have bells on my bikes. They only go ting but they are there. I hate it when cyclists creep up behind you on a path where they are allowed and are surprised that you havent heard them. Wife and I were chatting, unusual for us, whilst on our daily walk down a farm drive the other day and didnt hear the car creeping up behind us, we know the chap driving and he had a bit of a laugh when I told him why we had ignored him.

So it seems, Peter, but not so when I was a kid. People were fined, like, 7/6 and 9d costs. And the courts did not then accept that a shout would do, as, I quote, “It does not identify a cycle as the threat.”

 

I have a bell, but it is surprising how some pedestrians on cycle paths react to the the tiniest ting-a-ling. They seem to assume that I want them to get out of my way when I am only indicating my approach.

Re: airconditioning

Derek Sims
 

We've just had an interesting "discussion" about this thread. I mentioned to Tish about Louisa's trick of hanging a freezer block in front of the fan. Her response was "Wouldn't that just make the fridge kick out more heat?" We have a compressor fridge which doesn't have external venting (Thank You Hymer). Thoughts, anyone?

I know it doesn't actually refrigerate the air - I had this huge unit
using similar system on a boat in which I used to live. Big area to
cool, it was ok but only when sat in front of it! Better when adding
ice to water. But for the small area of my tiny camper ?

In southern Spain in extreme heat I put a frozen fridge block in front of a fan so the air it blows is cooler and dry. It certainly helps to do that. Just replace the frozen block with another one when it's warmed up
