  1. Question about where to store stuff !

    European motorhomes have garages and the UK manufacturers rely on under the bunks and small batches to the outside . This year is the first year a few UK motorhomes have seen the light and like the Europeans have lifted the rear bed and put in a garage . Dave
  2. Your need a sky box and if it is a manual system then your need a sat finder meter and a compass to find 28.2 East .
  3. it was the question you posted that ask about watching Ski programmes that made everyone think you wanted to watch sport channels .😁 Dave
  4. Best of Both

    I had a jockey wheel slide down on my toad trailer behind my motorhome and wreck the jockey wheel although I considered it tight enough . So as a precaution now to stop it possibly happening again I measured the tube diameter 48 mm for mine and ordered a locking collar off eBay which I locked on with a Allen key which is set once that when the jockey wheel up and is parked in its slot and on the tow all the jockey wheel can't hit the road but can still be wound down to unhitch and operate . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Q-Clamp-LOCKING-COLLAR-Pipe-Key-Fitting-Kee-Handrail-2-34mm-3-42mm-4-48mm-179-/272728327643?redirect=mobile Dave

    Germany is the first European country to introduce emission restriction bans on motorways as well as cities and I would think other countries will follow . Dave
  6. Just Ordered New Motorhome

    Have fun David !! Now it's time to start planning a shakedown tour ? Dave
  7. Air Suspension

    Just a update . Had VB rear semi air suspension fitted with the comfort pack with the air compressor under the driver's seat and the controls and gauges in the dash so the rear can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button . The ride has been improved by less movement passing lorries and less lean at roundabouts and in wind on site . The rear can now be raised a good 6 inches so gives good clearance under my towbar on ramps . Fitted cost about £1000 by Solar solutions (airide) . http://www.solarsolutionsltd.co.uk Dave
  8. A-Frames

    I have read that police don't take the fact you are only driving during daylight notto fit deflectors as it is a requirement that headlights are used under some driving conditions during daylight . If think we will see a increase of stopping and fining after March when we part company . Dave
  9. Air Suspension

    Price will vary on the type of system if just a couple of air bags fitted to the rear and the piping brought to a foot well area and a couple of valves to pressure the system or cost more if the system has a control system and gauges and 12 v compressor fitted . Basic system is a few hundred quid . With a overhang and towbar I would like to be able lift the rear on occasion. Dave
  10. Alloys or Not?

    I use tyremen when buying spare wheels for my motorhome . They are very helpful and supplied with new bolts . https://www.tyremen.co.uk/motorhome-wheels Dave

  12. Euro 6 Engine Oil for Fiats

    This Australia video shows Selenia WR 5W - 40 . Dave
  13. Towing a car in France

    Reports on other forums of 135 euro fine so it would need to be illegal for a police fine Not worth the risk I would save the money on a A frame and vehicle conversions and go for the trailer . Dave
  14. Fiat Lunar 58

    You could calculate it . You just need to change the values to suit your vehicle and tyres . On the side of the tyre is a rating XXX kg at XX psi . Example 900 kg at 90 psi . 900 kg X 4 wheels = 3600 kg divide by mtplm (3500 kg ) = 1.03 90 psi divide by 1.03 = 87 psi . Dave
