Still, manufacturers of all sorts of items are always changing and upgrading their specs so I guess that's what's happened here.
Yeah ours switches over to gas when hook up power is lost.

I've always ran the Fridge and Water Heater/Heating off gas, a few times a season to keep it in good nick.

It's use it or lose it.

You are joking, there isn't enough hair left up there to worry about never mind curling it

Van home from storage yesterday

Tyres pressure all done (all down about 4-5psi), fully charged battery put back in & jockey wheel replaced (long story - don't ask )
Not as dirty as I thought it would be TBH altho the back panel did look like a zebra as I had stored it 'nose high'
Altho the back 1/4 of the roof is pretty grim. TFR will shift that



We are away on the 12th April so no facilities are open including washing machines
The wife decided to spend her birthday money on this



Where I took the cheaper and overall better option for the thunderbox with my birthday money -



Should stop me wretching


'Are we still on the drive?'

Got ours home and cleaned at the weekend. She wasn't too bad, tyres needed a bit of air. No more mice since I plugged a hole I used to run a coax cable through, not sure if that's coincidence or not. Crawled under whole of the van but couldn't see anywhere else they could get in.

Not too sure when we'll be away yet, wife's new job ruins the early getaway on a Friday

Hope she doesn't see you can get portable washing machines, van is full of stuff already when travelling.

Have fun next week.

Our first trip away will be June although it is going to the dealers for a service and two new tyres in May. I wanted to get it in this month but they are fully booked almost every week and weekend between now and mid May
