I keep on finishing the insulation. Yesterday it was just 1 self adhesive bit on the back doors and aluminium taped edges. Today I was busy laying paviors in the garden so nothing in the camper.

I need to take the N/S front wheel off and free off the caliper slides as the brakes binding. 🤬

Same here looks awkward to get at, when not in use have stopped putting the blinds fly screen units down after 25 years the unit are getting a bit tired.

installed a new 230v outlet under the French bed & fitted a Numax 10A charger to replace the original,
which crapped out on me this winter in Portugal.
looked at some Chinese chargers at half the price of the Numax......very mixed reviews on Amazon.
decided to take trevskodas advice....... very pleased with the results.

I went outside I looked at it I stroked it gently with a tear in my eye I assured Snoopy 2 any day now we will let his rubber shoes feel the warm tarmac on the M1/M6/ A1/ A64/M62 he shall feel a cool sea breeze on his outer skin and the warm steam in his inside as we boil the kettle for a brew with view 😢😢 soon Snoopy soon. 😘

Been busy on Hetty over the last 12 weeks, I went to my brothers who has a workshop & stayed in lockdown there. I bought the partially converted van, Only cupboards & bench (no mattress just a bench), replaced the internal MDF cupboard doors to bespoke lightweight ones that my brother made for me (with my help). Had a cooker/sink & gas bottle & cupboard put in, new fuse box for auxiliary battery, replaced the curtain that I put in to hide the loo with a removable door (again lightweight). Put a pump in for the water tap, connected it all up & built a cupboard to house 2 10 litre water bottles. Made access to under bench seat, not much space, awkward to get to, so only put things I rarely use in it. Replaced the white vinyl & blue fablon that was damaged & also fablon on the doors. now home & looking forward to getting away in her to try it all out...pic 1. Is the door frames being made. Last pick is my brother on the router doing the frames for the cupboard doors...

Washed and polished it. Even cleaned the roof. New carpet fitted. New Maxview Vu Cube satellite system fitted after some great info and support from a great company in Rowlands Gill. 600 channels in one press of a button. Mirror protectors ordered. MOT and service sorted. All ready to go. Wifes on furlough im not so im all ready when Boris pulls the pin and i can wild again. Shame the missus likes campsites better than wilding.

Happy you liked it,you can take a second pos lead though a fused switch to the starter battery so both get a charge.
