    12V Electrics for beginners 1-5 sept, as it says in the title a seminar to help beginners understand the 12V systems used in a motorhome, use of a multimeter understanding terms etc. As Devon is so far from most of you a 5 day rally will allow you to have a holiday in the area at the same time. I will be available for personal tution for the full 5 days though the main seminar will be on Sat/sunday. Bring your own meters or use mine I'll have a few different types for you to see and use. The tuition is free, camping at rally rates so £25 for the 5 days. Extra days available on request for a few vans (at rally rates).
    To be held at the Lazy Buzzard Campsite in Ilfracombe, Devon.

    Please reply to THIS thread to be added to the list.

    Hello Wildman

    Will you put us on your list. Malc will do the seminar, I can't because I'm deaf but I would really appreciate you showing me how to use a multimeter.

    Thanks

    Anne & Malc

    Be pleased to see you but do get subscribed as only subscribed members can attend rallies, all down to insurance I'm afraid. Still will save you pounds in the end.

    You know, thinking about this, starting off a bunch of wallies on the full 12V is simply reckless.

    I strongly suggest week one is on 1.5V then over the next few weeks ease them into the full 12V.

    You know it makes sense.

    Electrics for begginners 1-5 Sept

    Room for a couple of newbies and their cat?
    ( she's not interested in electrikery so no extra multimeters needed!)

    Great idea we're always struggling with our 12v system although I have some basic knowledge , the idea of having someone on hand to talk to is worth it's weight in gold. :thumb: Thanks
