    We have been away south for 8 days and first to go was blind spring.
    The second was melted spotlight.
    The third large sliding table mechanism, any ideas where we might find new mechanism, it's really the 2 strips on the right of pic that are bent. 20150914_192722.jpg 20150911_162236-1.jpg

    You will get those through anyone that supplies Kitchen fittings they are just large drawer runners take a look on eBay.

    You should be able to get them as heavy as the ones you need to replace they come in all sorts of size.

    With the light I would change to a LED to stop it happening again, plus reduced amps used and less risk of a fire,

    Warning, this post will in no way help you, but it might make you feel better!

    On our last European tour, I broke the following:
    The toilet cassette
    The Habitation Door retaining arm.
    After bodged repair of the above, the habitation door seal
    My daughters camping chair
    The gearbox

    Ok, the gearbox was already pretty weak, but I did make it worse :D
    Only just finished fixing everything, and we've been home for over a month now!

    You can always see a MH parked in a B&Q car park ........... sometimes think the whole thing is held together with super glue!
