    Was just wondering if anyone's had trouble with their alarms etc while out and about, Have one on my motorbike and certain places (ponderosa) it activates ie near a phone mast or at the docks waiting to get on a ferry and immobilise the bike, now I know all I have to do is push my bike further down the road/quay and it works ok but it would be different/awkward if this also happens with a motorhome alarm. Anyone had any experiences of this ????.
    Thanks, Dave

    Had a problem at home once, the button on our wireless doorbell had stuck in, the bell stopped ringing but the button kept transmitting, the alarm on the car and motorhome would not work. I took the car to B&Q and bought a new battery for the fob, All worked OK until I took the car back home. I then tried the motorhome and that did not work either. It took me some time to find the stuck button on the bell. Then all fine.

    Had a problem on the CC site at Crystal Palace.

    Basically the remote fob did not work properly. The emergency key - an electronic key that connects to a socket on the dash - did work but not until the alarm had gone off whilst opening the doors with the normal key.

    After we left crystal palace all was well again.

    I concluded that the problem was radio interference from the huge TV transmitter that is just next to the CC site.
