    If they apply that markup across the board then a new Arapaho selling for around 75k cost them about 27k:BigGrin:

    It's obviously a manufacturer "thing"....they rely on people needing the accessories in a hurry after buying their lovely new motorhome. There's always some mug who'll accept those prices...

    ...speaking of which, Danbury are just as bad. I bought a 10m EHU cable from them that I reckon cost almost as much as you'd expect to pay for a 25m one :Doh:

    (And don't even ask me how much I paid for a habitation check from them. Never again:cry: None of their vans even have a 3-way fridge :cry: Maybe I'll change my username to 1_mug_and_his_dob(lo) :Blush:)

    When i worked offshore as a lifeboat service engineer, a hammer was missing from the toolbox, I picked up up a hammer from our supplier around the corner for about £5, I then saw the invoice for it £60 ish, they even charged for delivery even though Shell had another company on contract, all we had to was drive a couple of miles.

    I would pay the extra.

    It's not just a battery harness, it's an Autotrail battery harness.

    Must be worth the extra

    And that sums up the real problem folks.

    Don't give your dealer a kicking, give the manufacturer a kicking first.
