    The more I read on this site the more I realise there is so much I don't know how to do, so I wondered if anyone knew of any (very!) basic motorhome maintenance courses available. I've done a quick google search but can't see anything appropriate. Or maybe one of the more technically experienced members would fancy running one (for a fee)?

    Any ideas/suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

    This keeps coming up on my to do list and I must get round to it next year.:Doh: Trouble is our rally calendar gets so full there's barely a spare weekend and when there is you want it off.. But

    I want to arrange some gatherings/rallies around different themes.

    Motorhome Maintenance
    Motorhome Security
    First Time to France
    Motorhome Full timing
    Photography etc

    I'm sure they would be very popular. As next years days are already filling th calendar I'll see what i can organise.

    Jim I think it would be a good idea to show the following to people

    1. Fit electrics
    2. Fit water system
    3. Build some furniture

    To help I have a van here that you are welcome to use as it just happens to need the above finishing :BigGrin:

    You should have been in Marjal at the 2012 rally where Frankie (Yodeli) did Paella on the cadac and then Steve (Salopian) did Moules :thumb:
    This year 2013 in New year at Marjal Carolyn gave a Master Class in omelette making on a Cadac :BigGrin:

    We do, every day. When have you a seen problem go unsolved round here ?

    From a broken engine in France to leaky taps in the Hebrides FUN can solve it.
