    Hi all,
    I think I saw a thread somewhere on here, a while back, where someone posted a list of useful words in French and German, relating to Aires/Stelplatz sites. The words were the common ones used for Motorhome and Caravan owners, such as Fresh Water, Grey Water, Waste, etc. Could any kind person remember this thread, and point me in the right direction, please? Many thanks. BillyS :BigGrin:

    Sorry ... My queries are the same .... but in English ! Isn't world difficult to live in?:Laughing:

    I think that "je vais prendre une bière"!
    Vous avez des jetons pour l'eau ou l'electricité sur l'aire de repos??

    Où se font les vidanges des eaux usées et des toilettes s'il vous plait?
    BTW , I've learnt recently that as all the waters are cleaned and filtered the same way and at the same place , they all go through the same pipes. I thought we had grey waters pipes and black ones .... NO !


    Amicalement
