    There was a recent blog on " aching ankles", after lots of suggestions Dave Newell came up with" why not fit cruise control? ". Having approached my Citroen dealer who said " no Way" I phone Dave who said "yes it can be done" so I booked it in for today, Friday 15that 09:00 hrs.
    I arrived Early, rather be a hour early than I minute late, at 08:10 hrs." Two hours" it will be ready.
    At 09:15hrs, he told me all done and dusted. Ho what joy, having had C C on my works delivery van I was pretty well conversant with CC but it was heaven to drive home.

    I have read on this site saying that CC is not good for fuel savings. Well I found that the 2 liter works van returnered a 50 MPG. Ok, perhaps not typical, but I believe that a computer is better and more sympathetic than my right foot.

    Anyway, I had a brilliant drive home. To you, Dave Newell, thank you, you are my hero. ( the mpg increased as well):thumb:

    Had to cancel having a CC fitted by Dave (our second) a few weeks ago due to the bad weather, but will be rearranging it again shortly.
    Top Man.........
    Cheers, Dave:thumb:

    Can't remember exactly for the work Dave did for us without looking it up but it was certainly very good value for money - especially with Funster discount :Smile:

    When we bought our Elddis new in 2011 it didn't have cruise control as standard.
    Got in touch with Peugeot and they said "no chance".
    E-mailed Dave Newell and he said "No problem".
    Job was done shortly afterwards by a very friendly and helpful Mr and Mrs Newell and worked perfectly.
    Top team.

    Dave did our cruise control on the Wildax when we got it in October. Made our drive down to Zahora in November a dream - no aching ankles! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Excellent job - Dave and Jackie - great team! :Smile::Smile:

    What a refreshing change.

    To read all this it just proves there are people who give service.

    Well we meet Mel and Chris ( Heyupluv - member on here ) in December who told me all about their fitting experience and how pleased they were. So as I said we are waiting until June ( have not booked yet with Dave ) to have the Alugas fitted to our MH. Just wish he did Maxview manual systems as would have that fitted as well by him.

    We will make a 400 mile out of our way trip because of what we had heard about his service.

    Word of mouth so worth so much these days.

    And any of you who are wondering what to do while the work is being carried out, it's a great day out going round Blists Hill Museum as well as the othrr visitor attractions in Telford.

    I had a retrofit cruise control fitted by Conrad anderson of Birmingham, a very wise investment due to my sciatica. Couldnt live without it.
    Happy cruising. Phil
