    Well after ages of saving, looking, dreaming etc I`ve gone and bought my first moho. It`s a Hymer B544 bought from funster Portland. A great couple to deal with so big thanks to Derek and June (y)
    Now I`ve just got to figure everything out, he explained everything but of course most went in one ear and out the other ! He did say I could keep in touch so no doubt I`ll have some numty questions for him when I`m stuck.
    I`m off to start reading all the instruction books now ............:eek::eek::eek:

    When you have read the instruction book, remember people on here can still advise you.

    I have never found an instruction book that explains everything.

    Good luck and welcome!(y)

    Yes it`s sitting on the drive now and i`m looking forward to having a play around tomorrow !
    I live only about 8 miles from Derek so it`s been really convenient (others i liked the look of were miles away usually Dorset or Hampshire !) Never went to look thought as too far away.

    Seriously good choice, the only one I'd swap ours for.

    Welcome,

    nine months after buying my van I have finally read the instructions....the control panel had a switch 'arret' and 'marche' (stop/ go in French) - the van is French.....was going to ask the forum what it was for.......instructions show wiring to panel..................the switch is marked 'not connected' !
    :doh::doh::doh::doh:

    so ask away, there are no dumb questions
