    Was told about this place by my oldest dearest friend.....Hi Tony in Cornwall :thumb:

    Having survived on motorcycles for 40+ years, a few weeks ago I had my first accident that was totally down to me. The combination of having to modify my line on a right-hand corner, a vicious bump in the middle of the corner, and kerbing to my left saw me pitch it into de briar patch - well, nettles actually.....:Sad:

    So SWMBO said, let's spend the write-off money and get ourselves another campervan/motorhome.

    Our last one was stolen in Rome a few years ago, and we never replaced it. Until now.....!

    She found a Transit LWB on an 05 plate for the right money, and apart from an insipid blue interior, it's a good 'un. It needs a few minor things doing to it, like I can't see a leisure battery anywhere, and it has an unusual ZIG-type unit that isn't a ZIG if you get my drift.

    The whole shooting match was originally a 9 seater, and has been converted by Auto Sleeper. Pics to follow if anyone is interested.

    I'm known as WD on other forums, so why spoil the habits of a lunchtime eh.....!

    Gee, there goes the neighborhood....
    Honestly, they'll let anyone join in here these days !

    Hello David and Di,
    and welcome to the world of chemical bogs and mossies...
    Quite why anyone would leave a perfectly good house
    to poo and wash in a tin box in a field beats me but then we are all different.
    *
    Lots of nice folk in here. A few nymphomaniac women...
    but if you avoid them you're fairly safe.

    Maybe catch you in the Quiz on Thursday?
    Happy trails.

    Tony

    :Smile:

    Oooh harsh!..
    See what I have to put up with David?


    They're horrid to me sometimes...

    And this woman and her chums always distract me when the quiz is on..
    It's so unfair!
    I also suspect they influence the quiz-master with their wiles...
    Know whorri mean?

    Seems I can't edit an existing post of my own, i.e., the one above......

    Still, no matter.

    Just wanted to say I found the leisure battery next to the main bettery under t'drivers seat.
    Do they die like ordinary batteries if they discharge too far?

    I'm enjoying this site - a veritable goldmine of information and stuff

    There is an "Edit Post" button, but I think it disappears from any posts you've made once you log out.

    What-ho squiffy,
    You found the bally battery then?
    well done that man.
    you got split charge system ?
    If not, it's possible the battery is FUBB, as we say in the trade :BigGrin:
    A discharge test will reveal all..

    I think you can edit the post if you are quick and you give a reason for editing.
    Not sure what happens if you do log on and off again...
    It's all a black art these internetz...
