    hi I thought it would be a good idea instead off top tips or common asked questions is to have basic question s answerd in section for newbies ie a title saying ............ HOW TOO... this would be easy base for new members or campers visting this site ... so start the heading HOW TOO...hook up properly or filling your water tank
    or empty the portaloo in chemical waste or dropping the grey water all basic question s that new campers will need to know when they camp for first time you all have to start somewhere:RollEyes: what do you think!!??

    Good idea Ray.....
    It is surprising how quickly we forget about the thosands of daunting questions we all had before our first outing, all things which we now do routinely and take for granted, so a simple "HowTo" section would be a great bonus for beginners.
    You have just volunteered to start it off by the way :Laughing::Laughing:

    Hi Ray,
    I think that's a great idea.
    There were, and still are,many daunting things that present themselves when starting out, and, with the mass of experience on a site like this, there must be someone who can answer.
    I know that when I bought my first Motorhome I was VERY conscious of making a P**t of myself on-site.
    Regards Steve.

    I think we all do at some time or another.
    As long as we can have a laugh about it on the way:BigGrin:
    That's life.
    How boring it would be if everything went to plan:rofl:

    That would be soooooooo useful

    We are off for the first long journey in France in a week and having only spent 2 nights in our van am quite expecting to make a lot of mistakes.

    I have asked basic questions, but until we meet the problems we dont even know what questions to ask.....

    I lie awake worrying if we are going to remember everything
