    Id say the fact that it got damaged would suggest not :Wink:

    Oh and why not try your local sheet metal fabrications businesses, they would be able to replace any bent bits if needed

    Hi All a few of the posts on here today started me guessing, I am sure it has been started somewhere on here before? but what would you like on your MH to make your life just that little bit more bearable, my Oyster dish goes down at ignition so that it cannot get damaged, step alarms are a good idea but I personally would like a hose that retracts into the locker/ garage same with my EHU over to you knowledgable folk,please keep it clean and serious. ha ha as if!!!

    Would not use the word bearable (sounds like torture, we buy leisure products out of own free will) may be i would say EASIER , i only acquired my 1st/present MH 3 weeks ago, Still trying to undestand everything babitation/machanical before venturing out. may be a locally placed dealership would make life easier. Afterall you can not just take it to your local garage like you do with a car. So call professional help usually miles away, early days but my limited experiences with MH centres did not inspired confidence hence taking the DIY route 1ST TIME.
    Without the help from fellow funsters in this forum and one other forum:thumb: I wound be totaly lost

    Been there done that. First Day in Germany. Got step back with some effort.

    Got a replacement next day from https://sslrelay.com/olearymotorhom...nid=154be92239cbb71/shopdata/index.shopscript

    Brownhills quoted 6 to 8 weeks delivery. Price was better from O'Learys as well

    The step is even marked Hymer. I replaced the single step with a double for B Class. This made getting in and out of the S700 much easier.

    I'd like an awning that goes out and retracts at the press of a button. The A&E Awning that I currentley have was designed by a retard.

    I'd like some sewer hose that doesnt wrap itself around my neck when I'm tring to put it away.

    And yes, some water hose that is easily stowed.
