    Hi

    I'm new to motorhoming and am currently looking to purchase my first motorhome.
    I've seen a 2005 Burstner that looks perfect for my requirements and price range, but I've read a few postings about problems with the e-box in Burstners.

    Anyone out there who could please advise on this problem? Is it a common problem?

    Also any general advise on how to check if there are any problems with the electrics when viewing potential motorhomes?

    Many thanks :RollEyes:

    Fun!

    Hi All,

    We finally got sorted and picked up our new (to us) motorhome Saturday morning and had to go away for the night straight away!
    So far, so good everything was worked perfectly- a minor mishap in that I knocked the socket circuit breaker switch off when putting stuff in the wardrobe, but we phoned the previous owners and they soon set us straight!
    All in all fantastic and we can't believe we didn't get one sooner.
    We were very sad to leave our new vehicle at the storage site (as was our dog!) but were wondering if you have any short term storage tips?

    If we are leaving the van for the week in summer should we empty all the fresh water or leave it in?
    Any other tips for short term summer storage?

    Thanks :Smile:

    Hi Sophie,


    Exciting times ahead :BigGrin:
    There are plenty of Funsters that use storage so I'm sure you'll get a few tips. The water won't mind being in your holding tank for a while so leave it there, especially if you don't have a tap at the storage site to fill up before you go on a trip.

    I feel sorry for you guys that have to use storage. We have always been lucky enough to be able to park the motorhome at home, I probably go it it every day, sometimes I use it as a quiet office, or I sneak off for a kip. :BigGrin:
