    Hello Everyone,

    I took the plunge in March 09 and bought a new motor home to take the kids out and about on adventures. One thing I have noticed since having the motor home its like being part of a huge family, when driving fellow motor homers always wave or flash their lights to acknowledge you. Our maiden trip was down to Burnham-on-Sea where I learnt from many first time mistakes, in particular hose pipe connections I didn't have the correct attachment for the tap. A fellow motor homer seeing me struggling came to my rescue and let me borrow his tap connection (many thanks to that Gentleman), I have since acquired every tap connection I could possibly need.

    I’ll say goodbye for now and look forward to our next adventure and meeting more fellow motor homers?

    Hi Lazydays and :welcome:welcome to MHFun.
    Lots of friendly folk on here, any questions just ask away, someone will know the answer. For first hand advice why not attend an MHFun meet or rally, both you and your kids will be made welcome and you will have a great time.:thumb:

    Mistake 1 - find you need something.

    Mistake 2 - find you can't get up hills with all the junk you are carrying.

    You know you are getting the hang of it when your garage starts filling and the MH gets lighter.

    All part of the fun.

    Waiting for the day we can get back full timing

    I have recently changed job and it means i have to reside in a cold old house.
    we so miss the friendly faces you wake up to every morning surrounding you on fields around the country. The morning sun gushing thro, the windscreen as you open the blinds, and just the simple freshness as you open the awning and flop in that big lounger with the little pooch just 1/2 a step behind scrambling to get in the chair before you do.
    The help we have had over the past few years has been tremendous since changing over to our RV the help has not been any less. we try to get away most weekends but at the moment I think I have an alternator problem, we returned from easter break in Cromer, drove about 70miles back home and turned off engine went into house came back 10mins later to take Rv to storage and the damn thing would not start. Had to jump start with my good old smart car. It did the same when i got to storage and had to jump start again.....
    Has anybody got any advise.. its a ford engine 7.4 +lpg conversion I cannot get at alternator myself to remove so looks like trying to find local Ford truck place to have a go.Its a newish battery maybe 6months old thats all and it charges fully with battery charger but will not start engine.....help please if possible

    You've tacked this onto someone elses intro thread.

    You might stand a better chance by going Forums American RV and click New Thread in there then all replies will be relavent - hopefully.

    I suppose you have checked that the battery is indeed flat and not just bad connections ?
