    Good for you, more motorhome owners should follow. Don't they just love rules for rules for rules. Next thing we will only be allowed to exit the van three times a day.

    I think that's fair enough, 4 hours a day is enough for anyone I would have thought, that's why we have leisure batteries. :Smile:

    Just been away last weekend with them, and the rule was not before 9am and not after 6pm and from Thursday until Monday we had very little solar and 1 and a 1/2 hours with the genny. :thumb:

    Maybe different groups have different rules, but out of all the vans there, no one had a problem. :thumb:

    When we asked what the rules were with generators, he told us the times. :Wink: I told him my genny did not make as much noise as my solar panel screaming. :Rofl1::Rofl1: Bob.

    It states no loud generators allowed at all so its ok if you have solar panels however i don't & i like to watch my telly at night whilst charging my shaver & other bits & pieces i agree not before 8 in the morning & after 10 at niight which i think happens at most shows i also believe in live & let live & if yoou want total peace & quiet why go to a campsite anyway not all of us can afford a solar system cheers Rod

    DID YOU KNOW :BigGrin: You can get an 80w panel and fit it yourself for £140...!! :Wink:
    SHH.... Dont tell everyone..
    I know there are some very considerate users of Gennies but also some real pains.
    My solar would struggle on a long stationary rally in poor weather but I manage my available power to suit...
    ANYWAY, What you doing watchin TV, thought all you funsters were party animals. :thumb:

    If i attempted to change a fuse i would blow the house up & even funsters have to watch football from time to time & on dark winter evenings when the sun don't shine its so good to have alternative power the wife gets a bit fed up with having to pedal faster when the battery starts to drop:Rofl1: cheers Rod

    If it's a "silent generator", how would they know if it's on - or not

    It sounds like you're saying that only wild-camping is peaceful. I've been on plenty of sites (even club sites) that have been quiet...of course, there were no generators running.

    I think if I was on a site where somebody kept running their generator during a summer evening because they wanted to watch X-Factor/Coronation Street or complete the next level of Angry Birds, while I was sitting outside trying to relax, I'd be moving elsewhere.

    I'm not sure of the validity of that point :Smile:

    Supply and install of a single 80 watt panel, regulator and all associated wiring, £375 inc VAT; no running costs.
    Kipor IG1000 Generator, £349 Incl. VAT; petrol £1.40 per litre ongoing running costs.

    Each to their own though. At the end of the day, whatever the rules say, proper consideration should be given to one's neighbours whether camping or at home.

    Hi GJH,
    Where do you get panel, regulator, wiring and install for £375 inc VAT Please? My local dealer wanted £420 for the kit and 4 hours to install at £200. Perhaps they didn't really want the job?:cry:

    We bought the stuff required and our resident funster Ash fitted it for us at one of the shows, didnt take him 4 hours and he is very good.
    Check ebay for the kit panels,brackets,wiring, gland and regulator - then find someone to fit and you will get it all and done for under the 350mark - some funsters that are handy (diy) have even fitted the kit themselves.
