    Set off yesterday on our winter trip making our way to the tunnel ….. its true they come in 3s


    1 st fault The engine warning light came on going up hills it was a fault with the Turbo wastegate pivot pin ( cleaned and lubricated ) ok now .


    2nd fault head light going off bad connection ( replaced connectors ) ok now

    3rd fault habitation water pump leaking ( replaced pump ) ok now



    Now at Blackhorse farm CC Site waiting to catch the tunnel in the morning hope that’s all the bad luck gone . lol

    Watch out for sap dropping !!
    If you do get zapped raw alcohol gets the crap off real easy :)
    We have found a lot of camp site shops in Spain and Portugal sell little bottles of it ( so I guess they are aware of the problem and the answer :) )
