    A couple of nights ago at around 2am (after a late night session in the chat room; great fun; you should try it if you haven't already) the Hymer started rocking gently. It felt as if someone was trying to get my attention. I looked out but saw nothing other than the moonlit Algarve sky. I thought I must have imagined it but, no, there it was again...

    Now I start thinking someone is climbing up onto the roof (but I never thought anyone was about to put gas through the skylight!) so I sit very still and listen intently. Nothing.

    The panic passes and I go to bed and have sweet dreams.

    I learn the explanation the next afternoon as I take a coffee in the Anazu Cafe in Tavira.

    "Did you feel the earth quake last night? It rocked my house and things nearly fell off the shelf in the kitchen..."

    Nice to hear your MH rocks occasionally even if it takes an earthquake to rock it :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    the reason you didnt think gas is because you thought - eeeeek!!!! hymie has gone and got itself into that wobberly blue stuff and that you were gently rocking with the tidal sway

    Hi john-A,

    With my weak back and knees it's only ever going to be earthquakes and gassers on the roof (or Metallica and Judas Priest on the stereo) rocking the Dream Machine these days.

    Let's hope you get your motorhome in good time for years and years and years of traditional "rocking" John!!!

    Hahaha never wake up to a rocking mh. Woke up to the bed rocking about 6/7 years ago and SWMBO complaining "what was that", "it's an earth quake dear go back to sleep" what a racket!!! What a reaction, I'm not normally that laid back ....but at least the house was still standing. :Rofl1:

    You mean you haven't got anti-earthquake suspension in your van? It was one of the first extras I asked for on my MH! lolx
