    Well after dumping both my leisure batteries after about 30 hours over the weekend at newark, Blisters kindly lent me a Honda eu10 genny to recharge.
    This state of the art peice of equipment was exactly that, state of the art. I was really amazed at how quiet it was and how good a job it done.
    Jim then popped up with the you can't beat a honda and they can be converted to LPG.
    Mind then ticks over and over,
    whop bang whallop,
    My pocket is now seriously lighter, the moths have flown away, but I now have a nice Honda eu10 for my wild camping and motorhome shows. All i need now is a good chain to prevent it being stolen,

    So thanks guys for making me see the light.:thumb::thumb::thumb:
    even if has cost the earth:Eeek::Eek!::Angry:

    Being a tight wad and owning a Kipor, you may think I'm going to give you an argument:Sad:
    But the fact is I cant, Honda are without doubt the best and you have chosen to go that route, just don't park near me:Eeek: there ain't a chain made I cant get through:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Gas convetion

    Hi guys
    I purchased our hondA FROM Edge Technology already converted to gas. They sell the gas convertions for £145 aprox. There service was very good, and can recommend them.
    Gas is half the price of petrol, which softens the blow just a little, and saves having to carry petrol around loose in a can ? :thumb:

    Sorry we did not meet at Newark but hope to see you at Peterbourgh.

    Hi Keith, I did see you but was a bit busy talking to people, I recognised your lovely van from the S****horpe meet. I know of edge technology as they are 5 mins drive from me. Blisters (graham) told me of them and I willl get the gas kit as soon as the blow of purchasing such an expensive bit of kit softens.:thumb:

    hi Paul and long suffering Nikki

    I agree these shows are good for socializing but bad for the pocket, we weren't planning on buying anything at Newark, but spent £200 on bits n bobs.

    We did however save some money by thinking and not buying, whilst at the show there was a guy selling a 5 litre metal Jerry can, i thought good idea to carry the petrol in for the genie, but at £30 a little steep, so came home and got one from one of our trade suppliers for £15 plus vat:thumb:, if you want one let me know and i'll get you one, I'll be at Peterborough.

    I also bought a gennie, for the same reason - flat batteries at Newbury) though not a classy Honda one. Mine is made in China and cost less than £70 including VAT and next day delivery.
    You can see it at Newbury (I expect you'll hear it anyway:Rofl1:)

    I'll let you know what it's like after a trial.

    good idea Ian but where are you gonna store it, when travelling, with an extra 18" of metal hanging out the side:Doh:

    i have it on my genny and it fits into side locker of MH, as it is a flat sheet of metal once you have it in you can then set the rest of your managery on top of it.

    PRO USER|G850|GENERATOR, 850W We purchased one of these too but it has not been used yet, we first bought one of the larger ones from Aldi's but realises it was to say just a tad too big:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    pappaohn's idea is brilliant!

    Perhaps if limited for storage space/weight would one bar across n one down of narrowish flat iron or like poss work ?

    Sorry if this idea is dumb :Doh: but knowing how easy chains can be hacked thought it may be of use
