I'd recommend all Funsters who, if like me, are mechanically inept, to put this number into your mobile phone.

07415 953575 Alan - Direct Motorhome Services

Alan (DMS) is a long time Funster and motorhome enthusiast, who is also a qualified Auto Electrician/Technician. If you have a problem. He comes to you with a van stuffed with specialist tools and diagnostic equipment. He's an expert on the engine and running gear parts of your motorhome and how it interacts with the habitation. He also sells and fits batteries and inverters etc and attends many of the motorhome shows.

A thoroughly nice chap. If you ever have engine/electrical problems or need regular engine servicing, you'll be glad you put his number in your phone

I have to say Jim that I found this advice somewhat useless and redundant.........

.....but only because I've already got those contact details saved, following Alan saving my life (metaphorically if not physically) at the blizzard that was this weeks Newark show!

So fellow Funsters, whilst I won't be following Jims advice on this occasion I will wholeheartedly endorse the recommendation!

Yes I remember, Alan helped quite a few funsters out during that freezing weather. I think any money he made though, he spent in the Pig & Whistle
