    Oh oh, is this a negative for aires, everybody is so keen on them normally

    If he wont turn it off having no site owner to complain to could be an issue I guess

    Heres hoping it is only on a for a bit of charging before dark :)

    we are setting off in October planning to use aires for the first time, not the sort of feedback I wanted :D

    have you got the France passion book as well, really is worth it, if you are on aire you don't like have a look in the FP book. We were at a vineyard last night, we are on another tonight

    in fact we do tend to use more fp than Aires, especially if we don't need to fill up

    just cover it with soil that will make it go quiet, or some expanding foam up the exhaust pipe.

    Been to have words when genny ran out of petrol and he refilled and started again. My schoolboy frenchdid not run to "is it going to be running all night"! Fortunately they had a friend who spoke english. She explained they had a problem with their fridge and it only works on mains. It wont be running all night and they moved it to the other side of their MH. A shame really as this is a nice quiet location in a nice setting.

    Just looking to see how far Parc Verger is. We should be off to Brantome tomorrow ready for the market on Friday. Maybe next week.

    We were at a rally this weekend and was staggered by the number of generators running - a couple were quietish but some were very noisy. Some were charging mobility scooter batteries but some seemed to just be powering lights - I've never been anywhere with so many running at once :(
