    If it was Motorhome Fun all you would need is two, one to hold the step ladder and one to put the bulb in.

    Is the light bulb in a woosie, weekend and holidays motorhome parked at a campsite with EHU or...

    ...a rufty, tufty, off site, fulltiming, freeloader's motorhome parked where no one can see the grey water emptying out of the tank?

    If the latter, and it is in mainland europe, get the EU to give you a grant to pay for an electrician to do it.

    Then take photos and post on Fun to get ShiftZZ all excited!

    If parked in the UK just send the bill to Far Rage and get him to pay for it out of all the tens of thousands of euros he has been paid by the organisation he says he wants to leave...

    JJ :Cool:

    Light bulbs are so yesterday!! Surely it would have been changed to a LED by now.
