As something is draining the battery the Autosleeper won't start. The battery is dead so I couldn't take it for diagnosis. I found a mobile mechanic on Yell.com and asked him to come and look at it. He was very obliging and fitted me in right away. For the time being he's disconnected the battery and will come back at the end of the week to sort it out. He is a pleasant chap who was born and brought up in Bulgaria but now settled here. Friday is Boxing day, he says he loves his work - that's a real man thing! As I suspected the alarm buzzer linked to the Omnistor step is draining the battery. Emil says it has been connected directly so wonder it won't hold it's charge. When I bought the caravan secondhand from Hampshire Motorhomes I asked them to fit the step along with other extras. This company is run by a father and son. My suspicions should have been aroused at the time because during the fitting the radio had been disconnected and as there wasn't a code it was useless. I splashed out on a much better one. And then I had problems when it came to renewing the road fund licence. I'd not got the relevant documents because they probably hadn't posted the change of ownership paperwork. Fortunately there is a DVLA office in Portsmouth so I didn't have far to go. When I renewed the leisure battery, I did it myself and found that they'd fitted a car battery suitable for a Renault. Guess what? I remembered that one of them drove a Renault. Other things bothered me like not clearing up after themselves properly. I could have got Hampshire Motorhomes to sort my problems out but I really don't want them anywhere near it.
