We used Osmand maps to travel about ....most sat navs seem to charge a lot for Morocco Maps but Osmand is free.
When about are you crossing?Be aware when crossing to Tanger Ville. You have to drive through the middle of the city, no real problem, but on the way out you (& in) you have to drive up a long incline with several sets of traffic lights where local youths suddenly appear and hitch a joyride on the back of trucks, motorhomes and even caravans!!! Jumping off at the next set of lights then back on until they get to the top then cross over and do the same back down. They will cling on to anything, bikeracks, ladders, skylights etc. They think it's a great game especially when you try to chase them off but return as soon as you get back into the van. I intend to use the Tanger med crossing this time!!!
ThanksThe LPG is Morocco is quite clean. I used the large bottle's of Butane this year with no issues. However, I did fit a LPG filter between the gas bottle and connecting hose.
GAS IT vapour filter has been designed to work well with the Propex underslung gas tanks, as fitted to VW panel vans, as they use a 8mm outlet pipe which runs from the multivalved gas tank to the gas regulator. - GAS IT Leisure Gas Bottles, Gas Cylincers and Gas Tanks - Catering, Motorhome, Campervan, Caravan, Farrier and Road Repair Refillable Gas Solutions.Our GAS IT vapour filter has been 100% designed to work with the Propex vw and other van's underslung gas tanks. The propex gas tank as fitted to VW panel vans mainly, use a 8mm outlet pipe which runs from the multivalved gas tank to the gas regulator. It stop any dirt from leaving the propex...www.gasit.co.uk
You can get spare filter papers and seals from the same company.
Taking your dogs and daughter should not present a problem, just do your research and get your dogs vaccinations done. As for joining a convoy, yes a good idea on your first crossing, keep it small as if large there is going to be disagreements and your trip could be spoiled. Once you have crossed you can safely travel on your own. We do it all the time. Two motorhomes travelling together also works well providing you can agree in advance where to go etc., etc.,Contemplating a trip over mid to late Jan with wife, daughter and two dogs. Just started researching whether taking daughter and dogs is a good idea. Will be following the thread with interest. Also would consider joining a convoy
Just decide beforehand how many camels you want for the wife/daughter. I got an Arab up to 25 camels for the wife but called it off when we couldn't get them into the garage..........Taking your dogs and daughter should not present a problem,
We took this hose but were very careful with the gas and did not need to use it in the end.If anyone is worried about gas, I found the easiest way for me, was to buy a hose from gaslow. One end attaches to your external fill point, and the other directly connects to a Moroccan or french bottle with a spanner.
I think you will find the gas is quite clean in Morocco. I put 2 13 KG bottles through my system this year and when cleaning the flue after my return found it to be free of soot. Also, I used Butane without a problem, although did not enter Tafroute until mid Feb. I also used one of these between the gas bottle and Gaslow hose which may explain why no soot in the flue.We took this hose but were very careful with the gas and did not need to use it in the end.
I presume Theonlysue you had no problems with supposed "dirty gas clogging up your system"
Did you find that you had to wait until the refillable was completely empty before attaching the Moroccan bottle ???
It's so grim and grey at the moment I can't wait to set off again..........let's hope "you know what " doesn't mess up green cards and insurance (and the rest)
As far as I'm aware at the moment there is nowhere in Morocco that has the necessary equipment, i.e. a pump connection, to enable recharging refillable systems, which is why I and others use the method above. Motorhomes simply aren't a big enough market for the oil companies to invest in the equipment involved.Is LPG to fill underslung tank available fairly readily?
But what are you going to do then? IMO you should make some provision, even if it's only buy the hose and Camping Gaz adapter.To be fair, if not needed for heating and only for fridge and maybe cooking occasionally then we can probably go at least 4 weeks
