    Just quoted that law in a reply to another thread
    Motor Holmes Law States That

    If your hose is 30 foot you will be 31 foot from the tap

    If you need to level by 4" you will have 3" ramps

    If you do remember the cork screw your bottles will have screw caps

    Any More::bigsmile:

    If you choose a nice quite corner of a deserted CL or Aire ... the next person will park up close .. and decant with a mob of kids and two dogs.. :Doh:

    The battery goes flat during a good movie:cry:

    The genny won't start when you have a crowd of on-lookers:Blush:

    You run out of LPG late at night or first thing in the morning:Angry:

    You park with a good view.. then a dirty great RV gin palace comes and spoils it :roflmto:

    You decide to have a nap in the sunlounger .. the warden decides to cut the grass with a ride-on mower around your pitch. :RollEyes:



    lots more, but I'll leave a few for the others... :ROFLMAO:

    puting out the awning

    Putting out the awning to find the wind comes from the wrong direction.

    Park tonear the trees and the Saterlite will not pick up.

    the elctric hook up tree in europe is full with 10 plugs on a 6 hole tree.

    having the wrong type of connector in France

    The LPG adapter will not fit the delivery unit in the petrol station.

    The Pump which you must get on due to location of the fuel tank is not working when you get beside it.

    Yes I am sure Geo hundreds of them
