    IT IS THE BEST FORUM!!

    As some of you will know, I'm having a little gas issue whilst on my travels in France and posted a thread asking for help. The responses and offers of help I had were amazing and that's down to you guys and gals!

    How amazing is it to be guided to where other funsters may be able to help and then when I get here welcomed by Lisa for a coffee and then be invited by Steph (Munchies) and Ken to dinner? I'm so touched by all this kindness.

    You are all what makes this forum so special, there to help even though we may not have met. This is what really makes the world go around and I, for one, am going to hang on to that :)

    Thank you to one and all

    I hope I can return the favour one day

    Bridget

    Well done the Munchies :clap2:

    (Not to detract from what they've done, I'm sure other FUNsters would be happy to do the same in similar circumstances.)

    Normally members aren't allowed to meet Ken @Munchie for the first couple of years, don't like scaring new members off.

    P.S very nice of you both Ken and Steph, well done.

    Sprouts in France? Or do the Munchies have a secret allotment down there where they are growing them? Choux de Bruxelles apparently, but do the locals eat them or are they just grown for decoration or throwing at the English?

    Whenever I speak to non members of the group, I'm sure they don't think it's possible that the help and assistance is so quickly and readily forthcoming. Not only have I had the kind of help that has saved me money, my knowledge of motorhomes has increased way beyond anything I could have read in a book!

    No problem found.
    Bright blue flame, no leaks probably wind blowing fumes in.
    Will get a CO monitor today

    Ken @Munchie
    I might not explane this very well.
    On my Rapido I had a problem with CO/Gas
    I had it all checked and found out there should have been a spinge seal
    In the floor where the gas pipe comes up to the fridge.
    Its about 25cm long x 1.5 cm wide.
    This had gone down and no longer sealed rhe gap.
    I dont know if its the same or not.
    But when I had the broblem it was also very windy.(outside)

    Happy to see that all is smoothly going on!
    Also happy if I have been of some help....
    Don't forget to tell me @Bridget if you decide to give a go to Narbonne Accessoire so I can explain before you go....and may be have an appointment even!
    Wishing you Ken And Colin to find the leak if any, or at least why it smells so much(may be empty bottle! It usually stinks!!)
