    Being new to this and are out for the first time next month, could anyone tell me what to do when leaving a pitch for the day. Do you just leave something to say it is your pitch.
    :Cool:

    Yeah the sites always say leave a marker if you take your motorhome off site during the day - I never have left one yet as never know what to leave. Surely whatever you leave leads the risk of being removed?

    Just make sure if you are on a C&C site that you do not leave your EHU lead plugged in, otherwise you will incur the wrath of the gods.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    It depends on the sort of pitch you are on!

    If it's a football pitch simply leave something hanging off the goalposts!:thumb:

    Some of our customers leave a chair or a mat but we are only a five van site so not much chance of your pitch being taken or anyone taking your stuff either. Just something on the pitch is usual !

    Utility tent.....no-one's likely to nick that :Smile:

    If I'm not pitching the tent....my grey water bucket pegged upside-down does the trick.

    I used to have a piece of plastic with my number plate scrawled on it.

    I used a notice which I printed out and laminated, then attached to a small bucket. The type you'd get paint, grout etc. Doesn't matter if nicked or - as I did and left it onsite on Isle of Wight. :cry:

    leaving pitch

    We leave a bucket full of water (in case of wind) and have painted our reg number on it.

    We've got one of them little signs on a peg but on hard standing just leave the mains lead, disconnected as has been said,

    Or just leave the van and get pi$$ed

    Enjoy :Smile:

    Best bet is to make or buy a sign that is personalised so can't easily be used by anyone else, I would NOT recommend leaving anything of any value on a pitch as we know from experience that even the most stupid things can be nicked at times ... including a bucket with a bag of dog poo in it!!! :whatthe:

    Leave a full Thetford loo cassette on the site, no one will park there.

    maybe not but at 60 odd quid a time it sure as hell will go walkabout. :Eeek:

    as in another post, even a bucket with dog shite in it got nicked.

    never leave anything with a value of more than £0.00...it will get stolen/borrowed.
