The motorhome is through her MOT with no advisories. I know it should not have been a problem but there is always that little niggle :)

They were supposed to do the hab check as well but are short staffed and running behind with a job that needs to be finished today (the people go on holiday tomorrow) so I said I would take her in on Thursday just before closing so they can start first thing on Friday. They did say the hab check takes 4 hours as everything is serviced and tested :) I'll need to fully clear the garage in that case. The living area is pretty much empty but you should see our guest bedroom - looks like a bomb has dropped.

The "like" is in sympathy not because I like the contents of the post.

Hope the MOTs go well.

Disaster. My Transit T350 van was due to go for mot so I gave it the check over all fine EXCEPT the exhaust tailpipe is rotten so off to the commercial supply company up the road, to get another, However it is a special and the sideways bend is bent forwards to clear the step and then out. Nothing in stock like it at all as it is probably a Chausson part. so I have ordered three 90 degree bends to go sideways forward then sideways again a bit of a faff but I do get to make it fit without the annoying rattle I used to get when the original one hit the skirt. I did have to cancel the test as the new pipes will take a day to arrive but they will cost £24 but I dread to think how much a PROPER pipe would cost and how long to get.

If that's true then the Gas Engineer has a duty to report the matter to RIDDOR!! http://www.hse.gov.uk/riddor/

We all have a duty to stop anyone testing/working on Gas appliances who are NOT competent. Please ask you new Gas Engineer to report the matter, IT's THE LAW.

Thanks Antony

My T4 went in for MOT and unfortunately failed, nothing too bad, a couple of ball joints need replacing, I seem to be haemorrhaging money at the moment though!
