    Hello there,

    I've just bought a Romahome from the eighties, which is currently plonked on top of a Suzuki flat bed lorry from 1985. The romahome has two side facing seats in the back (without seatbelts) and I was wondering whether I am allowed to take passengers on these seats?

    Also I was wondering how I should check if my fridge and gas hobs work without blowing the whole place up? Do I have to clean the pipes or anything like that, or do I just operate it like I would my kitchen stove?

    Thanks for your help.

    Rachel.

    hi Rachel,

    side facing seats are legal, but try not to hit anything...

    Fridge/hob, if your worried, maybe go to a motorhome repairers and they can test it all safely, then you can rest assured its all ok in the future :thumb:

    any gas engineer will be able to check the cooker etc. Its just a simple leak test they do. If you know a friendly plumber (Corgi registered) ask him/her :thumb:

    apparently, your average domestic gas-safe registered plumber isnt legally qualified to test mobile (LPG) gas systems.:Sad:

    Corgi is now called Gas-safe.:thumb:
