    Hello to everyone again.

    Just to say we have now got our 2007 Hymer B514 SL GOLD EDITION. Its fantastic, we love it.
    Purchased from Brownhills and i must say, credit where its due, the staff and the experience have so far been great ...... Thankyou !!

    On another matter, we shall be away over xmas and wondered if we could use a small slow cooker off the e/ hook up ? Any ideas ?

    Also we are looking for an internal OR external thermal screen , there only seems to be 1 or 2 people supplying them but they are a small fortune, does anybody have any ideas where we could locate .:winky:

    Thank you !!

    Shreky !

    C A K Tanks (0844 414 2324 for a Catalogue) have all you need to make you own at half the price, (page 41) and it can be done on a Domestic Sewing Machine. Bit of a fiddle with cutting the templates , but well worth it in the end,

    Best of luck either way:thumb:

    Hi Shreky,

    We use a slow cooker with EHU sometimes without issue.

    As for blinds have you tried Silver Products? I found them to be best priced when I was looking. :thumb:

    Slow cooker + generator. Now there's a combination to get you killed.

    We had a Nova external screen-it fell apart after 1 yr-then we bought a Taylormade :thumb:
    Fits much better,only had it 6 mths,but so far it was worth paying the extra.

    silver screens

    If you ring and talk to the bloke that makes them, he some times has GOOD quality second hand ones for less than a ton.. They are worth every penny..

    We have a Lloytron 1.5 litre Slow Cooker which we use when on hook up. 240 volts, 120 watts, great for just the two of us, cost us £13 at the Newark Show.

    Simples. Slow cooker = generator running for hours and hours and hours. I'll be in the long queue with an axe.

    Pretty expensive mean I would guess.

    I was thinking you could use it while travelling so 10A would be no prob with the engine running, mind you it would need a secure spot as boiling stew in the back of the neck if you brake hard would be no joke.

    Yes, 10A no problem. But I didn't get where I am today by driving in the middle of a hot stew.

    That is not to say that I haven't been in a bit of a pickle whilst driving.

    Hi, we had a slow cooker and it worked fine on electric hook up, but we now have one of these: http://www.cookequip.co.uk/shop-dream-pot.html :Smile: we have the small size, and do it in the pan on gas for 15 / 20 minutes and put it in the pot and then back in the cupboard where we store it if travelling get it out 4 hours later and serve. :ROFLMAO:

    For electric hook up we now have a Remoska if fact we have two, :Doh: but don't ask.:RollEyes: :ROFLMAO:

    And yes Silver Screens are a must have, and they have to be External to do any good. :thumb: Bob.

    You're right. We have an internal silver screen and it's not very impressive. ::bigsmile:

    We often use our Crockpot ( Slow cooker) on hook up - never had a problem.

    Bought it in Morrison's in Gibraltar last winter for £20 - brilliant piece of kit :thumb::thumb:
