OoooooooOOOoOoooooooooo ... that's a big one! :oops: Are you going to audition for the role of Zebedee if they make another 'Magic Roundabout' film? 😄
They are absolute monsters. Will be interesting to see what rise in the ride height they produce. Hopefully not making the ride too harsh.

Did you also buy yourself some tall steps so you can still get in the MH? :LOL:

MH newbie but we owned a caravan previously.
Was that on a Ducato?
if so what did it go like? I’ve just bought front springs for mine, and want to swap them next weekend.
Peugeot Boxer (the "Maxi" Version). Bought Koni Active strut inserts and Koni +50mm springs. The springs are made by Lesjofors but seems they are only available via Koni. I'm on 225/75R16 tyres. Before I could just about get my flat hand between the tyre and wheel arch now I can easily get my first in there. We used to look for potholes, even small ones, so we could avoid them but now barely notice them.

The originals were totally shot so the improvement may have been magnified but the nose down effect has gone completely and the Moho sits level. Unfortunately I had to pay a garage to do it but still worth it.

Not strut inserts. Struts.

Bought some fuses for the mh. I managed to blow one while fiddling around (number plate and side markers)

Found I only had standard size blade fuses which are OK for the hab electrics. The vehicle ones are Mini2 , Mini3 and J case so Ive bought some of each plus micro in case I find any of them.
I wouldnt be happy to blow one in foreign parts and have problems getting one.

Expensive I know but I'm slowly changing any fuse that blows (not any lately) with the kind that illuminates when blown, saves an awful lot of looking and checking!

Amazon prime has some very good whisky n bourbon prices ATM
Bulleit £22 Woodford reserve £25 Gentleman Jack £20 AnCnoc £30.09 etc etc
Anyone new to Bourbon I guarantee you will like Bulleit! it was my first introduction that I found to my taste and Woodford is a great follow up once you're sold on Bulleit. Makes a nice change from single malts

2 tins of Smooth Red Hammerite garage door paint. 4 coats to go from Stone to Red.
Insects of all descriptions appear to love wet red Garage Door paint. Next trip I might put an open tin near to the van to distract midges and mozzies.
Life's too short for this. Next time it'll be a new door.
Don't you like a textured finish? 😄

I was once so careless as to paint my garage door yellow. It wasnt supposed to be a textured finish but ended up as one because of all the little flies. They love yellow.
