    When deciding to plug into one of those fancy foreign electric hook up thingies where you have to pay by the kwh check out each socket. Very often people leave a Kwh or so when they depart and if so you might as well do your bit for the economy and use it up before you put any of your own coins in. We lasted nearly two days at Fussen before we had to use our own money!

    And another top tip is, always put the dial on your number on those hook up post.::bigsmile:

    We had someone put €3 in ours before asking if our electric was working, went to have a look and said Oh !!!!!! I see what you have done, :winky: you haven't put the dial on your number. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Bob.

    On some of the electric hook up posts on stellplatz in Germany, you pay for the electric so much per kWh, and you plug in say socket number 1, and before you put any money in you select number 1. ::bigsmile:

    Some don't they plug in and the dial is on say number 6, and they have loaded some one else's electric up.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: And with any luck its yours. :roflmto:

    As Mike says check them all, before paying some times you find someone has left a fair bit on them. :thumb: Bob.
