    Noticed that the temperature is meant to drop down to 14C today do thought I better check my luxury Hymer heating system (with blown air option).

    Not used it for eight months.

    Popped a charged up AA battery into the igniter thingy. Swept up a fair amount of dust. Held down the manual gas control for a few seconds to draw some gas through... twisted the knob and...

    Tunga!

    Fired up straight away.

    Classic (1987) Hymer 660's ROOL.

    Modern Hymer ..... ours was 1983. And it appears to still be on the road.

    But I bet you still have the two calibrated sticks Hymer provided for rubbing together should the new fangled electricity fail.
