Emptied mine today - first time since easter.

Bad news Im afraid the matress in the overcab was soaking there seems to be a leak where the aluminium roof meets the fibreglass body.

So its cutains for the matress (well the bin actually as it was black with mould and falling into holes) and off to the menders for a reseal as soon as possible

Well, "a man" came out yesterday and had a look at it and is to ring me soon to tell men when he can do it.

Things look good so far as he arrived the day after I first contacted him and at the time he said he would call - which is always a good start!

I will report on how the work goes!

Lol...talk about driving along and seeing a MH coming towards you....I've started now to watch for yellow circles on their windscreens....haven't noticed any yet...and no one has flashed lights at me...so I guess I haven't met any of you on the road yet lol....I also have my avatar on my windscreen mid point behind the mirror which is unique as I designed it loosely based on the UNDERWORLD film.

Washed it. Good way to keep warm on a cold day. Went for a drive and filled it with diesel.

Mark good work on the Valet, I thought ur MH was spick and span at Ballymena :-)


LOL. It can look clean but not be quite right.

I usually spend a whole weekend cleaning it properly but will need to do the exterior properly next Sunday. It will have a good base for the summer.

Auto Glym lifeshine is a good job. Make sure you get it done by someone who knows what they are doing.

My kids are two old to do it now, in fact, I am the one who cleans their cars.

Interesting tip about the Y10.
Thanks for that.

I assume it is for fibreglass hulls. Do you use it on anything other than fibreglass?

I only have one fibreglass section on the van which is the nose area above the cab which has a slight yellowing compared with the white trim below it.
