Installing gauge panel
 



In my last van the gauges were factory fitted in the footwell of the drivers door and worked very well there

Yeah....That would be an excellent location for them alright Dave. The kit I bought has the dash mounted panel so no choice really.

Where you have them, it’ll be very easy to see them, if one deflated, or if you have used them to level up, you will see at a glance what the bags have in them. Don’t drive for any distance with them fully deflated or you risk damaging them. I check my gauges regularly.

During lockdown, we got the front of van resprayed, Dave put in a swivel on the passenger seat (so that's my seat technically!), he put in a diesel heater, got a thermal screen for the outside, he put up a fiamma awning, installed a cello satellite TV, and resealed shower room.
Hmmm I'd better give it a clean now!

Really looking forward to our meet on the 10th, which is our first trip.

Not away for the weekend of the 3rd July, as we need to visit his 94 year old lovely Mam, who we haven't seen since March.

So anyone heading off the weekend of 3rd July, have a brilliant time, we've been waiting long enough.
So yep see ye all soon. 😊

Removed the shower skylight, split the two layers of Perspex, and washed 4 years of grime from them. Screwed back together and replaced. That has been annoying me for years and I thought I had the difficult to remove version. Turns out a simple job with 2 torx drivers on mine.

Hi Mark,
It is an easy job, if you have the right type of roof light. Mine is this type,

https://motorhomer.com/attachm…peg.54261/

You need 2 torx screwdrivers sizes 10 and 25 with long shafts, I have some if you need to borrow.

Depending on where your skylights are, when you have them off use a small stepladder to get your upper body up through the opening. I found this a very easy, and safe, way to clean a lot of the gunk off of the roof.
