    Water Pump spluttering

    My water pump is spluttering when a tap is turned on, either hot or cold. It seems to have a lot of air in the line as well and when I turn the tap off it takes a while before the pump stops running. I cannot see any leak in the system and have tried a new pump and still got the same symptoms...

    Gone with the Wind

    Just looked up at the fan in the kitchen area and could see through to the sky! Part of the fan cowling has broken off and disappeared, I thought I saw a crack in it the other day and obviously the wind has got under it and ripped part of it off. It was the type that allowed for the lid of the...

    Second Attwood water heater has holes

    For the second time I have got a water heater that has developed pinholes in the seam of the water tank. I have been told that it is the soft water in the area that causes the problem. Before I spend out on a tank has anyone got any ideas how to prevent this in the future.

    Flait-It or Push Fit water conectors

    I am fed up with the mess and leaks I have in my locker where the boiler and water pump is so having to repair it several times now is the time to start from scratch. The boiler is a pain as to get to the back of it is a tight squeeze and in theory then blocked in with a wooden panel. On the...

    Looking for some advice. At the moment I do not have any solar but want to have the facility for the future. Plus I also want to reduce our monthly electricity bill for the future. Although I always have EHU is there a way I could also run solar alongside at the same time?

    Rear Hitch Storage

    I do not want to put a trailer on the rv as we have to get out of a very tight entrance. However has anyone used their rear hitch to put a storage box onto? I am thinking it would help clear up locker space for other items and could then take BBQ, chairs, etc. Any ideas? Michael

    Fresh Water Pumps

    We are using our fresh water pump a lot more and it is noisy and seems to be "gasping" when pumping. I have seen on RV Medics that there are two pumps. One at £95 and the other at £230. I know the more expensive is a higher GPM rate but I am wondering what others here use. Or does everyone go...

    Off grid power

    I have a 2000w inverter coming off the leisure batteries. I am wondering could I take a lead from that to where the normal 240v supply comes in. That way all the 240v sockets would work as normal?

    As the title says. I need to join a recovery (just in case) club/company before starting to travel again soon. After the recent threads is RAC Arrivals still the favoured choice, or are other companies available?

    Which BBQ - Times moves on

    Hi I know in the past people have suggested the Cadac. But is that still the best way to go, or is there now a better BBQ. I want something easy to use occasionally as I really miss not having a BBQ and sitting outside cooking a large steak while cooking with wine
