Don't know of any sites in Amsterdam but there are plenty on the coast which is approx. 10 miles west of the city. We have stayed at Bloemendaal, near Zandvoort which has plenty of room for large outfits, the site being on the coast amongst the sand dunes.
We have been to the Netherlands for...
Just changed our starter batteries last week without affecting the PCM (power train control module) or the TCM (transmission control module).
Take one off and replace with new - take 2nd off and replace with new. They are connected in parallel so there is no interruption in current...
Hi dommanuman and welcome to the forum.
We are fulltimers and regularly return to the Fylde area of Lancashire to visit relatives. There is no shortage of commercial sites in the South Lakes/Lancaster/Garstang/Fylde area that will accommodate RV's year round.
We use the Caravan Club and...

There are a bunch of remedies out there to control rust. I've found the most effective to be an application of spray grease every 2-3 years. It comes in handy spray cans.

As far as we know the term "fulltiming" derives from America and their definition of the word is :
A person living full-time in an RV, having no other home.
We call ourselves fulltimers believing a person who parks an RV on a site...
Hi Mike & Issy,
Have a great trip. We did it for the first time in 2011 and now wish we'd done it sooner.
Off to Holland in March - touring around for a few months and also attending an Airstream Euro Gathering in Germany in June (with the Dutch you met last August).
All the best, John &...
Here's ours from some years ago on a 1994 Fleetwood Flair pusher. Bike not as heavy as a big twin but still weighed a bit.
Made the rack myself with 4x2 channel section chassis extensions and 2 off 9"x4" alloy channels, one of which we used as a ramp. Added rear air bags to RV at 80 psi...
pappajohn - many thanks for RCD explanation. Yes, it is strange that an external fault tripped the RV RCD.
We trip the post quite regularly when hooking up but, as you point out, that is an overload. We don't have a soft start transformer.
All is well at the moment but I will keep an eye on...
