    Fridge & Water Heater. Cheaper on Gas or Electric?

    Well 16p/Kwh for electric isn't bad considering it's costing them approx 15p. I use electric for Fridge and water heating as well. Our water heater takes about a hour to heat. Tend to turn off overnight and put it on with the first cup of tea in bed, by the time we're up it's hot enough for a...

    Touch up paint

    We had the same issue, showed them the US paint "colors" didn't recognise them, they even called the manufacturers of the mixing machine for equivalents. So took RV to them on a Saturday as it was quieter on the industrial estate. They scanned several areas and got an average. The paint was a...

    Blown Air Heating is Rubbish

    Our previous MH used a Primus wet system, Bought out by Alde. We had many problems, partly due to a crap installation, but always had leaks creeping back. if the system got air into it, the air would expand and the header tank would overflow, allowing more air in when it cooled. Gentle...

    Wiring american wire into 240v weather proof socket

    The cable will well exceed the insulation requirements for 240v, as the voltage is doubled, the current is halved so current will not be an issue. When our MH was wired for 240, the old cable was used. I assume the existing waterproof outlet is still on 120v, so that will need to be connected...

    Self seeking satalite reciever opinions.

    Winegard Sensar Help

    The antenna should be the same as local tv antennas ie at 90 degrees to the transmitter. The little bars of the std tv fishbone antenna is the critical item, not the pole that holds them. Hope this helps?

    What vacuum cleaner?

    Our older Dyson cordless with the Animal head coped very well with Retriever hair in the house and Motorhome. That includes carpet and the tumble weed that floats across the laminate!! Still working well after three years. Great in the car as well.
