Thank you it should be the sweat and tears to put it how we like it and of course the extra bits we put on. How come you can look at something and everything is spot on,
But as soon as you get it you dont like something and that leads to something else,
Are well the boss says i carn't have any more toys but my mate at his small holding has a lot empty space and i have to help him with his things but i got nothing there:mask::mask:

Well we are south of Bordeaux just and the fridge is playing silly buggers it won't work on gas so running genny to see if that works,
And it seems to be, so i clean out the burner as best as i can with my tapping stick i e hammer and suck out the debris with the Hoover, if it doesn't work could be getting a lot more with my bigger knocking stick,
But i have have had a nice gammon with pineapple and mushrooms and of course with a packet of peas, and if the fridge doesn't want to play ball they could be a load of stuff thrown into the bin, so that our day ,
See what tomorrow brings,.

Tony, daft suggestion I know, but is your gas turned on? :giggle:

On ours there's a small burner viewing hole (behind a slidey flap), we had a bit of rusty debris fall from the inside of the flue once and it lodged itself between the burner and the spark ignitor causing it to short out, might be similar?

Have a safe trip

When we were away at Christmas, the first night, wild camping & the water heater wouldn't play ball, freezing cold outside & raining tried all the usual things.........nothing, gave up and went to the pub. Next morning I thought "I'll just see if it lights" it did & has been perfect since.
So Tony, have you tried going to the pub?
Safe travels.

Haha Tony, I had a similar thing happen to me a while back. We were munching on doughnuts, the type dusted in icing sugar, while we drove up the Autovia. My upper lip and t-shirt were covered in the white dust as we exited and rounded the island only to be face to face with the Guardia Civil!! For all the world it looked like I'd been sniffing something but luckily they didn't stop us.....phew!
