Snap. My dealer gave me that tip.

Good idea, Jaytee, we'll have to start doing that, thanks! ....Dutto, we once left for Spain for six months, and as we boarded the ferry I had a sudden fear that I had left the iron on in the front bedroom! Frantic phone calls resulted in family rushing to see if they could get there before the fire brigade... but it was off anyway! Phew!

Thank you so much for your advice - Murph

A great big thank you to Murph for his wonderful advice to all us Newbys.  We have just picked up our Auto-Sleepers Winchcombe and it is total love, I know we need to make compromises, however, the only compromise so far is that there is no door fly screen, still we shall find a solution, that is half the fun. 

Murph you are a wonder and we are so grateful for your kindness and advice.

I'm sure Murph is looking down on us and looking at all the modifications we members make to our motorhomes. Met him once, such a nice man. He had made over 120 mods to his Van, some very simple some more complex. God bless you Murph.

Whilst the handbook is full of helpful instructions, it won't include the best tip which I was ever given. It's one which has saved my bacon on a few occasions: always walk around the outside of the motorhome before driving off. It takes but a few seconds, and has saved me from leaving things behind (chair under the vehicle; pads from under steadies; tools etc) as well as checking that the stays are up; no cable attached; no window or rooflight open etc.

I also try to remember to walk through from rear to cab, to check all drawers / cupboard doors / items on flat surfaces etc. You only have to suffer a flying cutlery drawer once to appreciate the need for a walk-through!

Or the unlatched fridge door which swings open and drops your lunch and a half full bottle of milk on the floor...
