Hi there,

Now Boaby has admitted to owning one as well this is an easy one! allthumbz

It's a "Mk1 Damdifino". It is a specially designed bit of kit whose use can only be discovered:

1) If it is left at home and the Owner drives a minimum of one hundred miles away. At this stage it will be discovered that the Damdifino is essential for any planned return journey.

2) If it is sold or thrown away. At this stage it will be discovered that not only is the Damdifino essential to actually running the vehicle a replacement Damdifino will cost just slightly less than a new van!

This is why all MH Owners are advised to keep their Damdifinos warm, snug, dry and in good condition for when they are needed. allthumbz allthumbz

Hope this helps. Whistle1

Best regards,

Ian

Its a movable step, so that your wife can reach the top of the cupboard. You're luck - we had to make our own.

I used to have something I didn't know what it was.
A friend told me that it was a 'hamerfor'.

I said, "whats that used for then?"

He said, "knocking nails in!"

A bus broke down in Birmingham. Driver opens the bonnet and looks inside. A window opens in the house opposite and a woman shouts out ''do you want a screwdriver'' to which the driver replied ''no thanks, I'm mending my bus'' lol4

i could hazard a guess that its to maybe cover the arm rests or seatbelt buckle bits with if using them for the double bed or something similar, not being au fait with the nuevo i can only assume that part of the double bed is a bit of metal that needs covering when converted from seats? i believe my harmony should have at least one of these "damdifino's" 2 would be lovely lol

Why doesnt one of you with the 6" square or thereabouts (it might be metric!! ) phone AS and ask em what it is ?

Now if you have a square 9 or 10" square pad and you have an Executive, Talisman, Excelsior or Amethyst I know whats thats for (unsure about the Legend & Clubman but a possibility)

Hi there,

Genuine tale about a "Super Damdifino"; I think.

A mate of mine was Head Guide of a Joint Services Group Expedition taking some archaeologists and students to study mysterious groups of stones that had been found on the Patagonian Desert Plains in South America. Apparently the stones are up to half a metre across and can be found at random locations in the desert where they are arranged in circular or rectangular groups.

There was massive speculation as to what the stones were meant to represent. Religious rites? Solar clocks? (Most of the rectangular groups seemed to be aligned to the mid-day sun.) The whole purpose of the expedition was to find out exactly why they were there.

On their first night in the desert the wind was blowing a hooley and my mate had to make arrangements to make sure that the tents weren't blown away. The next morning the archaeologists set off before the camp was struck and Alan and two of his helpers were left behind to de-camp.

As Alan drove away from the camp he looked back to make sure that he hadn't left anything behind and saw that the site was completely empty; except for the neatly arranges stones that he had used to weigh down the edges of the tents! These were now one foot back from where the tent's skirts had been and formed a series of perfect rectangles and circles! The rectangles were arranged with what had been the back of the tent facing the prevailing wind; which was south.

"What did you do?" I asked "Kept my mouth shut!" said this "25 years in the navy ex-CPO"! hugegrins hugegrins

I plucked up the courage to ask autosleepers about the square pad. They don't know what it's for!
