Very excired, just placed an order for a new Worcester, went to Marquis to have a look at the open weekend and somehow came away having fallen in love and the drive was so much better than our current Peugeot based Autocruise! Not coming until next year but can't wait to get it. A few questions to those that might know in the meantime.

Living in Cornwall we use our current van a lot for just days out especially in Winter, how long should the blown air heating run without flattening the leisure battery, is it worth fitting a second battery? How effective is it, we like the van toasty.

Does the microwave run off the battery or only when on EHU?

Any other tips or advice appreciated please.

Thanks

Think I would be inclined to have a second battery fitted from new say a couple of 110ah units not the small 85ah units found on many models.

Cant help over the microwave but there are members on here who will be able to give you the info

Is it an automatic with the 7 speed box ? one of the ASOC members was singing the praises of the power unit and gearbox if it is on his newley purchased Merc

The microwave in our Hampshire is 240v so on hook up only I'm afraid.
The blown air when using the heater on gas will run for a considerable amount of time on battery, however we do have an 85 watt solar panel fitted.

Roli - Thanks yes it is the 7 speed auto, if it is anything like the auto in our Mercedes car it will be great.

DeeGee7 Thankyou for that do you find the heating system efficient, I think I will go for the twin battery plus solar panel option since we do like to wild camp but will use the van mostly for days by the beach which in the midst of winter can be chilly - hence the question whether the batteries will flatten after running the fan for two or three hours?i

Groundhog - You'll find that you won't need the heating on for very long if your motorhome is like ours.
Within an hour or so even when the temperature outside is low (on one occasion +1 C) we have had to turn off the heating for a good while.
We don't leave our heating on over night as we both prefer it colder for sleeping.

We are thinking of purchasing an auto sleeper - Worcester. Have you had any problems getting in and out of off road parks/camp sites etc.? There does not seem to be enough clearance underneath.
