Took the camper to ATS today for the new tyre but was told afterwards that I need another two, bit of a shock but getting them a bit cheaper at £60 each just got to wait until they come in next Monday.
I am still getting prices for a new battery but ATS gave me a great price, higher cca and ah and they fitted it for me today so that was £114 well spent. The battery is twice the size of the one that was in there so I should have no problems with that.
It is good to know it’s all done and I am safe as there is nothing worse than breaking down on your own somewhere. I am still looking for someone to fit my reversing camera but think I am going to have to go to a camper van dealer or somewhere like that as a normal garage do not really want to touch it.
Myself, Jodie and Alfie are going to camp out in a park and clean all the tanks before filling them and try to clean the awning with a broom. We will hook up to electric and charge everything, get the fridge nice and cold and make sure the TV works as I have never tried that yet.  I wonder how much power it would take from the leisure battery if you watch the tv for a bit when camping off-road?
Once the camper is all sorted then I can take the cat away for couple days and see what she thinks about it all.
How is your week going?

    Wow, you are busy…..and determined! Hope it all works out for you. I am writing this on my last afternoon in San Francisco after a month in the area. i return on Wednesday to get stuck into my walking tours programme for the summer. I am planning to launch my new website by the middle of next week, when I will be frantically promoting the tours which begin on 8th May.

      I will do a post about your tours in a couple of weeks and link your new website. 🙂
