Charlie’s had a weekend out of his lock-up site & the fridge has suddenly decided to stop working on gas. I had a bit of a poke at it, but decided to let the experts fix it properly, as the freezer section will prove to be vital to us ‘on tour’. So Russell of Broadland Caravan services took a look at it for us & promptly pronounced the ‘Main PCB & igniter/thermocouple…deceased. Parts on order, should be good as new by next week end.
So on with the next project…
I have never been 100% happy with only having 1 garage door, OK, it’s a big door & it’s on the same side as the Hab door, which is on the near-side on ‘The Continent’, but it’s still a pain in the rear crawling over the garage floor on your knees to retrieve stuff from the opposite side. So after hassling several Burstner agents, most of which didn’t want to know, others simply ignored emails & never responded to messages because they don’t even answer the phone for less than £10K, a door was found, thanks to Colin at southdownsmotorcaravans .It wasn’t from the Burstner Nexxo range, but the newer range, we guessed the colours would be the same. After 3 weeks of waiting for delivery a 800 x 855 door ‘kit’ arrived & it looked perfect, thanks to Colin, so all I,ve got to do is fit it…..Mmmm!.. who’s idea was it to go drilling huge holes in a very expensive Motorhome?
Sounds easy, but I must have measured the door aperture 5 times, better safe than sorry.
Mark it out ‘Just where I want it….’
Who needs a lectric Jigsaw?… it’s only 35mm of aluminum polystyrene & hardboard….
The moment of truth….
So once it’s all glued in, insert the ‘code matched’ lock barrels, inner trim finished off, open retainer fitted, I’m very happy with it.
I can finally get into both sides of the garage.
Project cost £800 + 5 hours.
