    Moisture meter at Aldi

    I bought one 3 years ago primarily to check the moisture content of firewood, it's still working on the original batteries. Well recommended

    Todays new safety info

    The same table was supplied with our 2011 Elddis xplore 302, I always count my fingers after putting it up . Other makes and models may also use the same type of table.

    Gas interchangeability

    I see from your profile that you are in the North East. I just remembered posting this back in May this year. (The prices might be out of date though) :- However, if you are in North Yorkshire, there is this company Power Point Northern Ltd, Thirsk Industrial Estate, York Rd, Thirsk, North Yorkshire YO7 3BX. I sent an e-mail enquiry yesterday and received a reply this morning stating that "10Kg gaslite refills are £27. 45, a 5kg gaslite is £19. 95 and yes they can be exchanged either way". Hoping this might help

    Gas interchangeability

    Mrs 'at dragged me to our local B&M the other day. I managed to escape into the garden centre for a little while and saw some of the light Flogas 10 kg cylinders but cannot remember what the price was, though I do remember thinking " thats expensive"

    Simple wiring problem

    I have a short length of plastic overflow pipe (found in a skip) to put between the brake pedal and the seat, works fine and doesn't take up much room in the door pocket.

    Changes to Highway Code

    So let me get this right, to find out how Smart Motorways work I have to commit a speeding offence, be offered a place on a course and then be given the information required? Or stop in a refuge, make an emergency phone call, ignore the SOS phone and wait for a notification letter that I owe someone some money! It sounds like someone is running a moneymaking scam here. A few of my grandchildren's friends have passed their driving tests and I am appalled at their lack of knowledge about road signs and the Highway code, one asked me what is the Highway code and said, when I showed him one, I have never seen one of those!

    Caravan gross weight, a response from Bailey!

    Sorry Andy, it's me again. My son, post 97 licence holder, drives a 3500kg Transit and tows a braked 750kg compressor. No mention of brakes here www. gov. uk/towing-with-car However he cannot tow my caravan, 1050kg, with his Transit but he can tow it with my car. Shortly before he passed his driving test in March of '97 I had found a motorhome with a plated gross weight of 5500kg, it's a good job that he brought his instructor home for a brew after the test, because that's when the instructor told us that he could not drive it. Subsequently he refused to contribute to the cost and I found myself extremely dissatisfied

    Newbie - What's a CL site ?

    It is a Caravan and Motorhome club abbreviation for a Certified Location, usually a site with up to 5 pitches with varying degrees of facilities. Have a look here https://www. caravanclub. co. uk/uk-holidays/uk-sites/certificated-locations/
