    tv fitting

    i will b removing for travel but looking at mounting options as checked today and the cupboard wall is no more than 2mm thick so definately needs reinforcing but i also got small sock type side shelfs on the side of mine so im guessing reinforce all areas in-between these we have 2 a rulers hight apart top to bottom, also our main power board [battery lights etc] and carver switch are on this wall

    tv fitting

    hi all unsire if im putting this in the right area but here goes,, we have the 92 Elddis pamperos and im debating putting mums 22 inch lcd tv on the wall that backs onto the wardrobe and a shelf for the sky box simply as it would b easier while we are away,, at this point im looking at types and suggestions, the one pictured is not mine but an idea of what im aiming at and the small tray like shelf end of the sink is what we use at the min and its akward to say the least hence this,,, what do you all thing or have you done different or better tv and sky box are light too, thanks all ps old pic of inside the vam,, it much tidier and better lol

    Twin lnb for sky+hd

    if both feeds go to the same location, change the ends to fit a satellite cable and then use a sat feed outside- dish to caravan feed point then another feed tv point to box,, provided all feeds match it should b ok but dont use any splitters etc

    New Swift Alpine 4 broke away from Towcar.

    ive been doing caravaning for the last 3 yrs and i do the lift test and put my fingers under the hitch to feel the ball and i get down and check last when all is wired up as i dont want to embarrass myself plus safety also i have a daxara trailer and when i unhitch i can put my hand under and release the handle for storage done by pulling back of the tongue
