Alde wet heating on gas 5 Caravan mover See text From the table you can see that modern flat panel TV’s are quite economical and that tthe newer LED backlit ones are even more efficient. Do make sure that the one you buy can be run directly off 12 volts. The table also shows that fluorescent lights use less power than halogen lights and that LED lights are more efficient again. Some are even available as direct replacements for the spotlights found in more recent caravans.

Clearly, swapping to this type of lighting is going to make a significant impact on battery life, especially during long dark evenings. We often get asked about the power consumption of caravan movers with people frightened that using a mover would quickly flatten their battery. Whilst it is true that movers do use a lot of power they are normally used for no more than a minute or two on each outing.

The effect of this on a good battery is negligible and nothing to worry about. Using power efficiently is the first step to managing without a mains hook up.

Austen Club Member stayed Nov This review is for Chichester We received a warm welcome from the 2 Assistant Wardens, who we found to be very cheerful and informative. The site is very well situated for visiting Portsmouth, Chichester, Bognor Regis, Hayling Island etc as well as some lovely towns and villages roundabout. There is a nice pub virtually next to the site and a well stocked farm shop almost opposite.

A dog walk is accessed from the opposite side of the road from the site, but it gets very muddy after rain. Wellies are a necessity. Facilities on site are always clean but the push button in the showers is a pain! Now for the negatives: The road outside the site is extremely busy and noisy. The pitches on site are so small. The hard standing pitches need to be more defined and better kept. The building site right next door means noise and bad language at times from early morning and a complete lack of privacy from the builders working on site.

And finally it was far from satisfactory for the Wardens to be painting in the toilets and showers while the site was still open.

Farewell to Microsoft Autoroute – Discontinued in If you are familiar with our blog, you’ll know Microsoft Autoroute features heavily in our route planning and navigation. Last year I spent the best part of a day compiling and formatting a data set in Microsoft Excel for use with Autoroute. Over , lines of information were formatted as hyperlinks to take you direct to where the information was displayed online from several sources.

It has been downloaded more than 10, times – so at least I know I’m not alone. If you were one of them – please complete the poll at the bottom of this blog post and let me know if you’d download a version. However on the 31st December you will no longer be able to buy Microsoft Autoroute via the online Microsoft Store. It also seems that all of the CD copies have dried up too and so if you want it you need to act fast, buy online and once downloaded ensure you backup the installation files as I’m not sure you’ll be able to access them again.

The feedback and enthusiasm from our users have helped make Microsoft travel planning software a leading solution for nearly twenty years. The retirement of these products will not affect software already installed. If it was purely navigation you are after then I concede that there are better devices or software available to perform that task.

The Motorhome Blog. Introduction. Back in December last year we collected our caravan from the dealer after a minor repair. When we got home we had some difficulty with the motor mover which in turn made it difficult to get back in the garden.

Our Hymer B First off, a bit of background. A year later we came back to the UK, got an MOT, said hello to friends and family, and drove to Dover again, this time turning left at Calais. Another year later our funds finally ran out and we headed back, our heads packed full of memories and our hearts still on the road. Dave, our previous Hymer B Dave, our previous Hymer B Dave, our previous Hymer B Fast forward to now July and Dave has parted company with us, taken on by a wonderful family who continue to get joy and fun from the awesome vehicle he is.

We on the other hand are the proud owners of a new luxury adventure wagon: Although Dave was still going strong and we did attempt to buy him back , we have a hope to get some more significant travels under our belts so we may well have eventually managed to break him probably not. So last week after two months of searching through autotrader. We also wanted a full service history FSH and less than 70, miles on the clock.

Our free-camping habit also pushes us towards having a Solar PV set-up, and gas bottles we can refill ourselves with LPG Dave had both of these.


This year, we decided on the opposite and headed South for the Winter. Not wanting to follow the Pacific Highway the whole way, we decided on the less travelled inland route, via the New England Highway for the most part. We spread the trip out over two weeks and discovered some great new places that are really worth checking out, so we thought we would share them with you here.

Sunny Coast to Toogoolawah We left Eumundi due south to Beerwah before we headed up the range to Peachester, a beautiful little village on top of the range and a great place to stop for lunch. From there, we headed via Kilcoy and pushed onto one of our favourite little towns at Toogoolawah.

History[ edit ] Caravan Club logo used until Its aim was to ” The club’s current name, the Caravan and Motorhome Club was adopted in February The council in turn is supported by the 10 Regional Councils. Their aim of the Regional Councils is to coordinate communications throughout The Club membership. Regional Councils provide a forum to discuss Club issues and to solve local and regional problems. Club members may also vote at the Annual Members Meeting. Sites[ edit ] The Club operates around main Caravan Club sites and 2, smaller certificated “five-van” sites, known as CLs Certificated Locations.

Visitors with caravans pay a small fee to the CL owner in order to pitch overnight. This is usually cheaper than larger commercial caravan sites. Each year the Caravan Club issues a Certificate to those sites that continue to meet their standards, hence ‘Certificated Locations’. CLs need no site licence or formal planning permission, but are covered by two Acts of Parliament:
