Liesure batteries by Peter & Andrea
Hi, My motorhome has 2 85 Ah lead/acid batteries that don't seem to hold much of a charge. They are only 18 months old. I've read recently that if the voltage is allowed to drop below 10.5 volts the cells can be damaged, I suspect the voltage has been low on several occassions.. Have I damaged the cells???? I am considering putting in 2 110 Ah batteries.

Fit or Purpose? by hugh
I have a 2008 Compass Avant-garde fitted with the Thetford C402 bench type toilet. Having got round to reading the instruction manual in detail it states "Important Warning Notice! Please do not travel with water in the flush tank of your toilet. Failure to adhere to this notice may result in damage to your caravan or motorhome." Not a major problem with a caravan, but in a motorhome?

Satellite by Dystopia[_2_]
There will not be any analogue TV signal anywhere soon, I understand it has already been switched off in the West Country. I wanted to fit a satellite dish to my medium sized motrohome but there was not a free area on the roof to mount the metre square base plate so I have fitted one to the cycle rack and thought that someone else might be interested. See http://satellite.webhop.org/ --

Caravan Club Availability Easter Weekend by Gunslinger[_3_]
I note that the CC are not running the 'late availability' search on their website this year, and in fact looking on the website there seems to be plenty of availability over the Easter weekend this year - unlike 2007, the last time Easter fell in April. Of course they have not done themselves any favours in terms of late Easter bookings, by having their site reservation system down last...

C&CC Clubcare Motor Insurance by Gunslinger[_3_]
Does anyone else have experience of using C&CC Clubcare to insure their car (not motorhome, where they apparently still use the dreaded Equity Red Star)? They use different brokers now - MCE, based in Northamptonshire who I believe mainly specialise in motorbike insurance. However the standard of administration remains particularly poor, even by C&CC standards: 1. Over a month to send out...

Experience of renting out your motorhome by WolfWilf
As it's quiet, I'll emerge from my lurking corner and ask the group's opinion; Has anyone had experience, good or ill, of renting out their vehicle through Motorholmes (or similar)? The information they send me is very friendly and positive so I'm tempted but I would like to hear any views. Is it really possible to own a new motorhome at nil cost? Regards
