    I want to come to England from France in my motorhome, I will have to self isolate for 14 days due to the restrictions but what address will I use? Surely I will be self isolated where ever I go as it’s just me and the dogs?

    Why pink and blue … why not green ?

    I’ve got two points, one if your Motorhome is over 3500kg like mine is and you’ve turned 70 and so needed to renew your driving license remember you should have applied to retain your C1 on your driving license and have passed the HGV drivers medical, I have for the second time now but I wonder how many have skipped it in which case their insurance will be null and void just a point. Second if your Motorhome home has been stood for some time and is of the newer types with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPC) fitted you may find an engine warning light appearing but if you don’t know what it’s telling you it could be worrisome till you get it checked and resolved, mine came on at beginning of last year and it cost me £79 that was for the diagnostic, fuel additive and a rest, I’ve learnt my lesson and now carry an OBDII Diagnostic Scan Tool to read the engine codes from the diagnostic socket and if for nothing else but peace of mind because it’s happened again on a recent run out after lockdown but now I know what the cause is. Happy Motorhoming.

    This reminded me to tax the thing. I used a SORN from the end of January and I am taking the motorhome back on the road on the 6th.

    It’s all just common sense. Most items covered during the annual service.

    I like most of the bits and pieces you publish.
    We have had both motorhome / caravan for years. I just watched you video “cleaning your motorhome” and learned something. We have always been careful cleaning the acrylic windows but never in a million years thought of cleaning the acrylic windows with the palm of you hand, brilliant, thanks for a brilliant simple tip.
