Fitted new gas struts to the drop down bed in the Hymer, they cost £70 for two from SGS in Derby and easy to fit, the originals were 19yrs old and we struggled to lift the bed up, I could probably lift it up with Maggy still in it now
Put all the stuff back after a total re-upholster by the lovely Sharon amd Paul from Crystal Upholstery @ Chesterfield - they came all the way down to ours (Staffs), stripped it out, did the deed then put it all back, including some very tricky craftsmanship around the cab access. Lovely, lovely job and a very reasonable cost!
Changed gas jet and burner on the fridge.
It first started smelling last summer, I thought it was just the wind causing the problem. It started again very strong down here in Portugal.
Managed to locate new parts at Camperserv at Loulé off the N125.
Straightforward job and managed to scrape some soot out at the same time.
Job’s a good ‘un no smells and the fridge working really well.
Ditto to most of your post except the last bit... I'll be heading north towards Scotland tomorrow morning!
In truth I've still got a teensy bit more cleaning to do but nearly done... then comes the loading.
