    They used to(and poss still do) have a phone number on the carton inviting you to chat, ‘the banana phone’. We were deep in the session back at uni when my mate who was sailing on acid decided to give them a call to show appreciation. Ended up on speakerphone with the whole office waxing lyrical and discussing the universe for well over an hour.
    I like to think he made their day.

    Having just bought a factory built t4 for just over £6k it’s safe to say your budget should do you fine! That said it wouldn’t be my first choice for an extended trip or longer term living.
    Van dealer near my work always has fuck off big vw crafters etc for like £3-5k. If you and your partner are a bit handy and have the time then building your own is certainly worth considering. Your budget could easily build an absolute beauty.

    Now I don’t know if trump is into 40k but this was posted, completely without irony by a trumper on a twitter thread today.....

    Cheers, thanks for that, so basically could be anything and everything! Can check with the voltmeter at least and go from there.

    Leisure battery doesn’t appear to be recharging properly while I’m driving. Any good pointers for trouble shooting? Only got about half an hour of one small light being on before the low battery warning light clicked on.

    The power supply is all factory from the motor home fitters that originally built the van so would hope it’s all relatively straightforward and not some crazy diy affair.

    All about the sub-24hr adventures at the moment. Chips in Whitstable and a bracing walk along the coast. Kipped by the sea on Sheppy and back home in time to feed the cat.

    Finally installed that ball I made for my mate.
    Came out nice. Wire core, hand laid rope courtesy from my workshop neighbour.
    The black glass barely shows up as anything on my crappy camera but looks pretty nifty when lit.

    Absolute bargain. Don’t need as I’ve got a similar affair by karrimor from back in the day which works ace but nowhere near as waterproof as your one.

    The sheds on our site apparently get broken into often but only ever for power tools so everyone just leaves those in the big communal building lockers which are relatively secure.
    We want a shed but mostly just for somewhere to hang out and have a coffee.
    The open sided ‘bus shelter’ shedlet seems pretty popular on our site: roof for collecting rainwater/keep dry, somewhere to sit and keep low value tools. It also supposedly gets you round the single structure rule on our site as means you can have a greenhouse as well(it’s supposedly one or the other but the bus shelters are tolerated).
