From: Andy Jackson
Date: 27 Nov 06 - 06:45 PM

Right then here we go....
April   6th- 9th
New bigger, flatter, even closer, campsite and a promise for the future.

Guests so far: most of the usual PLUS George Papavgeris, Sally and the Shot Dogs, Crispen Bartlett, Dave and Brenda, Rock Berntsen, Lucy Burrows.
This is just to wet your whistle and because the website is still at the fine tweakers (Toby = Web guru extraordinaire)

Hi Lynne! Wimps????? You haven't met my youngest daughter have you? Besides, I've done my share of winter camping; try a snow hole on Ben Nevis for a couple of days in February, waiting for the storm to blow out! No, these days it's sybaritic luxury all the way for me; hot showers, central heating and a well stocked built-in bar. Lovely!
See you there I hope.

Although as Breton Cap says, old bones require a decent bed, so reserve a bunk place for me please. My mates Roger and Eileen are off to their house in France for Easter so I'll be on my own.

Before we all get squashed in the rush let me clarify Bunkhouse arrangements.
Basically if you had a booked bunk last year you will be given first refusal. At the moment all bunks are allocated. There is a short list of hopefuls, some more needy than others, but it relies on cancellations. Please let me know if you had a bunk last year and don't need it this year (or perhaps are happy to share with your partner - no giggling).
The new caravan site is nearer, larger and with easier access so I hope this will encourage more "Tin Tents".

Talking of near.... the new caravan and carpark is actually the field right next to the main Miskin Mill field in the direction of the old camp site. I haven't measured it yet but the old field was 400 yards so this can't be more than a hundred. I am hoping there might even be a way through the woods and across the little foot bridge. Have a look on Google maps. When the website is up and running next week I will put a map there.

Ah, Vanwatch!

So far all I need to plan is ripping out the fridge and taking it over to the Dometic agent in Southend to find out why it doesn't go cold in hot weather (I expect the answer is expensive) and get the remarkable Mr Shea to investigate the grabbing brakes. Still the Volvo that replaced the Skoda is heavy enough that a wagging van usually doesn't bother it. Oh yes, and the fans on the fridge air vents to aid hot air extraction....

I've already done the new high-power water pump.

It'd be nice to get the radio-cassette that I took out of the Volvo in, too, and that will mean properly fitting four speakers in place of the currently rather un-located two speakers. Indeed I have half a plan to fit a big sub to go thud, and to re-fit the little telly to the front of the sub so it doesn't bang people on the head

I also want to re-fit the front interior light, and to re-tension the roller blind on the top window so it works, and that will mean taking out and replacing the guitar shelves, but they want re-fitting more securely anyway.

I'm hoping the gas fire will behave itself after all the grief last year, but maybe some larger gas-bottles (which means new gas-bottle fittings) would help it.

Oh, and rigging up a spare-wheel rack so that I can take a spare wheel just in case

And re-stapling the bit of undertrim that gets the wind inside it and pulls down if I drive too fast.

And blanking off the draught-space under the fridge to keep the wind out...

Nothing as potentially disastrous as last year, though.

I don't know if Jeff will come this year. Miskin and the Pigs' Ear Folk Ale were the only fests last year he could psych himself up enough to come to, and as some of you may remember he was a bit odd at both. However his court case turned out better than expected so maybe he will be feeling more at ease with himself. We wait to see.

So that makes it part vanwatch and part nutwatch.......

And if Jeff does not come then I get to try out the new field, and bring thigh waders to get across the stream...

Rightyho Richard. First things first, take out the fridge and stand it upside down for at least an overnight, longer if you have the patience. Honest.... this lets the coolant stuff sort itself out and get back in the right place. This may be all it needs, especially if it sort of works now. If it still doesn't want to play, check it on lectricity, mains or 12volt (remember it takes loads of current on 12volt and is not very efficient so you can only realistically do this on a long run) Hopefully it also runs on mains, and if it now works you need to either carefully clean or replace the gas jet. Always worth a try at cleaning but new jets are better.
The heat enxchanging thingy which is the heart of the system is seperate on mains and gas, hence the check.

Good luck.
Andy

Well done Andy for bringing the campsite closer to home-base!! Really looking forward to it & echo the thoughts on the 'Shot Dogs', can't wait to hear them again!!!

Richard: good to hear you've got plenty to keep your hands busy till Easter. Am still keeping an eye out for North Kent sessions, espicially now that festival weekends have calmed down a bit - well, there's one or two not sorted before Easter anyway *grin*

By the way, I hope everyone's started to collect the odd '£ coins' so you've got plenty in your pockets for the raffle tickets as well as the liquid libations...... Oh & don't forget to keep your 'unwanted' Christmas presents in a safe place as prizes!

Thanks Andy - but I have already tried turning teh fridge over daily for a week. The heating element is different for mains (works best) gas (works next best) and 12v (hardly at all - and at about 8 amps very bad for batteries). The pipework and heat exchanger is common.

The fault is usually caused by running out of vertical, and that makes stuff in the refrigerant fluid crystallise - and according to the chemists that is irreversible!

The remedy is a heart-lung transplant for the fridge at a cost of about 200squid.

But I might try it one more time, although of course since in the cold weather it does refrigerate I will have no way to test until too late....

Have you checked that the insulation around the pipe above the gas jet hasn't slipped down a bit? They often do and then the gas won't light. You just need to shove it up a bit and all will be fine and dandy once more.

The gas lights. I generate lots of heat out the flue (except on 12V). I generate enough cold in cold weather. I don't generate enough cold in hot weather. I gain about 15 degrees from outside temperature. So long as the outside temperature doesn't go over 22 degrees, teh fridge stays fridge temperature.

Strangely, the icebox makes ice no matter how hot the outside world gets.
