People just sometimes disappear and it's nice to see them return unscathed. 4 years from an anode, you done very very well there. What purpose does diverting the hot water actually do ??

It's a simple tap in the en-suite cupboard in the hot water line, when the hose is warm you turn it off and have a shower, saves running the shower and wasting water waiting for it to heat up.

I noticed a bit of tyre wear on the outside of both nearside tyres after our last trip,so it's getting an alignment done on Thursday, it will be interesting to see how far out it is.

We had the alignment done on Thursday and they found the toe out was out of spec on two wheels so hopefully that sorts out the tyre wear problem, gave the van a wash once it was home as it was looking a bit untidy and I have a few mods planned to fill in some time while we can't go anywhere. Just waiting on some bits to arrive in the mail and I can make a start.

Thats too neat and tidy, I smell a photo set up................................... my annex poles are in the shed somewhere along with the annex, last time I saw them was 4 yrs ago, I think they are still there.... too flamin heavy for me........I'm thinking of putting a door on one end of my boot to save me digging from the front door....they do look good.

No set up, if it's neat it's easy to find things, I also don't put to much in here as we have another boot that holds our chairs, hoses, leads and a few small items, this van came with a brand new annex but it was sold as we used our last one twice in 3 years. And I much prefere this tunnel boot over the front boot that our 17.55.8 Journey had.

I ordered a new outside light from caravans plus at the same time as the oven shelf as the original one failed last time we where away, fitted it today and noticed the old one had water inside.

One mod I did in the tunnel boot was to relocated the water pump into a box directly under the floor to where jayco put it, and then cut the walls down to only surround the HWS and water feed pipe. I can now get an extra storage box in the tunnel with the bonus that it can be accessed through the old pump inspection lid under the bed (that now has a hinge on it)

I have looked into putting a lid over the water pump as there is a lot of wasted space above it but decided not to as we have to much storage with this van anyway.
