It's not an easy balance to achieve Mike, I did a couple with music and even I didn't like the result so removed them, I think if it is proper music rather than the porn type you often get, and at a low volume it works, but some out there are really unwatchable, and some voice overs border on being painful too, very unnatural.

It's a hard call to make, as there is definitely polarised audience opinion.

Having done videos on a different channel without any backing music the conclusion was that they were a little "monotone", "boring" just with narration.

I'll keep a track on feedback and see if we can find a happy medium.

Mike,
I think the majority of Motorhome owners are past the 60 mark and some are a little hard of hearing, but these booms they hear better than your voice and it does truly get annoying. TV documentaries are very good at putting people off because of what some people refer to as music, to me and many others its a din and I have the hearing of a mouse. A little background music can be tolerated as long as its way back
Hans had to watch your video, sound off, because of the terrible noise, he wears 2 hearing aids, If I asked on this forum how many are hard of hearing I think we would all be surprised at the result.

I have found all your videos and I think you'll be a great asset to this forum so please don't go away
Some of the vids have real music in the background being faded out when you speak, thats better.

I went to youtube and typed ExploreVan.uk and there you are. Lots to watch including your holidays with the family.
You wanna know what I think, just ask and I tell it like it is I'm old enough, I'm allowed to.

I'm Jan

Thanks all, I really appreciate the welcome and the feedback, which has some great points.

I'm sure we can get to a point where future videos are comfortable for everyone.

It may not be ideal for all, but my videos do have Closed Captions / subtitles, just hit the (CC) button.

They are automatically generated but I do try to cast my eyes over them and correct any obvious errors, but bear with me if I miss any.

Some of my US audience find them useful when they can't understand my accent

I also found it interesting and, perhaps because I'm "only" 67, I didn't find the background sounds off-putting
Thank you.

I was interested in some of the technicalities:
If the air temperature is 4.5deg, why is the bodywork 3deg and the wheel-arches even lower?
Sometimes the camera was square on to the surface and at other times it was angled: does this make a difference?
[I appreciate that it doesn't affect the comparative values for the screen and covers in so far as the rake of the screen is concerned.]

I think I shall be getting a sheet of that thin flexible insulation to place under the mats in the cab, as my feet are often cold

Thanks again - Gordon

Hi Gordpn,

Yes, this intrigued me too - Don't think the angle should make much difference but it may do, you do see a difference in heat dissipated with reflective / matt surfaces. I think it is more likely to do with the fact that the probe for the air temp is under the van and therefore protected (and possibly warmed from the road surface) more than the exposed panels. Not sure if windchill impacts sheet metal?

There is also variation in the temperature of the panels with the low part of the panels being colder than the top of the panels, I put this down to the fact of the heat rising inside the van. This may be the reason some of the area around the wheel arches were particularly low.

What do you think?

Mike
