When in Spain last year, we visited an Aire at Luz to fill and dump. There was a group of three German motorhomes, one of which was a Merc based Rapido which would not start.
The recovery truck turned up and I thought no-way will that motorhome fit on there. After a lot of messing about trying to load the van, they realised the recovery load bed was too short and would have destroyed the overhang on the camper when being winched on. I took a video of the attempts in case of an insurance claim.
Meantime one of the blokes phoned a mate who worked for Mercedes and was told fuse 23 was the problem. They replaced that and it fired up OK much to the relief of all concerned.
A loud round of applause and a sigh of relief from the recovery operator.
As an aside, to line up the motorhome for the recovery truck, my wife helped to push the sickly motorhome along with another two woman. By the time I had my shoes on, it was done.
It won't be long until a wee while now.
