At least you have your license Mick as we are hoping Albert will have soon

Although freedom to travel may not be as easy as obtaining the license

hI Penguin Thank you for your reply. Firstly the battery charger is not charging the starter battery, it starts when switched on and when interior lights are turned on it speeds up but seeing that there is another charger attached to the leisure battery I assume the Sargent one is naff. Also when the lights are turned on, both batteries ( starter and leisure ) show discharge. I assume this is because the charging roles have been reversed in that the leisure battery is now charging the starter battery and there is no gizmo between them to stop the starter battery from discharging when leisure power is used. What I would like to do is replace the metal fusebox with a plastic one to separate the fuses add a new motorhome battery charger and a new power supply unit but hopefully keep the control panel, whether this is possible I dont know but would be prepared to buy a complete rewire set which is not that expensive but would need guidance on the best control system to have and maybe how to wire it in, as getting it done by a company is prohibitive. Wouldn't want another Sargent.

Welcome back I do hope we will be hearing more from you.

It would also be good if you filled in some of your details.

Oh bless your cotton socks, I meant fill in your details so they show under your user name on the left then we can see who you are and what you drive any time you post.

To do this go to the top of this page and click on tools, on the drop down list User CP on the left hand side you will see `Your Profile´ if you fill some of this in that would be lovely.

What user name is your Polly - Mick. I am going to have a look at your website now, not to look at you, but the animals you look after , what a lovely way to live. I love animals, but I also love being at home so they would have to come to me.

Not that easy. I had to pass my medical and eyesight test first. Just wasn't expecting to pass.

We aren’t disjointed Mick, stiff jointed a lot of us maybe.

So, I have shown you where the profile filler in is, what else can I show you? What are you having difficulty with?

No not that easy

Grandfather rights are exempt from that

Only those that have undertaken a test to drive up to 7 tons have an extension

Others who Can drive up to seven tons on grandfather rights still need to pass a medical Test every three years
