You can check the flue with a camera without doing much.

No, not taking the ****. I have the one I linked to and have used it many times in finding water leaks, blockages in the van and broken/damaged/rusted bits in cars.

I recommend one very highly.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I regularly read about an outfit called O'Leary/O'Learies which seem to sell a huge variety of spares for most thongs MH/Caravan.

It might be worth researching them to see if they have your replacement item Barry.

Could be this lot...

The chimney is probably blocked by French spiders complaining about their living conditions in the UK after Brexit

More likely greenies/shield bugs/stink bugs just finding a comfortable overwintering home......

Such invasions SHOULD be prevented by the gauze at the top, if itís still there... and intact....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I think we have located the burner and jet now but its a question of whether the Flue is knackered or not also. So the fridge will have to come out and be properly bench tested and the flue examined. No point in putting a new burner and jet in if the Flue is blocked, too badly corroded or even if its got holes in it apparently. So the first task is to get it to my motorhome bloke next week and get him to take the fridge out.

I do wonder if just replacing the fridge might be less hassle. I doubt my guy will have one of those cameras Alan.

Someone on the OAL forum posted this excellent video. Even looks like my fridge.


So its just a question of seeing what state the flue is in and if it can be cleaned putting the right burner and jet in.

I am sticking to the same advice , get rid of it and treat yourself to a newer van , unfortunately van prices just took a jump as lots of people want a caravan or MH holiday now instead of the foreign beach type or the cruise . Although you might get a little bit more for yours , a newer one will be a lot more too.

I live in a small town and two people close to me have just bought two MH's each and started a hire out business , prices from £1100 to £1400 per week depending on size /berths. I think that says something about the supply and demand.

Just an update. Apparently the van is sorted. My fixit guy got a new burner and jet for the fridge, inspected the Flue and cleaned it out and its now working fine (so he says). He has also repaired the hole in the floor and the knackered inner arches so along with all the welding and a fresh MOT it would seem Hank is sorted. Not picked it up yet and probably wont until Monday. Bill for fixing the fridge, arches and floor is just £150 which considering the burner and jet is £70 seems cheap as chips to me.

So there is nothing stopping us getting away in it now I guess, its then just a question of maybe flogging it. Michelle is dithering on that one. I Think she wants to keep it so we can go away back end also.

Yeah, what is it with wives wanting to keep the old favourite until it dies again? Now the old Golf has got a new MOT although with some suspension advisories, she said great and good for another two years? Still gotta spend money on the old one instead of plumping for a new one.
