Finally heard back about that 'no cooking' clause. Of course they do mean no selling, but geez they could have written it better.

Except don’t do what the ‘expert’ in the last one did and mount the panel right next to the tv antenna! Even a little shade can have a big impact on output.

I've sent you a PM too.

I think it's not having a UK licence and not being a UK resident that makes the difference.

You think, at nearly 3 times yours? Even the new quote I have is twice yours. Ok, there might be a bit of a difference as I only have 1 years No Claim Bonus (I don't need insurance in Australia), but...

Doosey of all motorhome insurance clauses

Had the renewal of my insurance which was outrageously expensive anyway last year:

365 days EU cover (only...

I wouldn't put it too close to possible shading from a raised skylight or vent. You might also want to place it on a part of the roof you least mind getting sun, so not over the fridge end.

Good find, but is that the only one? I won't bother anyway as I've already bought everything to replace it with a 240 volt fridge. If you need anything from my 6505 I'll be in the UK late May.
