    We are at a lovely bush camp about 3 hours East of Perth, WA. It has flushing toilets, a free gas barbecue and stove top and water. Lovely spot. And we were joined by our wonderful friends Karen and Paul Slater from nearby Merredin. Karen is our forum’s hardworking Webmaster...

    Hi, Due to recent upgrade of original toilet I have for sale a Thetford C200 cassette (green with yellow cap & button....for ID purposes) Recently had a new blade seal fitted.....would make a great spare unit. New replacement unit $200 $50 plus postage. We are leaving here (home) on the 14th Nov for 4 months.....would like it gone by then, or you will have to wait for our return March/April.

    We also cooked a battery very early in the year. I always keep the batteries above 70% soc so it was a surprise. I found the charger was overcharging the batteries by keeping them in absorption mode for way too long. It was a pwm type charger. When I replaced the batteries I also replaced the charger with an mppt type charger with a more battery friendly charge algorithm. All good now. Cheers Stu

    Hi, Considering upgrading my current Thetford C200 (plastic bowl) to a Thetford C263 (ceramic bowl) Suppose I'm looking for feedback from people who done this and also looking for feedback from people who already have a C263 fitted from new. I am aware that the exterior access door can be reused, but has to be turned 90 degrees (hinge down) which will leave some side panel modification work to be done.....would really like to see some 'after' photos. Interior wise I have been told a C263 will fit,....the unit is approx 60mm wider and 10kg's heavier which I can accept. Any feedback appreciated....thanking you. https://www.thetford-europe.com/au/product-category/toilets-au/cassette-toilets-toilets-au/

    Our batteries are 7 years old , I don’t worry about percentages of battery use . I don’t let them go below 12.2 volts . When the batteries were new 12.2 volts was 50% used . Now that the batteries are 7 years older 12.2 volts is 30% used . Nev

    Yes Kevin, agree with Grahame, time to get two new batteries. We had to replace the two batteries (3yrs and 2mths use) in our van earlier this year. They were working fine, pulled up for an overnight camp on the Plenty highway and had no power at all. Couldn’t pump water, flush the toilet, light the stove and of course no lights. Had to revert to manual mode. I might also add the ALL the batteries in the van died that day, ie smoke detector, torches, blood glucose monitor and hearing aid batteries. We laugh about it and said the Min Min lights out of Boulia got us. When we arrived in Alice Springs we dropped the van off at the auto elects and we went went for new batteries. $$$ The joys of caravanning.

    Two aliens landed in the Arizona desert near a gas station that was closed for the night. They approached one of the gas pumps and the younger alien addressed it saying . . ."Greetings, Earthling . . . we come in peace . . . . Take us to your leader"The gas pump of course didn't respond.The younger alien became angry at the lack of response. The older alien said, “I’d calm down if I was you"The younger alien ignored the warning and repeated his greeting, again there was no response . . .Miffed at the pumps haughty attitude, he drew his ray gun and said gruffly "Greeting Earthling . . . We come in peace . . . Take us to your leader or I will fire"The older alien again warned his comrade saying, "You probably don't want to do that, I think it will make him mad""Rubbish", replied the cocky young alienHe aimed his weapon and opened fire . . . . There was a huge explosion.A massive fire-ball roared towards him and blew the younger alien off his feet and threw him in a burnt smoking mass about 200 yards away into a cactus patch.Half an hour passed . . . .When he finally regained consciousness, he refocused his three eyes, straightened his antenna, and looked dazedly at the older, wiser alien who was standing over him shaking his big green head . . . ."What a ferocious creature!" exclaimed the young fried alien . . ."He damn near killed me!" "How did you know he was so dangerous?"The older alien leaned over, placed a friendly feeler on his crispy friend and replied . . ."If there is one thing I've learned during my intergalactic travels, you never mess with a guy who can loop his manhood over his shoulder twice and then stick it in his ear!

    Hi all, Arrived here this afternoon, made to feel very welcome in this friendly town. There are thirty plus van and motor homes here, well set up area here at the showground. Lyn Astill is here in her motorhome, she is trying to get to Kilkivan if the planets align. A couple that Clive & Sandra Saunders meet on their recent WA trip John & Karen Siddle are here also in their TE, working on them to join, unfortunately due to geographic difficulties they won’t be able to attend Kilkivan this year. The organisers here have done a great job, barefoot bowls this arvo and dinner at the local bowls club, a local farm tour tomorrow, rodeo tomorrow night. Sunday local touring, entertainment at the pub on Sunday before the footy final and a camp oven dinner 🥘 The local area is very dry......maybe not as dry as some of the country Annie and I have seen in the last fortnight.....but believe me these people are doing it tough. Funds raised this weekend are being distributed to those in need by the local Lions Club. Photos of amazing trash, treasure, collectables, antiques and some really amazing rare stuff worth LOTS at this local property we visited this morning.....four shed’s of it and so much outside, lovely welcoming family.
