  1. I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Rick the computer guy, to come over. Rick clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call. As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error." I didn't want to appear stupid, but none the less inquired: "An ID ten T error? What's that ... in case I need to fix it again?" The computer guy grinned... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?" "No," I replied. "Write it down," he sa
  2. A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little grey hair he had left. Amazing, he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, What am I doing? I'm too old for this, so he pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up
  3. Wheel arches, fridge vents, holes in the floor for pipes, cables etc, if you have a rear kitchen the rangehood vent, etc are all entry points. Use of a good quality flexible sealant works, and make sure there is no dust or dirt where you apply the sealant as it won't work and in time open up a gap. We were on a tag-along a few years ago with 10 vans in all. At the end of the first day on dirt the owners of a Jayco opened the door to be greeted by a thick, and I mean thick, layer of dust over every thing in the van. Bas
  4. PEEING ON MY FLOWERS IT HURTS JUST TO READ THIS!!! A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag." "Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me, Officer." "Well, now, not so fast," said the policeman.
  5. Hi Rob Suggest you contact Kedron as it has some Dometic 218s in stock as of a few days ago. Cheers Bas
  6. An elderly man in Queensland had owned a large property for several years. He had a dam in one of the lower paddocks where he had planted mango and avocado trees. The dam had been fixed up for swimming when it was built and he also had some picnic tables placed there in the shade of the fruit trees. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the dam to look it over, as he hadn't been there for a while. He grabbed a ten-litre bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the dam, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.
  7. Hi Ross and Leah, welcome to the forum. What was the problem with your Vitrifrigo? Compared with the 215 Dometic, the 240 litres of the Vitrifrigo gave that great bit of extra room, and going to the 190 litres of a Bushman would be a real step back. Rob, are there any Virifrigo DP2600s (230 litres) available. The only complaint we had with the Vit was that it iced up quite quickly and did not have a defrost cycle like the Dometic. Perhaps that has changed with the later models. Bas
  8. We were considering replacing our 215 with a 218 but Dometic gave us the same story as to you. Enquired about factory seconds, and was advised they are fridges which are replaced under warranty, there are none in stock due to discontinuation of the 218. Have you looked at the Thetford T1274E as a possibility? Cheers Bas
  9. A bloody good, old fashioned poem - 'nuthin’ like ‘em This is particularly for those who remember what it was like to have a DUNNY! The Old Service Station The service station trade was slow. The owner sat around, With sharpened knife and cedar stick, Piled shavings on the ground. No modern facilities had they, - the log across the rill Led to a shack, marked His and Hers That sat against the hill. 'Where is the 'Ladies Restroom', sir?' - and the owner leaning back,
  10. AN OLDER LADY An older lady headed to the bank to make a withdrawal. She handed her bank card to a bank cashier and said, “I would like to withdraw $10. The cashier told her, “For withdrawals less than $100 please use the ATM.” The old lady wanted to know why… The cashier returned her bank card and irritably told her, “These are the rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a line of customers behind you.” The old lady remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the cashier and said, “Please help me withd
  11. The Brothel Parrot . . . A woman went to a pet shop where she immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. 'Why so little,' she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, 'Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, so it says some pretty vulgar stuff.' The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird any way. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looke
  12. While we still have some caravanning days in us we have decided to sell our beloved, comfortable and faithful ATV and have purchased a 2014 XC3. While it is not a massive difference in age, the criteria that a replacement van had to be a Kedron has been satisfied. When we unpacked the ATV we were amazed how much "stuff" we had been carting around, and for much of that "stuff" the travelling days are over. Here is the link for the ad. 2006 Kedron ATV-SSE-AD-6903532 - caravancampingsales.com.au Bas
