Will do, it gets a good run next Monday as I have work in Maidenhead, I also need to make a decision when I drop it off for Simon,
do I go for vapour take off ? looking at pro’s & con’s 🤔
I find the vapour take off its easy to plug a gas cooker up and put the kettle or frying pan on with out carrying another bottle Normal gas bottles on there own are a lot more expensive on Holiday last year down in Cornwall staying in a static van I cooked the brekky out side to keep the smell and fat splashes out of the van

Thanks for posting this Eddie,
I just dropped my van off this morning and was still uncertain on vapour take off but but the bullet and said do it, then on the way home I was still wondering if it was worth doing.
🤔🤔🤞
Your comment reassures me

Not worth doing mine at the moment it's covered in tree sap. Might give it a quick run through the car wash to show willing.

I will bring my stuff and give it a waterless wash and wax.
