How to…

As a member of several campervan and motorhome Facebook groups and forums I often see the same questions coming up repeatedly, often regarding practicalities and technology. It’s easy to forget that we’re all a beginner at one point and none of us are experts in everything.  For example, technology is creeping into campervan/MH ownership yet may out there are self-confessed technophobes.

We all learn from other and from experience, which makes Facebook groups and web so great as they make it easy for people to share their experiences.   However sometimes the sheer amount of often conflicting responses to questions posted can itself be confusing to the originator.

So I’ve decided to start a series of ‘How to’ posts covering topics that I commonly see people asking, and I’ll aim to expand it to a variety of topics over time.  I hope you find them useful – I’m no expert (though having been in the mobile/telecoms industry for 30 years I have a keen interest in technology and gadgets) so any advice will be based on my own knowledge and experience, but remember I too am learning all the time!

If I recommend any products then invariably they are product I’ve used myself.  I am an Amazon Affiliate which means that if you click on any links and purchase then I will receive a small commission – at no cost to you.  The few pounds a month I may earn help towards the cost of hosting my blog.
