It’s been a while since my last post, however it’s not been quiet in the Caravan Chronicles office. We have booked our next jaunt out and seeing as it’s our 30th Wedding Anniversary we decided to go back to The Old Oaks for a few days as we thoroughly enjoyed our last visit there… and it is one of the best sites in the UK!

Multimeter1I’ve not been twiddling my thumbs in the meantime. A lot of caravanners buy simple multimeters so they can keep an eye on their leisure battery when charging and over wintering it. Apart from checking the voltage of the leisure battery now and again, the humble multimeter may not get used for anything else. With this in mind I have started writing a series of basic fault-finding guides on a tow bar and caravan electrical systems using a simple multimeter. I’ve tried to write it in an easy style without getting too technical. I’m indebted to Pete Baker who has proved a valuable ‘editor’ challenging me to keep it simple and stopping me from my usual grammatical disasters. Thanks Pete. The articles can be found under the “Help Guides” tab, just scroll down to ‘Fault Finding’.

I’ve had a number of emails asking about if I’m planning to do any project writeup’s with a few suggestions for projects. The most frequent project I have been asked about is a detailed step by step writeup on installing a motor-mover. Although a mover is on our wish list, (I missed out on an ex demo unit a while ago) we don’t have any plans in the near future to buy one, so it might be a while before I can do that as a project.

The blog has been increasingly gaining followers, (thanks) both via direct email updates and Twitter. If you want to follow Caravan Chronicles, I don’t directly email or generally re-tweet so I’m not going to fill your inbox with rubbish.
