Good post Joga! Often wondered why they took the pins out.


 They removed the handle locks because, locking the pump handle open is an offence........Rick

We purchased a 12 volt fan on ebay. I installed above the bed, connecting to the wiring for the light above the bed. So can turn on light or fan to suit. Great $25 investment.
Also had our large dining table reduced in width and then had both pieces with hinges attached to still allow us to have the big table when necessary. Gives us heaps more room in the kitchen region of van.

 After removing the old table (the one built by a blind blacksmith) I needed something lighter and more user friendly, I built one from an old ironing board. I chopped off the pointy end and topped it with a nice varnished plywood top. Pull the latch and it folds down and stores under the bed. p.s I even used it once for ironing.......Rick

We need headings on these handy tips so we can find them again. The mozzie one sounds great. When we put in a 3000lt tank we had to have a 35lt first flush pit. That's a mozzie breeding hole!


 Cover the first flush pit with vegetable oil, mozzies cant get through it to breed, I have used it on rainwater tanks to stop the wrigglers. Skim the surface of the tank regularly and replenish with fresh (clean) oil...................Rick
