Re: Running Rm212 fridge on solar?

Hi all
I was told at a caravan repair centre that gas on a 3 way fridge is the easiest to fix and always doable.

Only done a little bit outside, have got water in the upper cavity and discovered a hole in my tin roof( back right corner) roof needs to come off and remove all the interior. I will only then just be scratching the surface. :lol:
Fingers crossed

Re: Additional lap belts

Hi all,

My caravelle high top has 1 3point and 1 lap. Im thinking of putting another 3 point in but it only has a 3/4 bed. Is this possible to have 2 3 points and a lap top too?

Advice greatly appreciated
