    Autogearbox

    Agree :) We towed a caravan for about 50 miles without realising that handbrake for the caravan was on. It is stupid and we should have checked - there is no excuse for that.:cry: There is a autobox temp gauge installed as well as a large Hayden transmission cooler. Box was recently filled...

    Cash money while travelling abroad

    We use Amex Travellers cheques. I think you can get prepaid cards from fairfx euro and caxton. We tend to spread our travel cash a bit - some in travellers cheques, some in cash, and the rest on prepaid cards.

    Aircon and smoke

    Sorry for asking a dumb question :icon-question: where do I adjust the tension for the aircon belt? Do I need a sst or any other tool to adjust it? I am thinking of removing the aircon belt temporarily - till I have a chance to take it to a aircon specialist. Thanks

    Uninsured vehicle hot spots
