Over cooked battery ( not on the Remoska)
We were really looking forward to going to the Hop Farm in Paddock wood for the long week end.
First of all I popped down the paper shop in the discovery, I noticed that I had lost power and when the power came back it belted out black smoke from both exhausts. we took it back to Barratts as it is new and still under warranty. had to leave it.
We started to put some water into the water tank on the motorhome, water was gushing out of the underneath, I checked the leisure battery and it had dropped to 8amps and if it drops under ten amps the boiler dumps the water. checked the battery and it was blown up like a football, we have only had this motorhome a few weeks so went back to the dealer, the mechanic said the battery was about to explode and had we not of noticed it the battery would have exploded whilst we were away. they changed the battery.
I now know what the burning smell was , I put a thread on this site re keeping link up on when at home because I had a burning smell and I was worried.
At least I know to go with my instincts now.
We had a lovely week end after all of that. The Hop Farm was very relaxing, good clean hot showers and 400 acres of lovely country side walks. My husband kept on about the lovely hot showers so I thought I would give them a go. I stripped off and stood under the shower, pressed the shower button and 8O 8O 8O 8O It was freezing, it got hot a few seconds after and then it was too hot. I couldn't wait to get out. it wasn't just my eyes that looked like 8O it was the upper parts of my body as well ha ha
