    I feel like every motorhome and caravan forum I've been on to ask for advice, I get 'Ask any question! We want to help!' And then when I ask for help and advice because I just don't want to electrocute myself or blow the electrics, I get 'This is a wind up!'.

    It's really made me not want to ask anything else, let alone go to a meet-up where you can all tell me how dumb i am in person. And as for the hairdryer arguments...Jesus, we need to dry our hair so we don't get a cold. We have longer, thicker hair than most men. i have an undercut, so I've done my best but I'm not willing to get a cold just because random blokes on a forum would rather take the piss than actually be helpful and just answer a question.

    This is all, already, really overwhelming for me. I just wanted some advice, but it feels impossible to get that anywhere without being made to feel like I'm unwelcome.

    It's 2019. It's chaos....be kind.
    Apologies if you were upset, I did use a question mark and give good advice thereafter, The reason I questioned is it is not uncommon for free members to join and take the rise out of the membership, especially those with few posts .Bar the first remark you did get a useful answer eg membership and meets is a great way of discussing your needs and given the options

    Quite frankly you seem to have rattled one or two cages with your briskness and so to that end . I will cease to reply to anymore of your threads, In fact if people comments upset that much there is an ignore button feel free to use it

    I know you can get them but not up to much. 12v straighteners on the other hand, Caz has a brilliant set but no idea where we got them or who made them.
    Sneak into public loos and put you head under them new hand driers,also good if you pull the front of your trousers open under them to warm some bits in winter.

    A small 100w panel will do then,you will require one of these first of all,then a usb lead for ph and a voltage up buck for laptop.
    A solar regulater like this should be the best one.
