Our MH was for sale
Due to my age, 80 years old, and health reasons we are forced to give up the pleasures of a motorhome.
Our motorhome has been sold! So this web site will not be updated again.
Description of the motorhome can be seen through out the pages of my web site here.
The MH has MOT until MAR 2017 and its mileage is 109228.
The spare wheel on my Wanderer has to be the most neglected item. I mentioned to the selling dealer about the inconvenient position, his comment was "What are the AA for!" It concerned me, how efficient are the AA on the continent where we do a lot of travelling. Would the tyre have the correct pressure if I was forced to change it?
With this in mind and when I saw the advertisement of this brilliant idea, i.e. "The SPAIRLINE." With the purchase, I had gone someway to allay my worries.
This device simply is an extension to the Tyre inflation valve, attach it to the spare wheel and bring the extension valve out to a convenient position. That's it.
The device is 40ins [102cm] long and was long enough to bring the pipe to edge of the Wanderer rear side wall at a height in line with tyres. I would suggest others measure the length for their own Motorhomes, and when ordering mention the required length.
Also check to ensure the pipe will be long enough to drop with the spare wheel cradle when it is required.
Below are some images of the Spairline in position.

Spare Wheel CradleCleanup
The spare wheel cradle had not been painted correctly from new. See above image. This has been removed and cleaned. I then painted it with "Hammerite." I have also loosened off the securing bolts of the cradle and greased them well.
Unfortunately this work and the changing of the spare wheel does involve lying on ones back!
For the same reasons as above I cleaned and painted the cradle of the Waste water tank with "Hammerite"
