Now for the boring bit. I’m going to tell you a little bit about me… Please try to stay awake.
I have owned a leisure vehicle of one form or another for well over two decades. First of all it was just something to holiday in - then it became a hobby - then it became an obsession - then when I started converting my own campers it became a passion!
My employment background was in the automotive industry in which I worked for nigh on forty years and, conveniently for the purposes of this book, my speciality was in 12 volt and 24 volt electrics and battery powered systems for leisure vehicles.
As part of my job I helped mobile film crews, CCTV and surveillance operatives to improve their power consumption and get better performance from their low voltage, off-grid, electrical set-ups.
I also worked on the vans used in London’s original public bike hire scheme (Boris’ bikes) to improve the performance of the battery powered, on-board computer systems that were essential for tracking and logging the bikes in and out from the docking stations around the city (I can tell you’re impressed).
So, continuing with my story (yawn) I decided to enrol for the NCC (National Caravan Council) Motorhome Service Award which involves both on-line and practical assessments to take my knowledge of leisure vehicles to the next level. I’m pleased to say I passed and am now a proud holder of a very nice NCC certificate to prove it... The rest, as they say, is history.
