Finally took the plunge and got myself a Solar panel from @Roger Donoghue , gets delivered today.
We’ve both got Bose noise cancelling headphones (used most on long haul flights - remember those!). They are brilliant bits of kit.
They can be very effective, but remember to ventilate the van well as the 800 mls of water is deposited in the van, a confined space compared to a room or office.View attachment 81821

Hi Mark,After taking delivery of my new Ocean earlier this week, I have been busy shopping! Based on the invaluable advice on here, I’m starting with essentials, and will then suss out what else we are missing as we go.
25m hook up cable
Brandrup Second Skin Seat Covers for 2-seater bench “Circuit/Palladium” (note, as they are quite expensive, I wanted to see what they were like before splashing out on the front seats too. I’m really happy with the quality, so will be ordering the fronts shortly)
Ridge monkey XL
Mattress sheets (double from Dunelm)
Drawer kit for under the sink (came back into stock yesterday in the club shop)
Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 Powerbank
Still to purchase:
Brandrup second skin seat covers for front seats
Carpet from Campervancarpets.com
Dashcam (I seem set on the blackvue based on comments on here (thanks GG) plus my own research. I was looking at the DR750x 2CH but noticed there is now an upgraded DR900x 2CH.

when using the full length of 25m cable please remember to uncoil it fully to prevent potential over heating issues with the cable.

Old fashioned locksmith/cobbler in Pwllheli did a cut for me last week - I did take in a plastic blank that I got off eBay. The cutting is done with older type router costing £7.50 and works a treat; Simpsons will not help you as they say their routers are too aggressive!Hi Mark,
if you find a surf key provider for the 6.1 please post accordingly, many have struggled to find anyone to make a 6.1 surf key.
