A little tip for the van in storage

Post by Ramble on 7/1/2010, 12:00 pm

Heres a little tip for my fellow vanners.
If your van seldom gets started cause its undergoing a rebuild you might want to make sure that ANY opening is sealed up. IE: floor plugs,air filter,vents, and espesially exhuast pipes.
Its been around 30 sumthing degress up my way and ive had a dead rat smell in my shed. Ive pulled it apart looking for it.Searched under the van, in the van, over the van. In every box I own in there but you know where it was. thats right, Up the old tail pipe.
Only worked that one out when i saw a fly buzzing around it so stuck me nose and like an IDIOT took a deep breath &
affraid ..............FOUND IT...................... affraid

Had a similar experiance with a buggy that was stored in a shed in the bush,when we tried to start it a bat flew out of the exhaust and caused havic in the shed,fun for all trying to avoid it and its diseases.
