190 quid repair... and hmmmf...

So then - having taken the alternator to an auto electricians in Keighley, they phoned to say they had sent it off for repair (it being too complex for them) and the good news is it could be done for £190... and should have been back to their shop today (Tuesday) in Keighley...

SO - having left it as long as I could, I bought a return from Skipton and set off - I'd phoned at lunch time but the van hadn't arrived by then but "is usually here by 4 mate"...

Half past 3 I got on the train... arrived at the shop by 4.15 only to discover when they phoned to check that it had been put on the van but no label on the box - ERGO it was now heading it's way back to the specialist and they only get deliveries /collections Tuesday and Fridays... 

SO - it's plan f for now...  f being a rude word than rhythms with book!

It's a good Job my heath Robinson method of using the starter alternator goes some way towards keeping the batteries charged -   Tomorrow, we're heading off from Skipton and up to the curly wurlies ... the alternator will have to wait until I head back down this way in 10 (ish) days time.

MEANWHILE - I've booked into Reedley Marina for my final turn round of this season ... to wash and tumble dry on the mains again... it makes it so much easier.

Until next time...
