We fail to help out a fellow Campervan user.

4 Sep

Got back to our Kampa in Market Drayton today after a shopping trip to find a rather nice , dark blue VW campervan alongside. The bonnet was up so I queried what was wrong. Flat battery. No worries, says I and dug out my jump leads.

All coupled up and with a few extra revs dialled in from my faithful Renault K9K engine, I thought that our “neighbour” would soon be on his way. But , despite several attempts and checking for good jump lead connection, the VW would just not spin over quick enough and we had to abandon the rescue attempt. With the RAC on it’s way, all was not lost but I felt a bit of a failure, especially as the VW owner appeared to be from the Armed Forces and just back from a 4 month tour ? A new battery had been fitted on his departure to goodness knows where but it had been left in a flat condition, which may have been it’s ” Waterloo”. Instructions left with his wife to get it charged and keep running the VW had fell on deaf ears apparently. Hope he got it fixed.
