Another Wall of Shame Post !

Had a van in for some work this week (Gaslow bottle system installed), He was visiting the area as part of an Autotrail Members Club Rally and initially came to us asking about a suspected gas leak.

We did the Gaslow work but as always out of curiosity we took a look around at anything installed on the van.

The roof had a solar panel installed by someone from the Autotrail Owners club (obviously not a professional)

We pointed out the issues to the owner but they mentioned that this particular person did quite a few installs for members of the club, short cuts like this give proper installations a bad name, Caveat EmptorĀ  !
