Michael and Pam's Travels Our European Motorhome Adventures and other Travels

Landau, Germany ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช 2022

Date: 5-6th September 2022

Travelled: 28 kms from to Speyer to Landau ย ย 

Visited:ย  Landau ย  ย 

Stayed: Fiat Landau, โ‚ฌ, N00.31090, E00.45050ย ย 

Budget: 104 days @ โ‚ฌ105 per day

On Monday morning to our surprise someone at the breakdown service answers the phone. After getting all sorts of assurances and promises we wait another 6 hours and a retriever arrives to pick up the Hymer. He looks at the Hymer tells us it will need to be taken to Landau some distance away and he doesnโ€™t have authorisation to take it that far, so we wait another hour.

Anyway we finally get moving to Fiat Landau, which as it happens is a motorhome specialist.

So we arrive as the dealer is closing, they show us where to park and connect us to power.

Next day a mechanic has a look and tells us they have ordered a new radiator spigot, a โ‚ฌ10 part. We are told it will be here tomorrow. Another long day. Landau has little else to offer unfortunately.

Next morning the mechanic appears with the part, it doesnโ€™t fit. The spigot which appears to be identical, has a finer thread. The thought of a couple more days in Landau has us both in despair.

A fitter mechanic from the motorhome section comes over has a look, taking the bits. An hour or so later he re-appears having made a new spigot from an old bolt but with the same thread. He makes a few adjustments, then fits the makeshift spigot, re-fills the Hymer with coolant and gives it a 30 minute test.

Thereโ€™s no leaks and we get the nod we are good to go. It cost a lot more than โ‚ฌ10 but so happy to be back on the road. We set the GPS for Worms and get the hell out of Landau.
