1 Then proceed to.... Move your cursor across different parts of the vehicle for an explanation of how those parts work. Check out the awning, mirror, lights, front wheel. Use the home button to return to the picture.
The lights of the vehicle are to assist with seeing at night and also being seen during dark or low visibility times. They should be turned on shortly after sunset, during fog and sometimes during heavy rain. The lights are operated from a switch on the indicator stalk. There are two lights within the casing – a side light which can be used when the vehicle is parked in poorly lit areas, and a main beam light which has two settings – low beam used when there is oncoming traffic or you are following another vehicle, and a high beam used when there is no other traffic in view. When you rotate the light switch on the stalk, the switch connects the relevant circuit. One position connects the side light circuit, while a two turn position continues to complete the side light circuit, but also connects the main beam circuit. A separate action of the stalk (pulling towards you) activates the high and low beam modes for this circuit.
The wheel is connected to the axle via a hub which is bolted on to the driveshaft through the centre of the axle. When you turn the steering wheel a series of cogs turn the drive shaft in the axle which in turn drives the wheel. When the wheel is in contact with the ground the vehicle moves forward or backward depending on the gear that is engaged.
The side view mirror enables the driver to see down either side of the campervan. This is useful to know when traffic is travelling behind you or passing you. The side mirrors are also useful when backing as you can see down either side of the vehicle. Mirrors on this campervan can be tilted and angled via a switch inside the cab. The switch can be turned to select the left or right mirror, and also levered to tilt the mirror up or down or angled in or out. A wire inside the mirror connects the mirror to the switch inside the cab.
The awning is used to provide protection from the weather – it provides shade on hot sunny days, and a dry area on light rainy days. It should not be used in windy weather without really secure tie downs or it might flip right over the roof of the campervan and damage the surface. To operate the awning you use a long hook that connects into the winder mechanism. When you turn the handle, the turning mechanism turns also and the awning bars extend out pushing the covering out to provide the required protection. To close the awning you wind the handle in the opposite direction and the extender bars retract.
The cunning fox was out hunting at night in the moonlight. He came to farmer Brown’s home paddock, and snuck down to the henhouse. The chickens were all asleep in the roost. The fox patiently dug his way into the henhouse with thoughts of chicken dinner in mind. BUT.. just as he opened the door to the roost...
The light went on in the farm kitchen. The back door burst open and Farmer Brown came running down the paddock. He had his shot gun in his hand and he looked like he had roast fox in mind. Next
The chicken on the far roost began clucking and squawking and heaving. All of a sudden out from under her feathers appeared... A B
a golden egg. The egg cracked open and a trail of smoke shot out from the shell. Out of the smoke appeared a genie with an angry look on his face. “Oh greedy fox!” he growled. “What are you doing in Farmer Brown’s henhouse? I do believe you have come to steal a chicken. But today is not your lucky day, for instead of stealing a chicken, you are going to become one. And from this day forward, you will live in constant fear of greedy foxes!” There was another great puff of smoke, and where the fox had prepared to pounce, sat a very small and feeble chicken.
a golden egg. The egg cracked open and a trail of smoke shot out from the shell. Out of the smoke appeared a genie. “Greetings master fox,” said the genie. “Your wish is my command. What would you have me do for you tonight? “Aha genie” grinned the fox. “I would like you to carry me back to my den and lay out a feast for Mrs Fox and all our little children.” “Your wish is my command,” bowed the genie, and before you could count to ten the fox was back in his den seated at a banquet with his wife and the three baby foxes. “Life is looking up,” said Mrs Fox. “Now we will live happily ever after.” And they did.

When the first snow fell it was like a light powdering of salt had been sprinkled in the grass. In the shadow of the trees no snow settled and the grass was still quite green.
The snow had settled amongst the flowers, as if they had been wrapped in cottonwool.
A thick blanket of snow was draped across the front window like a lady’s evening wrap at a fancy ball. Ice cream cones of white were also atop the gate posts.
Jack Frost had left his telltale footprints in the snow – coming and going as if not knowing where to go.
The snowman sat silently, attired in his best red scarf and sporty orange hat. Eleanor skipped and laughed, but the snowman was as silent as the snow – not even a wink of an eye gave him away.
