    There is so much to learn, it all sounds as if everyone is light years ahead of me! I am enjoying using my iPad, so
    good to use technology for fun!! ( only really used IT for word processing and spreadsheets before)
    Love using the iPad with my young grandsons ( yes I've put a screen saver on!) and enjoy the apps which are superb. Will never buy a newspaper or book again.
    Would love to know how best to charge the iPad when in a motor home, there is a 12volt socket on the dash and also alongside the three pin sockets but how do I charge it up when the motor home is stationary? I know even less about motor home electrics than I do about iPads!
    Thanks for the welcome!

    When your motor home is stationary and connected to an outside power source you should be able to use one of the regular wall sockets to plug in the charger that came with your iPad.
