  1. Past hour
  2. I understand that that is well out of date and this helps to show current restrictions. https://www.crit-air.fr/en/information-about-the-critair-vignette/french-environmental-zones-zcr/french-environmental-zones.html John
  3. and another from me Andy enjoy the best forum
  4. Some years ago on a C/L/ site in scotland we came back to find a caravan so close that the windows ( when/if ) opened would touch. Complained to C/L owner who came to the people concerned & at the top of her voice told them that mr Dxxxx was not happy with them & they would have to move. they moved ( much grumbling ) and for the rest of our stay we were ostricised by all the other C/L users. we never went back...........
  5. I just fitted a TMV today. TMV bought through Amazon for £28.98. After lots of searching on line, got a 10mm brass barbed equal tee for £2.96, from local pneumatic supplies centre. Three extra jubilee clips for the hose connections on the barbed tees (Never a drip with.... ) A bit of a faff getting the existing hoses off the barbed equal tee connectors, but got there in the end. I decided to use hoses for the connections to the TMV, so cut down an old water hose from a washing machine, which was a good fit for the 15mm olive and union nut into which I slipped an inch of 10mm copper tube into the hose to give it strength and rigidity. The barbed tees fitted the hose nicely too! The existing hoses were not suitable for connecting directly to the TMV All connected up and the job's a good-un, even if it looks a bit of a bird's nest! Had to adjust the temperature to our liking, but it all works well.
  6. My caravan was the same, the relay breaks supply as it changes over caravan battery to car battery and the radio auto switches on to demo mode, I swapped the fuse used for radio to one powered all the time, this means both the radio and the aerial amplifier are powered all the time, so there is a small drain, but stops radio auto turning on.
  7. The easy way to find out what is available when you are on site is to dig into your phone setup and find the way to select the network manually. It will take a minute or two whilst it scans but eventually it will show you all of the SPs and the bands of those SPs on which it can find a signal. You can then chose which SP to use. Then just cancel the search and your phone will revert to your normal operator. One thing not mentioned is that if you connect your mi-fi to a laptop with a phone charging cable, open a browser, and enter its IP address (usually 192.168.1.1) you will get into the mi-fi built-in web server and from there you can send and receive texts, i.e. on a SP other than your own. Most of them allow you to do it from the mi-fi screen as well but it is very tedious.
  8. Issue seems to fixed. Purchased new switch unit and PCB from Intec Services and Gas Heater now work. Can't test mains till on a site with mains.
  9. we had our 2018 coachman Vip 460 for its 1st service this week and were shocked to be told that 90% damp present above the door anyone else had this?
  10. Today
  11. Make sure that you get the caravan cluster and not the motorhome one. There is a subtle difference in that the caravan needs triangular reflectors and the motorhome ones are round. You may also find that caravan ones are almost double the price.
  12. I've had to replace one of the curtain tracks in ours. I bought a length of J rail and cut some short pieces off it, about 1" long, to make the bits for the curtains. The stuff that I bought was soft enough to use a sewing machine on.
  13. We have been through the Gotthard three times, the last time being 1999. My memory of it was that it wasn't very well lit. Lights were fitted at regular intervals but without any great spread. Consequently driving became as though you were watching a flashing light. Hopefully the lighting may be improved by now. The two traffic lanes were without any form of barrier between them, so one needed to stay alert for wide HGVs passing in the opposite direction. As others have said, the tunnel goes on for more than 10 miles with a speed limit so it becomes tedious. The road on either side of the tunnel has a gradient but nothing to cause concern.
  14. UNLESS YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE OR GAS( for some stupid reason to both)YELLOW CLASS 2 IS THE LOWEST YOU CAN GO! NOT MANY RESTRICTIONS!!!
  15. You need a right hand cassette... This... Click
  16. AFAIK the only actual restrictions are in grenoble and inside the ring road in Paris.
  17. I have a Lienwand kitchen tent which has what looks to be the same curtain rail. Here's a picture of the curtain clip. It looks like the clips are machine stitched to the curtain, I suggest Paul_B's recollection is spot-on
  18. There are dozens of different types of UPVC door hinges and most can be replaced however, it's not a simple DIY job. For a start, the doors are very heavy so it becomes a two-man job to fix it so that it closes and locks correctly. A company which I've used in the past for exchange locks also do UPVC hinges.
  19. Can someone please help advise on what type or size of car I would require to tow an Elddis avante 550 2017 model? Many thanks in advance.
  20. +1 Use silicone lubricant or margerine.
  21. I have had many vans over the years and never had this problem so I was dubvious when the dealer told me about the O rings but he said it's common now a days I worked out that since new we had only used the caravan five times so the O rings shouldn't have gone so soon but to avoid getting caught out again I bought a few O rings to carry as spares. I was prepared to buy a new pump which the dealer could have sold me but instead he resolved the problem free of charge .
  22. Interesting comments on electrics and pricing...a site we use annually ,non club, has just put their rates up from £3.50 to £5.00 a night............" if you don't want to pay that don't order it" geoff
  23. I was told never to use Vaseline as it contains petrol which degrades the rubber (or whatever they're made from). Same with the toilet cassete seal. Use olive oil instead. John
