  1. If roof mounted solar panels are connected to battery through rectifier. Do they need to be disconnected before using mover?
  2. Medical travel compared My list of pre existing, is endless I got anual multi trip for less than my previous wanted for a two week holiday
  3. When we had our accident six years ago, I rang AA to be told they don't recover after an accident, car and caravan totalled, and to ring my car insurance. They were quick and we were recovered off motorway within the hour. Problem with was, recovery driver made a generic assessment and said that as the car and caravan were, write offs, in his opinion, he could only recover us to their yard. They did this and then dropped us at the local train station. In actual fact, we, had travel insurance which could have come into play, but. When you have had this type of accident, both vehicles suspected write offs, and been lucky enough to walk away from it, you're so pleased not to be injured the brain doesn't function with all the answers until the next day.
  4. I think half way down your list would present a problem for Russ. Meet the minimum eyesight standards
  5. Russ, hope you make a speedy and successful recovery. Regards the L-plates,, doesn't the passenger/tutor have to be fit enough to retain charge of the vehicle.
  6. JTQ, this garage for me is a 400 mile round trip. Fortunately I use it when staying near Verwood for the odd 4/5 weeks. I have a filling station only 7 miles from home which I have only used once in two and a half years. I try to fill up on my way home, or, when away I usually fill up on a day out. Verwood to New Milton/Lymington. I rarely use EHU and last year I used £21 worth of gas over a 5 week jaunt saving £21 a week ehu.

    Stolen caravan

    This is interesting as at five and a half years old Tracker retrieve told me my subscription was due, in order to keep my tracker active. No renewal charge given, you had to phone them. My query here is, if the battery life is five years, what's the point in renewing? I just bought a tracker, installed it, and unlike the retrieve, this one will tell me if the caravan moves..
  8. I remember the good old days, when before you had the legs down. A neighbor would come across and ask, tea or coffee.
  9. Tonight's news said the fire was started deliberately.
  10. Altered mine once, at 8yrs iirc. Took out an extra 2 k of cover. Increase was negligible.
  11. On my last caravan my insurance company gave new for old up to five years. On my sixth renewal I expected a significant drop in premium as we would Only have market value cover. The renewal came in no cheaper than year five, I rang the company and was told new for old had been extended to ten years for existing customers, I could have market value cover for a reduced premium. As I always worried about theft from storage I kept the new for old, it wasn't much more, anyway. At nine years, something I'd never considered, we had an accident, both car and caravan, wrote off. My excess was £50 and the words from my insurance company, as I picked my Brand New, replacement van. "I think you have a bargain for£50".
  12. Would this tow. 1350kgs or would I need the 2. 0. Citroen say it can pull 1500kgs, but has anyone on here used one, and what did you pull. TIA.
  13. Would it be better to buy a 30mth old car, with 6mths manufacturers warranty. Or, a 36mth old car, then buy a 12mth warranty. There is not a great difference, price wise, between the two, but the newer car has done most miles. TIA.
  14. To try and give up to date information.
