    Water inlet

    hi all, probably been covered before but the flap that holds the pump in situ whilst using and closes down when not has broken, any suggestions please, would glue work? Caravan is 2002 Bordeaux Dave
  3. Hi Ern Measured rail from above the wheel, don't want to splay out more than i have to because it would be handy if i didn't have to cover the lounge window not worried about the toilet/washroom, being fixed bed the lounge window and door are fairly close Dave Hi sounds like that is a plan i may have to use, doing away with full awning so thought a small porch would suit
  4. Hi all sorry if this is a repeat topic but i have searched for an answer, thinking of buying a Outwell bay 20a porch awning, recommended awning rail height 240 - 255 cms, my Bailey Bordeaux rail is 236 cm measured by me, does anyone have any input on this? many thanks Dave
  5. What about the winter wheels that have a padlocked cover over the wheel nuts, would that not count as a wheel lock?
  6. Hi all, wheels on or off the van for winter? I know some will say they use the van over the winter months but I don't any thoughts? Dave

    Caravan movement

    Thanks for the replies, have owned this van for 15 years, currently on a grass pitch have been for the last 3 weeks the ground is very hard even after all the rain we have experienced, never really noticed before. Dave
  8. Hi , strange question but when any one moves in the van it is really exaggerated and I can feel it all the way through the van, is it possibly because I have the steadies to tight or loose? AT the moment they are wound down fairly tight and retightened to allow for settlement, have not really noticed it this much before. Dave
  9. Hi all, I have a 2002 Pageant Bordeaux and I would be interested to know if anyone knows where I could source the concertina roof blind for the front rooflight? the one in the van has gone a bit thin with years of use, thanks in anticipation. Dave
  10. Government should not have done a lot of things, doesn't make it wrong or right, that is your personal opinion Dave
  11. Why would I want to pay more tax on fuel when my car's emissions are low enough to qualify for zero road tax, Dave

    Kuga towbar

    Evening all, probably been discussed before but here goes, changing cars at the weekend to a Kuga on a 15 plate, what i am Interested in is if I have a swan neck towbar fitted rather than a fixed flange is it likely to trigger the reversing sensors ? I know a detachable would answer my problem but I really don't need the extra expense, also any recommendations for mobile towbar fitters in the Somerset area? Any help or input would be greatly appreciated Dave

    Caravan recovery

    Thanks to all, yes the wife is included on the insurance but there is no way she would feel comfortable towing , I am with Green flag at the moment and it is coming up for renewal so I will discuss it with them, if push comes to shove I have a son with LGV license but depending on how far away we are would be a factor, thanks all again Dave
  14. Hi to all, not been here for a long while and I am sure this topic has been discussed before but here goes, my wife is concerned that if I became I'll or unable to drive whilst away on a site somewhere how would we get the caravan back home? Although she can drive she is not willing or really able to tow the caravan back home any thoughts would be welcome Dave

    Car electrics

    It was a 10amp fuse, hardly man enough like you say, will not be using the van for a while so will definitely find a better feed, thanks again Dave
