  1. I hope you are right but suspect many insurance companies will not cover Covid 19 related risks whilst the virus is circulating in the area you are visiting.
  2. Even if travel restrictions are lifted foreign travel will be a no no for many people as you cannot get travel insurance to cover anything related to Covid 19. In fact you cannot buy Red Pennant insurance from the CMC at the moment.
  3. The Caravan and Motorhome Club have just ordered the closure of its entire network of sites including CLs from today. I assume anyone on a site will be asked to leave. https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/whats-on/caravan-club-news/novel-coronavirus-advice/?fbclid=IwAR32AZTYky5SXAVVPWxZTOKYmJr2zqXdpMqBfrO_8nTZGyfqA8IMfRD73KU
  4. Aldi sold a cordless tyre inflator back in November and its great as no 12v lead to connect. Inflates to 80psi so fine for caravans. I found the built in gauge to be 2 -3 psi out so use my own trusty gauge but for the price of £25 it is worth every penny. Currently not available but like most special buys at Aldi it will be back sometime.
  5. New owners are Lunar Automotive Ltd which appears to be a new company set up a few days ago.
  6. I hope this works for you but suspect the only way to silence the heating system will be to fit the boiler mounted pump as fitted to recent Lunars.
  7. The maximum level is with hot fluid, if its cold the level should be just above the minimum level. The system will have several bleed points, my Lunar Clubman has four, 3 located next to the radiators and one on the towel rail in the bathroom. On my caravan there is one by each of the front seats and one by the nearside fixed bed. Just follow the pipework and located the radiators and you should find them. The floor mounted pump is set on 5 to push the fluid around quickly and dispel airlocks and is then normally set to position 2. Bleeding just involves unscrewing the bleed valve by hand and re tightening when fluid emerges. You may need a screwdriver for the towel rail vent. The bleed screws will look something like this -
  8. Yes use the key fob to turn it off. Note, it does stay on for a short time after setting or unsetting the alarm.
  9. Is there anyone on here with one of these units who has found a firm locally to carry out the regas service. Cool my Camper suggest it is regassed and checked for leaks every 3 years and offer this service themselves. Trouble is they are in Stamford and I am 200 miles away. They say any F Gas registered aircon engineer should be able to do it but those I have approached local to me are not interested. Can anyone recommend someone in the North West?
  10. Get yourself one of these which will show you the amps being drawn on each circuit. https://cpc.farnell.com/tenma/ten01046/current-tester-automotive-std/dp/IN04874?st=automotive current
  11. Just to finish off this thread, the repair has been done using new elbows with bleed valves. Interestingly, the valves are of a new design and have a short piece of tube coming off the bend into which the bleed valve is inserted and held with a spring clip. My originals had the bleed valves seated on the bend. Anyway, all done and new 5 year fluid installed. Now just need to get Alde to fix the night mode issue but that can wait till Autumn.
  12. Press and hold the set button until it beeps twice
  13. Hi all, my caravan is booked in with an AWS engineer on 17th and I will ask him to change the fluid for the 5 year version. Further investigation shows that I have 2 leaks both from the bodies of the bleed screws. Either I'm unlucky, its a faulty batch or some ham fisted installer has over tightened them when filling the system at the factory. Alde were helpful but could not do this job at their depot until August
  14. Thanks for the advise. I will be calling Alde today as my main Lunar dealer in Preston cannot do the work until August. Totally unacceptable level of service. I shall not be buying from them ever again.
