  1. We booked in December via caravanclub for this summer but sadly just cancelled and got a full refund £820 , tunnel and some sites , thanks Pete
  2. Forestview campsite France Facebook , just had a read from campsite owner Peter posted 11 June at 9.58 makes good reading , sorry I can't do links
  3. When we had our caravan serviced February 2020 the engineer said that the battery was draining flat and he didn’t know why so we changed to a new battery, the service guy we use is very good and has done a few things for free, the battery was from there shop and he didn’t charge fitting as he was working at our storage yard that day so I trust him, , thanks pete
  4. Hi we have 2016 major 4sb and are having same problem on second new battery in 3 years and this new one is also flat, thanks pete
  5. Owe last caravan which we sold about 4 years ago we would leave in storage for about 5 months each winter with no problems with the battery we could use the mover, this caravan battery is the second we have had to buy in 4 years if I remember rightly we got a year warranty, thanks pete
  6. I’ve seen a guy using a smart charger on YouTube, if I remember rightly he said that it could even bring back a battery that has been completely flat and on its last legs back, thanks pete
  7. Thanks for the quick replies, yes put contacts on right terminals, charger is probably about 5 years old it has RAC stamped on the front I used it may last year after my work van went flat all ok , , I’ll be driving past Halfords later if there’s any thing I can get from them,, didn’t test voltage to be fair don’t really know how to, small button hole window on top of the battery is completely black , thanks pete
  8. Hi managed to retrieve my battery from the van from which hasn’t been charged since late September, battery was bought August last year, when I’ve put it on charge I’ve 3 lights on the chargerer , charging, charged and reverse polarity replace fuse , any idea why , thanks pete
  9. Spoke to a local dealer he said Phoenix plus 640 delivery for late July but only one left, we can pay a deposit if we didn’t like when we are able to view he would refund us back, while looking on YouTube trying to compare with the cabera we also liked Pegasus brindisi but a bit worried about being 8ft wide but has all the kit we would add to the Phoenix so would work out approximately £2,500 more expensive, really like the interior decor of both the Phoenix and brindisi, thanks pete
  10. Mr plodd , brilliant great replie just what I wanted to hear , once dealers are open I need to have a look but will give dealers a call hopefully today, probably get them to fit vent fans might even wait until they start doing dealers specials in no rush really we currently have 2016 sprite major 4sb , also thinking of changing car and liked the Mazda 6 auto estate but as I said no real rush just sorting myself out, thanks pete
  11. I’ve also quite like unicorn series 4 cabrera, , don’t think I’ll us alde heating been happy for the last 30 years caravaning using basic heating , never had Atc always get tyre bands , solar panel would be handy , would really like pull up rather than pull down blinds, 153kg heavier so would need a heavier car and £5,320 at our local dealership more expensive and I’m quite a minimalist person, don’t really do bling don’t really need too, thanks pete
  12. Hi, yes it’s the new Bailey Phoenix plus 640 that we quite like I know not many people have them at the moment but would like to know what tow car you use for the Phoenix or what car you are planning to use also any cons that you have found, travelling K on YouTube rates her Phoenix very highly that’s how I found out about the fridge vents , is there anywhere I can view how to do the fan assist or will it affect the warranty, thanks pete

  14. Hi all, quite like Phoenix 640 style caravan can anyone tell me if when main door is left open does it affect the fridge vents , does it stop the fridge from working to its max especially in high temperatures with awning up, also with the back bedroom do you keep toilet doors closed when toilet not being used I like the idea of waking in the morning and being able to see the full length of the caravan especially with the large front window, it’s not just the Bailey Phoenix 640 that has this layout unicorn caberra, thanks pete
