    LED lights

    Hi again Took the car to the dealers this morning and with a really helpful guy from the workshop plugged the car into the caravan and worked all the lights and with no issues so no VLM unit needed. Thanks again for the replies.

    Hi all I'm just after some information. I've finally changing my van...Picking it up in 2 weeks. The new van to me has LED rear lights and was wondering would this give problems with the car detecting the indicators working. At the moment a trailer logo flashes up on the dash when indicators are working or am I worrying over nothing. I will have to use a twin 7 pin to 13 pin plug adapter for a short time till I get the plugs changed on the car. Many thanks Hinchy
  5. Thanks everyone I'll think I will stick with going for grp sides on my next purchase, due to having to many dents repair in the pasted and only one dent done by me (awning pole oops)
  6. Hi all Looking for some help here in deciding what new to me van to get later this year.....The coachman is the favorite at the moment but they have a one piece aluminium side panels unlike others who are using GRP side. Having only had a van with aluminium side panels and had many a repair done this is slightly putting me off.
  7. Had my 2005 Bessacarr since 2007 its had its issues and had plenty of use but,I get a bit desponded each time I go viewing new vans. The price isn't so much an issue but the thought of the build quality or lack of it in some cases I'm sort of thinking it better the devil you know.
  8. Once you get the hang of it you'll be fine. The mistakes you made are what most have done, even after many years of caravanning.
  9. Can anyone enlighten me in what heavy duty corner steadies have over standard steadies. I've had vans with both types all single axles. I know the obvious answer would be for heavier vans but they do fit standard steadies to heavier vans than mine is using.
  10. I advertised my van last year which had damp around the front windows and basically I got sick of people wanting me to give it away for next to nothing so I bit the bullet and had it repaired £2.4k glad I did now. Sounds a lot but still cheaper than buying a new or newer van.
  11. I added some toilet fluid flush once many years ago...can't remember which one but it end up blocking the pump. Luckily just removing the punp and cleaning it fixed it. Never had a problem since just using fresh water now like I do at home. Chemicals just in the holding tank.
  12. That little door above the door where you empty the toilet is where you fill the flush tank. The wires your seeing will be for the pump.
  13. Couple of videos on YouTube in restoring dull GRP with just using floor polish. Wouldn't want to try it myself thou.
  14. To get my burner fitted in my area I had to buy a certain type burner that conformed to the clean air act..........everything smells even cooking food on an electric oven.
  15. Had a multi burner fitted 5 years ago after the boiler packed in over the winter, Had to wait for parts for over a week so it’s a back up and it’s looks nice. This Global warming I’m not so sure. Is it another hype to get us to pay mores taxes like when petrol emissions was creating a hole in the ozone layer and then we all jumped to diesel. Strange how this hole in the ozone has fixed its self.
