  1. Had three Magnums and Minor. The poles did dent/ding our previous two aluminium sided caravans but in each case it was down to me being a clumsy git, none were caused by adverse weather conditions.
  2. Out of interest, where around each widow did they get sealed?
  3. Ours does not leak but I have my suspicious that it had been 'seen to' in some way before it was sold to us. It was new in stock but there was some of the black sealer on the white GRP at the top where it shouldn't have been. The decals which should have been on it on it were missing and the sunroof blind at the top where it should have been fixed was adrift. All pointing to one thing to me.
  4. Any chance it's in demo mode, mine was and got right on my pip until I changed it. Wasn't one of these models but functioned the same.
  5. Already covered here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-rules-for-towing-a-trailer-or-caravan-with-a-car-from-autumn-2021 https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/community/topic/154472-towing-test-to-end/?do=findComment&comment=1946147
  6. My Blackvue dashcam can take up to 30 seconds at times to boot up and is only recording with ignition on. In a recent collision where someone reversed into the side of me, my insurer asked for the footage, they knew I had the cam. I had just fired the car up and started to move when the collision occurred but it had not completed its boot up and when I played it back the impact details were missing. Fortunately the third party admitted liability from start to finish of the claim so all worked out well. Always try and wait for it to complete its start up sequence now before moving off.
  7. Looked for one of these a while back, generally unavailable now I think.
  8. If UK caravan manufacturers were to diversify into boat manufacturer, our inland waterways would soon grind to a halt with sunken boats having failed due to leaks.

    Same here over the years as GaryB1969 above. Messing with the impellers only gave temporary results.
  10. I bought an extra bolt for our twin axle to give other position possibilities then put the AL-KO on which ever opposite side second axle suits the Wraith position. I made one mistake by placing the Wraith bar very close to the chassis underside then wound up the jockey to get roof water to shed whilst in storage. Couldn't get it off when I went to it next time then I realised that winding the jockey had jammed the bar underneath the chassis until I lowered it again.
  11. This year we went with the CMC Insurance ('Cover' to the hair splitters) and part of their terms are that whilst in storage, CaSSOA gold, it must have two AL-KO's fitted. When sited during touring one AL-KO is acceptable but with an alternative lock fitted to the second axle, for this purpose I chose a Milenco Wraith. I also purchased a twin Lock 'n' Level but as we only really use level sites it only gets used back at the storage compound. More of a faff to use than a bottle or trolley jack but having a 4WD mover fitted, access to a suitable lift point is not practical and I did have one twin axle fall off a bottle jack a few years back which was unnerving
  12. When previously shopping around seem to remember a couple of questions along the lines of 'how many years no claims' and 'had any claims in the last x years regardless of blame'. My mates wife reversed out of our drive 4 years back into the side of a parked car which wrote it off (bent its door pillar badly) with not too much damage to hers. Didn't notice much of a premium hike on renewal apparently, protected NCD.

    So am I evil!

  14. Purely out of interest, with a flashing green light rather than tow the caravan to eliminate it, just pull the hand brake on and off and if all OK solid green will then display.
  15. I use an AT SensoTec gauge with my TA, digital, accurate and no compression due to it being a load cell.
