    bailey GT60 460/4
  1. Try Apuljack engineering www. apuljackengineering. co. uk I contacted them about upgrading my unit in the van a few years ago
  2. Just discovered my wet locker door is leaking as well on my Bailey GT60, I was going to see if I can disassemble the door and rebuild it. If parts get damaged I'll replace them. it looks like poor workmanship on the door construction which has lead to this leak. I have cut away the lino under the tray to find the wood is stained black so ill more work to do other than getting the door to seal
  3. The car has 173k on the clock now and I have two estimates for the fix. One at £1000 and the other at £650. I love the car but it is getting tired inside as well and there's a few cosmetic bits that need tidying up. I'm going to get. Christmas out of the way and see what the new year brings
  4. My trusted tow car has developed a problem with the turbo, so no more trips away. I'm now in a dilemma, do I fix the turbo or trade it in for a newer car. The Passat has taken all over the country with one only breakdown when an intercooler hose went go up from Porlock Weir.
  5. I am thinking of investing in a shaped mattress topper for the little Bailey we own, can anyone recommend one. We have looked at each brand but don't know which one to go for. Marc
  6. I have just fitted a USB socket to the van. The one I fitted I got from here http://www. ebay. co. uk/itm/161398745068?_trksid=p2059210. m2749. l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I picked up the 12v feed for the status aerial booster, took a separate feed off for the socket with a inline fuse holder. It too all of 10 minutes to fit. I can take a photo tomorrow if anyone is interested
  7. I got one from Gary and it is easy to fit, worked a treat
  8. Thanks for the link wispman, I have found the prices for this year and I've asked for next years prices and deals. Chapmag, thanks for the link, we are not currently members of the CC but we'll have a look at joining
  9. Thanks for the tip, I've sent an email requesting prices etc
  10. We are thinking of travelling to the Isle of Wight next year and we were wondering if anyone has stopped there before and could recommend a campsite ideally an adult only one. Marc
  11. The reason behind this is all three of the 240v sockets are fitted to the offside of the van and I want the cool box in the awning so unless I fit an external socket on the near side or run an extension cable from one of the sockets. The nearest power source is the battery
  12. Oh my wife never let's me leave home without it's that my wallet by the way.
  13. Cheers, I'll still be using the hook up so the caravan battery charger should keep the battery topped up
  14. I will be fitting an inline fuse holder and a rated fuse.
  15. Does anyone see an issue running a 12v cool box straight off the battery terminals. The cool box is a dual 12/240v unit and I have a lead that has crocodile clips one end and a cigarette socket on the other. Marc
