  1. Guess you never use non-electric sites then?
  2. Don't know if it is true but I was told that a load of calor gas containers (from China !! why ??? ) got held up coming through Suez.
  3. Also, one of my Milenco towing mirrors fell off whilst towing on the motorway when a car in the middle lane came too close to me as it was moving over to allow an ambulance to pass him, clipping my mirror with his. Thankfully I always secure them with a cable tie to act as a lanyard incase this happens, Good idea. I must try and remember to do that.
  4. As stated on another post - the Caravan Bays at Donnington on the M1 currently have four European trucks (tractor units) parked in them and it looks as though they have been there ages presumably with the agreement of the services owners.
  5. On the subject of caravans parking in the trucking areas at motorway services it seems far more common to me to see trucks in the designated caravan slots (when they are nearer the services than the trucking area.). Donnington services on the M1 actually has four trucks (tractor units) from europe parked in the caravan slots, they look as though they have been there for ages.
  6. I'm with Scarab. I could live with a system where I'm allowed to book just three weekend (Friday to Sunday/Monday) slots and three "long stays" on a rolling basis.
  7. On two occasions I have had the jockey wheel drop whilst in transit. The first time I thought I probably hadn't tightened it enough so thereafter I made absolutely sure it was really tight. Then it happened again! Since then I now additionally also secure it above the bodywork of the A frame with with a large jubilee clip which is too large to drop through the hole.
  8. plus 3 for power touch evolution.
  9. For stays of less than 4 nights we don't usually bother with an awning. For long stays we have an Isabella Magum. For stays between 4 nights and a week I've just bought a Outdoor Revolution Porchlite 200 Lightweight Awning (version with poles) Experimented with it to see how it goes up, it's a bit fiddly but I think it is going to work. Time will tell.
  10. Was thinking of getting away on the 12th. All caravan systems tested in readiness. Weather forecast for that week not looking all that good, lots of rain forecast. Think we might stay home a bit longer.
  11. Once covid restrictions are done with you could move around various camp sites and CL/CS s. That way you get your electric and waste issues resolved.
  12. Has anyone used AutoValetDirect or any other caravan valeting service (ideally in Gloucestershire/south west)
  13. You're quite right regarding the issue of warranty extension. I was looking more at the issue of the OP not being able to get a service done.
  14. From the OPs post I assume he has tried the place he bought it and can't get a slot. Perhaps a mobile engineer would be the answer ?
  15. If the dealership is open then I would go ahead. The government wants businesses to continue wherever possible.
