  1. I had the same problem on my new Sorento. I knew the fridge was cutting out because my rear view camera is wired into the same feed and it kept going off unless I ran with my headlights on to boost the charging! I took it back to the towbar company (PF Jones) and told them to sort it out. We agreed that they would fit an extra relay operated directly from the "power feed when running" side of the fuse box. No problem since. It was their problem and they fixed it at no extra charge.
  2. Yep! pay every time, free exit. It has been that for the last 5 Easters when we have been.
  3. Slightly off topic. Can you buy spare rubber tips for these pigtails? I have lost mine, I think after disconnecting, it stuck inside the cylinder and I didn't notice. As above, they are much easier to use than the spanner variety with a Safefill.
  4. Tanks seem to come and go. We have a 2013 Sterling Searcher which was the same as the equivalent Conqueror of the year, just different colours. That has all the internal tank and plumbing.
  5. Odd that such a light weight trailer is double axled though? You'll have to sneak over tonight with your night vision goggles on and read the rating plate on the trailer! Now you have started, we HAVE to know.....
  6. I would think that as LPG in gas form is heavier than air, any air trapped in the bottle would be on top of everything else and could be quickly blown out when the bottle is first used. If so, it would be better to first use it on either the gas hob or a BBQ where you can see the flame when it lights. Not too much different from when you first light a BBQ after changing a cylinder, all the air has to be blown through before it lights.
  7. If you like long sandy beaches, miles of cycleways and a nice clean site, try https://www.la-grainetiere.com/campsite-france-island-re.html In my opinion it is the best site on the Isle of Re. Lots of bars and eating in nearby, walkable La Flotte. E20 per night with ACSI
  8. They do push into the tyre quite heavily. They need to to get the grip. That is also why you shouldn't leave them on when parked up.
  9. I have two Purpleline movers. Mine are moved by a large lever that overcentres a cam. It is either on or off. That is the point of the setting distance of 20 mm. Mine sometimes gets confused and has to be turned off and on again to reset. Once you get used to that it is fine. Mine have been working fine for seven years now.
  10. I'm with Plod on this one. Especially as I'm sitting in Provence as I type.... Five weeks this time will cost around two grand but that includes a carry out for home consumption.
  11. True unless the van is upside down! However it must get a goodly dose sloshed on it.
  12. I too always put fluid in that way, far easier. I can't really see much problem with fluid on the seal as it is in permanent contact with fluid inside? However, if you splash fluid on the outside case, it will eventually find its way down to the floor and make a big mess inside the cabinet. The blue dye is very powerful stuff when neat.
  13. LE What about the credit card company if you have used one for the deposit?
  14. But ultimately you have the consumer regulations. Make sure you use your credit card for the deposit. NOT debit card!
  15. Our children (PC for kids), liked Connect 4. However, climbing mountains, caving, canoeing and stuff was preferable, even in the rain.
