  1. I've had the same Rhyno mover on a couple of my caravans covering a period of nine years and have never had a problem.
  2. Yes I mean low wattage, four grandchildren charging round!
  3. My son is looking for a low voltage heater and I wondered if anyone has any experience of them. He may go for the one that Aldi have for sale though there are a few at more or less the same price at my local caravan accessories shop. He's not looking for anything that throws out vast quantities of heat just something that will take the chill off in an evening. His caravan heater blasts out lots of heat but the design sends the heat under the bed runnerswhich soften and bend. He has had to relace them twice now so doesn't want to replace them a third time.
  4. Anybody used one of those low voltage heaters. Are they any good?
  5. Well my nearside Millenco mirror is some where on the M6 as it some how worked loose and dropped off yesterday. Checked it twice before setting off.
  6. A new tap would have been £83, mobile egineer charged me £25 for his time and the new cassette.
  7. It has taken a while but eventually got the tap sorted out. Watched videos, tried to follow instructions posted on line but could not remove the cassette on the in side of the tap. In the end my mobile service anengineer came to service the caravan and I asked him to have a go with it. He took the complete tap home with him by detaching it from the wash basin. He brought it back the other day repaired and pointed out a minute screw at the back of the tap, close to the base, with this removed the tap came to pieces and the faulty cassette could be replaced.
  8. As a number of people have already said go to a local club. They will have all the gear you need, let you try a suitable canoe or kayak and give you some basic training. Then you can take it further if you enjoy it.
  9. The tap in the shower room sink has stopped working. I'm not very technically minded so my description of the problem may not be very clear. The tap is one of those that is for hot and cold water. You lift it up to turn the tap on, however when I lift the tap now there is no risistance and it just drops down, will not stay up on its own. No water comes out. All other taps are working. Is there anything I can do or do I need a new tap? Thanks for any help in advance
  10. It became obvious to me that I am going to go over the estimated mileage I gave at the time of taking out my insurance. It was based on previous yearly mileage, but due to various reasons I have done a greater mileage this year. On the insurance policy it states "Estimated mileage 14000 ." I asked the insurance company for their definition of estimated but they couldn't give one. All they would say was that if I go over the 14000 and had to make a claim it may be refused. I was able to add another 3000 miles for no extra premium but had to pay the £25 admin fee. I would have thought that an estimate is a guess and there would be some flexibility of say a couple of thousand on an estimated 14000, however I'm not prepared to take the chance with insurance companies.
  11. Starting off in the 60's with a Bukta Wanderlust and finally finishing off with a Cabanon Frame tent. We decided on the way back from France in 1986 that we needed a camping trailer. On getting back home and giving it some thought we decided that if we were pulling a trailer it might has well be a caravan. We found an end of season brand new Alpine sprite going cheap. No electric, no loo, no fridge but a great little caravan. We eventually did have a fridge fitted and had that van for seven years. We are now on our fifth caravan. My son has just bought his first caravan after a number of years in tents and loves it.
  12. We had a one night stop at the site at St Mere Eglise. Nice site, short walk to the centre of the town and the excellent museum. Utah Beach is about 15 minutes away and the ferry port, at Cherbourg, about 30 minutes.
  13. Thanks for rep[ies, it seems there are still some buffets to try.
