No surprise to me we had a avante 574 all of the faults you have suffered the last straw was waking up in the.night with water dripping on to my bed through the roof light thank god that we had a small loan through black horse who were great recouped nearly all of our money after two years of grief.

  5. Hi Dee Tee maybe it has something to do with the communication between devices as the iPhone downloads through Bluetooth so maybe a hard wire download works in a different way? Chris
  6. Hi Stevan I am not sure but believe the camper/caravan version is designed to drive to sites pre loaded into is memory so goes to a site address, maybe I will plan a route wth narrow road or height restrictions and see what happens ? chris
  7. hi Dee Tee I do not know if it works with a pc but I have the same tom tom 6200 with wifi updating as yourself I had downloaded it to my apple phone but hardly used it,but playing around with it I discovered the settings for size of vehicles planned a route to get me to Harwich ferry port and downloaded to to tom tom as car with caravan so a good tool it can take me on a hgv type route, as I never trust these things completely if heading to a site I will input the post code and drive as far I can on decent roads then re plan nearby with road map or site instructions for the final few miles Chris

  18. Black horse were fantastic when trying to get my money back for my explorer heap of junk? Can not speak highly enough of them.
  19. We were there early in June not really a problem as said the road works are a bit of a pain but we came in via the motorway and left via bath no real problems on the way in follow signs for ss Great Britain and look for the club site on the left just past the entrance to the cottage pub.

  20. Yes mine leaked through the hinge bar I traced it by removing the stay arm raised the windows as high as possible then on inspection I noticed water track marks appearing from behind the the hinge bar then noticed the majority of the screws holding the hinge bar were loose so tightened then all and ran a bead of sealant across the top of the bar eighteen months on so far no leaks but will check the screws again before the end of summer. Chris
  21. When we visited the 2013 caravan show I noticed a crack in the locker door but I still went ahead and purchased a explorer van making a mental note not to apply any undue force on it when closing it all went well for eight months then a loud crack and it split about three inches in from the lhs of the hinge bar and back across to to the lhs this was replaced under warranty but a few months on and the van was returned to black horse finance as the thing began to fall apart such a shame four years on and they still fail you would think that they may have learned a lesson but no still think the end user will grin and bear it take dealer to court this is a design fault not a fault of the end user Chris
