  1. I had a 2012 manual for 5 yrs., and it gave great service without even a hiccup. It had self levelling suspension, which was a known problem on some at around that age, so I changed it to a 2015 (in 2017) auto (standard suspension). Must admit, I haven't noticed any difference in the ride, and the car dips only very slightly in the rear with the Challenger hooked on. The auto is definitely a much more relaxing drive, solo or towing, and my preference would most definitely be auto. Either way, it's a really good tow car.
  2. Are you sure it's the circuit board, and not just the pump that has seized? The circuit board is very easy to change - just a matter of peeling back (carefully), the panel with the push-button on it and lifting the board out. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thetford-SC250-Cassette-Toilet-Control-Panel-SN-50709/272818987992?epid=3010165699&hash=item3f854763d8:g:-5EAAOSwImRYWmoW See also
  3. The thread requires a 20mm tap/2.5mm pitch, and as fred mentioned, Al-ko will lend you one. See http://www.al-ko.co.uk/pages_faqs/lock-maintenance.html
  4. That's good to know beejay, thank you.
  5. Not according to LV,s Policy Documents which state, quote; UK & European Assist ✓ The benefits of UK Recovery & Home Assist ✓ Added cover for Europe including: ✓ Help at the roadside ✓ Recovery to a local garage within 10 miles (including attached caravans & trailers) ✓ If your vehicle can’t be repaired by the end of the working day you can chose either a hire car, alternative transport or overnight accommodation (please refer to the Breakdown Policy Document for further details) ✓ If it’s not possible to repair your vehicle in time for your return to the UK we’ll pay for it to be transported home along with you, your passengers and your luggage. Edit; Perhaps that just means that they wouldn't leave the caravan on the side of the road!
  6. It's now £134, but doesn't cover/recover a caravan unless it is attached to the car at time of breakdown - otherwise, a good policy.
  7. I think it was just a separate issue he was referring to tictag.
  8. Unfortunately, it's going to cost quite a lot of money to take it down to Somerset, and then to recover it after repair. One other possibility which might be worth looking into would be to part exchange it as is, making the dealer aware of the major faults. I traded one in to LPC, Bangor,(NI), which had a waranty issue, a few years ago, and they were very accommodating.
  9. I have the same problem at home also, and ruined both tyres on my last 'van as a consequence. They both became mis-shaped, and as a result, I now use a ramp to level the 'van up.
