  1. Yes it is. The three lights are as follows and only refer to the gas heating mode, not the electric mode Green,everything working. Amber: Low 12v supply, unit will not work. Red: Burner failure.
  2. No its not. The most likely fault with the Nord system is a failed relay, which is why I said contact the experts in this field !
  3. As the person who posted I would like to settle some misconceptions. First I did not say that the OP was at fault , I said that many people do not research what they are buying , and there is a wealth of information on all makes of vans on the internet from which one can make an informed decision as to buy or not. I do not need to " take a long hard look at themselves." I work on all makes of vans and stand by my comments, and Lunar in particular are well known for leaks, some from manufacturing defects, some from shoddy workmanship. The whole point of the topic
  4. Your van is almost certainly using the Nordelettronica power distribution system which is very well known to be problematic (so much so it bankrupted the company). Your best bet is ring Apuljack Engineering and speak to Paul or one of his colleagues who are expert in dealing with these systems. Best to do it whilst in the van as they will Talk you through certain checks and they will pinpoint the problem. They will also repair to better than new any faulty parts after you send them to them and they have a very fast turnaround. http://www.apuljackengineering.co.uk/
  5. If the boundary is clearly shown on the Land Registry then you have every right to insist that the neighbour does not encroach on your land. The problem may arise that having parked as such for a period of time they think they have the right to continue and then the trouble may start. You would need to insist that the Solicitor acting for you in the purchase makes it abundantly clear to the neighbour that they respect your boundary and not to park any vehicle on your land or driveway.
  6. The information on what is your exact window is the Roxite number which is on a small square or oval sticker on the window, usually top left, or top right. Copy that info and use that for identification purposes.
  7. The problem is that people new to buying caravans really do not know what to look for, and they buy with their heart, not their head, and never do enough research about the model they are looking at. It is a case of "It looks nice" so it must be good ,,,,,,,,,wrong !!!! If you had researched Lunar you would have found that they have a very apt name in the caravan repair world , known as Leaky Lunars, with good reason !!!!
  8. You can speculate about what "may " happen to it after it leaves you, but no dealer would touch it and risk the amount of money needed to bring it to saleable condition given the tighter Consumer Rights in force now. Maybe, but your van is not in good condition, it is damaged, leaking and needs a lot of work and money to put right. Time to wake up and smell the coffee !!!
  9. So, after the initial post it now transpires that there is even more damage to the front panel and that the insides need stripping out and replacing after fixing any leaks But your van is NOT in good condition !!!!!
  10. That is a matter of conjecture. You said earlier that " we found a large crack in rear of roof that was letting a large amount of water ingress in" so the situation is that there is most likely water damage internally that would require a lot of money to put right. Also, at 4 plus years old all the internal equipment such as water heater, fridge, space heater, etc etc are all out of warranty, so no real commercial value now. I know it is hard to take in as the owner, but from a business stance that is the way they will look at it.
  11. As the repair is not financially viable they are saying , basically, you have a scrap van and have probably based their offer on the scrap value. You have had 4 years use of the van, despite any problems, so what you have paid and what it is worth now are miles apart, not in your favour sadly.
  12. As the van is still under warranty it is a job for the dealer.
  13. The "problem" as you put it is that caravans are not Type Approved for that kind of regulator, therefore it is not possible to change, unless YOU want to foot the bill for a new Type Approval. Taking your second paragraph, just because an appliance has various settings that does not mean that they are all available for every situation that the appliance is located in.
  14. Taken from the current Bailey handbook for the Alicanto: Page 14. 11. Gas cylinders are correctly positioned, secured and turned off, and the gas box is shut and locked.
  15. You will be extremely lucky to find an exact wallboard match with a van now 17 years old.
