  1. Ah Torrox not long now!! kot pigs
  2. I was in front of the of the caravan top left in the picture last February and had to reverse back far enough to leave the ship down the ramp on the right side of the picture. This is normal loading for the Baie de seine, car and caravan had been washed before I got to it (no salt) and the reverse is straight so no problem kot pigs ps to reverse a two wheel trailer. Start from straight and with one hand holding the steering wheel at the BOTTOM move your hand left or right the way you want the trailer to go simples Remember there is no shame in moving forward to straighten up and continue on to where you need to be
  3. 246000 WOW!!! all of us must be awful drivers kot pigs
  4. Sir I stand corrected!!! kot pigs
  5. I have had over the years the less expensive movers, and I have had the more expensive ones. They all move the caravan so pay your money and take your choice. kot pigs
  6. Along with a set of car keys it cost almost £400 to replace, and then she found them kot pigs

    4th service

    Had the vans 4th service today (2nd since I have owned it) happy days a clean bill of health, damp report is like a carbon copy of last year set up now for another year. kot pigs
  8. I had the same problem re getting the awning flush to the caravan. The way I found round this is when siting the caravan was to use a level block to raise the near side of the van so the van was leaning just a small amount (not enough to notice when in the van) away from the awning this enabled the sides of the awning to meet the caravan . kot pigs
  9. £60 an hour if its a one man band does seem a little steep. If however it is with a dealer with a work shop that seems a little on the low side as the overheads have to be paid for, nowadays £95 to £110 is not uncommon for work on a car at a dealership. kot pigs
  10. Not the cheapest but very good service should you need to claim. Try the CMC kot pigs
  11. Left my phone on a seat on the sea front on the costa del sol last year. I did not realise that I had lost it, so asked swmbo to ring my phone so I could hear it ring, imagine my suprise when spannish plod answered it. kot pigs
  12. Keith your not wrong there, the A11 between Attlebrough and Norwich is like a tank proving ground shakes the car so much that at anything over 55mph its dam uncomfortable kot pigs
  13. They are getting to be hard to find, as when they get damaged calor will not refill them so it is an ever smaller number on the market. kot pigs
  14. At circa £27 calor lite would be circa £4.50 per kg. I paid £28 last week £4.66 per kg, That would make flogas gaslite @£3,80 per kg a bit more attractive if you can fit the 10kg cylinder in your locker. The price of the cylinder ( rental!! ) is quite large as it seems to be a purchase not rental but they can be found on the bay of E or facebook market place as very reasonable costs. kot pigs
  15. At the risk of fred drift. what price are people being charged for a 6kg calor lite refill ? kot pigs
  16. An air bed on top of the cushions works for us when we have the grandchildren with us. kot pigs
  17. Hi Bunce Managed to get to Thetford today and swaped my two calorlites, alongside my cespa cylinder so will now be ok until I return from my winter trip to Spain. In the mean time I have aquired a bplite cylinder and I also have the connector so which ever way Calor chooses to go I think I am covered for the time being. Thanks for the Thetford tip, they only have one left now. kot pigs
  18. Whenever I hear of a new problem in the world we now live in, some sort of expert come's up with an answer that will solve the issue. When I listen to this so called expert I always ask myself who paid for that expert's research and what is his/her backer's real reason. so are we being conned I don't know but I think we are not being told the complete picture and someone WILL make a pile of money. kot pigs

    FUSE ??

    DACS Thank you for the info. After a visit to you tube I was able to get access to the pump, you were quite right the pump had indeed seized, I was able to move the impeller with a small screw driver which has sorted the problem. kot pigs
  20. just a longer pigtail fed in through the bottom gas vent in the front locker but I would imagine that even that might be considered dangerous kot pigs

    FUSE ??

    I have a Thetford c262 cwe toilet fitted to my swift major 4fb. But the flush is not working I suspect a fuse might have blown, (first thing to check) I have been unable to find a fuse that I was told is in the waste holding tank locker, I am trying to sort this week as away next week. If anyone can point me in the right direction please kot pigs
  22. If you paid cash on collection then you do have a problem, and the only way to get redress is directly from the seller. However if you paid with paypal (always the best way from ebay) open a dispute with paypal and they will sort it, as has been said paypal favours the buyer best of luck kot pigs
  23. Hi Bunce can you tell me who has calor lite in norfolk as I have been trying to find a couple thanks kot pigs
  24. thanks for the info jampot that is a big piece of the puzzle kot pigs
  25. I have two Calor Lite cylinders that I have been trying to replace without any luck at all. So the news from LE . that Calor might not replace lite cylinder seems to have forced my hand, it looks like I will return the cylinders get my £7.50 each and head over to Flogas. I am still debating safe fill but they look to be a heavy cylinder, as they seem built to withstand a lot of handling much the same as an ordinary 6kg Calor kot pigs
