  1. I assume Mr Plodd does not rally. I rally all year round and have needed AWD many times to get my van on and off the rally field. I have also towed many other vans and motor homes, motor homes do not like damp grass. My Sport is full time 4WD and it is interesting to have the transmission display and see the diffs switching between their limited slip functions even on the road. Ian
  2. You could probably remove the socket and fit a waterproof 12 v socket like a cigar lighter, look on eBay under motorcycle sockets. I f you are going to replace the whole fitting have a look on CAK Tanks website, they do all sorts of fittings. Ian
  3. The socket at the top was to power a pump which you dropped into your water container to fill your internal tank, iirc it had power on all the time. Ian
  4. Another 4 to add on Linwater site for the Forth & Clyde centre AGM but not a Rally. My total 16. Forum total 428. Ian
  5. The evolution has two extra wires to each motor to control the engagement motors. Ian
  6. 4 nights at CMC Lochside, Forfar. My total 12. Forum total 403. Ian
  7. 2 nights at a Fife & Tayside Rally at Dovecot caravan park near Laurencekirk. My total 8. Forum total 373. Ian
  8. I have had a 8.2 m van for over 6 years and not had any problems. Stonehaven site used to be 8m but I phoned them and they said no problem. Speaking to a warden on another CMC site he said some are limited because of tight corners to access pitches even though the pitches are big enough but he went on to say if I phoned him he would be able to tell me if I could get in or not. Ian
  9. I had a 2013 and liked it so much I had a 2014 on order when they went under. Would probably still have had it today if I had got it. Ian
  10. The Eterniti vans all had at least 6ft6 headroom and a king size bed but they are 2013/14 and used ones are selling for a lot of money. Ian
  11. My last three cars have all had dynamic suspension and it is active in all modes. The 2010 Vogue had normal and sports settings but I never towed in Sports, when I had a wiring problem and the dynamics were not working it was a very noticeable choppy ride. My Velar and Sport have the latest all singing and dancing modes but apart from having a play with the settings I tend to leave it in auto. The later cars are more stable than the Vogue was, and it was pretty good, even though they are lighter. Ian
  12. 3 nights at the Fife and Tayside rally at the Clachan club site. My total 6. Forum total 360. Ian
  13. Friend on Rally with me had the same in their Swift and another in their Coachman.
  14. I had a look on the VA site and couldn’t find anything there. One of the brochures has a small picture of the control panel but I can’t make out any details and when I scan it and blow it up it is too blurred. Hopefully somebody on here will be able to photograph theirs for you. I am sure it was called the microprocessor control panel and I could not find the repair guys details. Ian
  15. When I had VMs there was somebody who specialised in repairing these control panels. I think I still have some VM brochures which will have pictures. I am still a VA member so will have a look on their website. Ian
