  1. Is that the one that you wind down from inside the van?
  2. Thats a worry - do you know how to identify what the correct tyres are ?
  3. The stealer registers it for you - make sure your CRiS stuff comes through though.

    What are you going to power with your inverter. I retired my big one (2000w) for the hair drier as it will empty a 120AH battery in 2 uses. I have a 150W pure sine wave that I use for laptop and charging tooth brush/shaver.
  5. Yes you can buy the lamps from later vans and swap which is quite easy to do. I prefer my usbs out of the fag lighter so I can hide devices under cushions so not a plus for me
  6. Did they not grease up the worm screws when it was serviced?
  7. Has to be a nose weight issue
  8. Hi, I am a seasoned rallier and used to have croc clips to connect the battery to the panel in the old days when we arrived on site. The panel is now permanently mounted on the roof and charges the battery even in storage. If you intend doing more than 1 rally suggest you look at having your panel installed, we survive for weeks off grid without EHU even in the depths of winter. Hope you enjoy rallying, we had a slow start but it changed our life in a way.
  9. Yes multimeter time sound like the battery feed is broken somewhere - i havent got a diagram though
  10. I have a surplus of pigtails from all the vans I have bought but I stick with a lifetime steel braided thing I bought - great quality too - PM if you want the supplier
  11. Like you say each one to their own. However in France on holiday I have seen mains pressure limiters (which are quite crude TBTH) fail in the night as the pressure has built up to beyond what they can handle. Internal plumbing failed and wet lockers result. May be a one off but the pressure in my van it limited by the 12v pump and the whale limit switch.
  12. I have to agree with WispMan I would never have mains water connected to my van even if it is supposed to be pressure limited. Much prefer the ballcock idea in the aquaroll - no soggy bedding if anything goes wrong
  13. It could be that the 2 issues are unrelated. Get your meter out and see if you have 12v at the heater (under the black cover). If not trace back. Is it the Alde control panel that doesnt light ? - check volts to that also.
  14. Can you give us a bit more info / photos but @Mr Plodd is right the trim just clips on.
  15. Of course the van may have been service by an accredited workshop in which case it is unlikely that Bailey's records have been kept up to date. For a warranty claim you will need to produce receipts/records for any gaps in Bailey's on line system (I had to ). I wouldn't buy a van that new unless I had sight or written confirmation regarding the service (presume just 1 service?)
