  1. If your vans out of warranty and you're not using it why not wait and get it serviced at a later date.
  2. Can't help with the drive round Madrid, but a nice site in Galicia, Camping A' Vouga Louro/ Muros. Within easy drive of Santiago d' Compostela and beautiful position overlooking the beach. Page 612 ACSI book. Will be coming home via Madrid in June so will look at this thread with interest. Martyn
  3. I know John no offence taken bit like people from your neck of the woods and like to say they live in the cotswolds and neighbours of prince Charles. Ha ha from the Port and proud of it.
  4. My shower base was replaced under warranty pss plastics put a wedge shaped slope under the new shower tray and it helps a lot. The reason it was replaced was when the van was levelled the shower collected water away from the drain.
  5. Barb has a check list things to do inside the van before we travel this being on the list.
  6. Yes John I fitted the bolt shortly after I got the van. All my baskets move forward together so the bolt locks them all in position. It was the baskets that pushed the door open. Since fitting all has been sound
  7. I find that if the baskets are secure the door stays shut.
  8. I have received a new blind under warranty, but the repaired one still going strong. I now have a spare that will fit any of 3 windows.
  9. I don't drop the jockey wheel completely to the ground before winding to raise the van off the tow ball. The reason being when recoupling at a later time and maybe after using a mover you may not be able to go down far enough this then requiring lowering a leg to adjust the jockey wheel.
  10. I am really pleased that nobody seems to have had the same issue as that makes me feel more confident for the other blinds in my caravan. Just to say I managed to repair it and after 2 weeks usage all seems well. Picture shows back of blind after removal and before getting the spring back in the blind.
  11. Well my hot water and heating are on electric, are you not on site electrics. I would imagine mine would be high if the alde was on gas and I was caravaning in the winter, but I don't do Rally s and am on electrics. Martyn
  12. We use the oven and gas rings we have an electric ring wich we don't use abroad in case we blow the site electrics. Also I use the Cadac and when it got really hot and the fridge was struggling I put that on gas about 2/3 days. Hot water/ no heating required on electric Alde system. As you probably know Calor recently were recalling the Calor lite and they were hard to get so just in case it happens I'll keep my full one to one side and hopefully empty my other so exchange and have two for next year. Martyn.
  13. I agree also it would be nice to have something really useful and just £22, We had Two full Colorlites and use cooking a lot also Cadac after 10 weeks abroad still haven't emptied one. The full one will be put to one side now for next year's european trip. As I have a full Calor ( not lite ) to use. Off to Filey for 10 nights wonder if I can finish the one I've had 10 weeks out of. Martyn
  14. I don't want an argument I have always weighed my cylinder and I agree when the pressure in the cycling goes down the gauge will go from green to red. I have weighed cylinders ( 6kg ones )after the gauge has gone red. I have found more than 2 kg still left. It's great to look at these formulas if it makes you happy. I just deduct the tare weight from the weight of cylinder plus contents does me. Martyn
  15. Well you believe what you will perhaps you have some evidence. I have bought my Calor lite cylinders direct from Calor I was told this and have used the cylinders since first available in use it seems to confirm what I was told. Martyn
