    pick up 4x4

    yes it is in the swift manual as I was informed by the assessor and I did check it but probably like most of us I had not bothered to read it unless really necessary like something going wrong sorry to be bearer of bad news but thought other pick up users should know about this why should the insurance companies always win we pay enough as it is . regards Martin

    pick up 4x4

    our caravan has interior damage ie wardrobe coming away from wall 2008 bessacarr cameo 625 anyway put insurance claim in for pothole damage and received letter saying assesor would be in touch well the day arrived 1st thing he said was can I have a look at towball we tow with a 2009 Nissan Navara pick up strange I thought damage is inside the van well he looked and said you do not have a towing assistor to which I replied what the hell is that and was told made by Dixon bate called a shock link anyway the claim has been refused well this is where it gets interesting phoned Dixon bate to be told not made since 2014 wqs £650 approx WOW so investigated further and found a company called Peak dynamics who do a similar part called flexi tow £221 read a review and the guy said fantastic piece of kit phoned the company asked a few questions when asked what could happen if not fitted was told eventually chassis would crack so here is the question anybody got one of these fitted and what were there thoughts on it please . SO BEWARE PICK UP DRIVERS AS PICK UP IS CLASSED AS COMMERCIAL VEHICLE AND IN THE SWIFT HANDBOOK IT SAYS NOT TO BE TOWED BY COMMERCIAL VEHICLE . The assessor told me nobody ever tells you this when you by your caravan so watch out fellow pick up drivers regards Martin

    you could try disconnecting and reconnecting battery worked for us and not a penny spent.
  10. Hi have been using Garmin sat navs for quite a number of years and am at the moment using camper760 lmt-d had this one for approx. 3 years have had no problems at all get free updates and was originally recommended to Garmin by a person in Halfords who I had never met before who said most pilots used those so thought to myself if its used by pilots must be good so the rest is history . Hope this helps regards Martin
  11. Have a look at the Garmin range they do one for caravans (camper) which you put all the details in car and caravan length ,height width etc we bought ours from Aldi might be worth having a look at there website as they are doing caravan items from 11/04/2019 Martin
  12. we have this one was £56.oo approx. with cc discount have found it a very good piece of kit the manufacturer is Kartt jockey wheels advertised in the cc magazine.
  13. Hi and welcome I would suggest that you remove the battery take it home and charge it up regards Martin
  14. HI whereabouts did you purchase the accessories from and what was the price pls. thanks Martin
  15. there's never a policeman about when you need one it's also quite amazing how many people don't use mirrors would have thought that could make your insurance void ?
