  1. They are exactly same.
  2. What makes you think that I bought non Bailey taps? My new ones (2 years old now) were ordered from Baileys.
  3. Hi Dave, I did try what others have said about unscrewing the main body from the base and I just couldn't get it to move even after removing the taps from their positions. I had the base in a vice with wooden clamps and a wrench around the body and it just wouldn't move. I gave up and just bought 2 new taps.
  4. Hi, Dave, my sink had 3 screws holding it in the unit with little plastic covers over them, screwed through the upper inside of the sink. With these taken out the sink lifted up and my corrugated drain pipe just pulled out plastic underside of the plug hole, this had a 90* lug that the corrugated pipe pushed onto. The whole job is doable but you are working in a confined space and I do have small hands and I found it quite constricting. The good thing for me was that the new taps came with longer pigtails and these went back easier than trying to use the older shorter ones. Also when you put the jubilee clips back on you can get to the screw heads easier. Hope this helps.
  5. I had the same problem as you Dave. It was 2 years ago now and I solved it by replacing both my taps (Kitchen & Bathroom) I tried everything but just could not solve the problem. It's not a job I would like to repeat anytime soon. My taps were 10 years old and were both seeping around the base as yours. Have a read of my post at the time. Best of luck and if I can help with anything just ask. Doosan (David)
  6. I looked into this early on in the year and I must of read their terms wrong, it said to add a caravan was £178 extra each way. Could you show me the link for what you have found out, please? Doosan
  7. You have to think very carefully about what you do here, THIS company can repair windows that have become delaminated but will not touch a window that has been tried to be repaired. I had one of my small front windows repaid by EECO and can recommend them. I think it cost me about £115 to be reaired but that is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. Second hand windows are very rare to find, I know I did try. Bonne Chance
  8. I do mine this way at the beginning of the season. While it cleans all the pipes it also descales the hot water tank.
  9. Don't worry Wunny, It's not your van it's the condition of the roads here in Kent. I live in Kent and our roads here must be the worst in Britain.
  10. I always understood that the 10 Ltr hot water tank kept the water at 70c so that you mixed it with the cold water to obtain the right temperature to suit you and then by that saving the hot water that has been heated. What that means to us is that we both can have a shower one after the other and still have enough hot water, if the temperature was lower say 45c then one of us would use all the hot water so the next person would have to wait for the tank to reheat the cold water that has replaced the hot. Even indoors if showering the grandchildren we always supervise them. Most campsites that I have been on have yellow stickers next to the hot tap with a warning.
  11. The code doesn't work (for me) when I book towing a caravan, but if I book just the car (solo) it goes through fine.
  12. I can recommend a Bailey Pageant, I have the Campagne that is a 4 berth. 2 of the beds are pulled out bunk beds and my son, who is 51 and his wife have slept on them with no problems. The reason I say the Pageant range is that in my honest opinion these were the last of the dry vans that Bailey produced. Mine was 12 years old this year and doesn't have any damp. You should be able to pick one up for about £8000 probably with a mover and an awning thrown in bought privately.
  13. The UCI has announced today, the 2011 Vuelta a Espana champion Juan Jose Cobo has been found guilty of an anti-doping violation. this could see Froome, who finished second in the race, retrospectively awarded the victory.
  14. They are saying that he will need months of special care and rehabilitation and will take all his stamina and courage to get back to anything like normal. Yes John19, he was on a TT bike at the time.
  15. Chris Froome had been conducting a reconnaissance of the fourth stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné, when, while blowing his nose, a gust of wind caught him out and he crashed into a wall. He has sustained critical injuries and will be out of racing for the rest of the season. Wishing him a speedy recovery and hope to see him up and racing as soon as possible. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/jun/12/chris-froome-doubt-tour-de-france-crash-criterium-hospital-injured
