  1. Had ours insured with the C & C Club, (brand new, alarm, tracker, wheel clamp and hitch lock, stored in a CASSOA silver site). The following year it went up by about £120 despite no claims. I checked on comparison sites and found a quote equal to the previous years quote. I phoned the C & C Club and told them that I wouldn't be renewing, they asked for my new quote and promptly matched it on the spot rather than "lose my custom". I do it every year with car, caravan and home insurance.
  2. On our Swift, (2017 Sprite Major), every time we disconnect the mains feed, the heating/hot water RCD trips. Everything else works, just check your RCDs are in the ON position.
  3. We had a 2012(?) Swift, bought brand new. ALL these high level strip lights were replaced by Swift, (I think they had a faulty batch). They were sent to me and it was my decision if I did them myself or took them to the dealer to have it done. I did them myself in a quiet afternoon. It might be worthwhile contacting Swift directly and asking the question. I've always found them very helpful.
  4. We have a factory installed 100w panel installed on our Sprite Major (2017). It's kept the battery charged for the last 18months or so since we've had it, even with a tracker on permanently. It also keeps the battery charged enough to use the caravan mover when we need it. (P.S. It hasn't been used much on EHU this season due to my heart attack and subsequent bypass operation.)
  5. Maybe a photo of the problem would help?
  6. Alko hitchlock, 30 seconds to fit. Nemesis Ultra wheel lock 30 seconds. Insurance requirements complied with. If I don't fit them, they're only rattling around in the back of the car. (I would have bought the Alko wheel lozenge, (receiver fitted), but the lozenge was £250 and it had a 3 month waiting list and the Nemesis was half the price plus the dealer fitted the receiver during the pre sale inspection.)
  7. Trying to get the British government to push ANY legislation through "in record time" is doomed to failure I'm afraid.
  8. It would help if you told us what make, model and year of caravan you have. Then anybody who has or has had one can help you.
  9. One more thing, ALWAYS make sure that the cap is firmly on the peppercorns!! Maybe not high up the list but we were still finding the odd peppercorn when we changed the caravan 3 years after "the event"!!
  10. Ah, the Practica! Excellent solid camera. As one photo reviewer said, "The ideal camera. You can take it to a wedding, photograph the bride. Photograph the reception and when it gets rowdy, use it as a club to defend yourself and then photograph the ambulance when it takes away the injured revellers." I had two and learned a huge amount about the basics of photography.
  11. Thanks for the update. Glad you got it sorted.
  12. Can you unplug the caravan microwave and take it home, plug it in there and see if it trips the circuit breaker at home. That way, at least you'll identify the microwave as the faulty item.
  13. For goodness' sake people! Surely ANYBODY who has a need to tell anybody about something as serious as a heart condition will find out the relevant information from the insurers/DVLA/medical authorities, and not simply ignore it because "somebody on a website that I use said it would be OK"...........would they? Surely the OP, (Tintaglia), was just asking for our (elderly) experiences of medical conditions. Lets not start zimmer frame wars.
  14. Sound like a loose connection. The old 7 pin plugs were prone to loose/dirty connections, but the new 13 pin plugs are very much better. As Bolingbroke has suggested, check the tightness of the screw connections.
