  1. I can assure you that they would have changed that oil and filter if you had actually paid for it. Glad that you have a good warranty, but shame on the dealer cutting costs.
  2. Yes it does especially a first service where the filter and drain plugs pick up any loose filings in the engine. I would insist they do it, was it a pre paid or free service?
  3. You have a great towcar and as long as you pack and drive sensibly you have no need to worry. Make that your cars electrics are connected to enable a caravan/ trailer and that will work seamlessly with your ATC.
  4. To reply to the original poster, let the gearbox rather than your throttle do all the work. You will find if you pull off on a light throttle it will change up nicely using the torque without needing extra fuel. You need to get a few miles under your belt for best performance, i would not personally use sport as the torque you need is at low revs so less need for higher revs.
  5. just to finalize my question, thanks to all for some very helpful comments. I have bought a van, my wife fell in love with it i liked it. I bought it as i cant fault it no damp anywhere and great VFM. Its a near new Lunar CK not my much loved Coachman but until they make one i like with no rubbish bed slats, bigger sunroof then this will do nicely. I have full damp warranty by the way from the dealer. Brave or foolish time will tell?
  6. Hi i have bitten the bullet and purchased an 2018 Lunar and i wish to install a solar panel. Has anyone done this on the CK and has any advice on where the best place to fit and connections to the main control unit please?
  7. Looked at one yesterday, silver curtains plain cream seating (very poor quality see Kiaboys comments). Toilet and cooker now Thetford cream carpet. Upgrade available to seating fabric £250. Looked at both of these vans yesterday and i can see why you choose the Elddis much more VFM.
  8. Thank you guys so much for your helpful replies which i have taken on board. Any further comments will always help and i now feel more confident about making the right choice of new van. I would like to know more about the Dometic ovens and toilets if anyone can enlighten me. I have read that the ovens dont work well, something to do with temperatures i believe?
  9. I think that you will find that there is a short in the 12v system, maybe water getting in but definitely a problem that needs resolving. Disconnect the solar panel if you have one , then if its not that the fridge 12v supply.
  10. I have a 2012 vip coachman and despite initial grumbles and bits needing fixing i have found the van to be very good quality, reliable and well built to last. So 8 years old soon we thought we should look for a newer one. So far i have found to my dismay the pull out bed has been replaced with just plain bits of wood that used to be used 20 plus years ago in low end vans, dodgy sunroof blinds and front blind wont close upwards. The clothes drawers in the bathroom are so small you cant get much in them and the nearside wet locker is now a hole into the van under the bed! I can seem to find a review that is not biased in some way and it feels to me that whilst it looks good, quality of materials used is well below what you would expect for a 25k van. What i would like to do is hear from anyone who has an 18, 19, 20, vip what their views on these vans to help me decide if i should buy another coachman? Thanks in advance.
  11. i think that it is politically driven, i found the hassle not worth it when trying to establish a garage that would allow a refill. Your system looks fine but is more risky than connecting straight to the bottle in theory as a connection could fail. Worlds gone mad!
  12. can you send me your e mail address, i have photo of all the pages and are to big for this site. (Email address removed) Mod edit: Just a reminder to not use email addresses in this open forum. Use the PM system.
  13. Thank you for the offer but I have now found my originals and I am all up and running again! If anyone needs a copy let me know.
  14. i think that you will find that any potential new owner will honour warranties as they will negotiate a lower price to include this. If they did not honour them then they will effectively be throwing their money away buying the company as sales will plummet due to a lack of confidence by the consumer.
  15. Its very sad to see such a well respected brand in trouble. But surely these manufactures did not expect this bubble to last forever, where's the forecasting and forward planning? Look at the prices now, the same price as a decent new car, it could not go on forever. Priced themselves out of business along with many more no doubt, this is probably not the last one to go to the wall.
