  1. The big question is what is this "Modification" is it a taboo subject. Your brakes don't have brake pads they have brake shoes & brake squeel is associated with resonance of the shoes & back plate . One Automobile modification was to fit a weighted block with a rubber bond to the back plate to reduce resonance. Anyone noticed if you reverse against the brake overrun the noise goes for a while. The journey back home had no brake noise but we weren't in stop start traffic.
  2. Watched a vid of how to re-season spun pans. Think I'll try it but not before I get some info from Bailey on there instruction manual.
  3. Thanks Rachell I'll PM you ... Regards
  4. It doesn't list oiling the plate at all in the caravan manual but just preheating the plate before use to burn off production residue. So I can't see why the problem is directed or hinted at miss use with the owner. Why does everyone try to make excuses for poor products. You may as well say to always store the caravan undercover to prevent water ingress ... Thanks for the advice๐Ÿ‘
  5. With respect ..that's a silly post. There's nothing in the manual anywhere to indicate that regular oiling of the plate is required. It's almost as bad as the wet jay cloth syndrome. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
  6. What about if I coat it with 5W30 C4 after every cooking event ... Would that suffice but obviously not mentioned in the caravan manual๐Ÿ˜‰.
  7. It is totally embarrassing. What I can't understand is that there was never a problem before.
  8. Update .. Mentioned the priming of the plate to the wife over dinner & she instantly shot me down.. She had primed it as per user manual . Medium setting for 3-5mins to burn off residual & smell. That's it nothing else or about using oil. (See image)
  9. With respect I know who my contract is with re my posts a long while back. I will be contacting my dealer, Bailey Lesuire & AL-KO over this issue. Simples ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. The pump had packed up again tonight. Had to stand outside and shake the pump when it stopped to get it working whilst the wife took a shower. Off to buy yet another pump tomorrow and before anyone replies ... Yes I haven't let the pump run dry and yes we switch of the mains when re-filling the tank.
  11. I'll pass this on to the wife ... So basically spill some oil on it and happy days ๐Ÿ˜‚ So are you saying that not complying with this "Priming session" it will cause rust on the plate ? ....
  12. I remember a few owners having their joints filled and I remember the first show vans with some having mastic filled joints and others not... Seems it's back to fitters on the production track and quality control or the lack of it again.
  13. All new from the start & all been replaced again ... ๐Ÿ™„
