  1. Got an automatic refund from Admiral. £25 per policy, so £75 for me (wife, daughter and me). Didn't have to ask, it just appeared in my bank account.
  2. I had a 2011 KX3 which towed my Unicorn Barcelona with ease. Now have a 2015 KX3 which also tows it effortlessly. Cheers Paul
  3. HI all. Located the tracker and changed the battery - once located was an easy job. A few years ago I took advantage of an offer from Tracker for a lifetime membership so I called to check that all was still OK. Evidently, as the unit is 9 years old, it needs a whole new device rather than just replace the battery! The cost would be £250 (+ VAT I assume). Not sure if this was the fitted price or if this was on top, but even at this price it was not really worth it! Have now taken off the tracker discount from the insurance which resulted in a ~£60 increase! If I hadn't checked with Tracker, I wonder if it would still have been covered. Cheers Paul
  4. Hi Alan - thanks for the reply - I have tried calling them but they do not answer so don't know whether they are open or not. Cheers Paul
  5. Hi I need to replace the filling of the seats in my Unicorn Barcelona (2011). They are filled with fully sprung foam pads at the moment and just wondering if anyone knows what density I should use for the replacement. Thanks is advance for any help. Cheers Paul
  6. Hi All Wondering if someone can help. I have a Unicorn Barcelona 2011 which I have owned from new so I know the alarm backup battery has not been changed. Anyway, have bought a new Yusa battery (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000V3QT42/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) thanks to this forum, but can I find the battery on the 'van? Searched in numerous places (won't mention where) and removed various panels but still cannot locate. I realise there are security issues with posting details on an open forum, but if anyone could PM me and give me an idea where to look, that would be really appreciated. Cheers Paul
  7. Can really recommend Camping Le Dauphin - great pools, and some of the pitches have their own shower room we we used so didn't need to use facilities in the caravan. https://www.campingledauphin.com/en/
  8. Phase 10 - great for all ages
  9. May be worth checking that the Alde tank is not over filled as it may leak from the overflow pipe?

    Totally agree with this. If drivers did not slow down and carried on at the speed they were doing, they would be called irresponsible. I remember years ago on Tomorrows World (shows how long ago it was!) they showed the effects of a line of traffic, with the front car braking and slowing down a little. Eventually the concertina effect meant that cars further down the line were stationary.

    Cordless Drill

    I use a Bosch drill which comes with 2 batteries and is currently £80 at Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-Cordless-Combi-Lithium-Ion-Batteries/dp/B00L3XK06C/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1551775468&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=bosch+cordless+drill&psc=1 Very quiet and each battery last a long time. There are two speeds and occasionally have to put onto lower speed if the steady is under pressure, but then straight back to the higher one. Very pleased and would highly recommend. Cheers Paul
  12. Looked at the Rhino Goo web site and in the product section there is one specifically for caravans Might give this a try Cheers Paul
  13. It works OK with the filter. Effectively, it lies on its side at the bottom of the barrel as the pump connector is full length. Have thought about cutting a bit off the end but not got around to it yet. Cheers Paul
