  1. MPG the gates at Bien Assise are open all night.We have arrived late,no reception so have found a pitchand paid in the morning no problem
  2. Thanks for all replies pot luck it is.With regards to the site mentioned at Blangy sur Bresle what time does it close the gates at night?
  3. Thinking of using this site for an overnight next month my question is whats it like re getting a pitch is there good availability or is it just pot luck? Are there plenty of parking spaces. Any info would be helpful Thanks
  4. Have you set the water temperature about 3rd symbol down which gives booster for extra hot water? We have a 580 and when we shut down the Alde it nearly always shuts down the hot water and has to be reinstated You can see if the heating is running as the pump symbol,top left of Alde screen turns indicating pump running cheers
  5. We normally caravan in Europe at least twice a year Have not gone this year as have been waiting for Brexit to finalise so that I knew what requirements would be with regard to Dog,vehicle insurance and driving licence. From the latest debacle it would appear that nothing will happen until October at the earliest.So I presume that everything will be as before if I go now and return before October. That is how iI interpret it. Has anyone got any different info re this and not just speculation Thanks in advance
  6. We usually stop at Thr Drum Inn Stanford,Ashford its a campsite at the rear of the pub its locked at night but you canleave any time as they give you the gate code for the lock.Its approx 1/2 mile from j11 on the M20.Thr tunnel is approx 3 miles away just google it if interested
  7. As above I had an accident in France when the van was only 3 months old consisted of panel damage at front and all down the side plus door Panelworks repaired it and you genuinley could not tell where it had been damaged John
  8. Whilst on holiday in France the car and caravan was pitched under trees. After a few days I realised that large amounts of tree sap which has now cristalized had adhered to both car and caravan. I have tried tar and insect and tree sap remover but cannot budge it. Has anyone any tops for removing it Thanks
  9. Thanks for the speedy replies
  10. In June we travelled along the N154 North and it was closed for road repairs between Chartres and Dreux. We are due back in that area on 28th August If anyone has been this way recently please advise me if the road works have finished and if this stretch is now open Thanks
  11. We came up the N154 on 9th June the road is shut after Chartres just before Dreux near to a place called Tremblay Les Villages. There w2as numerous signs stating that it was closed and to take the diversion around it. We ignored them thinking that when we got to the closure a diversion would be posted off the roundabout. I obviously forgot about the French logic as when we got to the closure it just ended and no roundabout!!! fortunately my wife was quick with the map and navigated us back on track at Dreux. Obviously we should have taken the diversion earlier. I presume your sat nav knows about the closure and is compensating for it. Hope this helps
  12. Off to Spain Saturday I know that the speed limit on the motorway is 80 K with the van on just wondered how keen the police are if I travel at about 60 MPH Thanks
  13. RAC do it in conjunction with camping and caravanning club its called Arrival they cover any lenght trailer/caravan . I understand that the cover on the RAC european cover recovery without Arrival just covers for 7. 0 metres so important you research that one for price
  14. As others have stated its easy to find,however make sure that you use the dedicated 24 hour credit card pump as the ones that exit via the payment booth are very tight aand not caravan friendly
  15. Alko every time I had the Winterhoff and on numerous occasions the hitch would not release especially if the rubber bellows had compressed after reversing onto a pitch or reverse levelling. Never had a problem with Alko
