  1. The service guy said they were starting to perish. Plus I did do a search before starting this post on here and a few people had had issues with the Michelin’s cracking within the second and third years. I always anyway coat the tyre sidewalls in Armorall and also use wheel covers when the caravan is parked on the drive.
  2. Well my U3 Cartagena is 5 years old. Been advised by the caravan service guy that all 5 tyres need replacing(which I was aware of anyway). Checked what size the current Michelin energy tyres were...185/65/R14T with a 86 load rating....so nothing special, they’re car tyres. Found a good deal online for 5 x Falken eco run tyres of the same size and rating from Tyresonthedrive.com for £220. So mobile fitter is booked to come out and replace them in the next few Days. I’m assuming it’s just single axle caravans that have the more trailer specific tyres fitted??
  3. It turns out there’s a slot on the back of the antenna for a jubilee clip to go through so that’s what I’ve now utilised
  4. Great stuff! Thank you i did email Motorhome WiFi but was still awaiting a response
  5. Has anyone with a iboost been able to mount it to a aerial mast? As there doesn’t seem a dedicated mount in the iboost kit to do this. So need to come up with a novel mounting solution. Cheers
  6. Well for all those who have the same internal sensors fitted to their Bailey, I have just received a quick response via email from Tyrepal. The internal sensors are sealed so need replacing. They are £30 each plus £4.95 postage from Tyrepal. You can get them slightly cheaper through the Caravan Club and using their discount(10% off). looks like new sensors it is
  7. Thanks I had looked there but they only mention for the external ones and not the internal type
  8. Well my U3 is approaching 5 years old and looking to fit 4 new tyres to my Cartagena in the next couple of months. However I’m not sure what to do about the internal sensors. Can the batteries be replaced on them or do I need new sensors(£30 a corner!)? As all I can read about the sensors is that the batteries in them last the life of the tyres, which I assume is 5 years?
  9. Well would you be so kind as to post the link as I’ve used the search function
  10. Hi matelodave yes mines a bailey alutec so I don’t think I have any security issues there. I am however swaying to find a suitable Neat and secure suction mount method. I’ve seen some suction lifters that are very strong and shouldn’t hurt the caravan sidewall at its made of GRP. Just looking for other possibilities as I really don’t want anything permanent fixing on the caravan wall
  11. If I can just update and clarify. I may actually use a tv mast but I also need a suitable temporary mounting method to the side of the caravan. Some sort of suction mount would be ideal. I know some may suggest a bracket for the jockey wheel but this is a option I have ruled out
  12. Have you got a photo of your set up? As I’m looking for something to fit my antenna to aswell as my iboost
  13. Hi SP1


    would you be so good as to give me some info on your mast  you use for your iboost? In particular what suction cups you are using.





  14. As the title says, is there such a product out there where you can slide the brackets into the awning channel and the clamp a tv mast to them. I know there are clamps for the jockey wheel to do this but I’m not after on of those. Cheers
