  1. Failing to remove the plug from the car when taking the van off the towbar, rips all the wires out of the plug as the car is driven forward. I have met a few owners who have had this happen. One chap had a band of 'helpers' trying to reconnect all the wires and could not agree which wire went where!
  2. Will this information be of help still? https://caravanchronicles.com/guides/the-13-pin-plug-puzzle/ I recently found two or three people new to this type of car connection who were having problems on their early trips out.
  3. Welcome to CT You may find this link useful. https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/caravan-finance/buying/checks-when-buying-a-caravan
  4. A friend of mine left his car and van coupled up for 4 nights and found the car battery went flat. He only found out when the key failed to open the car locking system. Had to phone the AA to sort it out.
  5. For some years I have used an online website to keep a fuel record. Does anyone else keep a record like this? http://www.fuelly.com/dashboard It keeps a running record of costs, mpg, and oils etc.
  6. Has anyone used Aldi bio washing sachets in the toilet instead of blue and green fluids. Two in the lower section work very well each time the toilet is refreshed. Must be Bio to work properly. Very convenient in use.
  7. I have 2 small cylinders which are not available at the moment in UK. Very light even when full so really help with noseweight. The review is very factual and I agree with it very much. My current supplier is selling LPG (for heating only) at 60p per litre. They do not supply gas for cars LPG for cars carry additional VAT to that charged for heating rate.
  8. I had a blood test in October last year which showed I was borderline type 2 diabetic . My score was 55 in the test The hemoglobin A1c test tells you your average level of blood sugar over the past 2 to 3 months. It's also called HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin test, I started at a local qym and swimming pool. I was offered a City supported course on diet called Juggle. After 3 months my next blood test showed 43. My latest blood test has showed a score of 38. I continue to swim twice a week and attend the gym twice a week. I feel very lucky to be told by the doctor to have a blood test in October and keep up the good work. A combination of diet, exercise, and medication can bring your levels down. People with diabetes should have an A1c test every 3 months to make sure their blood sugar is in their target range. If your diabetes is under good control, you may be able to wait longer between the blood tests. But experts recommend checking at least two times a year.
  9. When I saw this I was sad I had to give up my bikes. If only it was so simple. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-43308729 "The immune system declines by about 2-3% a year from our 20s, which is why older people are more susceptible to infections, conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and, potentially, cancer. "Because the cyclists have the immune system of a 20-year-old rather than a 70- or 80-year-old, it means they have added protection against all these issues."
  10. Have you taken a battery voltage reading at the terminals? I use a voltmeter in the cigar lighter and one day it was reading 11.2 volts at 40 mph. The car was running on its battery as the alternator had failed.I had to bench charge the battery and have a new alternator as the old was not producing any output voltage.
  11. https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/caravan-finance/buying/checks-when-buying-a-caravan This maybe what you need.
  12. It would be interesting to know how old the tyres are?
  13. The Camping and Caravan Club may be worth a look.
  14. Try half a cup of soda crystals down each sink. Block the outlet pipe then pour warm water in to each sink until it backs up . Leave the soda mix for a while to work. Put a bucket under the outflow then unblock the outflow to see if any dirt comes from the waste pipe into the bucket?
