  1. Set camera on burst mode and select best shot
  2. https://www.caravan-breakers.com/touring-caravan-breakers-near-me.html Is this site useful to find a missing part?
  3. https://www.sealsdirect.co.uk/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw4cOEBhDMARIsAA3XDRjMg-WDdL2dxYxmO9RijbuOxRFUwanJ3w8g9_MFpbfHnd2BQtK0f6EaAhKMEALw_wcB Check this site. It maybe you need new rubber seals. They also come with an adhesive within the channel. Any joints in the seal are best made in the lower section.
  4. Always when filling the water system turn on the hot tap furthest away from the pump. Then when the water runs freely open the cold tap. This should remove any air lock in the pipes. The hot tap first ensures the water heater tank fills first.
  5. This item on Amazon may be of interest. RUNACC Electric Air Pump for Inflatables Portable Battery Air Pump Rechargeable Electric Pump for Airbed Air Mattress Paddling Pool Note it is rechargable 5v via USB
  6. You certainly got a good result but can I suggest you start initial washdown from the bottom of the van and work upwards. This can prevent streaking which can be caused by water coming off the roof over dirt on the caravan sides. As it runs down it has the effect of cleaning unevenly and can be difficult to remove. I personally use Fenwicks products and recommend you read the usage instructions they supply. ie Wash the van from bottom to top and leave the roof till last. Happy caravanning.
  7. The photo shows two canoests but they were in fibreglass boats. The rocks may give an inflatable a lot of grief. I have no idea what the river is like anywhere else except here so not really very helpful?
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. The owner was very upset when the van took off downhill with the hand brake on after the breakaway cable operated properly. Bad chassis servicing I expect. He had to take the handbrake off to tow it out of the hedge!
  14. 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.
  15. 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
