      Forum upgrade   12/10/17

      Hi everyone, As you're probably aware, we've been in the process of upgrading the Caravan Talk forum software for a while. I can now confirm that the software has been upgraded and we're fully up to date. Please note that this new software is quite different in appearance and function, so may require a bit of relearning. We are in the process of refining the look, features and experience to make it a bit better and more familiar. If you spot any issues please let us know in the feedback forum. Unfortunately any posts between Monday morning and now have been lost. This is due to when the database snapshot was taken for the upgrade, this may also affect new members since then. We do apologise for this, but we have tried to keep disruption to a minimum. We are already aware and working on the following issues: PayPal payment issues for CT Supporters Forum design, lack of CT branding including colours Temporary loss of reviews databases Navigation bar needs refining We will keep this list up to date, so please check here before posting new updates, or to keep on tabs of our progress. The software was upgraded in order to provide you with a more secure, reliable, faster experience, whilst providing us with more tools to improve the features and options for the forum. Thank you for your continued support. Ben and the CT Team

    I can confirm my tyres were balanced before tyrons fitted with a few weights fitted, then had the tyrons fitted and had many weights fitted to each wheel, so they do affect balance.

    Looks like the wheel rim is not damaged, so that saved you £300+ for a new rim I take it??

    I can see this thread ending up like the last one

    I had them fitted to previous van and now on present, both were part of the deal, some here argue they are not worth having, others do, its down to personal choice, I consider that anything that helps bring a van to a safe controlled stop, should be considered.

    I agree with you Peter, I have just had a look at my owners manual and the warranty page only states windows, so as a door is not a window it must be covered under the structure section. As I mentioned in an earlier post when I had my door replaced due to the black plastic bowing Coachman replaced the door but after they said they shouldn't have done as the plastic will bow and as the seal is only around the door window, so should not have replaced it, but mine slipped through thankfully. If it is cracked then it must be where the sealant is and should be replaced under warranty.

    I fitted one recently very useful when needing to refill water at night easier than holding a torch, picked the feed up in the radio box and fitted switch in exactly the same way Coachman fitted so looks like factory fitted

    When ever I have had items replaced/repaired under warranty whoever I have claimed from state it is only covered for the remainder of the original warranty. .
