    The barrel can be removed and replaced. They should supply a full set and have them changed for you incl new keys.

    I had one of my locks replaced on the front locker as the piece that protects the keyhole and moves aside as the key is inserted was missing. There was no need for any new key as the dealer ordered a matching lock from the code.

    Of all the holidays the winter ones are my favourites. For me nothing beats a crisp winter morning in a nice warm awning, a decent coffee with a Brandy stiffener, reading the Times and doing the puzzles. 
    long walk with the dogs and winter warming food. Best of all we can kick Christmas well into touch. 

    Between start to mid April and end of September we have 3 tours varying between 7 and 4 weeks and moving every 5 days. For the last 10 years though we get away from around mid December (13th this time) and come back just before New Year. Similar but without awning or dog. We get out and get exercise walking  and also some chilling. No TV. Christmas is limited to a few candles these days. We will be out for 15 nights.

  3. I checked out CCC a couple of weeks backs whilst looking for insurance. I am sure that they provide Insurance to non-members. As a regulated company there is no reason why they wouldn't. The CMC can't do so as a mutual insurance company it can only sell to members

    Or were responders just too keen to lay the boot in to CMC to notice?


    Responders were mislead by the original thread title if that answers your smart comment

    It's like listening to a worn out record...

    If you don't like it there are plenty of other tracks that you can enjoy rather than moan about this one. Did you have anything to add worth reading?

    We got a cheap temperature gauge from The Range

    Off topic but: 17 years ago I bought a folding digital alarm clock with a built in thermometer for my other half before she moved in with me. In 17 years not only has it kept perfect time but it is still the original battery.

    We have had that system in two Lunars since 2015 and it has never caused a problem. You just work out what temperature suits you.

    Never had a problem either. I just add 2 degrees onto desired temperature when setting. I think that it may be possible to adjust the temperature offset but have never seen the need

    David38, the difference between 3G and 4G is speed, so it might be worthwhile going to 4G but if you find 3G quick enough for you then why bother?


    The Huawei I have is 4g but before that I had a 3G one. It was fine. The only reason that I changed was that I had a friend who had to go into a nursing home for a while and the room he had did not pick up the building wifi. I gave him by router with about 18gb data on and bought the 4g for our next tour. The later one is definitely heavier and I assume a larger battery.

    I still find it grates though when I hear the term "plug-socket", as it cannot be both a plug and a socket.

    Oh dear, Oh dear. A lame pedant is a sad thing indeed. A plug socket is a socket that accepts a plug and is normally thought of as an electrical component . An eye socket accepts an eye, a plug blocks a sink.  There are many forms of socket but only a plug socket is thought of as accepting an electrical plug

    I've never found them advantageous, even when I've wanted to buy the product - but with the commision/advertising revenue the club gets from such schemes, they should be able to reduce charges to members!

    We have occasionally used a 2 for 1 offer but I didn't join CMC for offers

    Kathy, I don't have a problem with the wheel lock, that and the hitch lock go on as they are insurance required. I would like to see some one try to pull it out from where it is parked though. ;)

    How do you fancy an eight foot wide van?

    Why can’t I make a comment  or have an opinion about something & have to go elsewhere?

    You don't have to go elsewhere Arnie. I merely asked, in view of the storage increase, why you did not. Is there nowhere better?

    a disputes system might be needed or at least published.

    A point that, as would most salesman; the club have carefully avoided addressing with any response. In fact I would go as far as to suggest that some of the clubs statements could be misread as saying that they had addressed that issue. The cynic in me says that is intentional so as not to discourage prospective customers. After all sales managers want to hit higher targets year on year

    I do understand the concerns  given the policy wording, the idea that they will turn down perfectly good claims on that basis is  simply not believable. The club do now need to explain the situation more clearly, as it is clearly concerning many members. what you have is something inserted to cover a legal point, that can never be applied to a valid claim without destroying the business overnight. If anyone thinks the club might do that then they will vote to leave.

    Neither you nor the club seem to realise what it is that concerns those members that have decided to look elsewhere for insurance.

    It is not about the club being unable to pay out, in my case .it is not about the club not paying out. It is simply of a dispute which might be over the level of payment awarded. Others have similar concerns in case of a dispute. 

    simplest way to satisfy those concerns is to go elsewhere
