  1. Don't think that there is one on my caravan - not looked. I guessed what it was because I made one for my watering system about 14 years ago to stop water hammer in the house plumbing when it started. I just looked up caravan water srge damper to check

  5. I'll have a look for it BOAC
  6. I was going to say that
  7. ALKO ATC instructions http://www.swift-owners-club.com/support/oem-handbooks/alko/AL-KO-ATC-Handbook-Issue 2.pdf
  8. I agree that it is a nuisance and a pain but passing the test is future proofing in one way for changes in tow vehicles or caravans.
  9. I wasn't going to say a thing about watching TV Durbanite We use a Huawei mobile router and use a 12 month 24gb EE data sim for £40 from Argos.
  10. When last I looked they were permitted to tow caravans but not motorhomes. The story that a warden told me at the time was that when staff were towing a motor hoe off the motorhome driver, turned the steering away from the tractors route, presumably trying to reach solid ground quicker and thinking he was a skier behind a speedboat The result was damage to the motorhome and a claim against CMC. So unless a warden can physically extract you with a barrow of gravel, a shovel and a push best call out Mayday or whoever,
  11. I have a 2018 Model caravan built in December 2017 and purchased in December 2017 but 2018 spec. New caravan models are released from September ( ? not sure of month) the previous year. So a caravan built in 2002 can be either a 2001/2002 model with 1300kg MPTLM or a 2002/2003 model with 1340MPTLM look like yours is plated as 1340kg
  12. Hi Ben, I edited my previous post. I checked three source, all said 1340kg so yep need to take the test
  13. Where about on the caravan is this plate? It may be as with my present caravan where the original MPTLM was 1400kg but I had this uprated to 1500kg. I checked 3 sites and all give a MPTLM of 1340kg. http://www.uktow.com/caravans.asp?lc=0&model=Avondale Rialto 550 /4&company_name=Avondale
  14. Good call in my opinion.
  15. I don't think I would fancy anything on a shelf over a basin and especially if on the rear wall. Miss seeing a sleeping policeman coming up until too late or drive too quickly off a raised speed table and I could imagine a bottle of shower gel jumping out and into the basin
  16. I suspect that most sites simply average their electricity costs over the year.
  17. Personally I would prefer not to have metered electricity. Not because I am a heavy user but because I prefer to do without faffing about.
  18. I have seen muppets who have roof lights open wide with outside temperatures below 10 C at night!
  19. I would guess that my mover operates at about 0.5 m/s. So in 15 minutes 450 metres. Not sure about that? Certainly over 100m would be easily doable but if in storage for a period of time how well charged would the leisure battery be??
  20. Depends on the site and the pitch as to how desirable the site is. For me however I don't tour to visit a site but to visit the area. Some sites are better than others if we want to sit outside in the afternoon. Southport would not be one though! Southport is however the only site that we have visited more than 2 or 3 times in 15 years. We visit around 22 to 24 sites a year usually staying 5 nights on each. We have had a two week stay at Southport every December and over Christmas for the last 9 years. Sitting out when we return to site after 3pm is unlikely then.
  21. How big is your battery? The longest run for me was on site at Kendal. I unhitched caravan and, using the mover, just managed to reverse it back and into a pitch better angled for driving a motorhome straight into. The caravan rear was 6 inches off a grass bank on the turn and the hitch passing between the rails on a 3 or 4 rail fence. Damned if I could repeat the manouvre in reverse to hitch up when leaving. I got OH to walk down the track to stop any vehicles as I drove the caravan around a bend or two and to a pitch that, out of interestI checked by pacing on the way back for the car, to find that was 80m. As an Ex highway engineer I can pace pretty accurately - or could then when my hips were better, Caravan is 1,500kg and 110Ah battery. Usually the greatest distances would be 30+ metres in and out from home to hitch.
  22. No 'happened' about it Woodentop. I chose EE for a reason. I thought 3 would have worked OK too. Never checked coverage for area
  23. Not always a good thing though.
  24. I have visited the site twice in the last 7 years or so, last time was in May this year. Mobile phone worked fine on EE. This year I would have received at least 7 or 8 calls from daughters and also used our mifi for internet on the last 3 nights of our 5 night stay as our CMC annual wifi had run out and I had enough remaining on a 12 month 24 gb data sim that would run out between that holiday and our next. The last trip I used the mobile phone to contact a dentist, green flag several times, a garage where a power steering pipe was being replace after being holed by a stone and also several taxi firms whilst getting a taxi at what was a busy time for them. No idea now whether the phone signal was 3G or 4G but internet was fine
  25. It sounds as if you were getting sucked towards the HGVs. Not something that I experience much other than perhaps when overtaking them and rear end of the caravan is just about past them. Rarely notice it then though as I tend to accelerate slightly at that point which reduces the effect. When a HGV overtakes and if you feel the outfit being drawn towards it the trick is not to overreact and to ease away gently with the steering if you feel it necessary. What noseweight were you using previously and what MPTLM is the caravan and which tow car. I doubt that you had lots of snaking as such. A snake is a whole different animal! I hope you never experience a snake.
