  1. Check the gutter overhang !
  2. You can use the same technique to check if the fridge light goes out, saves traumatising a small child !
  3. Go westbound round the M60 and then up M61 to join M6 @ Preston shorter and easier than Eastbound, only left turns . when coming north on A6 as you pass the Hazel Grove area look for M60 signs before you go down hill into Stockport, there are a few lefts and rights, but all the trucks do it, The Caravan will will just follow you.
  4. My Santa Fe has Cross Climates all round. Last week I had to attend a hospital appointment in Manchester some 45 miles away. The journey took me over 4 hours because I was stuck behind unprepared drivers. when I eventually got to the hospital the only spaces available were on the top floor of their car park, which the attendant had coned off because of the 3-4 “ of snow on the slope - move the cones please - I drove straight up no wheel spin and steered round the bend easily. When I walked away others were trying but not succeeding, well worth the extra money - the’re good in mud too.
  5. Today’s Sunday Telegraph reports that Saga are pulling their credit card (& all it’s benefits) by the end of March. It seems their agreement with AIB has ended. They will require customers to pay off all their balance or transfer it to another provider by the end of March. I can see Halifax Clarity, Nationwide et al getting a flurry of applications - had my Clarity card for several years. ..
  6. If it’s an insurance claim why is the dealer waiting for Lunar to supply the parts ? The fridge vent cover should be available from the fridge manufacturer as a spare, and Lunar don’t make their own awning rails, they are just an aluminium extrusion, it just a case of finding the company that makes them - try an internet search. otherwise the name of Lunars MD is Brian Mellor, and their phone number is 01772337628
  7. You’ve not been reading the posts below on Safefill. You can now refill at any Morrison’s filling station that sells Auto-gas, I’m lucky I have both Morrison’s and a couple of independent gas suppliers within reasonable distance, just needed a bit of research.
  8. Try CoPilot, - www. copilot. com - downloads all the info onto the phone, just needs the GPS signal not the mobile signal. The app is free, you then buy the maps for which area you need, ( I have Western Europe, USA, and Australia. ) Prices vary, but updates are free, and you can download them onto different devices - I use a 7" tablet. Don't bother with the RV and Caravan version,the standard. Version is excellent.
  9. What would happen if the OP had not bothered to insure the caravan? - bearing in mind there is no legal obligation to do so. Would the Third Party's insurers refuse to pay anything on the basis it wasn't insured? I would be issuing a county court summons against the Third Party for ALL my losses.
  10. Still got a leaflet for The Sally Line service, the ship would lay up in Dunkirk for the night and you could sleep on until about 7:00am, or pull off into the sand dunes with the caravan and go to bed! - happy days! The DFDS crossing to Dunkirk has a restaurant of sorts, but it closes at 7:00pm, and the cafe is terrible, we try to eat on the way to Dover, and just have a brew and a bun on the ship.
  11. If you want to just drain the hot water. Use the little yellow lever on the floor near the unit, just lift it up, open a hot tap and it will drain. If you want to drain the whole system, WHY? - it has an anti-freeze and corrosion inhibitor in it which is good for several years. Alde say there is no drain for the whole system, the fluid is usually changed by pumping new in to push out the old, (no air locks) and is done via the pipes in the wardrobe. BTW, don't forget to close the yellow lever and the hot tap!
  12. Don't forget that on single carriageway roads the speed limit is now 80kph (50 mph) except of course on those roads having 3 lanes where the 2 lanes running in the same direction are at 90kph, proper dual carriageways are higher(110? ) and motorways are still at 120/130. Just driven solo about 1400 miles, about half off motorways, and boy is the traffic slower !!
  13. CAMC include 9 months comprehensive European cover on all their car policies, and 12 months on their Motor home policies, with no time restrictions. ( though only 6 months on caravans!)
  14. I think it may be low pressure (30 ?) and is connected via your BBQ point, I can't see any site running a high pressure pipe of any length. BTW I have heard of German sites providing gas, but usually they are in ski resorts.
  15. Went from Dreux to Orleon on 1st August, no problems, except my favourite 'short cut' right through the middle of Chartres was blocked by roadworks! Had to go all the way round. .
