  1. Hi couple of points, 1. If your towing vehicle (car) has correctly wired towing electrics ( 13 pin or 2x7s) then the fridge is being run from the car electrics when the engine is running, and the caravan battery is also being charged. The fridge is never run from the caravan battery.. 2. When you hook up to site electrics the battery is then being charged and the fridge is running on 240v. 3. Your mover will run OK as long as the battery is charged, either on hook up or when towing. I move my caravan about 40 yards on mover to park at home with no problems with battery.
  2. Don’t book, just turn up. Alternatively drive further down the motorway towards Abberville and stop at Bay de Somme services for free.
  3. Usually a switch marked ‘exterior light’ but... it’s also controlled by the small button on your alarm remote, though normally that’s used when you approach at night. if all else fails try the owners manual!
  4. Contact A & E leisure at Northwich Cheshire, they are an independent AWS workshop who are authorised to do warranty work for Lunar ( amongst others) Talk to Nichola Woodcock on 01606 973005 - but be aware they are a very busy repair business and you may have to wait some weeks to get work done - and probably even longer for Lunar to supply any parts required! They are near to The Anderton Lift on the North side of the town, so up the M6 to junction 19, then A556 west, then use you sat nav!
  5. PR1. You are lucky, your daughter is making her way under her own steam! our youngest for many years ‘followed us’ by plane, we would collect her from the nearest airport, feed and water her for a few days and then return her to the airport- but the flights were usually at our expense- she even did it to Australia once, though we did fool her by going on a cruise to Norway, but she did try to con us into a flight to Bergen. Fortunately she is now a mother herself, but I suspect it won’t be lng before we are paying for 2 ( or more) airfares!
  6. Hi Richard I have the Hyundai equivalent, The Tucson MHEV 2 Ltd 4x4 185 hp Premium SE only towed about 80 miles with it, and only on non motorway, but it handled my 1498 kg Lunar very well, had a Santa Fe before hardly any noticeable difference, but I took it very steady as the car only had 300 miles on the clock. Have now done about 1500 and plan a trip to Sussex in a couple of weeks. only problem I had was the car seemed reluctant to go beyond 4th gear of an 8 speed auto, have agreed with the garage to try a couple of experiments- I.e. try sport mode, and also to unplug the electrics when safe to try to see if the electronics are reading something from the genuine Hyundai electrics. I can use the manual change and that ran fine, telling me I needed to actually be in 7th gear, so it may need some adjustments to the gearbox electronics. love the toys though, it even reads speed limit signs and displays them on the dash, and the surround camera is a source of great wonderment! keep us posted regards Richard
  7. Well I note that they will not cover miss-fuelling, nor will they tow you out of the mud/snow, and no more than 4 breakdowns a year (Mayday covers all of these) they also say only one recovery per breakdown, ( double journey) but they later contradict this! But ... they also say on both the UK and European cover they will recover your caravan if “ it can be recovered by towing” that means no flat bed recovery!
  8. Don’t pay your GP a fortune - just google “ HGV Medical in xxx area” the average charge is about £50, usually carried out at a time to suit you - and sometimes a place too.
  9. David, it’s only on one side of the motorway, you cross the bridge coming from Calais. no problems stopping overnight, easier to park in the loop in front of the main building as the ‘ caravan site’ gets full early, and is tight anyhow. Last August they were refurbishing the building so facilities were a bit restricted but they should be finished by now. Will be there just for a break ( going without the caravan) in late June - will advise further!
  10. Check the gutter overhang !
  11. You can use the same technique to check if the fridge light goes out, saves traumatising a small child !
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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. ..
  15. 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
