  1. Not true, I had the exact same on my Elddis 550. The cure is to get dealer to fit Ecocamel shower rose. water will last for 4 to 5 min. Dealer wanted me to buy one, but he caved in and gave me one. Dealers do have these. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EcoCamel-Eco-Camel-Jetstorm-E-Eco-Shower-Head-Economic-Caravan-Shower-Parts/172690407585?epid=1111740601&hash=item28352680a1:g:M0oAAOSwu1VW5Bjt&frcectupt=true
  2. look here https://www.powrtouch.com/pdf/Greasing Your Mover.pdf
  3. Had my Adora for 23 months now, no problem at all with the shower. As for the radiator, the only problem I can say is DON'T drop the soap, you will burn you bum!!!!!
  4. Fitted extra 240 v socket at bed Fitted 240 v socket and aerial socket in bed area Fitted Tv bracket to same place Fitted RGB Remote led around large centre roof window and around bed. Fitted remote start for Alde £25 Fitted Limo Black privacy film to all windows. (before the Oh no you cant fit film to caravan windows comments start) You can if its film for plastic windows. Fitted this on my previous vans with no issue after 5 years. Fitted external sat and aerial socket in battery box. Fitted extra 240 v Mains plug so i can charge van at home. The original one was up against a wall so I had no access to it. Hand that i can plug van in on any side. Modified the awning rail covers so I can fit a front cover. (no awning opening on the other side) Auto mover fitted. Replace jockey for Alko nose weight indicator type.
  5. Look here for the info your after https://www. caravantalk. co. uk/caravan-specifications/bailey/discovery-100-2005_3341 https://www. caravantalk. co. uk/caravan-specifications/bailey/discovery-200-2005_3347 https://www. caravantalk. co. uk/caravan-specifications/bailey/discovery-400-2005_3355
  6. That's a bit unfair that some come over with 1800 kg, others have 1750 kg then your asked to pay extra? I must be one of the lucky ones. Or unlucky if my car was maxed out at 1750 kg.
  7. Here is a strange one, with all this talking about weight. I have just looked at mine, it states 1800kg on the plate. Handbook states 1750kg. I never asked or paid for up grade.
  8. unfortunately its not over 8 meter you don't inc A frame. Body length is 6. 779 meter The maximum trailer width for any towing vehicle is 2. 55 metres. The maximum length for a trailer towed by a vehicle weighing up to 3,500kg is 7 metres. This length does not include the A-frame. Forgot to say, If your in the caravan club, go to outfit match you will see that the Santa fe is only a possible match.
  9. My Santa fe 2. 2 crdi was getting 22 mpg towing, Problem was it was only 80kg nose weight on ball. Jeep 3. 0 diesel is getting the same towing. I guess its the v6. Only difference is jeep is 3500 Kg With a 140 kg tow ball which pulls mega shack fantastic.
  10. Hi Tonks, I tow mine with a Jeep Grand Cherokee, 3500 Kg. It tows like a dream, Ps The van is 1750 Kg . I did have a Hyundai Santa Fe but I felt it was maxed out,
  11. I use a D-shackle, I personally feel safer with it rather than a breakaway cable. You can slip the whole breakaway latch through it. But that's just me. Better safe than sorry.
  12. Welcome to the world of Elddis. So sorry to hear of the problems you have with it. It make you mad after spending all that cash on a new van. Unfortunately your not alone. Mine fell to bits every time we went away something went wrong with it. I gave up after three years and traded it in. Shame as I liked the layout of it.
