    Bike lugging

    Thanks for all your comments, certainly some 'food for thought'!

    Axle load is what I was concerned about, not easy to go to a weighbridge!

    Bike lugging

    Hi all, recently bought 2X electric bikes, think best way to carry is a bike rack on rear of car (Ford Kuga) but a little concerned at all that weight right at the back combined with 80kg nose weight on towbar. Reassurance please!
  4. Help please. Tried to drain water heater today (Bailey Ranger), I have set taps open and raised yellow drain down lever as per instructions but not even a trickle from below. Fearing heater may already be frozen I connected water pump and tested by opening hot tap, all ok! I know tank is full of water, I have wiggled and operated drain tap but to no avail. I am thinking that I will have to remove drain tap for closer inspection but I will then face the task of collecting 10 litres of water from the end of removed pipe! Any ideas?
  5. Thanks Honk, 1999 Avondale Dart 510/5, I don't have a manual!
  6. Hi, can anyone tell me how to replace no. plate light bulb? cover has a small black plastic 'tang' sticking out of the left hand side but I cannot see how to remove cover. Many thanks in advance!
  7. I think they all leak at this age, buy a cover!

    Sliding Door Guide.

    Thanks Trainspotter, not sure how to do that, it is a brown plastic channel, U shaped 23mm wide (internal), flaring to 35mm at one end. 80mm long with sidewalls that are 15mm deep. Hoping you can help with my description, regards Gary.
  9. Can anyone suggest who may be able to supply me with 2 new 'lower sliding door guides' for my 1999 Avondale Dart, they have the makers name 'HAFELE' moulded into them but a search of their extensive parts list has proven fruitless! Many thanks in advance, Gary.
  10. I live on the Isle of Wight and have to use Wightlink or Red Funnel whenever I wish to travel more than 15 miles from my home. Both are extremely expensive, I prefer Wightlink as their crossings are far more frequent, if you arrive at a Wightlink terminal early you can usually get an earlier crossing although this is not true at peak periods!

    Spongy Floor.

    Hi all, if I fail to do anything about suspected de-lamination in kitchen area, what will happen? Many thanks in advance.
  12. I bet someone taped a 'number plate' in the rear window, try methylated spirit or nail varnish remover but test gently first, in a corner in case it melts the window.
  13. Thanks re comments about 'on-site' camping, call me a snob but not really my cup of tea!
  14. Thanks for comments, spent 1 day at revival a couple of years ago and although expensive was absolutely fantastic. Far too much to see in one day and the racing was superb. Had considered Lakeside but was put off by poor reviews, maybe I'll re-consider.
  15. Can anyone suggest a site close (within 10 miles) to the Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit in West Sussex. Wife and I intend to visit the revival in September. We stayed at Graffham last time which was superb but a little out of the way. I have read reviews and a lot of sites in the area seem to be on noisy main roads. Many thanks, Gary.
