    Bailey Unicorn Valencia 2018
  1. I have an Isabella Magnum Coal on a Unicorn 4 Valencia which clears the window.. The near side of your Cabrera looks the same as the Valencia (apart from the locker). I use the roof strap as a guide when drawing the awning along the channel.
  2. I had this problem and added a one way valve on the intake side of the pump. It cured the problem but made the pump operation very noisy. I have since removed the one way valve and the issue has gone. Perhaps the grit became dislodged from the pump!
  3. Same here! About a year ago had water running from top corner, was a crack in ABS panel. Changed under warranty and no problems since. I'd get it checked out as soon as possible.
  4. No reason to be "blackballed", I just seem to be ignored by the forum. My user names appear in the user list but I still have no passwords. It's sooooo frustrating! I've had two serious breakdowns with my "57" plate Santa Fe and I'd like to see if others have had similar experiences on the owners club forum.
  5. Has anyone been able to register with the Owners Club Forum? I've tried twice with different email addresses but never got a password sent. I've also emailed the administrators twice using the contact form on the forum but again no response. Do they have a problem or have I been "blackballed"?
  6. Sorry for late reply to Rob T s post, been away on business. The gauze filters are in the middle arm of each brass Tee. You need to unscrew the white plastic union to see the filter and its O-Rings. Cheers
  7. My Indiana had the problem of the pump becoming noisy and I also noticed a reduction in pressure. I have found that the valves on each side of the pump incorporate a metal gauze filter. The gauze on the input side had become clogged with black particles and hence the pump was working hard to suck in the water. Having cleaned this out I now have a pump which purrs rather than knocks. It may be that the initial use of a new filter released some charcoal particles which blocked the gauze filter.
  8. I have exactly the same problem which occured on Monday. My dealer has one in stock and waiting for collection. Incidentally this is a common occurance with Baileys of this age and they now recomend using a 16A MCB as replacement. Swopping is easy!
  9. I've had three Passat Estates now and towed many miles with all of them. All of them had clutches which gave off a bad smell when reversing with Caravan, on hill starts with Caravan and occasionally stop / start traffic with Caravan. Never had the problem when solo. The first two covered 75,000+ miles with no clutch replacement. The current car has only done 10,000 miles. I wouldn't worry about it. ..just enjoy towing with it!

    Replacing Bulbs

    I have had to change both bulbs on my previous Passat (2002 SE) in the last six months. The nearside was possible with long fingers and the corresct swear words. The offside bulb was impossible for me at the roadside and I had to use the RAC. My new Passat (2004 Sport) appears identical. It might be worth carrying the tools required to reomve the airbox whilst touring,especially abroad
