  1. Thank you one and all, you've reassured me! Thanks.
  2. Hi, has anyone fitted a "rollout" awning to the awning rail of their coachman. The weights quoted for the cassettes are in the region of 11Kg. My concern is - can the awning rail take this sort of weigh?
  3. Job done, thanks to all! I had to remove the rail and refit the end toprunner end (the end away from the wardrobe.) Al fine now, SWMBO says it's never been right! Thanks again.
  4. Thanks, I'll search and give it a try!
  5. One of our dogs decided to try to go through the central divider when it was part closed. The result is that the upper fixing is hanging loose and so the whole thing "sways in the breeze" and is unuseable. How is/was the upper fixing attached? Could we have lost a part during the collision? Any help would be much appreciated.
  6. Unless you drive an articulated LGV or a PCV with trailer - you don't need the. Only a B+E for a 'van!
  7. Hi Haweye How did you address your request to LV? I'm sure many of us have the towing vehicle and the towed vehicle insured by different companies. Thanks. Adrian.
  8. Keep safe and thanks again for all your interesting reads agin this trip
  9. AS usual, informed and informative. Thank you again and hope you have a safe trip home. All best wishes, Adrian.
  10. Thanks for suggestions. Took drawer out completely, clever neighbour remounted runners further forward on drawer sides - making sure it closed - drawer now opens just over half way. Sorted.
  11. Another fascinating blog. Thank you, keep them coming.
  12. The cutlery drawer on our VIP 565 does not open very far, which means it is virtually impossible to see beyond the front 1/3rd of the drawer. Does anyone know if there is a simple way to reposition the runners on the drawer sides, so as to enable a fuller opening.
  13. AS always an informed and informative read! Thank you, again!
  14. Ah, that is news to me! nothing mentioned in the handbook, If it has the battery pack of which you speak, can I get at it and is it possible to replace or renew? Just found a Thetford video. It shows the battery pack etc. and I now know my model does not have this pack.
