    Which Towbar for Mazda CX5?

    I had a Westfalia detachable tow bar fitted to my 175bhp AWD Sport in 2013. I used a local fitter in Stockport and they attached it to the canbus. It cost me £510. If Mazda had fitted it they would have used the same firm and then added their own profit margin.

    Which Towbar for Mazda CX5?

    When you order the towbar make sure that you specify that you have an Alko stabilizer and need the appropriate tow ball. If it is a detachable towbar I think that most, if not all, are compatible. If the software needs updating then the garage should do that as part of the fitting. I think that the software on my CX5 was updated but can't remember for sure. It is unusual for Mazda to be able to fit a tow bar for less than a specialist fitter. Are you comparing like for like?

    Clubman television connection

    Yes. This is how I have my TV working at Cirencester. As above, you will need some adapters depending upon what connector the bollard offers.

    Draining Alde fluid.

    My clubman had a black tube with a brass plug at the rear in the middle. My Delta has the same underneath the near side rear window.

    Lunar Delta TI 2015 - Lighting switches

    In my 2016 TS there are two switches to the left of the door (as you look out of the caravan) under the bottle holders, one is for the illuminated grab handles and the other the ceiling lights. There are two switches next to the spot light under the cupboard to the right of the door which operate the mood lighting and two square lights in the corners. There are two switches near the sink, one for the sink mood lighting and the other the outside light over the battery box.

    Tyre pressures when towing

    What car and what caravan? My Sorento does not need an increase in pressure my Mondeo suggested an increase but it towed perfectly well without. My Lunar Clubman was 54psi, my Lunar Delta is 45psi. Check your manual or search on line.

    thinking about new clubman si ?

    Three Lunars in the past 6 years and no major problems, yet! Few owners post on forums and it is usually only those with a problem that complain. You really see a post commenting positively on any caravan. Therefore you are reading the concerns of only a small percentage of owners.

    Lunar Delta RI

    My last three vans have been Lunars. A Quasar, followed by a Clubman and now a Delta TS. I have been very happy with them all. The Delta has had a new Truma water inlet, due to overtightened screws cracking the inlet (a common fault if you read other threads) but no other major issues. Check for hairline cracks in the plastic surrounding screws securing external lockers etc. The Delta is very comfortable and very well equipped. It tows very well.

    Pushing the limit..

    The CX5 is a great towcar. I had the manual version of your model. Twin axles are more stable than single axles. As above, the 85% ratio is only a recommendation and considered outdated by many given modern driving and towing aids.

    Clubman Sr - Should I Or Shouldn’t I ?

    On my third lunar in the past 6 years and all have been reliable. Some minor snagging issues but nothing major. I find that they are well built, comfortable and, in my opinion, better designed than Bailey. Why worry about 85%? It is just a recommendation. Both clubs state that up to 100% is fine for experienced towers.

    Lunar Delta Coat Hooks

    Not sure what the design is in a Delta of your age, but I purchased a soap dish for my 2016 Delta from John Lewis. I use liquid soap and the pump fits into the bowl of the soap dish.

    Front Windows Cracked On Cosmos 462

    Goo back to your dealer and see what they say. They will have contacts within Lunar who will be able to identify of the repairs have been done, no doubt by using the CRiS number. You could also try Lunar yourself and see what response you get, but they are not known for their customer service according to some caravan forums.

    Advice Please On Lunar Clubman

    I have had three Lunars in recent years, a Quasar, Clubman SB and now a Delta TS. All had minor issues but none leaked. The SB was a great caravan. Very comfortable, well equipped and certainly warm enough with Alde heating. The Delta is very similar in layout but with a bit more room in the lounge and washroom. I have not regretted buying either of them.

    On my 2016 Delta the electrics are under the right hand front seat next to the EHU inlet. You will not see a separate charger, it is all integrated. Your first check will need to be that the fuses and/or circuit breakers are OK.

    Sink Infill Worktop

    I purchased some worktop from Kenmore caravans, http://www. kenmorecaravans. co. uk, which I used to make an extension flap for my Clubman. At that time they had an ebay shop. Many Lunar sinks are a similar size so you might be able to purchase a piece of work surface for your sink that is standard equipment on a different model.
