  1. I have received an e-mail from the Passport office. ''Prior to 10 September 2018,if passport holders renewed their previous passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to their new passports expiry date, making it valid for more than 10 years. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the six months that should be remaining for travel.''
  2. The gov. website says- On the day you travel youll need your passport to both have at least 6 months left, be less than 10 years old, The gov. check tool, apparently, uses the date your passport was issued Not the length of its validity ! or the date of its expire
  3. In to-days paper there is an information page which says ' Check your passport. and it gives a 'gov' web-address. This says you need 6 months time left on your passport if you travel to EU after 31 October. Also a passport less than 10 year old ( even it has 6 months left ! ) We are on holiday in November , and our passports are 10 year old in April next year (after we return !) even though they expire in September The site still says it is out of date ! Perhaps they need the extra £75-50's
  4. What does one do with used awnings when 'retiring' from caravanning ?
  5. I have had a 'metal' aorta valve for 32 years , my holiday insurance is via Camping & caravanning club/Intana. They have been brilliant over the years.A' multi-trip' ins. has been better - if you holiday often in the same year. Car insurance ask ' DVLA informed? no problem.' I have ,of course , been on warfarin ever since.
  6. You have to press and hold the 'buttons' until there is enough heat for the thermocouple to 'take-over'. What gas are you using ? Butane will 'freeze' about 2 degrees. (blue bottle) Propane is normally OK in cold weather ( red bottle)

    Water pumps

    reasonably sure it is the pressure switch that needs adjusting. There can be a difference between mains and battery power. The pump should run for about 8 seconds after the tap is turned off.
  10. The 'trapezium ' was argued to be a 'grey' area at one time. It was not part of the towbar as such, as it was bolted onto it -as a towball. I still have mine -in the shed !. I found it to be great. The towball could be swung side-to-side to help in hooking-up. I think mine had a Swiss plate on it,
  11. That is why I go to a builders merchant for my gas ( even then with blinkers on !)
  12. Another thought, there is a relay which cuts off the 12 v. supply when the 'van is being towed by the car and 'hooked up, to the car It is usually near the connections, where the cables enter, under the seats at the front.
  13. Here is a typical wiring diagram for a caravan. 2002 Lunar handbook When the mains electric is plugged in the 12 volt equipment should be usable. If you have the switches in the correct position, it may be your power supply unit at fault. but your 12v. battery items should still work off the battery. Scan_20180627.pdf
  14. I think that a lead to hook-up the car to the 'van would be a good stand -bye. Be wary if you have an automatic gearbox
