  1. I have to admit I did let out a little giggle when I read your post - I have often thought the same myself (perhaps not in so much detail!). Ours is Challenging somebody to something - lord alone knows what? Our last caravan had a one horned mythical animal on an uninhabited spanish islet in the Balearics - not quite sure how those two got together!?
  2. I assume if you just want the barrel that these will fit.... https://cccampers.myshopify.com/products/fawo-water-filler-cap-2-x-keys-barrel-set-also-fit-swift-bailey-caravan-door-locks
  3. as said, check insurance, ours specifically precludes anyone other than us using the caravan....
  4. A lot can really be down to the car. We had a Citroen C5 which had lovely comfortable suspension solo, but hook it up to a caravan and it wallowed as a result. Changed to an Insignia Sri with sports suspension and was firmer solo, but smooth as anything towing.
  5. Wonder if they were filling an LPG cylinder/tank?
  6. Alko no longer lend the taps out, despite their website saying they will. I know, as I had to buy a tap after asking them to borrow theirs and they said that pople didn't return them, so they no longer loaned them. It is possible to cross thread! (usually in the cold and rain like me!) Easily fixed with the right tap...

  8. Just seen this on the BBC website, heartfelt thoughts go out to all those affected.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-48103727
  9. not true - they appoint an independent engineer. We had this when we rejected our Elddis..
  10. I don't think it's intelligent enough to vary the force, it simply applies it when it detects adverse movement AFAIK.
  11. Thanks for all the replies! I'll sort out my cable now as the last step in my project!
  12. Check the system shutdown switch is set to the "on" position on the mains charger, as without this, 12v won't work at all.
  13. Can I just add to the glowing reviews of Paul from Tourershine, he's done two of our vans now (one we rejected six months after he did it as it started falling apart!!) and he does a remarkable job and makes them look like brand new. Well worth every penny!
  14. OK, so going to do some jobs on my van and add things like an offside awning light and low level 12v lighting. I'm competent at doing electrics (before anyone starts) but don't know how to calculate what size wire to use. If it was 240V I'd know exactly what wire to use for what situation! Is there a formula for 12V electrics to determine the right cable size to use?
