  1. We had a bladder go on us, I contacted Kampa who despatched one and it was at the CL the next day. Very good service.
  2. I had a screw come through the caravan wall. Called in Chips Away, fantastic match, very pleased with service. £110.
  3. We have a Luner fitted with a Dometic toilet, there is two problems I have encountered with this CTW4050 model. First the flush is inadaquate, it only reaches halfway around the bowl, I have heard there is a pump upgrade but I am unable to ascertain if we have the later pump fitted. Second, to enable deposits to enter the waste tank you pull a handle on the front of the toilet below the seat, this lever allows a blade to open and this needs needs constant lubrication. I would seriously consider trying to remedy what you have, as someone said , leave Thetford to make toil
  4. We have caravanned for a good many years and always used an outside source of water. It was not until our latest caravan that in the price was an in-line direct feed hose with a pressure reducer fitted. On the rare occasion of using this on CLs with pitches with your own water supply it was used to good effect until one year we found that the pressure was poor, the tap pressure was good, put the aqaroll out, the submersible pump worked well, so I assumed therewas a blockage in the direct feed pipe, took it apart, no blockage, but once assembled it appeared we had a higher pressure in t
  5. Yes a Merry Christmas to one and all, and a Happy New Year. I hope your touring days next year turn out to be good ones.

  7. We had an air pole fail whilst in a CL in Wiltshire and Kampa sent a new one to the CL which we received the next day. Very good service.
  8. That is correct Jim, but when you arrive at a site you need to plug in your hook-up cable (if you have mains on site) and change the fridge to mains or run it on gas.
  9. Jimbo I don't know if you are aware that regarding car electrics your caravan fridge will take its power from the 12S socket (white cover) but it should only be wired so that you get power when the ignition is on. Also there should be a relay fitted in your wiring system that will not allow the fridge to be powered until your car battery has been charged. Good Luck
  10. Hello Phil, We have a Clubman SB with an Ace Air 400. There is a gap of 100 mm between the rear of the window and the front of the door. we find the Ace Air can be erected without hindering the door or window, it is very tight but it does not impede opening the widow or the door. Our awning is a 2017 model and I do know there have been a few modifications, hope that helps.
  11. There is no doubt that Tracker, Phantom and all the devices for locating your caravan are a good idea. The problem is, who is going to look for your van when there is not enough police to go around now.
  12. Bite the bullet and look at taking your B+E course & test. not only will you gain the new licence, but the information gleaned from the instructor is very beneficial.
  13. We are now into our third season using a Kampa Ace Air Pro 400, condensation has been minimal, although we do ventilate the awning all day & at night. It is heavier pulling it through the awning channel but we now remove the front and rear doors which makes it easier. Having been through seven poled awnings in our caravaning years I don't think we will return to them.

    We have a Next Base 202 which I find the instructions not very explanatory, however whilst waiting in the car outside our daughters house I watched a very dubious vehicle with three creatures inside, driver got out and pretended to check front of car whilst looking at two houses. Gotcha I thought, but before advising police I downloaded the footage onto my laptop only to find it was too dark to see anything. Since then I have had Halfords turn up one of the gizmos to give a brighter picture.
