  1. No it is not the neighbours pitch but it is that little bit of green in front of the awning that sometimes makes caravaning a bit more enjoyable.
  2. Your neighbour there has a nice piece of grass in front of his awning where he can sit out with his table and chairs etc. I imagine so do you in front of your awning. Why should your neighbour have to put up with your vehicle parked next to his awning. Your vehicle should be across the front of your van. To my mind you are just being selfish, a touch of I,m alright jack.
  3. I also had a problem with this blind on my 2016 Conqueror. Advised no to leave it closed for long periods (thinks what is the blind for?). I notice that the blinds on newer models have smaller pleats.
  4. Having just yesterday returned after three weeks in Australia I would say that most Australian caravans are too heavy for the vehicle towing them. Australian caravan, most with twin axles, heavy duty chassis must weigh well over two tons. The largest towing vehicles seem to be large SUVs or double cab utes, Shoguns, Toyota Landcruisers etc. For the most they get away with any mismatch dute to the fact they have miles and miles of roads with no bends only coming to grief when overtaking.
  5. When you pick up your car pop in to your local caravan dealer and get them to check out your electrics with their test set 2011 caravan it is possible that it will have halogen bulbs.
  6. Borussia 1900. Missiles and Hebrides reminds me of 94LR
  7. Update. Left caravan hooked up to towing vehicle overnight. Problem cleared. Thanks for all your help.
  8. Having fitted the VLM4 I now have a permanent red on the ATC indicator. I left the van connected overnight but did not clear. As yet have not checked under the van re pushrod. Any thoughts?
  9. Fitted. Just a case of connecting the extra leads into the normal VLM4 leads.
  10. Anyone had experience fitting a Sargent VLM4E to their caravan? The photo sent to me by Sargent shows the leads but more complicated than the basic VLM4.
  11. I did ask what site the lady is on but got no reply. There is a small site listed in The Reddings in Cheltenham. I am only five miles from Cheltenham and Golden Castle is my local dealer.
  12. Could be the charger cooking the battery. This happened with my Lunar Clubman. Which site are you on? Near Cotswold Motorcaravans?
  13. Without going back through the replies, I don't know if anyone has pointed out that the battery is not a leisure battery but a normal car battery
