  3. Caravans have been prohibited from going either up or down Sutton Bank since May 1984 as the steep gradient and hairpin bend makes it dangerous for caravans and HGV's. There is an alternative route signposted through Coxwold and Ampleforth for banned vehicles.[7] In

  6. Don't know about your van but in mine (Pemberton Verona) the pelmets were held on by long velco strips
  7. Putting in thicker carpets will help as the cold strikes through the floor very easily, particularly if there is no skirting around the van. If this is not too easily done as it is not a good idea to lay new carpet over existing what about getting some good quailty thick rugs to cover most of the floors
  8. As far as I am aware the site owner is not legally allowed to insist you use one particular decking installation company, they should have several approved contactors for you to obtain quotes from. Many parks insist on certain products, manufacturers or companies to supply and erect decking. We have always said that this type of requirement is unfair and restrictive. This opinion is shared by the OFT in its Guidance on Unfair Terms in Holiday Caravan Agreements (OFT 734) where it states:
  9. It is a good idea to put antifreeze/concentrated screen wash in all the U bends, particularly the shower U bend as this is outside thehcaravan, also dose the toilet bowl the same a s his does not drain
  10. It is recommended by tyre manufacturers that new tyres should be fitted to the rear The tyre industry recommends fitting the new tyres onto the rear axle. This will provide greater grip to the rear axle and mitigate any potential oversteer condition or loss of vehicle stability on slippery surfaces.
  11. Just remenber to take the L plate off the car when you have pitched the van as it is illegal to drive a car with L plates on if only the driver is in the car and is not a professional driving instructor. If you are both in the car no one would know that the driver is not a learner
  12. Is the small piece at the top of the light removable? my van (Pemberton) has a similar light fastened by two screws, the small pieces at the top and bottom are removable by placing a small blade or screwdriver behind and sliding away from the van to expose the fastening screws.

  14. It may be a good idea to leave yourself a note in the van reminding you all the taps are open so you remember to close them before turning the water back on, after turning the water back on just partially open the cold water taps one by one to get rid of the air in the system. It is advisable to remove the thermostatic valve on the shower as just leaving the taps open will not empty the cassette in the valve, this is quite easy to do, just undo the two large nuts where the valve is fastened to the incoming pipes. The U bend for the shower is generally outside the van under the shower tray and
