  1. Hi my 2017 Clubman contains many of the parts which are used on the Alaria. I have had no problems up to press with any of the windows. However check for damp around the front windows it is a known problem but fortunately not on my Clubman. I have had four brand new Lunars only one had any damp and that was on a Solaris around the toilet filling hatch Sandy
  2. Hi when I took my Clubman in for its third service the guy who did the job said the first place they check for damp on Lunar vans is around the front windows. He said it was a known issue with Lunar. Saying that my Clubman was fine with no damp issues Sandy
  3. Hi Interesting article in today's Daily Mail in reference to oximeters. It states some doctors are asking for them to be available on prescription as some Covid patients are suffering blood oxygen levels as low as 50%. Also a medical practice in the North East has a hit squad that goes around to potential victims armed with oximeters with the patient taking their own readings guided by a doctor. Sandy
  4. Hi I purchased an oximeter before going climbing in the Himalayas as I was going to quite a high altitude and I was worried about HAPE. The device was useful in monitoring oxygen levels in the blood and I hoped it would give ample warning of altitude sickness. I purchased mine off e-bay and it worked well and it was reassuring to know that all the time I was at altitude my blood oxy level never dropped below 95%. I found the device was easy to use and if the research is accurate it may indicate the user has a problem if levels suddenly start dropping and further medical advice is needed. Sandy
  5. You must also tell you insurance of any modifications made to the car including a tow bar. This is shown on the documentation I received from my insurer's Sandy
  6. Hi One of the great failings of the cc booking system is the popular sites fill up quickly. There is still a significant number of members who book slots on these sites on the on the chance they may turn up and if the weather looks a bit grim they can cancel two days before the are due to go. I have got on Rowntree Park by phoning the site the day before arrival and got a cancellation and this was at a weekend. The warden at Castleton once told me a member from Sheffield booked every summer weekend and only turned up for one. The Club don't see this as an issue and are quite willing to allow some selfish members to abuse the booking system to the detriment of the majority. Sandy
  7. On a lighter note I have had years of self isolation when I walk down the street people cross over to the other side of the road, I have even heard people say let's hide Sandy is comming. I've also had people move caravan pitch when they realise I am next to them. Sandy
  8. Hi Damp was found in my Daughters Baily caravan on its 3rd service not by the supplying dealer but an approved workshop. The repair was done under warranty by a Baily dealer without any problems. Explain this to your dealer and ask them to approach Baily and ask if they will honour the warranty. Sandy
  9. Hi If it the hinge on the door itself a new door can be ordered and the infill and lock removed from the old door and fitted to the new one. The door is removed by tapping out the hinge pins. If the box itself is damaged you will probably have to buy the full unit of course fitting the door infill and lock on the new box Sandy
  10. Hi I had the battery box on my 2017 Clubman replaced due to a crack in the surround. Campbell's caried out the repair while I waited. They had to cut the old box out as it was screwed and glued with a product similar to Silkafix and it was a sod to remove. So if any member tries to remove the locker be prepared to completely destroy the cracked locker to get it out. Sandy
  11. Hi Just had my Clubman in for its third service and it came back with a clean bill of health. Obviously pleased there were no problems as it was a concern over the new owners of Lunar and the warranty on vans up to three years old. Talking of warranty the only issue in three years was a cracked battery box locker replaced by Campbells while I waited. My service workshop have put a claim into Alko for squeaky brakes but at the present i don't know the outcome of the claim. If it is rejected I will put up with the squeak. Happy Lunar owner Sandy
  12. Hi My wife and I have been to Anecy twice an I would suggest you look at what the locals call the sunny side of the lake the east shore. It catches more sun than the west side also it is great for a walk scramble up the Dent great views over the lake and mountains and it is strange to look down on circling para gliders. It is also quieter than the west side. If you enjoy climbing there a number of road side crags to play upon. Sandy
  13. Hi The wardens at Tintagel are quite happy to allow members to pitch nose in to enjoy the magnificent views 500 th post Sandy
  14. Hi The club state 350,000 households are registered as members Sandy
  15. I would agree it's a matter of personal choice I am a member for the commercial services it offers. But read the comments about issues such as rebranding and it confirms my opinion that the club does not really care about its members and their opinions. Two post to go to reach 500 Sandy
