  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hi The wardens at Tintagel are quite happy to allow members to pitch nose in to enjoy the magnificent views 500 th post Sandy
  7. Hi The club state 350,000 households are registered as members Sandy
  8. 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
  9. At last something to look forward too a freebie from the CMC. Will continue to post as I am closing in to 500 Sandy
  10. There isn't even a discount for canceling the self praising crapazine S
  11. Sorry to disagree the organisation is no longer a club ran by members for members. It in now a commercial enterprise which pays no attention to its members and their interests. Sandy
  12. Hi Last year the club raked in £15.6 million in membership fees up on the previous year less members but an increase in fees. I found it strange the club have stated that this year's increase is for added site costs such as staff and electricity. Any commercial enterprise normally treats each of its services individual and prices affordably . I don't think membership fees should be used to subsidise other parts of the business. On the issue of electricity charges the club crapazineactually mentions some inconsiderate members and how they waste electricity siting the use of heaters in their awnings. Sandy
  13. Hi Club membership is for members to gain access to the club services and should not be used to subsidise other activities. I have my insurance through the club and mayday both of which make a profit for the club and with both the service is excellent. Other services also make a profit such as ferry bookings. The Club likes to forward itself as a membership club but is really a commercial operation ran with no regard to the people who pay their yearly subscriptions. I will remain a member this year for mayday ,insurance and the use of cls but in the future I will probably not renew membership and use the CCC which i am a member with discount for being paperless Sandy
  14. The cost of electricity has stabilized over the last year. Also why should membership fees increase to subsidise utilities etc this should be included in site fees as this is where the said increases have occured. Sandy
  15. Hi just read in the club crapazine that membership fees are going up to £54. With last year's reduction in membership they have to raise fees to compensate. This is also on top of the recently announced increase in site fees. I wonder if this is the straw which will break the camel's back and lead to a further reduction in membership. Sandy
