  1. I used bubble wrap with the foil backing, held in place with cable ties and insulation tape, used his on current and previous caravans.
  2. Spoke to my dealer today and he suggested the same, but unable to see sensor or magnet, he advised it was under the control panel but can not see it, any ideas ?
  3. Do you know where , not concerned about outfit but the delay in time as have just under 300 miles to cover on Saturday, leaving at 03.30 so hopefully they will be tucked up in bed, Ancona
  4. Only tried on electric as struggling to get gas,but that's another story, have adjusted catch to centre position and still the same, away for a week from early Sat am so as long as not beeping will have to put up with the warning symbol, am waiting for dealer to e-mail me so hopefully they will get me try something , will keep you posted as and when,Ancona
  5. Have adjusted catch to the rear most position and seal looks tight all the way round the door, if I pull back the seal when the door is closed the light is off.
  6. Hello all, have a 2018 Sprite and turned on fridge a couple of days ago ready for the weekend, keep getting 3 beeps x 33 with the warning symbol, press the on/ off button clears fault and fault reoccurs with no set pattern, fridge not connected to command, have removed front control unit and disconnected, unplugged white muliplug behind fridge vent either both at the same time or individually or both at the same time, removed the catch checked for moisture , set catch to rear most position, checked light not staying on, and still the same, on the plus side fridge nice and cold just the beeps and warning symbol. Any ideas please Ancona The Domentic RMS8558 is the model number
  7. Have a 2018 Sprite and looking for advice on how to stop the shower head from sliding down the rail as can not see any screws, needs to be adjusted due to varying family heights, thanks in advance for your replies. Ancona
  8. If you don't me asking why did it take so long, I had 7 or 8 sets of cushions with no or little improvement in 2 years and was advised no more, so after 2 weekends away earlier in the year decided could not face another season with the dreamsleep system so now own a nice and comfortable Swift after 7 new Baileys it's a shame Bailey do not listen to their customers. Ancona
  9. Hi alll, now the happy owner of a Swift, nice comfortable well built caravan, touch wood not had to get out a screw driver yet or report a fault, that make a pleasant change. Ancona
  10. Lost count 7 or 8 sets of cushions and still slip,uncomfortable hard and baggy, did 2 weekends earlier in the year and decided could not face another season with the awful dream sleep system, so Swift are the winners in this instance, now enjoying a comfortable well built caravan. Ancona
  11. Took the Peg 4 Rimini in for the second service and a couple of minor warranty jobs, had a call from the dealer as they had found the roof bar to be letting in moisture, no real shock as a known concern, but the most alarming news was the rear washroom floor was damp and had a reading of 63. This has been traced to the shower leaking, was very surprised as we have not seen any signs of damp at all. Still at dealers as drying out then reselling the shower. When ready will try and get more information on the leak. At least on a positive note the dealer has done a thorough service. Ancona
  12. Mine are the same the replacements lost count 4th or 5th set are the same but am waiting yet another set of replacements as the fabric has come un stuck on the underside leading edge, have requested an upgrade to the Unicorn style or to have the same style as cushion we had in our 2012 Ancona but basically been told tough no more cushions and that's Baileys response via the dealer, not sure what to do next will decide after get the new ones. Usually change van around 2-3 years old and now had 7 new Baileys since 2000 so if do not get a satisfactory out come may starting looking at other brands, unless the dream sleep system is dropped, so much for Brand loyalty. Ancona
  13. Currently towing with a 2010 Sorento Kx2, looking to change and found a 2014 Sorento Kx1, can cope without the leather and privacy glass as the rest of the spec is virtually the same. My issue is it's not got self levelling rear suspension as the last two Sorento's have had it I am looking for advice. Ancona
  14. Looks like the wooden board is missing from under the cushion, the stitch mark that also does not line up seems to be what we are expected to put up with I think not, if everyone keeps complaining may eventually get an acceptable fix, Anocona
  15. Removed our hitch lock at the weekend prior to leaving site and out fell 1/2 of the front friction pad managed to get it back in place to travel home, probably explains the creaking on the last couple of trips, happened on an 18 month old Bailey waiting for warranty claim to go through, never had this issue in the past so makes me wonder what's going on as I have now heard of 3 similar cases.
  16. Had a shock today when removing the Hitchlock to travel home, on removing the lock part of the front friction pad fell out, managed to get it back in place so we could travel home, never had an issue previously so not sure what caused it to break, probably explains the creaking we have had on the last few outings, van now 18 months old warranty ? Any one had this happen before and any idea on the cause, as a precaution will change the tow ball but all looks ok. Ancona
  17. As expected exactly the same as all of the previous cushions with this being the fourth set, e-mail sent to dealer and Bailey, dealer have replied but no reply from dealer, will advise on outcome when known, not holding out much hope on ever getting this resolved. Ancona
  18. Collected the Rimini today, complete new set of cushions including the back rests and bulkhead cushions, base cushion stitching now lines up, have just had a quick sit on them and they are as hard as a park bench, does not appear to be a difference in the foam from the old ones so not holding out much hope will update after half term. Ancona
  19. Been looking back at the e-mail trail and looks like the order was placed late February, long story but Belfield wanted the cushions back for inspection but due to caravan commitments we dug in our heels as we did not want to miss out on weekends away so declined. Lots of correspondence with the dealer and Bailey, the decision was made to replace with new. Watch this space. Will advise on the outcome,. Due to collect Saturday so will advise,Ancona
  20. Taking mine back to the dealer at the weekend for the 3rd set of cushions, apparently these are the modified ones I should have supplied earlier,in the year, current set to go back to Belfield for investigation, not holding out much hope from past experience will advise once we're back from the 1/2 term break. Ancona
  21. Had a 2010 Ranger towed by by a 2006 Sorento, numerous front windows, 2016. Pegasus towed by 2010 Sorento 1 trip to Cornwall new front window all down to touch marks, the Ranger eventually had a modified window with a bigger air gap, will wait and see what happens after trip to Cornwall this year not holding out much hope as air gap the same. Did have a 2012 Pegasus towed with both cars and no issues so do not think it's an issue with tow car, it's down to the air gap not being big enough,it's about time the caravan manufactures learn from past mistakes, don't seem to get any problems with my tow car and that does 13k a year and not 3k like the caravan which always seams to be at the dealers. Ancona
  22. Heard back from dealer, going to send Bailey customer services a copy of my e-mail, watch this space. I do not see why any of us should have to pay to upspec as the dream sleep system is not fit for purpose, £600 of my money would go towards a new van, least I could justify that. Will be stamping my feet on the Bailey stand at the Nec. Ancona
