  1. I would say this is a factory order - try Elddis customer services. Have you tried your dealer?
  2. Lots of Elddis motor homes and caravans on the CMC sites last week, probably over 30% so must be selling well. Not sure if any of the other makes are any better though But would I buy one, no.
  3. It is for the microwave, sometimes they are on the side of the van behind the microwave as well
  4. Just been to Clumber Park and Tewksbury. Clumber about 10 pitches left and Tewksbury full all week.
  5. Yes if its the chrome one with black surround
  6. Most dealers are like this, sales good, service side can be a pain, especially now as they are so busy. The dealer should be able to service the van and keep the waranty, but best check with Elddis Customer Services first to see how much time you have to get it done. This is from CT at the top of the Elddis page - http://www.elddis.co.uk/hub/article/550/servicing-your-vehicle The next question is if Elddis are OK with the timescale, who will pay for the service, as I bet the dealer will not want to. If not then you should reject as the van was sold with a false description, i.e remaining Elddis warranty and FSH. THe fridges stand all winter in storage so leaving it will not cause any issues. Looks like no PDI done and a sloppy handover which is not uncommon.
  7. Oh no they dont. Well I think they dont Just renewed yesterday and this was in the attachment. So I read this as not needing a lock when on a site, in secure storage or when attached to a car being towed.
  8. I think Eversure dont need a wheel lock when on site. They are members on here. They only state a wheel lock and hitch lock to be used (to sold secure gold std) when not on a site or in storage but you could ask them to make sure
  9. Is the Buccaneer Galera 6 berth with bunks at the rear, a large center dinette and large front benches. Not available new, but am sure there will be plenty of nearly new ones. The Avante 866 is the same layout but again now discontinued. The Avante 868 is a french bed/twin bunks version which is new and would suit. The Avante range has blown air heating rather than the Alde, but are alot of van for the money.
  10. Customer care telephone number will be on the website.
  11. Management decision has been made so we back off to River Breamish. The dog is just coming off season and I know the walks around River Breamish so makes life easier for me and there's the shop/petrol station at the end of the road for essentials. The attraction with Nunnykirk is the price and I love grass pitches rather than hardstanding, so £15 per night compared to £30 next week for River Breamish looks good value. Lack of facilities is not a problem as we use our own mainly, but it looks a little isolated. Maybe try it next summer.
  12. Any views on Nunnykirk campsite. Looking at River Breamish as we have been there before but wondered what Nunnykirk area is like.
  13. You could use the 2 spare ports on the LNB to run the freesat box. I have a Humax box which can run on 1 input
  14. Do you have to be a member to buy their travel insurance? I cant see this on the web site. I know you have to be a member of the CMC to buy Red Pennant which I usually use, but with the cost increases looking for something more economical. Tried Staysure but was even more expensive than RP due to age and pre existing conditions
  15. I hope they gave you free tea and pizza on Sunday at the dealers (and the free drinks holders). Sat Nav did the same to me on the way to Castleton in Sept, and the motor movers saved the day. Luckily it was nice and dry.
