  1. FWIW, Adria will give you a spare wheel and wheel brace with your new Isonzo but they don't give you any sort of jack and don't fit the AL-KO chassis receiver for that type of jack. IIRC, you'll need a no.19 AL-KO lock if that's the way you want to go.
  2. LR Discovery + Inos with all the goodies .
  3. "Repairing delaminated floor"
  4. Two very good Adria Facebook groups that will give many personal experiences and advice, much more than on CT unfortunately. As an Adria Adora owner, they're generally better built, more solid feeling but not without their faults as our 12 month experience in a new 'van has flagged up the poor Reich plumbing push fittings - 6 leaks in 10 months .
  5. Had a Truma Aventa Comfort fitted today by Truma to our 2019 Adria Adora Thames. Unit had to go in the rear bedroom skylight as Adria changed the roof construction a while back and 30-35kg is too heavy for the roof to support in the kitchen area. Third party installers are still fitting them in the kitchen area without reference to Adria drawings but Truma had the common sense to contact Adria . Will be watching out for any rattles or vibrations when the 'van's back on its seasonal pitch on Friday.
  6. FWIW, I always take a look at the underwriter's credentials on any new insurance. Forget how good the provider or the broker is, they don't underwrite the policy. JMO .
  7. We had a 62 plate Santa Fe and more recently, two Rexton W's. The Rextons towed our 1800kg Delta Ti like a dream but for the 99% of the time solo, it was like driving a barge. Roundabouts and twisty B-roads needed caution to prevent wallowing. Poor dealer coverage and high insurance made us look elsewhere, so changed to a VX Insignia ST and then last month, a 200hp 2.2 diesel Jeep Cherokee. On the plus side, great boot space in the Rexton .
  8. Daewoo microwaves . Measure the size, throw it away and pop down the high street or retail parks and invest in a normal domestic type one. We had three Daewoo models give up in 6 months in a brand new 'van. Now have a Sanyo (looks like a Sharp) that's easier to use than the Daewoo and has lasted 4 years .
  9. Whilst Pump King was useful for us when it came to discounted pump prices, the 6p a litre off now makes it not worthwhile. Having spent £1000+ with PK in last 12 months, I'll be going back to my local Texaco garage which are cheaper than Fuelpecker but still not in the same league as the supermarkets. Fuelpecker's loss, heh ho .
  10. Good heads up guys as the email I got went to spam folder. Now I know it's genuine, I'll sign up to Fuelpecker 👍.
  11. Should have a VIN chip but the windows these days aren't etched. Instead, they use stickers which are useless as they can peel off. So any body that steals a 'van simply has to remove the stickers and sell the windows on as parts .
  12. We use a Meaco DD8L Junior in our 2019 Adria. Our previous Delta had more vents at floor level, no overnight condensation but extremely cold around the feet. The Adria has less ventialtion and as a result, a lot on condensation on the windows when we wake up. But after an hour of using the Meaco, the windows are clear. Also means we can cook on the hob with little condensation issues. Yes, we could crack the windows open but all we get are more cold draughts. Also find that because the Meaco kicks out 600w of warm air, we find that the Alde can run at a much lower room temp., thus saving us £s on our metered seasonal pitch. Meaco also gets used to dry clothes and towels in the bathroom to great effect. So for us, it a big thumbs up for using a dehumidifier, the results speak for themselves.
  13. What kelper said, But not necessarily mandatory on boats. With the Boat Safety Scheme (BSS), if a BSS tester isn't gas certified/qualified, then he can test for leakage if a bubble tester is fitted, If he's certified, then a bubble tester isn't required. We run a fleet of 32 narrow boats and as we have a two gas certified staff, then bubble testers aren't required for leakage when doing disconnection or modifications to the LPG gas system. Confusing at the best of times lol .
