  1. This shows the mirror array to cover the right side of our outfit. Between them they cover what is normally a blind spot below the side window, give a view of both front and rear wheels, allow the driver to see what is in the adjacent lane, and the rear corner of the outfit and what is behind. A similar arrangement is on the left , and when supplemented with a rear camera give a full all round view of the vehicle and the trailer. This show the location of the rear camera on our outfit This is the rear camera view under normal light conditions. When hitched the car trailer appears in the foreground but with a significant amount of road behind still in the picture.
  2. Just a few thoughts:- We have a camera on the rear wall of our MH that gives a good view of anything in what's normally a blind spot immediately behind the vehicle. The same would be true if fitted to a caravan. A camera in that location however will never be able to see what is beside the caravan or MH ahead of the rear wall. I don't know if the vehicle you mention is type approved for towing but the legal requirement to see along both sides of a caravan/trailer, maybe addressed by fitting a pair of additional cameras to the front corners of the caravan/trailer that look to the rear along each side, and output to a display in the towcar. Absolutely spot on Andy. I consider a rear wall mounted camera as a good safety addition but in no way do I think of it as a replacement for appropriate side mirrors. I can only speak for a camera mounted high (about 9'6") on our MH rear wall. It gives an excellent view in good weather conditions but it's next to useless in rain as spray is attracted to the lens like a magnet, similarly in misty conditions when condensation forms on the lens. Setting it to a night view improves the situation as the image is then formed by looking in the UV spectrum - but it is still a poor second to having a clean lens.
  3. Press release New package to support and enforce self-isolation People will be required by law to self-isolate from 28 September, supported by payment of £500 for those on lower incomes who cannot work from home and have lost income as a result. New fines for those breaching self-isolation rules will start at £1,000 – bringing this in line with the penalty for breaking quarantine after international travel - but could increase to up to £10,000 for repeat offences and for the most egregious breaches, including for those preventing others from self-isolating. For example, this could include business owners who threaten self-isolating staff with redundancy if they do not come to work, sending a clear message that this will not be tolerated. A number of steps will be taken to make sure that people are complying with the rules, these include: NHS Test and Trace call handlers making regular contact with those self-isolating, with the ability to escalate any suspicion of non-compliance to Local Authorities and local police; Using police resources to check compliance in highest incidence areas and in high-risk groups, based on local intelligence; Investigating and prosecuting high-profile and egregious cases of non-compliance; and Acting on instances where third parties have identified others who have tested positive, but are not self-isolating. Recognising that self-isolation is one of the most powerful tools for controlling the transmission of Covid-19, this new Test and Trace Support payment of £500 will ensure that those on low incomes are able to self-isolate without worry about their finances. Just under 4 million people who are in receipt of benefits in England will be eligible for this payment, which will be available to those who are required to self-isolate from 28 September. Local Authorities will be working quickly to set up these self-isolation support schemes and we expect them to be in place by 12 October. Those who start to self-isolate from 28 September will receive backdated payments once the scheme is set up in their Local Authority. This financial support comes as the government places a legal requirement on people to self-isolate when instructed to by NHS Test and Trace and introduces tougher fines for breaking the rules. Many people are following the rules around self-isolation, but these steps will make sure more do and help ensure the public do not unknowingly spread the virus. The Prime Minister said: "The best way we can fight this virus is by everyone following the rules and self-isolating if they’re at risk of passing on coronavirus. And so nobody underestimates just how important this is, new regulations will mean you are legally obliged to do so if you have the virus or have been asked to do so by NHS Test and Trace." "People who choose to ignore the rules will face significant fines. We need to do all we can to control the spread of this virus, to prevent the most vulnerable people from becoming infected, and to protect the NHS and save lives." "And while most people are doing their absolute level best to comply with the rules, I don’t want to see a situation where people don’t feel they are financially able to self-isolate." "That’s why we’re also introducing a new £500 Test and Trace Support payment for those on low incomes who are required by NHS Test and Trace to remain at home to help stop the spread of the virus."

  5. But the camera would only be on if the lights were on - turn 'em off and no camera? It would be okay to use the high level marker light feed but much more logical to provide a dedicated fused supply from the car ignition circuit via the 12S or 13pin connector. With a little forethought, it really isn't that difficult to poke a wire up through the insulation behind a rear wall moulding using a sparky's draw tape, then route the wire (and earth return) to the a-frame junction. Before doing anything, I suggest running a temporary feed along the ground to the camera, to confirm it 'talks' to the monitor in the car from your chosen location, before making it a permanent feature.
  6. Given the age of your Cambrian (1985) you're probably best to look at caravan breakers such as SFM Caravans, or check the list of spares suppliers I've pinned at the head of this section. If you have the simple drop-lid locker front then these should be readily available in various sizes, however if you have the 'all plastic' locker front with the integral mains inlet then they will be a little harder to source.

  8. Guidance Coronavirus (COVID-19): getting tested Contents: Who can be tested The testing process Care homes List of essential workers and those prioritised for testing (England only) Notification of problem with Randox test kits You can get a swab test to check if you currently have coronavirus. This is part of the 5-pillar strategy for coronavirus testing. Testing is most effective within 3 days of symptoms developing. Who can be tested Anyone with symptoms can get a coronavirus test, whatever their age. Get a coronavirus test Once you’ve received a coronavirus home test kit, you must register it so that we can send your results to you. Register a home test kit Register a home test kit before a hospital procedure if your hospital arranged your test See the guidance below on testing for care home residents and workers. Employer referral for essential workers Employers can refer essential workers for testing if they are self-isolating because either they or member(s) of their household have coronavirus symptoms. They can do this by uploading the names and contact details of self-isolating essential workers to the secure employer referral portal. Referred essential workers will then receive a text message with a unique invitation code to book a test for themselves (if symptomatic) or their symptomatic household member(s) at a regional testing site. To get a login to the employer referral portal, employers of essential workers should email portalservicedesk@dhsc.gov.uk with the following information: organisation name nature of the organisation’s business region names (where possible) and email addresses of the 2 users who will load essential worker contact details Once employer details have been verified, 2 login credentials will be provided for the employer referral portal. See the list of essential workers below. The testing process The test involves taking a swab of the nose and the back of the throat, which can be done by the person themselves (self-administered) or by someone else (assisted). The different ways you can get tested are covered below. Test sites We’re establishing a network of drive-through and walk-through test sites. Watch a video explaining the process for drive-through testing: Coronavirus tests for essential workers Home testing Home test kits can be delivered to someone’s door so they can test themselves and their family without leaving the house. Home test kit availability will be initially limited, but more will become available. If you have been delivered a home testing kit or have been given a self-test kit at a regional test site, here is a tutorial video that supports the written instructions in your pack, from Dr Amir Khan: How to take a coronavirus self-test swab You can also read: the coronavirus home test: step-by-step guide (PDF, 12.1MB, 13 pages) the coronavirus test guide: how to test on a child (PDF, 471KB, 6 pages) Mobile testing units Mobile testing units travel around the UK to increase access to coronavirus testing. They respond to need, travelling to test essential workers at sites including care homes, police stations and prisons. New units are being brought into operation each day. Satellite centres NHS capability is being increased by providing test kits directly to ‘satellite’ centres at places like hospitals that have a particularly urgent or significant need. NHS facilities Testing within an NHS facility such as a hospital is available for patients and some NHS workers. Across all these testing methods, there is a network of couriers who collect the completed samples and deliver them safely to one of our laboratories. The swab samples are analysed at our labs and the result is communicated back to the individual. We aim to return test results within 48 hours of a swab being taken, or within 72 hours for a home test. Care homes England In England, all registered adult care homes can apply for coronavirus tests. You should contact your local Health Protection Team (HPT) if: you suspect your care home has a new coronavirus outbreak (one or more suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19) it has been 28 days or longer since your last case and you have new cases Your HPT will provide advice and arrange the first tests. See a graphic summarising testing for care homes (PDF, 60.2KB, 2 pages). For testing in other situations, you should apply for testing kits following the instructions below. Scotland In a care home where there is one or more confirmed case of coronavirus, the local health board must offer testing to all staff and residents regardless of symptoms as part of enhanced outbreak investigations. Testing will be organised by local health board testing teams, using local and NHS Scotland laboratory capacity. In a care home with no positive cases for 2 weeks or more, the local health board must offer testing to all staff on a weekly basis. Please follow the instructions below to access this routine testing of staff in your care home. Wales Existing arrangements include testing: all residents and staff of care homes with ongoing cases of COVID-19 and any home reporting a new outbreak larger care homes registered for 50 or more beds all people being discharged from hospital to live in care homes regardless of whether or not they were admitted to hospital with COVID-19 all people who are being transferred between care homes and for new admissions from the community This policy has been supplemented by a large-scale testing programme covering all residents and staff across care homes in Wales that have not reported an outbreak or any cases of coronavirus in the last 28 days. It’s being followed up through a weekly rolling programme to test care home staff. Wales’ policy for testing in care homes will continue to be reviewed and adapted as the scientific evidence changes How to test care home residents and workers You can apply for coronavirus testing kits to test the residents and/or staff of your care home. You can apply whether or not any of your residents or staff have coronavirus symptoms. Apply for coronavirus tests for a care home Regular testing in care homes (England) On 6 July, we started rolling out regular testing (retesting) for care homes in England. Retesting involves care homes testing staff weekly and residents every 28 days. Applications for retesting are now open for care homes caring for the over-65s and those with dementia. The remaining adult care homes will be able to register for retesting from 31 August. Any specialist care homes that have not yet registered for their initial whole care home tests should still apply on the care home portal to receive their initial whole care home tests. Care homes will need to re-register on the care home portal to apply for retesting. Applications for retesting are now open for care homes caring for the over-65s and those with dementia. See a graphic summarising testing for care homes (PDF, 60.2KB, 2 pages). Workers with symptoms Care home workers with symptoms should be self-isolating and can access testing through the self-referral or employer referral portals, above. Information about testing kits There are 2 types of test kits delivered to care homes: Randox test kits all other types, known as Kingfisher test kits The test kits look similar and test for whether someone currently has coronavirus in the same way. You will be told which test kits you will be using when you receive confirmation of your delivery. All of these kits are throat and nose swab tests and will tell a person whether they had coronavirus at the time the test took place. They cannot tell a person if they have had coronavirus in the past. Watch a video on how to administer nasal and throat swabs for residents: Coronavirus test tutorial for care homes with Dr Sarah Jarvis Carers and nurses who will be swabbing residents in care homes should complete the online care home swabbing competency assessment before carrying out swabbing. Individuals can register at www.genqa.org/carehomes or care home managers can create an organisational account by contacting info@genqa.org. Book your courier collection A courier will collect your used testing kits. These will be taken to a lab for processing. Book your courier collection by 7pm at least a day before carrying out testing. Carry out testing on the day of collection.

    Fabsil

    It's a fine product that works well but be aware that if you proof an awning or tent over grass, any spilt Fabsil will kill the grass, so take care or put temporary plastic sheeting down under the walls.
  11. Also, given that is your clean water inlet, it's worth giving the whole area a thorough cleaning, and also sterilising the pipework.
  12. Don't believe a word of it Iain - it just means you've either been a member a long time, or you talk a lot

    Saving Gas

    I think the point is that if the BBQ is hot,anyway, then why not use that heat efficiently. A charcoal BBQ will remain hot long after cooking has ended so why not pop a pot over the coals to warm some water - it can then be used to clean the pot again (only joking).

  15. I totally agree and always have extension mirrors when towing a wide caravan / trailer behind a car or truck. I also set the standard door mirrors to look slightly, down and further out, to look at the trailer wheels when on a tight turn. Unfortunately I have the opposite problem when towing our small car behind the motorhome, as the trailer on which it is carried is narrower than the MH, thus I am totally reliant upon the roof mounted rear camera to see the trailer, and the camera lens mists up readily in poor weather conditions such as rain or fog. Fortunately I know that the wheels of the trailer will remain within the rear axle track, even on full lock, so forward travel is not an issue. While I can see the trailer, for accurate reversing I do have to ensure the camera lens is cleaned, and then the camera is perfectly positioned as it actually looks down on the trailer making reversing a doddle.
