  2. Thanks Gavin, I have checked above and below the window rail and there is no visible cracks. Is it possible that water is getting through the rail sealant and then through the screw holes, as the sealant does seem in poor shape ? Can the rail be re-sealed, and if so, with what kind of sealant ? Thanks johnboy2, did the dealer give an explanation as to the Vendees leak problem ?
  3. Hi, can anyone offer advice on how to deal with a Vendee S5 2005 that is leaking rainwater into the front locker from under the front windows. I am not too concerned that rainwater is leaking onto the front locker plastic/resin floor, but very concerned that the woodwork inside the front panel may be rotting. It appears that the water is tracking down inside the two vertical window frames that separate the three front windows. Could the rainwater ingression be though the window hinges at the top of the windows or is it possibly more serious and the ingression be through the roof
  4. Thanks for putting us right burnsguitarman and 8342mat, I stand corrected.

  7. Thanks caravan'ers ! your replies make for interesting reading to a newbie, by the sounds of it we should have easily enough gas for now but I think we will need to change to propane before long due to the 5C thing. Wish us luck !! Thanks again.
  8. Our first trip away with our Bailey Pageant Vendee 2005 this weekend, just 2 nights in the Garstang, Lancashire area. Our 7kg gas butane bottle, I'm guessing, feels and sounds around half full, maybe slightly less. QUESTION - Would a half full 7kg bottle contain enough gas for a 2 night stay, cooking breakfast, and dinner and presuming the heating (Truma on gas) is on through the night (forecast is down to around 2 degrees at night), or is it advisable to use Truma on electric to conserve gas ? Your help is appreciated, thanks. Keith.
  9. So does my wife . . . she bought a lime green kettle to match everything, and I mean 'everything' she added to our Vendee !
  10. Thanks for that. Very nice of you.
  11. Oh, me too bopeep me too, that's done it ! I'm going to leave my wife right now and tow straight to Gretna Green with . . . . . . " xxx BAILEY xxx "
