  1. Having owned 3 Discoveries and one LR3 2012 4.4 V8 diesel, the later being my current tow car. This full fat Range Rover (as we refer to this model on our forum) is by far the best tow car I have owned, super comfortable, super powerful, at 21/2 tons it never lets the tail wag the dog. Towing at 58 mph the engine is only running at 1200 rpm, so economy is very good. A good, low mileage 2012 vogue model could be bought for around £17000. A lot of car that would have cost in access of 50K new. I must stress I am recommending the Range Rover as the perfect tow car and not a run around town car, for this we use a Renault Zoe electric car.
  2. Thanks for all the replies, I have told Emove I want to move the isolation switch, they tell me this is ok and are going to send me the necessary cable.
  3. I think you are probably right, but if I want to order some from eBay I need to know the spec ie: thickness and current.
  4. Hi does anyone know what thickness and current the cable needs to be between the battery and the isolation switch? regards Ian
  5. I have just purchased a 2017 Cartagena and part of the deal was the dealer would fit a motor mover, they fitted an emove unit and put the key under the bed as close to the recessed, in the floor battery. When I asked why it was in such an impractical place, they told me they get a wiring kit supplied with the mover for each caravan model and for the Cartagena emove only supply short cables from the battery to the switch. Having said all that, Emove have told me that is not the case and are sending me 2 meters of cable, so as I can move the switch to just inside the locker door.
  6. Thanks Asklowey, it is a U3. I was a bit disappointed to find that Bailey had gone back to a submersible pump, the onboard pump on my U2, although noisy, created good pressure to the shower etc.
  7. The dealer has given me the option to change the mattress from my 2013 Cartagena to the 2017 model he is supplying, I'm assuming they will be the same size. If they are I will swop them over.
  8. I'm about to take delivery of a 2017 Cartagena and have noticed it has an onboard water tank, does this mean it will have an inboard pump as well as the submersible one that drops into the water barrel?
  9. Thanks for the reply Mark, if I decide to change to a later Cartagena I may suggest we swop the mattress. Are your bench seats foam or are they sprung interior? Regards Ian
  10. I have a 2013 Cartagena and am thinking of changing it for a 2017 Catagena. Does anyone have any opion on how the quality of the mattress and bench seating compare. On the 2013 Cartagena the mattress and seating are Spring interior. Having tried the seating in the later model it feels as if it is only a thick foam. Does anyone know if this is the case? regards Ian
  11. I think the point I was trying to make was: it's nice to have an extra little shelf in the poorly designed space left between the basin and the round shower. Bailey designers should have included a shelf there at the build stage.
  12. Well at long last I got round to filling in the silly gap between the hand basin and the round shower in my Cartagena.
  13. Well well, my daughter found her handbook, it turns out to be a 1999 Avondale Dart 510/5, the handbook says tyre pressure should be 48 psi. Thank you all for your interest in this thread.
  14. Thanks for the replies. There is enough information there for me to work out a suitable pressure. Regards Ian
  15. Could someone please tell me what the tyre pressures should be on a Avondale Dart 5.
