  1. We are in France near Pau, excellent camp site but have a problem with out Ventura Trinus. After torrential down pore last night it started leaking so pulled back the zips on the bladders to try and seal the leaks. Sprayed Aqua Tex on the areas and went away for the day. Returned and rezipped the bladders but one of the zips has come off. Anyone had this problem? If so how how did you reattach the zip? Excuse the pictures but its late and the beer has been flowing.
  2. This might not be in the correct section. We are going to the south of France via Bilboa and am wondering about marker boards for rigs over 12m. I think I will need them but was wondering if I could attach the marker board to the bike rack on the back of our van?
  3. Our ATC supply switches off after a number of minutes if the engine isn’trunning.
  4. The focus is not in the same class or standard as the X6. If I could I would drive the X6 every day. After driving all day in the focus I’m glad to get away from it, I don't say the same about the X6. Underneath the X6 is the same as the X5 so the drive will be the same. It is only the back end which differs. I like the look of the X6 over the X5.
  5. We moved from a 5 gt to an X6 3d msport. I only drive it on a weekend as it is classed as the wifes car, I drive a focus 1.5d. I think it’s a good looking car, much better than the x5. It tows our swift conqueror 560 really well. We got ours as a pre built un registered car just before the 17 registration came out and got a really good deal. The only thing we are not keen on is the the white leather because it is very hard to keep clean.
  6. Enjoy, the mirrors are very good, the car is very good, any pictures? This is ours.
  7. We have the F16 with the same mirrors and use the Emuk model type and they fit no problem and once set up they are a doddle to fit and no more adjusting. A bit expensive but after cracking the mirror surround with our old Milenco I think they are worth it.
  8. Thanks Paul, I have been looking and I think I have not put it properly, where the bladders meet they are creating a valley where the water is collecting and because, as you say it is new, it is leaking through the seams. I will try adjusting the angle of the bladders, when it stops raining and get some fabsil and spray on the seams. Just wish it would stop raining.
  9. We bought a Ventura Trinus at the NEC Caravan Show. We have used it about 4 times without problem. We have set up yesterday without problem until last night, it rained heavily and when we got up this morning we have found it leaking where the roof bladders meet the front bladder arch. Has anyone else had this problem?
  10. I am with Walter. We have had BMW's for over 20 years and been using Milenco tow mirrors until last year. We cracked the mirror housing on both sides last year and thanks to the advice on here we purchased some model specific EMUK mirrors and would recomend them. They are expensive but the way they fir on the car mirror housings once they are set you don't have to reset the mirror angle.
