  1. Could anybody help, We are intending to use our caravan on a rally this year. I have a solar panel for charging the battery but since we have changed our caravan the battery is now mounted centrally below the floor at the side of the fixed bed, our caravan is a Bailey Pegasus Verona model year 2016, how can I connect the charging leads conveniently any thoughts would be appreciated.
  2. We are away in our Bailey Pegasus Verona 2016 & we have now encountered a problem with our water pump, the whole system is all set up, but this evening I went to turn the tap on & the pump did not come on when I looked at the control panel a red light was on but pump not running, I then turned the pump switch to off & checked the connection outside the van then returned to the van & turned the pump switch back on, all was then OK, this same fault happened this morning too. Anybody understand such a intermittent fault
  3. We have a Bailey Pegasus Verona 2016, last September whilst away our caravan sprung a leak, the leak was immediately below the roof moulding & running down the side of the side wall of the van. I reported the issue to our supplying dealer & their response was that this was a commmon fault. Our caravan was returned to the dealer & was repaired under warranty, my only concern is that due to the fact that we now have a roof seam on our caravan roof, is this type of construction likely to become a problem area & always problematic giving rise to water leaks in future years ?. Bailey have now changed their method of caravan construction so instead of having a one piece roof panel they have now introduced a system of manufacturing which requires two roof panels a forward section and a smaller rear section that forces a roof joint. Considering Bailey have built caravans for 65 years & with all their experience & all the development cost involved with Alutec to provide a caravan with a moisture ingress warranty of 10 years, who in design would ever consider creating a roof seam which has a potential of creating a major roof leak which in my opinion will be very damaging to Baileys reputation & may steer people away from purchasing Bailey caravans.
  4. It may have taken 2 years, but it has only been in the last 6 months that we found out there was a fix for the problem, once we were in touch with the dealer it took some time for the warranty claim to get sorted. Disleygolf1
  5. I reported this problem with the Dream sleep seating in September 2016 and I am very pleased to report that our caravan has now been back to our supplier and we have brand new seating & baffle boards, this has now corrected the problem, the seating does not move at all, The seating cushions are much firmer too it is just a pity that we had 2 years with a faulty van. I suggest that all Bailey owners with the same problem do no hesitate to contact your supplying dealer to have the problem sorted under warranty.
  6. We have a Bailey Pegasus Verona 2016, we have just encountered a problem with our entry door. The problem first came to light when we returned to our caravan one day last week, it had been very sunny & the sun directed straight onto our entry door,I put the key in the lock turned it but could not open the door as the door catch was obviously fouling the the catch plate on the door surround to gain entry to the van I gave it a tug & the door opened, on further inspection from inside the van I viewed the door catch & the plate on the door surround & noticed that the door catch & the plate on the door surround had no clearance, causing the foul. It looks like this foul is caused due to the door expanding due to heat, as I inspected the door catch & surround in the morning when it was cool & there was plenty of clearance. I contacted our supplying dealer & they told me that all there caravans with Hartal doors have the same issue when the sun is facing the doors allowing the doors to expand & create a foul, has anybody encountered the same problem and if so what can be done to fix it, I can't see any way of adjusting the door catch or handle currently.
  7. I am very disappointed with the white seals on the front & rear fairing seals they have very quickly faded from white to off white, is there any product that would restore the white it has started to make the van look tatty after all it is only 15months old.
  8. I have recently purchased the yellow awning rail protectors,they are supposed to prevent dirt & debris entering the awning rail, but the main reason is to prevent those stains that accur down the side of the caravan usually along the whole length of rhe caravan. I went to my storage area today to inspect the van & I have to say I am very disappointed as I have the same staining so this has been a complete waste of money,interested to know other people's experiences, Many Thanks
  9. We have purchased in March a Bailey Pegasus Verona 2016, the problem we have is with the seating the cushions on the bottom are forever sliding forward which is annoying. Does anyone have a solution to this problem. Many thanks
  10. I returned 2 weeks ago from our Easter Break we had only travelled under 70 miles and when I was putting the alko wheel lock on I couldn't help but notice the wheels felt quite warm and the brake drums were very hot. I contacted my local Bailey dealership where the van had been serviced and booked it in for there opinion, we went today I only travelled 20 miles and again the drums were hot,the van was taken in the workshop and the braking system checked they could not find a fault they reset the alko device and then towed the van for a short run to check things out on their return we checked the brake drums and they were not hot,we then returned with the van home and stopped twice to check the brake drums they were a little hot but nothing like the outward journey, finally once at home checked again the wheels were not warm and the brake drums were hot but very soon cooled down, is this normal with the Alko device on the van,I would appreciate your views.
  11. I have broken one of the window blind catches part No 1230215 I went on the Bailey spare parts site and found them at 60p each but the postage is £5. 00 is this the only place I can source them
  12. I had what I thought was a fault with my Al-Ko ATC when connected to the car the ATC would do all the checks putting brakes on then off then I got a Red light not a Green light I then got a friend to connect his car to my van and all was O. K which suggested there may be a fault with my car wiring so I took it down to the place that fitted the tow bar and they found a fault with the live feed the wire loom had become damaged so that was replaced and now all O. K hope this helps
  13. Does anybody know the correct torque value for checking your wheel nuts are tightened correctly

D lights which are incorporated in the handles on the outer corners of the van well the offside rear is now not working has anybody encountered this problem & what is the fix is it something I may be able to do myself
