  1. Brilliant service from Whale again.....can’t fault them....👍👍👍
  2. Hi all, we probably touch on this before, but I need a touch up paint for the Storm, our glorious manufacturer don’t hold paint codes...????? and I can’t take a sample to maybe have it matched somewhere as it’s a chip on the main body of the van..... they tell me the colour is Rembrant Silver, but that’s all they can tell me.....bad language removed really. anyone any ideas about who could supply paint for it.... cheers Tim
  3. Mmmmm...... I find it strange that people have mentioned they have levellers for BOTH side (2 sets) I’ve never needed to level both sides,(although always use hard pitches) but surely only one side or the other needs to be raised not both, unless of course the van needs to be higher to account for waste drainage, into a grey waste grid.....as some of these sites build a small wall around the drain... pain in the backside because you have to try and build in a fall in the pipe to get over it, especially with TAs as they are quite low slung.
  4. We have a Crusader storm 2016 which I believe has the same side panels, we also have a full Bradcot awning, which I also believe fits similar to an Isabella, I actually stand on a platform and use quite a lot of my own strength to REALLY tighten the tension on the poles, had no issue at all, I’m assuming the power from the tensioner is quite excessive and needs to be used carefully, I was thinking of getting one, but not so sure after reading your post..... hope the dealer can sort something for you, the technology around removing dents has really come on over the last year or 2 so hopefully something can be done...
  5. Hi all, I’m looking for a new fitted sheet for the bed....it’s the transfers island one that slides back in the day, so it’s got the hinged bolster at the top. we bought a Jonic set a couple of years ago, and to be honest it’s bad language removed, is very thin and keeps riding off during the night...? We ordered the Elddis bed set with the van, it doesn’t come with a sheet, but the quality of the cover and pillow cases is brilliant. any idea who makes them for Elddis....? There’s no labels on any of the pieces.. or or can anyone recommend a decent make... cheers tim
  6. Defo worth asking the manufacturer......... it it says here there an optional extra bike rack......wether it’s on the back or not doesn’t say......
  7. Hi all, Is it me or do these things sit lower than most caravans, we mainly use full services pitches, but occasionally go on a just electric pitch, so when we’re on a FSP I can usually get the pipe to go down the drain with enough drop to work, but when I need to use a waste master I can only get the narrow end under the van, which obviously won’t fill up to the top so have to keep emptying it more than I should. i look at other vans (to be fair mainly single axles) and they sit much higher with loads of room for the thick end of the wastemaster to fit under, so are twin axles naturally lower, or just Elddis twin axles. had 2 TA Elddis vans over 7years, but never thought to ask before... TIA Tim
  8. Hi guys, decided to find out why the bed slides open when towing, can’t seem to see any sort of stop on the under frame to stop it sliding when travelling.....although there are 2 white magnetic stops under the frame, but I think the only hold the rear of the frame the front of the frame is free to slide out.....? If you know what I mean...? There are 2 screw holes at the rear of the front frame, I’m thinking there should be some sort of a bracket or stop in those holes....? maybe I just need to find something to fit in them like a buffer stop or something....? thanks tim
  9. Typical Whale, unbelievable service from them every time I’ve had a query or issue with their products... well done Whale....👍👍👍
  10. Just on the subject of costco ones, I only seem to be able to get the yellow “ micro fibre towels” rather than the yellow plain micro fibres, might be just my branch, but do you guys see 2 types std, and towel....? Both yellow and the same size...? cheers Tim
  11. Just on this one, I wanted an outside socket fitting,I’d already fitted one under the bed space but wasn’t how I wanted it, was going to fit my own but thought twice about cutting a hole in the side of the van.,..the van was going into Crossleys for a water leak repair, I ask them to fit one whilst it was there. was really surprised at the quality of the socket they fitted, really robust with a proper cover and lead connection on the back, job done, only charged me £65.00 brilliant....
  12. I had the same issue with the last 2 vw touareg electrics, but you soon get used to it, and do it without even looking at it.
  13. Hi all, just a general question,as I spend a lot of time on the motorways in the midlands, I’m seeing loads on transporters with motor homes on the back on their way ready for the NEC show. a thought occurred.....do motor homes have the same issues in build quality as caravans...? So, leaks, crackes, all the usual stuff.... just wondering...? cheers Tim
  14. Hi is there any photos, showing where it goes, that pump does get on your nerves sometimes especially in the winter when it cycles on and off during the night. .... great idea to move it. ...👍 cheers tim
