  1. Thankyou for all your help I now realise my original design was unrealistic, I intend to go down the remote 200 amp relay as above, but my red led rocker switch will be by the door, I may even fit a remote buzzer. Again thankyou for your help.
  2. The relay option sounds intresting Does this look suitable? https://autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/image_uploads/140292b_large.jpg https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/1026/category/149
  3. We have a 2016 Swift Conqueror 480 with a Truma caravan mover, it has a manual roller engagement, the battery isolation switch is in the separate battery box compartment by the mains hook up. As we have limited space on our drive it is very difficult to open and close the battery box. The original isolator switch is within 1 metre of the habitation battery and the motor mover controller panel, the wiring from the battery to the controller is automotive 8 mm2, the wiring to the motor movers are 6 mm2. I wish to move the battery isolation switch towards the entrance door, I will need to run in protective trucking approximately 5 metres of cable from the battery to the new isolation switch, then another 5 metres back to the motor mover controller, approximately 10 metres, I have no intentions of drilling a hole through the floor to obtain a shorter wiring run, I intend to uprate the wiring to 10 mm2 to offset and voltage drop, can you please advise.
  4. Are you just removing the wheels or what the fact you are asking for tyre pressures for your caravan and you intend to maybe some sort of servicing is a bit of a worry, to you have a calibrated torque wrench to tighten your wheels ?
  5. personally I would just walk away, the fact you have ask advice there are doubts in your mind.
  6. I found this article on an Australian site. https://www.caravancampingsales.com.au/editorial/details/toyota-rav4-hybrid-2019-tow-test-119784/?utm_source=ToyotaOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks I have also added a converision link https://www.unitjuggler.com/convert-fuelconsumption-from-lper100km-to-mpgimperial.html?utm_source=ToyotaOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks Owners on the RAV4 owners site are achieving around the 28mpg towing a 1600kg caravan and around the high 40's solo.
  7. This might of be interest to you guys/dolls https://www.caravancampingsales.com.au/editorial/details/toyota-rav4-hybrid-2019-tow-test-119784/?utm_source=ToyotaOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks.
  8. Personally I would recommend using the services of a independent caravan engineer regardless to whether you are purchasing from a dealer or a private seller.
  9. I brought a new one in 2016 excellent piece of kit.
  10. We brought a new Kampa Ace in 2016, it leaked like a sieve, on returning home we returned it to the dealer and brought another Isabella.
  11. Our Swift screams like a strangled duck, it has been back to the dealership but the problem came back on the way back home, on Monday our Swift Conqueror our Swift approved mobile engineer showed me the state of my brake shoes and drums, all severally score and recommend we go back to our dealer for a warranty claim.
  12. Our Swift Conqueror 480 2016 brakes squealed from day one, the dealer looked at them at the first service half way home started squealing again, second year service carried out by Swift approved mobile engineer the brakes were a little better, we are now on the third year service the same Swift approved mobile engineer removed the drum to find deep grooves in the offside brake shoes and drum and advised chasing up a warranty claim. The engineer has supplied a full report and photos, let see what happens, AL-KO shut down factory the factory in August, my warranty runs out 20th August 2019?
  13. That about the same as my Kuga towing 1500kg.
  14. How does the Passat perform when towing when you battery has depleted, I may be looking at a PHEV next year and could do with some feedback ?
  15. Mr Cabbage I can only assume you are having problems with your medication which could be a justification of your behaviour, if that is the case you really need to go back to your GP to get it sorted, don't feel upset or embarrassed it will sort itself out. A few years ago I decided to come of my 2500mg Epilium to zero I went a bit strange for while.
