  1. I stand corrected you are quite right. Ive been out and done some more checks. Disconnected The earth rod and measured the current whilst my son turned things off one by one in the garage and the current disappears when the caravan is hook up is removed so clearly there’s an issue with the van. will be phoning the dealer in the morning.
  2. You need an earth to complete the circuit. If you have no earth it will find another way, in my case through my hand and earthing to the wet drive at my knee.
  3. Thanks for the replies. All fixed. It was connected to the mains. Whilst I was checking the leads the elec garage door started going down without me pressing the button, quick check of the garage earth rod revealed a missing clamp bolt. Goodness knows how long it’s been like that!
  4. I got a few shocks off the chassis today when I was strapping down the winter cover. I was kneeling on a very wet drive, it wasn’t a full on kick but rather a unpleasant tingle so I guess I have an earth problem somewhere. Caravan has just been serviced so I hope it’s electrical system is ok.
  5. Just washed the roof prior to fitting the winter cover and our 2017 U3 has a similar seal to the modified one judging by the picture. Very neat mastic application as well
  6. Thanks for the replies, I've always used covers, four oak trees and an owl that craps on everything in the drive make it worth while.
  7. Evening folks, as per title really. Need to get a cover but being pretty much bang on 21ft do I get the 19-21 or 21-23. Anyone bought one for the Valencia or give me some guidance?
  8. BMW X5 M50D, I want one badly! In my experience of towing car trailers and caravans its best to start with a vehicle that handles well when solo, it will only get worse with a heap of kg's hanging off the back.
  9. Unfortunately the " that'll do" attitude is rife, I've decided to do it myself for peace of mind.
  10. I see your point, it's only £100 extra to have it fitted and that's what worries me. I just have a vision of it being a rushed job when they are going to drive to my home and fit it for just £100. I'm a bit ocd when it comes to these things unfortunately.
  11. That's what I thought, just worried as I'll be drilling holes in the floor.
  12. I'm wanting to fit a motormover to my new van but don't want to run into any warranty issues with the the van. Has anyone had any experience?
  13. Oh how awful. Never bought a van from them but did go looking 2 weeks ago. Wish them all the best.
  14. An apology. I am very sorry if I have offended anyone on this thread as Silverback has suggested it was certainly not meant . I started this thread as a dig at Bailey for cost cutting with the new Pegasus 4, I am still unaware where I've ridiculed anyone who has had problems with their van, believe me I have my fair share of problems with caravans and it is very upsetting. So please accept my apologies.
  15. Sorry, I was unaware that I had ridiculed or undermined anyone in this post???? Are you confusing me with someone else?
