  1. Our Unicorn S4 Valencia is nearing its 3 year warranty period and I’ve just notice that both front grab handles appear to be deforming the front panel, checking other S4’s they seem to be similar. Should I worry about this, my concern is that the front panel may start to crack, I will raise this before the 3 year warranty period ends.
  2. The seal on ours was not good but has been fixed:
  3. I have to say this looks interesting and probably just as good as the basic trackers that are fitted to caravans. The only concern I have relates to charging, can it charge and track at the same time, this is not mentioned in the FAQ's
  4. Our caravan is a U4 Valencia which is still under warranty and its the Thetford cooker, cleaning is not a solution, I can see the igniter sparking but its near the mounting plate not the tip. I was trying to establish how long a dealer will need to replace this and hoping a Saturday morning job but possibly not.
  5. Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace the oven igniter, can it be unscrewed and replaced or does the entire cooker need removing? The reason for asking is our igniter is not working, it’s sparking but around the mount and not across the gas. Trying to establish how long a job it is for our dealer to replace it.
  6. To be fair to the CMC they are offering a similar benefit, I emailed them a few days ago asking if they had any plans to extend membership. I received a reply today saying that members who renew their membership will receive a one night stay voucher which is similar or better in value to the C&CC offer of extending membership. I'm not sure if the CMC offer is automatic or you have to register I was asked to provide my membership no.
  7. The bathroom door on our U4 Valencia has very little clearance between the door and frame and when the caravan is cold the door handle catches and it's difficult to open the door, after a few days the heat adjust the door and it opens without issue. The main issue is the handle has play in it and does not fully pull the latch into the door resulting in the door not opening. My thinking is if I can remove the play the latch will be pulled completely into the frame but my challenge will be removing the door handle: https://www.primaleisure.com/product/6110393/toilet-door-locking-hand
  8. I decided to ditch the tracker on our Bailey, it was very poor and expensive, the increase in insurance was only £30 for not having it active. It feels to me that Bailey & Tracker are in bed with each other, Tracker supply their devices to Bailey for free of charge in the hope of subscriptions and Bailey fit them for free as a sales & marketing bonus.
  9. We have the Kampa Air 400 and a Valencia and it fits nicely, from the rear the awning finishes/fits between the door and front window, I would say the 500 would be too large as it adds another metre .
  10. Interesting, two things that I forgot to mention. Ferry Crossings - Who remembers the days when you could visit the NEC Caravan Show and book your Norfolk Ferry now DFDS crossing for £89 return? I was also concerned at how we would be treated this year due to Brexit. No problems whatsoever, our Dutch neighbours even had a joke with us. We get our inflateable boat out, at which point they asked if we were sailing back to Britian!
  11. Just coming to the end of our 2 week stay in France and for the first time ever I'm really questioning if I will holiday in Europe next year. The reason being the over all cost.... Firstly the exchange rate almost 1 euro to £1, this results in a tank of petrol costing £60 compare to £40 Petrol prices generally increased and the best diesel rate we found was €1.37, previously it was closer to €1.20. Eating out has increased and this combined with the poor exchange rate meant we went out far less. The 11 night pitch fees was €500 so £500, and this
  12. I’m considering changing our Unicorn 4 Valencia and I’m aware theres limited stock of the curren Unicorn 4, comments such as last 2019 model and the same dealer mentioning that Bailey had asked them what they should change on the Unicorn. So my question, is there a new a revised model due for 2020 or is stock low as this years stock runs out? Another question, when looking at the Bailey range they seem to be moving to the 8ft width standard, lower end models are still the narrower width but what did surprise me is the Pegasus has moved to 8ft which is normally below the Unicorn.

  13. Ok thanks, you've confirmed what I thought and that being theres no visual way inside the caravan.
  14. About to take delivery of a new car and need to check that the towbar electrics is wired to provide power to fridge etc whilst towing. How do you establish if power is coming from car, theres the solar panel & caravan battery and I'm not sure how to check if if power is coming from the car?
  15. I think I may have found the answer to my question on page 264 of the cars user manual: Power supply of the trailer / accessory power system In the electrical connection between the vehicle and trailer (accessory), the trailer (accessories) is supplied with power from the vehicle (with ignition switched on and off). With the engine switched off, the vehicle battery is discharged by the connec- ted consumers. At low charge state of the vehicle battery, the power supply to the trailer (ac- cessories) is interrupted.
