  1. What was the cause? Gordon
  2. Tomos, Do you mean it doesn't work on gas or electric or both? Is the 'fridge fitted in a unit with cutlery drawer, microwave etc? if it is you may find that it is should be plugged into a socket behind the cutlery drawer ( Assuming that the layout is similar to our 540UK). If not it may still be possible to check behind the 'fridge in another cupboard. Have you checked all the electrical breakers and fuses? If it is the gas side that is not working have you checked that the correct gas cock is turned on?( Might sound obvious but plenty of people do it.), If it is and it will not ignite it could still be a fuse etc and if not the igniter may be U/S. Gordon
  3. Number relates to a BMW X1 first registered 29 June 18. Wonder if the plate was cloned to steal the caravan? Gordon
  4. That is what I did. The end bedroom didn't have any power sockets so I fitted a double socket with two USB charging sockets. Gordon
  5. Hi Gordon,


    I see that you fitted a new inlet for the water into a hobby.

    I'm just about to do the same but am unsure how thick the wall is?

    Can you help!!

    Kind Regards,



  6. Paul, Do you have a link for the smart box? The Mio in my wife's Saab uses the lighter socket but it doesn't always switch on with the ignition. Gordon
  7. I got our Hobby insured through the CMC with no problem at all. Try them. Gordon
  8. If you look at the line above the search window you have the option to change the language to English. Gordon
  9. My Hobby 540 even has a ladder and roof bars. The hand book says that you can stand on the roof but not to walk on it 'Freehanded'. I take that to mean unsupported, to prevent falls. Gordon
  10. That looks like a smaller version of the one over our kitchen unit. Is that insert on the long side a light and is there another on the opposite side? If they are lights I've just checked them on our 'van and if you remove the covers you should see screws holding it to the roof. The mastic is laid so that cut ends butt up together. It is so thick that if you overlap it the skylight may not tighten down properly. Just make sure that as you stick it to the rook you don't stretch it. Gordon
  11. Stephen, If it is the standard square skylight as we have in the bedroom of our Hobby 540, if you look at the frame where it is butted up to the ceiling you should see small circular cap at each corner. Prize them out, (I usually use a pin so as not to damage the cap), you will see a screw in each hole. If you remove the screws it will separate the inner and out frames. You'll then have to get to the roof and cut through the mastic. Once you've done that the out section should lift free allowing you to clean all the old mastic off. Whatever you do don't apply sealant! When I did this job on our old Lunar I bought a roll of mastic tape from a caravan dealer It did the job perfectly and no further problem. I hope this helps. Gordon
  12. They are the ones that fitted mine. They did an excellent job. WE dropped it off and went shopping in Leeds. It was completed when we got back. Gordon
  13. I have a Westphalia detachable tow bar on our BMW X5 and it is ridiculously simple to fit and remove. Fitting was £600. Gordon
  14. My daughter's family hired a Motor Home for this year's holiday and the inconveniences persuaded them to buy a caravan. Gordon
