  1. We have a twin axle and it’s almost impossible to align both wheels in order to fit both ALKO locks. Now we have this set up.
  2. You can’t align both wheels on a twin axle with the motor mover to fit 2 Alko locks. We went for this arrangement after trying to jack the van up once. The other alternative is a lock and level under the wheel if you can get the car close enough to use the cigarette lighter for the air pump.
  3. I like the sound of the fountain. We always try to get pitches around 98
  4. That’s dreadful, however I must say after being in a bad storm last year and seeing the damage caused to the caravans from poles and awnings being blown over vans, we use inflatable awnings. Hope you get a result on your claim.
  5. I think there’s probably more problems with speeding and inappropriate loading of the caravan causing fishtailing, rather than towing over 85%.
  6. I tow a twin axle Elddis Avante with the 2 litre 190 PSI DSG Tiguan. It tows like a dream, you don’t know the van is on the back. I’ve ordered another due in March
  7. Doosan that is very tight. You wouldn’t be able to get wheel locks on .
  8. I use tepid water
  9. Yes I know what you mean. When we arrived we were booked on a grass pitch but it was waterlogged and we got stuck. Luckily there were some hard standing pitches free so we could have one of those.
  10. Ours has the fire extinguisher in it
  11. Thank you now I know what they are called I’ll try and order one. I must say the dealer is very unhelpful. It’s going in for a service and I asked if they could replace it while it’s in. The receptionist said no it’s only booked in for a service they won’t have time! I said it’s a piece of plastic which just needs sticking on !
  12. Thanks for all the helpful replies. I presume the blighters got in through the vents in the front locker. Off to buy some traps and peanut butter today, plus removing everything today for the winter. Never had this problem before, can’t believe the damage done to the cover in just 7 days!
  13. Just been away for a week and the towing cover was in the front locker. Came to put it on today to come home and it’s full of holes where mice have chewed it
  14. I’ve caught the back end of the caravan on something and the plastic cap from the corner has been pulled off. What are they called as I was going to see if i could order one. thanks
  15. Our Elddis has a phantom tracker. We have a solar panel and the caravan is never hooked up. The battery held full charge all last winter.
