  1. I did try another outlet on the same bollard, but not another bollard as I'd struggle to reach the next nearest. It was 100% stable since switching back to electric yesterday evening so not sure if it's the changing load monitor to 10A or electric setting to 1kw (or both) that did it but presumably if there was a nibble in the EHU cable (I didn't have time to check in the end yet) then it would still trip even on lower power settings? I'll be back this afternoon & will give it a good run through on various settings again before we depart tomorrow.
  2. Thanks all for the comments. Just to clarify, everything has been 100% problem free here for the previous 8 nights & we've done nothing differently whatsoever in the last 24hrs. We've been on enough sites to know when we're simply on a low-power hookup. This all started at 7pm yesterday (good job I wasn't bothered about the footie! ) out of the blue. I'll mention again - it also tripped in the middle of the night when nothing but fridge & (occasional) hot water would have been active so nothing to do with our normal power usage. On returning th
  3. It's the bollard tripping, but it's tripping with virtually nothing else running. Will be trying on 1kw later as I said, but something that has been working fine for 9 nights & suddenly failing very quickly sounds more like a fault to me.
  4. Indeed, we've been on similar sites too and have been known to take the same precautions, but that's definitely the extreme rather than the norm for us, but in any case it tripped further later without the use of ANY other appliances, other than a sky box & a 45w TV.
  5. We're up to our 9th night away this trip with no problems at all until yesterday evening when suddenly the power tripped whilst the OH was using the microwave. I flipped it back & it tripped a couple more times whilst she was hurriedly trying to finish doing the dinner & I assumed there must be a fault on the microwave causing the trip as we were only using the sky box/tv at the time. Later as she was washing up it tripped again so my thoughts immediately turned to heating tripping it (hot water side). As we went to bed I said I hoped it didn't tri

  8. We ended up using Strathclyde (as mentioned above) on the way up and Englethwaite on the way back, both times it meant the longer stint was on the first day of travel which worked out perfectly, thanks for all the suggestions. ..
  9. Well I've managed to book Strathclyde on the way up, thinking the longer stint is better this side than Scottish side bearing in mind any bad weather is more likely up there than down here (to slow us down). Still having grief even trying to book 2 nights at Moffat (as a test) as it keeps failing on me so might give 'em a call tomorrow if I remember & see what's what.
  10. Thanks all. Moffat appears to be fully booked on the way up & trying to check availability on the way back seems to have crashed the booking page but at least I have a sensible area to consider so will sort something tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestions!
  11. We're heading to Loch Ness Shores C&CC site in a couple of weeks, starting from Coventry-ish (J2/3 M6 anyway) and were looking to stop at a site overnight around halfway to break up the journey (each way) but I'm aware that halfway on a map/route doesn't necessarily mean half-way real-world driving so am looking for area suggestions? Never been to Scotland before (long overdue!) so not sure what the roads are like closer to the site (other than the narrow approach roads) so is it reasonable to stick a pin in the map at the halfway mileage & pick a CL/CS site near by? I did i
  12. That's reminded me that our batteries have been in for around 2. 5yrs now - must swap them at some point as they must be getting a bit low by now. ..
  13. Certainly possible. I'll need to have a rummage underneath at the weekend (work means darkness during the week :-/)
  14. Sorry, I neglected to clarify in the OP that I tested with the rollers off the wheels (primarily to rule out battery power/capacity issues). So, to clarify, with the rollers disengaged, n/s roller turns just fine, o/s roller faintly clicks with each button press of the remote, but doesn't turn at all.
  15. The o/s roller on my PurpleLine EM4445 mover seems to have stopped working. N/s seems to work fine, if I listen to the o/s when pressing the button on the remote I can hear a clicking, but no movement of the roller. Any obvious things to check/test before I get in touch with the dealer to try to sort? I changed the batteries in the remote (but it turns n/s anyway) with no change. I have a 100w solar panel with no known 12v battery issues but in any case, after initially discovering the issue when hitching up from storage on Friday evening, it still didn't work this afternoon after bein
