  1. Earlier this year one of our front windows on our vigo got hit by a stone whilst towing and the replacement window was priced at £750 so we bought a front cover for £50.00 rhino brand on ebay its excellent does not mark the front of the van or windows I used to be sceptical about these covers but it's a no brainer just buy one its piece of mind .
  2. Hi Hopefully you have got UV resistant white plastic otherwise you will soon have yellow lettering again hammerite smooth white paint works and doesn't go yellow.
  3. I rang tyrepal and they told me to set my monitor to 75psi and 70 degrees my tyres normally go to 68 to 70 degrees and approx 66 degrees it's a good system but poor set up instructions only downside which they told me on the phone is that some tyres are fitted with sensors that are part of the valve and when the batteries go a tyrefitter has to remove the valve in order to replace the battery they also do a sensor that screws onto the valve so these batteries can be changed easily unfortunately I have the fixed ones !
  4. Hi I painted my letters A and E with hammerite white smooth that was a year ago and they are still white no yellowing and they match the rest of the lettering I used a fine model paint brush I gave them two coats and I did front and back lettering.
  5. Hi All Just been away and I fixed my loose handle there is a 6mm allen screw in the centre at the rear of the handle once this is removed the front of the handle comes off which reveals two threads sticking through the handle all i did was to hold the end of the thread with a pair of pliers and turn the thread until tight on both bolts if mine come loose again I will put some locktight on the threads anyway its an easy job when you know how ! thanks for all of your help.
  6. I have a loose grab handle the one that is on the side of the fridge by the entrance door does anyone know how to tighten them ? there is a fixing in the centre of the rail at the back cant see if its a allen screw or a philips screw I dont want to do any damage so hopefully some one can help.
  7. Hi If you need a replacement window try sfm caravan parts in halifax they are very good
  8. Hi we had a bailey pageant vendee same problem as you however I found out that on the roof where the plastic front of the van joins the roof on the edge of the metal joining strip there was a small crack this allowed water in which ran down the inner wooden frame battens and travelled along the wallboard base and around the window I only discovered this after I renewed the window frame rubber seal. I filled my crack with body filler and put loads of sikafix non setting sealant it never leaked again I also ended up putting up a new wallboard as well. hope this helps
  9. Hi All Just thought I would recommend a caravan breaker I used the other day they sell parts for Bailey and other makes all models including today's models They are based in Halifax and are SFM Caravan Parts they are very friendly and professional fast delivery service to. This may be of use to others searching for parts.
  10. Hi Steve Just a thought if you have only broken the hinge pins then these can be bought at Prima Leisure or Thetford the pins simply push out .
  11. Hi Steve I did the same thing last year depending on what you have broken you either have to buy a new frame which fits on the caravan locker opening this has the pins for the hinge on it or you will need a new door with the hinge eyes on it. you can order the complete door and frame from Prima Leisure (Bailey Parts) for about £60.00 if you buy the door and frame you wont need the insert (the painted panel in the door} you can if you are careful can get your old insert out it simply unclips remove the insert frame but you need to gently lever the insert away from the frame this is made of polystyrene so go careful the insert is held in by sealant but once you get a start it comes away easily then clip your insert into the new door (put sealent round the edges of the insert before putting into door) you also have to transfer the locks over from your old door onto the new one. If you are worried about the insert Prima sell a new one for £25.00 hope this helps it sounds complicated but I found it easy it took me 45 minutes. I think Prima sell the door and frame together but if you just need the frame I dident use mine I only needed the door so if you want the frame let me know my van is the Vigo but the door is the same as yours
  12. Try ajusting the pressure switch it is normally under the seat near the boiler it has a thumb wheel on the top of the switch normally when they bang or knock they need ajusting .
  13. Hi I might be wrong but I was under the impression that appliances were warranted for the first three years might be worth checking.
  14. Hi Have you got a Vigo only mine is in storage so can't go out and look I'm pretty sure that there is only carpet on the floor I don't remember seeing a threshold strip but what you are saying would make sense.
