  1. A neighbour of mine bought a new Avondale, but it was AFTER their demise. In that case, an Insurance based Warranty was provided by the Dealer, and that might be the case with new Lunars sold if Lunar do not survive. However what the position would have been if parts had been required which only Avondale could have provided, I don’t know.
  2. I would recommend kojack rather than alko. Much more stable in my view.
  3. I believe with 2019 vans, the 6 year water ingress warranty could be extended to 10 years for an additional cost.
  4. My Clubman also had new battery box under warranty following first service sue to hairline cracks, caused (according to Campbells) by overtightening of the screws in the factory. Also same problem with ehu housing, bbq point and near side wet box, all replaced along with battery box.
  5. I have been told by someone in the trade that Lunar Caravans have closed down. The factory doors are apparently locked and a skeleton staff remain to close things up. Anyone know more? If it's TRUE, bang go warranties!
  6. Our 76 vintage house has all taps fed from mains. The loft tank only feeds the hot water cylinder. Back to the caravan, we NEVER drink water from the taps in the van, hot or cold. We always fill a container from the site tap to use for drinking or making tea/coffee, or boiling food in.
  7. Surprised that Swift were still using the header tank pump in 2017. Most manufacturers had switched to the boiler mounted pump by then. Our 2013 Swift and then 2015 Lunar had the pump in the header tank and they were both noisy. Bleeding may help, but it didn’t on ours. Alde changed the pump for us and told me to try all sorts of things, including fitting a mouse mat behind the header tank, but nothing would quieten it. Our 2017 Lunar has the boiler mounted pump and after the other two, it is absolute bliss, can’t hear a peep from it. Whether we would hear it if we slept on the front beds I don’t know but we can’t hear it when just sitting there.
  8. I have been towing for nearly 40 years, but wouldn’t tow with your combination!
  9. Your profile says you have a Swift Challenger 570, but the picture of the wheel shows a centre cap with a Sterling emblem. Perhaps a search of the Alko website under Swift Sterling vans rather than Challenger might help?
  10. The position is usually that any issue with water ingress arising from the gas point, or any issue arising with the gas supply would not be covered, but the rest of the warranty should not be compromised. If the gas point is fitted by a Dealer, then they should guarantee their work, but probably not for any longer than 12 months.
  11. Sounds as though there may be a dimmer somewhere set low. Is there something in the control panel? Anything shown in the Manual?
  12. Even on a level pitch, compensation can be made for an awning slightly on the large side by using a block under both sides of the van Whenever we use our Isabella Magnum 400, I always go on blocks either side, even though its a porch and therefore without an AA measurement. I find that the little extra height provides better tension in the awning and looks a lot better too.

  14. Mine recently did this and the following morning the aquaroll was full and overflowing, meaning the valvecwadn't shutting off as already suggested. I stripped the valve down and cleaned the diaphragm. Worked perfectly again afterwards.
  15. The Aquaroll branded fitting always sits the right way up when screwed into the side fitting. If the valve were upside down, it wouldn't activate when the water level falls.
