  1. 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.
  2. Sounds as though there may be a dimmer somewhere set low. Is there something in the control panel? Anything shown in the Manual?
  3. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. If I forget to disengage the rollers on mine, then the car & van will just not move. The back of the car just sits down.
  8. Travelled over the Llanberis Pass today, enroute to the Electric Mountain. Coming down from the top towards Llanberis doing about 44mph, and was overtaken by a push bike - yes a PUSH BIKE. He must have been doing around 50mph! Pity I dont have my laptop with me so that I could upload the sat nav footage.
  9. Happy with our Lunar Clubman, the second one we have had. Next van will be another Lunar Clubman.
  10. The red ball (although I have seen other colours too) is used so that no one can come along with a smaller diameter tow ball and hitch up with the lock in place. Entirely up to you whether you use it or not. Although many Insurers require a hitch lock to be fitted, I have never known any to specify fitment of the plastic ball too.
  11. Are you sure the Alde panel wasn’t turned on and just set to dark so that nothing was showing?

    Only until she reads this thread!
  13. It sounds as though this must be down to some change in the Alde system for 2018 onwards. We have had Alde in our 2013, 2015 and current 2017 vans, all running on night mode at 15* from 10.00pm until 7.30 am, and all then returning to default made and running until the normal 21* reached, without any break or smoothing period. At the moment, I’m glad my wife didn’t like the soft furnishings in the 2019 model which stopped us changing!
  14. Jonic sell on ebay, under the user name jonic-essentials (used to be northwestbedding I think). The fitted sheets for caravans on there are a lot cheaper than from Jonic direct. We had their sheets on a transverse bed in a lunar Clubman with the attached bolster bit and it was no problem. I thought it would keep coming off as the bed was pushed in and out, but it didn’t.
  15. That time of year again. For last 5 or 6 years, never been able to better Direct Line for my car and OH’s car. My 2015 Sorento KX3 comes in at £250.88, fully comp with protected no claims, drivers legal protection and £150 voluntary excess, for me with OH as named driver. Any thoughts on an Insurer that might better that? I know many swear by Saga, but they quote me nearly £200 more.
  16. Every van I have had with Alde has had drain points on the top corners of the pipework, one under each front seat and one under the fixed bed(s). They are not necessarily easy to get too. On a previous Swift they could be accessed through cut outs in the back boards behind the seats or mattress, but on Lunars we have had (and currently have) they cant be seen at all and only seem accessible by feel under the seats or bed. I am in the process of changing the Alde fluid, and if bleeding is needed afterwards, the points under the seats and beds will have to be bled “blind”.
  17. I fitted one under front bunk in a previous van. The original hot water pipe had a ‘T’ joint under the kitchen sink. I removed the ‘T’ and fitted an elbow joining the pipe from the front to the one up to the sink. A new length of pipe from the front to under the sink was joined by a straight connector to the pipe going to the bathroom. This was connected to the flow on the TRV. The TRV was then fitted with the hot and cold supplies taken by ‘T’ connectors at the front. All worked well, but the water presenting itself in the bathroom at the preset temperature perhaps took a bit longer to get there.
  18. Been using the volume button on my Samsung for a while, but it had to be setup in the menu.
  19. Wasn’t free on CCC Site on Skye last week. £2.99 for half an hour, or £19.99 would have covered our 4 day stay. With no phone signal to bluetooth to, went without for 4 days, except for free wifi in Information Centres and cafes..
  20. Yes, there is no problem with the pitching, but lucky for him there was a grass pitch available because he wouldn’t have fitted on any of the available hard standings. Well it will move a lot quicker.
  21. We have a similar thing with our 2017 Clubman SB. When the pump is running it sounds as though the pump in the Aquaroll is banging against the side of it, although it probably is pulsing on and off rapidly. There is no pulsing in the supply at the taps. I have tried adjusting the pressure switch, but when it gets to the stage where the banging or pulsing stops, the pump keeps running when the tap is turned off, so I just leave the pulsing or banging and forget about it.
  22. This ‘outfit’ arrived on Culloden Moor CMC site this afternoon. NB It is just car and boat on trailer, nothing to do with the motorhome on the pitch next to it.
  23. That could well do it if you are using a domestic type kettle. Need a low wattage kettle in the van - takes a little longer to boil but quicker overall when the EHU doesn’t trip! Still worth having a few spare 12v fuses though, just in case.
  24. Are you referring to 12v or 240v? If the 240v supply is going to trip, it will usually be either the EHU bollard RCD that trips, or one of the MCB’s in the caravan. Either of those should just need resetting ( after investigating why it tripped in the first place). As for 12v fuses, I would think many carry spares covering a range of currents, and I would certainly advise anyone to do so.
  25. Strange how some Insurers can come out better for some people but not others. I have been with Direct Line for around 5 years now and always cheapest. LV and Saga are always a good bit more expensive than Direct Line on our two cars. When I get the Direct Line renewal notifications I always ring them and ask what they can do with premiums, and usually end up with a good 10% further discount. Renewals due in June so shall soon see what happens this year.
