    different tow ball

    matelove i had a factory fitted tow bar and electrics, and apparently Ford did not connect the live wire to the 13 pin socket that allows the caravan battery to charge BRECKON is correct it has a factory fitted tow bar and electrics, and Ford did not connect the live wire to the 13 pin socket that allows the caravan battery to charge, unfortunately its going to cost more money putting a live wire to the plug aghhhh

  4. I have just bought a Ford Kuga (2012) it had a factory fitted tow bar and electrics with a 13 pin socket. The Light on the caravan did not turn to green when i connected the caravan. I bought an alignment tool (£1.99) thinking i had knocked the plug out of position. However just out of curiosity i called in the place where i had a previous tow bar fitted to get the electric thirteen pin plug checked out. When he put his tester on he said it showed no power going to the 13 pin plug. He reckons that Ford don’t wire these plugs up with the live power supply which charges the caravan battery, anyone got any views on this subject please

    different tow ball

    thanks matelove, i really havn,t checked the electrics on the ford kuga, just got it on monday. i do know on my previous car the green light (ATC )worked. however on the new car (a kuga) i am not sure if it is an after market or ford . even if the green light does not work, is it still safe to drive? as the hitch seems fully engaged. regarding the towball is there two different types, one for Alko and one for a different hitch

  7. hi, can anyone help? i have been using a alko towball on my previous car and my caravan has been moaning and growning, however I had changed my car which has a detachable tow bar, and when i hitch up up the green light on the caravan doesn't come on. has anyone any experience of this. I asked a caravan personand he told me there are two different types of towball, one of which is specific to Alko? any comment would be appreciated

    Maintenance

    john i was strongly advised by a caravan mechanic NOT to put WD40 on any locks as this enlarges the rubber, which makes it hard to turn keys
  9. thanks ian i will private message you
  10. Good Morning, I have just rang thetford to get a part for on of my caravan doors, (number four in the photo) I am absolutely furious. I was told I would have to buy a new door which would cost £59.52 for a part which would cost no more than 10p to make. I am quite prepared to pay for this part but am not going to pay nearly sixty pounds for something which costs coppers to make. Wouldn't you think This company would send this out free as a good will gesture.
  11. david you can order your lock on ebay, just search "Hartel lock" and order your key number and lock together, i got the same lock number as whats on so all locks are the same thats if its a hartel lock?
