  1. Cadeside or Exeter Racecourse if you’re in the club.
  2. I think you will find that you could override the limiter.
  3. I've been doing this for years using an iPad with an Apple Lightning to HDMI connector which also has a power connection. The cable isn't cheap (It's Apple!) but I would be wary of a a non Apple unit. Except ===== If you have the latest iPad with USBC then the cost of the cable is much higher. There is a good quality Anker alternative but it doesn't have the power throughput. Another alternative is an Apple TV (series 3 and above I think) and Airplay to it. You don't need a network, I think it's called personal hotspot or peer to peer. Should have said that I use it to play stuff from my iTunes library.
  4. Not so. If OP is permanently on mains then a leisure battery is not needed. No need for deep cycling. Constant top up like a regular car is ok.
  5. U2 tyres were often remoulds and were not generally bothered by the low temperatures usually found above 60,000 feet.
  6. I agree with the above. To my mind, the heaviest task is emptying the waste master. By its very nature you are carrying a good half of the weight yourself. Emptying it twice a day would help there. Also, many CL owners are happy for you to empty the grey water in the hedges so that is another thing to consider.
  7. Got the car today. The circuit for trailer control is active. Thanks for all your help.
  8. Or go to Saga insurance for £230 for exactly same cover as MCC for £410!
  9. Van is just filament lights. Was concerned that car is LED lights but it seems my setup won’t be a problem.
  10. Thanks for that. I found that the MCC insurance doesn’t accept BMW’s stability control for a discount. I was therefore faced with a bill of up to £1500 to have the car wiring ‘completed’ or just have the discount taken off my insurance and pay an extra £85 a year which would have been my choice.
  11. It seems that the BMW factory fit towbar has its own stability function so my insurance would not be affected.
  12. I know that the BMW factory fitted towbar comes without the fridge or battery charging connected but I'm a little concerned about the Alko Trailer circuit. Is there anyone who can tell me what the situation is? I'm thinking of an X3 but I think the answer would be the same for any recent car. Many thanks in advance.
  13. Great. Many thanks for those quick replies. one less thing to worry about.
  14. I seem to remember that there have been problems in the past with LED road lights. Am I right in remembering that the problems arose when the caravan had LED road lights? We're changing our tow car next week and I don't want any problems to crop up after we've paid! Our van is a 2011 Bailey Unicorn Seville and we've never had any problems before.
