  1. Wooden top, it is butane. Thanks to all who replied.
  2. If the pigtail screws in most of the way by hand, it is a fair indication that the threads are ok.
  3. I needed to change my empty gas bottle today. I carry a spare. I had trouble connecting the pig to the full bottle, in fact it leaked when I turned the bottle valve on. After a few checks, I ascertained that the threads on the new bottle are defective. Does anybody think that it is worth buying a tap to clean up the threads and therefore having this handy tool for future thread clean ups in future or just bite the bullet and buy a new bottle? In future, I am going to take my spare serviceable pig with me when buying a full bottle as opposed to finding damaged threads when I next need to change bottles.
  4. We use 'cheap and nasty' battery lamps when not hooked up. They use AA batteries and help to keep your leisure battery from using unnecessary power.
  5. Are you allowed to use the word 'camp' without upsetting somebody?
  6. The couldn't care less attitude and sloppy repairs? are terrible. One thing that I will say is that I discovered a crack on the back panel of my caravan. I bought the van at Highbridge. I informed them about it and told them that by the time I could get the van to them, the warranty would be out of date. They told me to bring it to them when I could which I did and they carried out the repair as under warranty.
  7. A few slight variations there. Thanks all.
  8. I have watched the erecting of air awnings on Youtube etc. Some of the methods vary slightly. I will give the routine that I intend to use and await constructive criticism from you nice helpful folk out there! 1. Feed awning into track rail. 2. Peg out under van. (Fit draught poles at this point)? 3. Peg out far end corners. 4. Inflate. 5. Carry on pegging and securing guys. Looking forward to your routines.
  9. Had the same situation on one of our first trips. It was the drain valves open. Hope yours is the same. You remember next time you see it emptying underneath!
  10. The first part of my question was do you think that a hose down prior to using Fenwicks would be beneficial?

    Fenwick s

    The 2 part pack for washing a caravan.
  12. Hope that I am in the correct section. First of all. Although when looking at the cleaning demo on utube, they say that there is no need to wash the van first. Surely a quick hose down must be beneficial. Thoughts please. On another site, after spraying with Fenwicks, the van is given a quick clean up with a micro fibre cloth, probably a moist or wet one before applying the Bobby Dazler. On completion, should you polish the Bobby Dazler when dry?
  13. At this time, I cannot specify the measurements but we bought a Kampa pro air 260 which is a porch awning. You could go online or get the dimensions from a dealer. What I mean to say is that the Kampa 260 suits us and is a good fit for the Amara 380 (we too have a 380), a lovely van in my opinion.
