  1. im sure many we be along after me with better cameras, but ive got a standard camera and 7 inch monitor and they are both powered via the caravan 12v as i dont use the 2nd plug so my battery can be used, mines wired under the van to the hitch and another wire into the car and when we go away i simply link the wires and turn on in the caravan, works great no interference, some say its a faf but fine for me,, old v new [the bigger 1 is the new 1 and is much better]
  2. im very fussy so i do all work on my 2, my sierra and focus, only jobs the garage does is things like clutch and welding that im unable to all rest is done by me, i know my cars and i dont trust garages as seen too many mistakes, plus if i do it i know wots been done etc, i do my sierra at 3000mls and focus at 5000mls, i always do my oil changes warm as its thinner and runs faster so drains better, sierra will never be sold so im happy with that, its easy with basic tools
  3. lol yes i suppose, only mods are leccy windows and remote locking, cant add many pics as website wont let me, pm me if u like, 1.6 pinto all factory setup minus the above mensioned,,,,,,,,i will remove this post if people dont want it here
  4. i have a 1992 Ford Sierra 1.6 with 118000 for towing my small trailer and a 2004 Ford Focus 2.0 with 103000 for towing my 1050 mtplm Elddis Pamperos xl i get 32mpg on solo and no idea towing but it does do very well on fuel towing
  5. in ours the cooker is by the door, ive got the co detector above and the fire alarm is at the front above the bed, to be honest it never goes off unless i test it myself, must be lucky
  6. i have got a proper sky dish and use a sky box as you would in the house, and ive used sky q in the caravan too by changing the lnb, ive never used my card from home in there as we just used freeview and the signal is better than an aerial and quicker setup for us, boxes and dish very easy to get and setup, i ran wiring from tv points to the front locker under the van ready for each trip away, best thing i did
  7. i have a 2004 2.0 ford focus hatch and i tow my elddis pamperos xl, caravans mtplm is 1050 and car tows it very well, i find the newer caravan you go the bigger they are, yes obvious i know but even 2 yrs can make a difference, its a 5 berth 91 model, my focus limit is 1200 braked https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/caravan-data/lunar-lexon-575-eb-2008-caravan-specifications/ i personally wouldnt tow a van this weight with my focus,,,sorry edited this as it said would and i meant would not, my apologies
  8. not paranoid at all, mines on axle stands but wheels still on as both got wheel locks, i have the hitchlock on and a car blocking and locked gates and if not enough also 24hr cctv to my phone, only thing is maybe dont remove wheels and just put on stands as they could have a similar van and bring their own wheels, this is why i left mine on, takes 2 min for them to fit their own wheels but an age to remove your locks and wheels its insured too
  9. i know this is an old thread and sorry to drop in but if it helps, i have a sky dish we use in our old elddis, and we always setup and test at home before we go and i find the hedge in the garden can block the signal so moving my dish away from it helps a lot, just thought i would add this as i wouldnt of guessed if it hadnt happened to me, ive run the wires to 2 points in the van and we have a box each, standard sky dish on the tripod as seen on ebay works a treat every time and worked for 3 plus years
  10. hi sorry to ask such a strange question and im hoping this is in the right place, i have a 1991 Elddis Pamperos, and for the last 2 years after using online tyre pressure sites stating 45-50 psi, i just managed to get hold of a handbook and it states 35psi, im baffled why one would be so high or the manufacturer would be so low, i set my cars at 32 psi, its a 5 berth but only 2 of us use it so no risk of overload but am curious for safety
  11. congrats lazarus and congrats and amazing help and info kelper, im like u lazarus i would b determined to find out and sort this, i have an older 1992 elddis pamperos caravan [gremlin when we got it] and a old ford sierra and am always trying to diagnose things, fab job all that helped, ps replying back with updates is key yes absolutely
  12. following this as really hoping lazarus can sort this, sorry to pop in like this, hope u cure it best of luck to u both,
  13. i use the standard one for when the caravan is standing or on being towed and have a motorised 1 for moving the caravan cheap 2nd hand and easy to use,
  14. usually our first weekend away is Abergavenny but we didnt book as this happened around the time we would, ive been tinkering with the caravan today but its strange not being there now, still got the easter weekend off as per my job but also still in work normal times, im planning to book as soon as sites and lockdown reopen
  15. im probably miles out but binding breaks on that side?? i had a squeaky brake on my sierra front left but only after 20 min of driving and re copper greasing cured mine
