  1. Anyone have sources for alternative brand replacement caps for aquaroll, I'm not bothered about having the plastic lead\lanyard fitting. I keep loosing caps, perhaps some of them are being liberated by persons unknown, discount card price at one retailer is £6.30, a bit steep for a plastic cap .
  2. to Squash for his neat plastic channel idea and to CJ1149 for his tool clips suggestion. The above ideas led me to decide on 50mm dia solvent weld pipe and plastic pipe clips, all in it will cost less than £10.00 from https://www.toolstation.com/solvent-weld-waste-pipe-3m/p32373?searchstr=50mm solvent https://www.toolstation.com/search?q=50mm waste pipe clips My existing 3m X 32mm pipe will fit inside my 3mX 40mm pipe and they in turn will slide into the new 50mm pipe that will be supported by 4 clips. Mounted to the underside of the floor on the offside, I will have the acccess end flush with the rear panel of the caravan and a simple 'r-clip' to hold the internal pipes in place. Thanks for the replies.
  3. I'm looking for ideas for securing plastic drainage pipe to the caravan, I have 2 lengths of pipe of different diameters, the smaller diameter pipe fits inside the larger diameter pipe, it is this type of set-up as illustrated in the following link. https://caravanchronicles.com/2013/05/26/connecting-your-drainage-on-serviced-pitches/ In my case the pipes are quite long so would need to be secured on the long side of the caravan chassis or mounted to the underside of the caravan floor. Hoping you can give me suggestions that make removing and stowing the pipes simple and easy and prevent the pipe(s) coming adrift in transit. John
  4. Was down Manchester area fairly recently, including for a couple of 20 minute rest stops I would allow for 6 hours.
  5. I am using an older Huawei E5330 BS, it is 3g. It has worked perfectly (assuming there is a signal to get hold of), I am using it with a 3mobile sim card, not everywhere has a 3 mobile signal, perhaps spare sim's from other providers is an option, never used an external aerial but I assume they would be beneficial. It seems to me they all will work if you have a signal and the price does not mean you will have a better signal, I am not planning on replacing the one I have as it works just fine, I have allowed two other people to pair with the device without any problems other than increased data usage.

  7. Plentyof options online, an appropriate adhesive for the panel mounts and the cable shroud is a necessity. Link
  8. Yes David, I hope to return next year. As to 'what as', hmmm- that needs further thought .
  9. Arrived home from Pickering a few hours ago, really glad that I went to this event, so very enjoyable. Caravan site turned into a quagmire, 230 units on site I was told, 2 tractors very busy getting folks on and off the site. A really well run event site organised by the Caravan & Camping Club, marquee with live entertainment, fantastic stewards (xxx to you all), lots of other nice touches provide by the C&C club - well done C&C. A great weekend and highly recommended. BTW, I inadvertently ascended the hairpin at Sutton Bank with the caravan in tow, the experience did make me concentrate a lot until I got over the top. Hoping no one has me on camera . East Yorkshire DA, Thank you. John (Glasgow)
  10. Is this what you are looking for, I've linked to both long and short versions. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/153623722012?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=153623722012&targetid=522577553903&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007355&poi=&campaignid=1782815751&mkgroupid=70885937682&rlsatarget=pla-522577553903&abcId=1139356&merchantid=118933446&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInYiZuvyE5QIVi7TtCh3Zxw4ZEAkYASABEgLfEPD_BwE https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/153623721986?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=153623721986&targetid=594652408680&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007355&poi=&campaignid=6466521578&mkgroupid=83097927491&rlsatarget=pla-594652408680&abcId=1140486&merchantid=118933446&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInYiZuvyE5QIVi7TtCh3Zxw4ZEAkYAiABEgIkp_D_BwE
  11. So far I have I have had only good dealings with C&CC managers, a polite approach is what is expected (as I would expect), even had the site managers ask me what view I would like (Glencoe) and invited me to pitch nose in if I preferred, play the game chums, the site managers are deserving people just like us, not servants . If you find a 'baddy' report them, but only if they have been 'out of line'. Our lives are too short, same goes for the site managers
  12. I tow a single axle Bailey Pegasus GT65 Ancona, car is a W212.
  13. That is a very sensible decision arty 25, enjoy your van.
  14. I think an injury compensation claim would be successful in this case.
  15. We cannot tell exactly how much gas you used on each appliance, everyones usage will vary as you know. Your usage does not seem at all unreasonable at under a litre of gas per day.
