  1. We used Exhaust Ejector Co when our main front window delaminated in our previous Bessacarr. Being not to far away I was able to drop it off on the morning and pick it up that afternoon. Great job done at a fraction of the cost of a new window. (I have no connection with the company)
  2. Hi gwallwin, Our 2017 Coachman has been waiting for exactly the same thing since early June as it is being dealt with as a warranty claim from Al-Ko. But, according to the dealer, Alko have not fully returned and therefore cannot deal with warranty claims. It appears the problem was caused by faulty shoes badly damaging the drums. Could it be there is a inherent problem with these brakes? I'm aware there was\is an on going problem with squealing brakes (which ours also suffered from) and surely at only 3 years old yours should be covered by warranty? (Assuming all Services have done to d
  3. Thanks Alde for the info. I'll give it a blast routinely as a matter of course. Won't do any harm anyway. I wonder how many don't bother, especially anyone whilst in hotter climates?
  4. Hi, Has anyone actually used the legionella function on the Alde wet system? if so, how often?
  5. Mine was due for renewal two weeks ago, again to cover two cars and the caravan. As non of them are going very far at this moment in time I also am leaving it till we can be out and about with ease. Why waste money! But I also have renewed club membership.
  6. Our previous Bessacar had the same problem occasionally. As Lockin says, a good clean always did the trick. Always worth a try.
  7. A Merry Christmas and here's to a trouble free touring 2020 to everyone. Thanks to everyone for the help an d advice on 2019. I'm sure there will be a lot more given in 2020. Have a "Good'un"
  8. Dog sleeps in front of it and covers it. He has his uses. This way we don't forget to uncover it when we go out.
  9. Andy, let me join you and make it 1 1\2 hours. mine evaporates faster than that... (That's my excuse to the wife anyway!)
  10. Hi, Due to vans being stolen and things going missing ie. batteries from were we stored our van we have decided to keep it at home. Apart from better security, this also gives us the opportunity to have the van heating on low over winter to keep away the dreaded damp and condensation. Hence my query, to what temperature would you recommend to set the van thermostat for the best? The heating is the Alde wet system. As always your valuable advice is always appreciated. Cheers, Yorkshire man.
  11. Had the battery stolen whilst van in storage. Thieving so & so's stole a few others at different times. They even had the cheek to put cables back and lock the compartment door so the theft wasn't noticed for a while.
  12. If you find you need the packing pads between the van and the air tubes (ours fits better with them on our 2017 Coachman) don't buy the overpriced (very overpriced) Kampa pads. Get down to a cheap shop and buy a kneeling pad and cut that up. It's a lot cheaper (you can tell I'm a Yorkshire Man) and they last a lot longer. + You don't get too upset when they go missing.. have a good weekend.😁 Got to agree with ReggiePerrin on this. Most of mine have broke but I have repared them with superglue (other adhesives are available!) and they have lasted longer than
  13. I did the same as Granpa Steve. Works a treat.
  14. Obviously it wasn’t closed when we came over it. 🤔 Plenty of others using it on Tuesday.
