  1. Thanks gepete but this isn't a range it's a newer model so it's all GRP internal not lie the rangers that had internal wood board to use.
  2. Would that not mean taking a small hole and making a bug whole ot get those on the other side to accept the screw?
  3. I don't mind it coming out but if it damages a large part of the GRP inner might be expensive to fix. Will the No nails not do a job on the back of the plastic to bond the two pieces together?
  4. We have a few screws that have came out. The first are the 4 holding in the table holders in the wardrobe I think seller musn't haven't put table back properly I picked it up should have checked and it's pulled screws out of GRP so I need to fix that. There is also one that has came out of a blind. Now since it's internal GRP you can't just put screw in as no wood to hold the screw. I am just wondering should I put some sealant in the wholes of some sort. Then add some no nails to back of fixing insert screws and push against no nails to bond it to a large part of the wall itself? Any other suggestions? My only worry about idea above is if the no nails holds and table pulls too hard and damages more of the inner GRP. Any ideas?
  5. Thanks my van is currently nose up so would this cause an issue the same as you had? I am trying to think if it would but not saying a little angle under there might work.
  6. Hello I have recently bought a 2017 Bailey Palermo, it had it's service a few days before and all clear. No issues in damp report. On Wednesday the rain was super heavy so wanted to double check no leaks. The internal of van was fine. The rear of the van was wet on the floor externally. Someone suggested it may be roof strap. Anyway it still has ingress so need to take it to find someone who will do warranty repairs as often dealers only interested if it's their van. Bailey have said they are happy for someone to take a look and see if anything needs repairing. When I want back today noticed the whole rear gasket was missing(middle section). Would not having the gasket cause water ingress and if so to what extent? The offside rear corner was worse but it also moved up the van on that side towards the wheels. Today popped back and has dried out on the whole readings 15 to 20 when measured from underneath so drying out already.
  7. Today we review the stunning 8ft Swift Super FB 2021. We think this is the best familyvan on the market if you have a large family. A great size van for all the family and some new touches in 2021. https://youtu.be/TbmQ7MUJW1k
  8. Hi, I hope people don't mind. We got this wheel clamp and have been so impressed with it that we made a review of it. We kept it a few weeks to make sure it was as good as people say. I wish that I had found it quicker than 3 years into touring. I no longer dread getting that other wheel lock off. Here we are doing a time trial between my new wheel lock and the old wheel lock.
  9. Its right hand side of the toilet itself. In my caravan the toilet is in the middle washroom on one side. The wall board is GRP so can't get a reading on that. Today going to get seal to replace that on cassette. Then will be having a look at weekend to see if I can discover that is going on.
  10. Thanks. I have noticed some leaking down below in the cassette area so it could well just be that. I will see if can do that at weekend. Do you think it's ending up on floor somehow which isn't a nice thought thinking about it. I was thinking fill tank leak but don't want to have to remove toilet really if can get away with it.
  11. We have a Swift 586 2015 caravan. We bought it last July. Around Nov last year I noticed that the right side of the toilet was a bit high on readings over 20. I therefore made sure to fully empty flusher tank etc and heated the bathroom a lot. I got the reading back to sensible. We have just been away in the van for around 2 weeks and the readings on the floor are again high highest is 27. I am trying to work out what is causing this? I never physically see anything go onto floor that isn't cleaned up quickly. Anyone any ideas and easy ways to check rather than taking to a engineer who may charge quite a bit?
  12. Thanks for that Dave. I think the 2016 may be a MK3 but that sounds good about the 2012 a dealer near here has one but it's not in yet so wondering whether to go for it or wait for a MK2 facelift. Both same power I think just made other changes apparently.
  13. I would like a 2013 MK2 Facelift Kia Sorento as like look of them and apparently they rebuilt them to make them better to tow with. Did anyone have a 2010 to 2013 model then have a MK2 facelift if so is the Facelift so much better to tow with than the original MK2?
  14. I really like the look of the Touareg can pick up a 12 plate 40K for 16K but that seems a canny bit of money for an 8 year old car. Also not sure about reliability on them as this is why XC90 is going.
  15. Yes I think Swift ditched the 6FB edition they had with Alde(625) and changed to the L shaped lounge which is nice but we have three children so that model means set up two beds each night
