  1. Hi thanks for the response, but I fixed the problem simply by straightening the door catch, simple, nothing to do with condensation or micro switch’s or greeting anything up Thanks ours has the same light sensor, problem fixed though by straightening the door catch pin, simple
  2. Dear All, not sure if the following will help anyone but we hope so. The story so far. We own a 2014 Lunar Clubamn SR, not that the Van has ought to do with the problem we have been experiencing. It did come with a Dometic TALL slim fridge and for want of a better word supposed freezer, the freezer does freeze but I’m guessing you know what I’m alluding too. In around October last year - 2019 our fridge on the odd occasion would alarm, beeping madly for twenty seconds or so then stopping. At first I thought (as you would ) that the door was open, so we would open and close it and the alar
  3. Thanks for your input, the location is possibly okay how ever a lower siting of the actual thermostat would be better, it can be 28 degrees at head height but cold at knee heights when sitting in the lounge I appreciate the difficulties but when the cooker is on the lounge area is warm whilst the bedroom is freezing, my suggestion would be somewhere lower and maybe in the bedroom area of a clubman Sr Thank you for the response however, However the lounge in the Sr and at head height does not create consistency indeed it creates inconsistencies because at head height it can run easily
  4. Hi people, help needed, we have a 2017 lunar clubman SR which has the Aldi heating system installed, it may be a daft question but here goes. Q. The small control panel (3” x 3”) for the hot water / heating system is located inside the door as you enter the van at head height, is the thermostat for the heating located inside that small panel, OR, is there a thermo probe located somewhere els in the van? if there is another prob does anyone know where that might be? As always your help would be greatly appreciated
  5. Yep, we think that’s the way of it, but as I said, up to now there have been no repercussions for staying longer than 90 days, I’ve even attempted to find out what exactly the penalties might be via various government websites but to no avail , it appears that historically there are no fines, no imprisonments and no president, I was hoping that someone might have an idea. The are thousands of people in Europe on long stay breaks, that is longer than 90 days, ah well.
  6. On behalf of our friends I would like to thank those of you that gave a positive response
  7. So here we are again, the dreaded Brexit, we have friends who are currently in sunny Spain, and they’re panicking about Brexit so here’s the outline of the question or possibly questions. normally, apparently the law says that you can only spend 90 days in 180 days in Europe, up until now most people have ignored this fact and so have the authorities, BUT, and here’s the rub, with Brexit possibly kicking in tomorrow will the blind eye stop? Will the authorities take people to task for going over the 90 term, and if so what are the penalties likely to be. DOES ANYONE KNOW, whilst t
  8. Well well, happy days, I only say that because we thought we had a problem with our Theford Aspire 2 grill, clearly we don’t or at least we’re not alone with our 25 minute not coloured-up toast, it must be Thefords way of attempting to keep us all healthy, unfortunately what’s good for your health is not necessarily good for the environment because as we attempt to slightly colour our toast the gas is running for hours. Maybe some one might come up with a booster for the grill, just a little more pressure at the burner end of the grill perhaps. At least we know that Theford are not on the ca
  9. Great thank you both for the responses, 2 x 6 mtr lengths it is then, I’ll put the front cover on for trolling with, and simply remove the awning side when we’re on site.
  10. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your comments, van sorted no more shocks still no idea
  11. Hi everyone, yes this is your opportunity to aid and assist a moron with a fairly simple problem “to cut or not to cut?” And, if you cut “where to cut”. Also, “to cover the front ?” Or, “not to cover the front” So here it is. We own a Lunar Clubman SR, 7.2 Mtrs in length, the awning rail being considerably longer taking into account the up drop and the down drop, we also own a front cover and I have just purchased an awning strip witch is 12mtrs in length. I purchased the strip with this in mind, we are about to travel to Spain for a well earned break. Under normal circumsta
  12. Hi all, assistance required if possible. We’re just about to take our 2017 Lunar Clubman SR in for its second service tomorrow, whilst cleaning every thing out yesterday a got a shock, yep, I mean a real shock albeit very small, at first I thought it might have been static but I took my electrical tester out this morning and put the live stabby little pin, I’m not an electrician, I put it on the metal plate I believe this is aluminium in the gas locker which sits at the rear of the gas bottles and I put the negative little stabby pin on the tester on the metal hinge on the locker
  13. Hi all, I guess this has been talked about before but I thought I’d raise the topic again. Caravan levellers, NOT, I hasten to add the plastic block types, but the Bulldog, Milenco type. I appreciate that they are hard to use, I also appreciate that although the manufacturers say you can use a rechargeable drill, you can’t, that is unless you’re lifting your child’s plastic John Deere trailer. And, I know you need a ratchet type wrench to effect the lift, however, does anyone out there have any experience using on of these and if so how do they perform, please
  14. I would like to thank you all for taking the time and trouble to reply, I’m off to the local brewery shop to get some acid, cheers
