  1. Thanks everyone for your very positive replies, it’s sooooooooh difficult to spend money now I’m 65, when I was 32 spending never bothered me a bit
  2. Hello everyone out there, SWMBO and I hope this note finds you all looking forward to getting out and about in the summer time? I wonder if any one out there has any feedback on the above awnings? We currently have a full size Isabella awning but I’m looking for something a bit smaller, Max 4 mtrs in length, preferably air that’s easier to go up. I’m considering the outdoor Rev sport lite 400, help please regards johnny
  3. Once again thanks for all your comments, they’re all valid and helpful, cheers👍
  4. I traded mine in for a discovery 4, great car never had any problems towing the juggernaut or the van
  5. I had a 2013 C220 AMG, lovely car, we pull a Lunar Clubman SR, changed it for a Landrover Discovery, much more practical, mine merc didn’t like getting caught on wet grass with your the van on the back, especially if a small incline was involved, but I guess that covers most vehicles.
  6. Ladies and Gentlemen, anyone out there using one of the above, we currently use an isabella on our Lunar Clubman, great awning in fact, exceptional, however, it’s a bit much for weekends or short two / three week stays, so I’ve been looking at alternatives, I’ve considered Air Awnings but I’m concerned that when erecting there is no give in height adjustment leading to the awning looking pretty rough if the ground is unlevel, now I know you’re going to say nothings perfect, but, SWMBO, likes things need and tidy, with that in mind I’m now erring towards poles, now we spent a lot of money on th
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. On behalf of our friends I would like to thank those of you that gave a positive response
  13. 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
  14. 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
