  1. sorry I panic'd when seeing this a s well, worked after doing a hard reset, killing the electric power to van and starting once again
  2. This Caravan Is a Beauty, we have enjoyed it enormously the 2 berth it is. .... . .well not letting anyone else in it !
  3. Now taken delivery of the 840, and I'm impressed (first Caravan) had my first weekend away in it, second next week, though at storage site & camp site, so don't need to take it on the road's. Need to sort out longer mirrors as was daunting as I had the them too short to see behind caravan.
  4. After chatting yesterday at NEC ive now ditched ALKO and gone with Nemesis Ultras
  5. After chatting with someone today at the NEC about ALKO vs Nemesis, and seeing how difficult ALKO is to fit on a twin axle without a motor mover I’ve gone with Nemesis Ultra, the C&CC has it on their insurance page when applying so hopefully it gets the discount, but for the cost of £295 (ALKO) vs £129 (Nemesis) per lock for a £32 saving if not getting 10% discount, I’m sold on Nemesis .
  6. also do you need to have 2 for the twin axle or can you get away with 1 for the insurance ?
  7. im getting a twin axle caravan - do I need 2 alko locks for insurance purposes, or get away with one ?
  8. If I buy a calor 6kg empty on eBay for £20, can I just swop for full at £21, at a garage or do I need to show a rental agreement when doing so ?
  9. Been told it's on it final inspection on Friday Hopefully have it soon.
  10. If I buy off ebay a wheel lock second hand, then buy the correct insert from AL-KO, can I register with AL-KO the old locks to my caravan ?
  11. Look forward to your review of it, got one due in Nov-Dec, also going to Elddis open day at their factory on 16th September, to find out what ALKO kit is needed for 2018 model

  13. C ) Bushcraft workshops Admin comment: Sorry Desktopcommando. This competition was for tickets to the February 2017 show at the NEC so is now closed. We should have locked the thread off soon after but for some reason it didn't happen.
