  1. Indeed, there are lots of contradicting reports out there we have to wait and see but with so many smart meters on the network you have to think it will not just be switched off, rather it be limited. Swift have said they are closely monitoring the situation, however it should be noted this is only a small individual module and does not impact the caravan electronic control unit so unless a user wishes to subscribe to the remote functionality or the tracker (from 2017 on) then a replacement module would be a very straightforward job and no reason it’s an expensive one either.
  2. Ah! Zoho is a CRM (customer relationship management) tool and it would appear this ‘renewal email’ would be part of its functionality based on subscriptions - but I do get what you mean. I suppose it could be related to most cloud based apps these days including the likes of Quick Books, Xero (accounting software) etc sending out company invoices/purchase orders within the cloud domains and not a companies domain. Always wise to be cautious mind you ;-) Regarding 2G I will ask the question of Swift if the existing Comms modules will continue to work after 2G is ceased, I would hope the answer is just a new SIM card or even its already 3G/4G ready (hardware dependant). I wonder if 2G will be shutdown as Voda/EE report or will it drag on beyond 2030 as many report. 🤔
  3. Swift Command may be your friend in diagnosing if there is an issue - if you use the diagnostic function (put simply the power icon) it can tell you precisely the load at 12v (and 240v for that matter). It will also show input such as solar too.
  4. Login here; https://www.swiftcommand.co.uk/login The website was updated earlier this year - why is the link dodgy, can you share it? 2G is around for some time yet, 10 years or so I believe.
  5. There should be a screw under the red label, like this here;
  6. Is there another local Swift approved dealer/centre who will take on the warranty work? Swift can help identify one, or check yourself here; https://www.swiftgroup.co.uk/find-a-dealer/type/repairer
  7. It really does sound like your dealer is behaving rather badly! It is of no significance to them if you have your warranty performed by any other approved Swift centre/mobile engineer et al - As LE suggested above, contact Swift as soon as possible and explain your predicament. The first thing to ask is if they have record of your service - if they do great, if they don’t send them proof of the services and get the warranty up,to date soonest. Do keep us posted how you get on and fingers crossed!
  8. Have you tried using the whale aqua source (or similar) direct connection? Example link below from Prima Leisure, basically it will remove the pump from the equation and has built in pressure reduction. If you do try this idea it’s worth checking all the connections inside the caravan are all sound and switch off the tap outside when not about - as good as they are (and I use one) I have known them to cause leaks/burst pipe work on some vans and that is always a risk to be aware of. https://www.primaleisure.com/product/1132029?utm_source=google&utm_medium=surfaces&utm_campaign=shopping feed&utm_content=free google shopping clicks
  9. Has it always done this? Why no leisure battery fitted out of interest? It looks like it’s switching between battery (if one was fitted) and PSU - presumably as the LED alone is not enough current. I recon a battery installed may just sort it.
  10. No one is offended Linda, it was not a personal comment but many thanks for popping back and updating, glad to hear your sticking around. Welcome aboard!
  11. Not sure if this is any help; https://www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/topic/25794-vanette-cooker-and-hob/
  12. Welcome to the forum 😊 When on leisure battery only (no mains) does is still behave like this or is it ok? Is there a label/make on the PSU you can share?
  13. Swift Command 👍 its sure in the right area of the forum.
  14. Agree, my Calor source tells me it’s not been lifted so another retailer is doing as they please 😉 5kg patio only.
  15. For such a short timeframe maybe you could use ice blocks to help maintain the fridge temp overnight during power outage? Or find a cheap/used LPG refrigerator (and sell after)? Don’t get me wrong there are lots of sexy solutions out there but the cost will just be hideous! For such a short time it’s just not worth it, is it? Your power usage will also be key to generator size/needs. Some generators are designed for long runtimes but they tend to be more expensive, cheaper occasional generators will need constant top ups of fuel - LPG may even be a consideration with auto changeover giving you the buffer between deliveries? Have a chat with some portable power companies and pick their brains.
