  1. WispMan is spot on the only other thing I do is push the boost button on the whale panel which is time controlled.
  2. Unless per chance we leave early and create even more chaos at the start of the holiday period.
  3. Whilst away with our Elddis Supreme 550 in the last week we had an issue with the heating in strong winds and heavy rain. The site was an excellent CL but a bit exposed just above the shores of Loch Lomond. Late in the afternoon the heating went off and at first I thought it had reached our desired temperature of 19degs. but later wondered why it had not come back on. Checked the Ivan panel and it showed lockout error 5 suggesting the flues were blocked. Braved the weather to check but all clear. Reset as instructed went for 5 minutes and stopped again. This happened a few times so decided to set the heater on max setting for a spell then turned it back to moderate and no further problems. Next day we had a really strong gust on the flue side and got the same error again. I can only assume that some how this is causing the problem. The flues tubes are about 4 foot long and vent on the opposite side of the van from the heater. My question is has anyone else had this experience or is this purely down to wind and direction. Thanks.
  4. Agree Leedslad we are using the Hull to Zeebrugge this year on our way to Lake Garda and coming back via Amsterdam and Newcastle. Plan to go via Switzerland but yet to decide whether to use a tunnel or one of the passes.
  5. I agree it not easy changing the gas bottles or even putting small things in. I believe I saw somewhere that you can get longer struts which raise the cover higher . Now that LincsBob has reminded me I am going to have another look before I do myself a mischief. !
  6. We have an Elddis Supreme (Avante) 550 and had the same problem back at the end of September when we were away with the van. We contacted our dealer immediately who knew exactly what the problem was. Fortunately we had some wide waterproof tape among my tools I carry and placed it over the narrow gap where the windows hinge. Being black tape it was also hardly noticeable. It worked perfectly and no more water came onto the front ledge in the van. Whilst away I also discussed the fact that I would have a round trip of nearly 330 miles and could I use an Authorised Repairer only 14 miles away . They then contacted them and said everything was alright and they would despatch the necessary parts. My tape kept the van dry and everything was done within a few days of my return. To date there appears to be no further leaks. Dealers often get all sorts of criticism but on this occasion Preston Caravans and Crossburn Caravans in Peebles could not be faulted.

    We have a 2018 Elddis Supreme 550 (special Addition) and despite a few problems love the van. Minor problems aside repaired by myself our one warranty problem was repaired by our Local Authorised Repairer in conjunction with our dealer and saved a return journey of over 350 miles. I also had my Repairer do the first service at the same time and there were no additional problems that I was unaware off. If you trust the people you are dealing with then go ahead and enjoy the van as we do.
  8. My 2018 Elddis 550 is in at our Authorised repairer just now for the same thing along with a leaking front window rail and a shower door that came detached from the rail. Rollers unscrewed themselves somehow. Good job we like the van and its layout.
  9. With 8 litres of hot water in a 2108 Avante 550 that's the only way to shower but works perfectly after a few attempts.
  10. I think it is utter nonsense to have all these vent holes without proper covers over them to keep the water out. I complained and was sent what they call a deflector(three sided cover) to protect the vent behind the offside wheel. There are other vents with little or no protection throughout the floor which could in very wet days get water finding its way in. Whilst not quite the same imagine the floor of your car if they did the same and did not have ventilation via the dash.
  11. According to the Scottish Camping web site it is closed. It was a great site run by a croft owner and we went there several times many years ago
