  1. We are having issues getting on some sites because our Commodore is 8.16 mts long. Anyone out there with similar problems? Don't really want to have to swap to get below 8.0 !
  2. How did you actually remove the long Buccaneer embossed surround? I’m really getting into fixing blinds! 🤪
  3. Bought our SafeFills from the LPG Shop. I have at least three filling stations within 5 miles of our home. Remember 17p/day for us.
  4. Sounds daft but if your van is at home have you considered CCTV? This will not only add additional protection for the van but your home also. You can monitor 24/7 on your phone. Tons on the market and many DIY kits available.
  5. We finally decided to take the plunge and bought a SafeFill Cylinder. The initial purchase isn't cheap BUT we have just returned from a continuous 26 night trip, cooked every day and refilled the cylinder at Morrisons at a total cost of £4.41. It worked out at17p per day for all our cooking. We checked SafeFill's site and there are plenty of refill stations around. This does focus the mind when forking out the initial charge for the bottle! If you are a regular user do the maths and consider the convenience of filling the cylinder when you fuel up the car.
  6. Volvo for me. Pipe and slippers! Excellent.
  7. Casino Ash is their official colour description
  8. Blagged some from EHG for our 2020 Commodore FOC! Get your screwdriver out and move on!
  9. I was lucky, dealer gave me about 5 litres (or more) FOC as it saved them workshop time at £70 plus per hour. Happy days. My dealer is excellent!
  10. OK. Fixed the bathroom radiator leak (saved taking the 2020 van back as a warranty job). Draining and saving the prized Alde fluid is crucial. However I need some G13 to top up the tank. Alde fluid is exorbitantly expensive. Anyone used any other brand of G13 or an equivalent? Might try to blag some from the dealer as I save them about three hours of workshop time.
  11. We had a whiff of propane in our 2020 Buccaneer. Checked EVERYTHING! Bought two new hand wheel operated tails from a bottle gas company in HD (!) for under £20 - fixed. You dont say where or what the regulator is. Is it an auto change over or is it simply a standard regulator on the end of the tail. If its a new van then the issue if with your dealer. If there is no smell in the van then its my guess simply to swap the regulator and try again.
  12. Hello Sam, My real question is, how wide is the hose when flat? Suppliers min size seems to be 1''.
  13. We were away this weekend and needed to extend our water lay flat hose to reach the tap on a service pitch by connecting a length of blue rigid hose. How do you measure the size/diameter of the hose? Looked on the web and the smallest I can find is 1 inch. Is this the width of the hose when when flat or is it its working diameter when filled with water? When its pinched open it measures about 15mm - what you would expect to push onto a standard garden connector. What do you buy for this job? Cheers
  14. We have a big dog.!! Awnings (for us) are essential in summer and when it rains. Nuff said!
