  1. I managed to sort mine by switching everything off (including the black on/off button on the main power supply under the seat) for two minutes & restarting everything.
  2. Travelling out was manageable but coming back from Schipol was a nightmare. Personally I won’t do it again for a while. The confusion also surrounded the times for doing tests. 72 hours on one, 3 days but your first day is day 0 on another site. I could go on but it’s an experience I want to forget!!! And this morning I have woken full of cold so won’t be going anywhere until I’ve done my day 2 test. Now, is that day 2 from arrival on Friday, from this morning or 48 hours from the last full moon…….? 😂
  3. Yes, it was very unpleasant. It was almost comical when the airport publicise the need for social distancing but then cram everybody into the various queues like sardines.
  4. Just a few comments on my experience this week after a business trip to Holland. Trying to understand exactly what the requirements are ISN’T straightforward, it’s easy to think that it is until you actually start to review both countries Government web site advice and they contradict each other. This is compounded further when your travel company give you the WRONG advice! Due to the nature of our business I was exempt from the 10 day quarantine rule on arrival so armed with a mountain of forms I left a very quiet Birmingham airport with no dramas. There were one or two people desperately downloading forms after finding they didn’t have the right information. Holland is very relaxed on COVID now but masks are still required on public transport. The return journey from Schipol was utter chaos. If returning to the UK there are additional checks needed at the airport which are completely understaffed and unclear. I witnessed people crying and confused after being refused boarding due to having taken the wrong tests/wrong time etc. Airport/airline staff giving the wrong information. Huge queues. I always arrive early for flights but I didn’t even have time for a drink, the process was so slow and confusing. My advice to anyone thinking of flying anywhere is simply, don’t, but if you do, treble check and cross check what is required, allow LOTS of time and prepare for chaos. Never again.
  5. You could make it a condition of sale that before any money changes hands that the seller has a damp test (or full service which includes a damp test) carried out by a member of the Approved Workshop Scheme.
  6. Another happy Kampa Gale owner here. Very easy to use and efficient
  7. I’m currently sitting in Birmingham airport waiting for a flight but I’d sooner be sitting in the awning with a drink….. You can keep any other form of holiday destination unless I have to tow my own accommodation!
  8. The OP hasn’t visited here since asking the original question so perhaps decided otherwise
  9. Yes, we also use the Kampa/Dometic Gale pump on our Isabella Cirrus. It works really well.
  10. My own experience is that in Europe, caravans don’t have the “sad” image/label that we get in the UK. I don’t know what it is but colleagues from France, Germany and Holland see caravans as very outdoors/action but over here a lot view them as some sort of dreary pass time taken up by dull retirees who wear matching anoraks and sit in a field watching the rain. Personally I don’t care what anyone else thinks!
  11. The OP hasn’t been on the forum since June last year so we’ll probably never know.
  12. Spooky! Same poster, same question, 3 years between them!!!
  13. I ought to wear one on sunny days in case the glare from the sun reflecting from the top of my head dazzles oncoming traffic!
  14. We have had lots of Swift’s and one of them (2010 Swift Challenger 550) suffered a lot with the impeller seizing on the pump. Pulling it out and flicking the impeller with a screwdriver and a drop of oil cured it for a few months but it kept doing it. In the end I replaced it.
  15. I’m also an avid road cyclist, I do use cycle lanes BUT there are now lots of joint cycle lanes/footpaths and folks walking and day-dreaming plus dogs plus cyclists is a recipe for disaster!
