  1. Thanks for the replies everyone! I love the stair carpet idea - will show my better half when she gets back in! Making a template from cardboard etc seems a good idea - may use that if the boss decides to go with the Lino!
  2. After taking up the old (replacement carpet) in order to carry out he drilling, glue injection and dowels insertion to fix a spongy floor! My better half went to see a local company thet does caravan carpets. They said they want us to have Lino fitted - so that they can take it up and use thais as a template for the carpets - bound edges etc. Is it necessary to have Lino or underlay fitted ? If yes, what is the recommended method (if any) for securing the Lino to the flloring? Cheers, Vinny.
  3. 2005 Lexon, when I have looked in the service compartment - I noticed a pair of electric wires that appeared to have corroded away from somewhere? I can only imagine they are part of a low level flush warning system? They look as though there should be a small (9volt?) battery box to power them - is this correct? Cheers, Vin.
  4. I have tried a 32 mm plastic push fitting blanking plug and that fits quite snugly! https://www.wickes.co.uk/FloPlast-WP30W-Push-Fit-Waste-Socket-Plug---White-32mm/p/431925
  5. Thanks for the reply, what Wattage did you use?
  6. I think the interior lights could do with being brighter, so am looking at maybe using LEDs inside the existing light fittings. My first question regarding this is how do you get to the bulbs in the first place? I have tried to turn the ring that goes around the centre (glass) - but it does not appear to want to turn? This ring appears to be flush with the van ceiling and does not look as though it will pop off straight downward? Am I missing something obvious here?
  7. Robbie, where did you buy your stuff from?
  8. As per title, I am considering adding an additional locker door to the rear of my 2005 Lunar Lexon. We tend to have the rear made up as a bed - which makes getting to the under seat storage somewhat difficult! So I thought I would explore the idea of getting a locker door for each side and gaining access from otside? What do people think, is it a good idea? Would it affect the structural strength ?
  9. Thanks for the replies guys, I will go round to see them and try to get a quote.
  10. Hi all, we have had a damp report that has identified 2 areas at the rear top of our van reading 80% ! Does anyone know of a good place to take the van to have it repaired? Just found this place quite close by, anyone used them?

  11. When you have "fixed" the ingress of water - how do you intend to get the water / damp out of the side wall? I am wondering because the outside will now be watertight and many internal coverings appear to be covered in a vinyl type paint / covering which is waterproof - so how do you get the water in between them out?
  12. With a bit of luck we may have found the problem! It looks like it was a fuse blown! The mains was ok, the charger was ok, but battery flat (new battery). So the fuse has been replaced, and the van has been on charge for a couple of hors before we put it back in storge. So when I have charged it fully, I hope the mover is OK! Thanks for your input guys!
  13. Many thanks for the replies guys! I should have said that I have recently (only a few weeks ago) fitted a new 115 amp leisure battery and replaced the batteries in the remote control unit, I tried to re-sync the handset with the control unit as per the manual I downloaded - with limited success. The mover seems only to want to drive the nearside wheel! Which is ok, if I want to do that ! But not very helpful otherwise! The van is in storage - so I will have to make a visit with a voltmeter to check the condition of the charge of the battery. I will also try to check the cables to the mover to see if they are corroded / frayed etc. I will post back what I find. Thanks again to all who responded.
  14. This may seem like a daft question , but I will ask anyway? Will my Lunar Lexon DS 2005 have a built in battery charger? If it does - where is it and how can I access it? I assumed it would and therefore thought when I was on mains hook up - either on site or at home - that the leisure battery would be charging! I have had some problems with my motor mover and just thought that the battery may not be being charged and therefore unable to power the mover!
