  1. Just picked our lovely new Alpina Colorado and having driven 70 miles back from the dealer I want to re torque the wheel nuts however I can’t find a figure anywhere in the plethora of paperwork that came with it, does anybody have this info.
  2. All done Ranger and Tow Bar (Tow Trust Multi Height) ordered.
  3. Thanks Towman nice looking outfit have you had any problems with the back end being firm? There is just so much conflicting information on the Internet, I assume you are happy with it? My towball is sitting at 500mm unladen am I to assume that your would be the same. cheers mark
  4. The existing Towbar has no adjustment and the only one with type approval with a drop plate is by Tow Trust, I have had a lengthy chat with their tech department who have been very helpful and sent tech drawings to me, with the drop on it's lowest setting it reduces the height unladen to 450 mm, as I don't have a van here I'm not sure how much lower this would be when coupled.......why are things so convoluted.
  5. Thanks Dave it’s as clear as mud
  6. I have had over 500 kilos in the back and it still sits at 500mm so still 80mm over height
  7. Just been out and measured the height of the factory fit towball on my new ranger wildtrack and it is at 520mm some 100 mm higher than you can use and Brink don’t provide a drop plate ........well that was a waste of money!
  8. Not easy to manoeuvre the van around the 90 degree turn into my drive without the tyres looking like they are going to come off the wheels, levelling is a pain no jacking points due to quad movers and getting the Alko locks to line up on 2 wheels.........
  9. After the trials and tribulations of a twin axle UK van we have decided to change for a single axle Adria Alpina....... wait for the barrage of abuse
  10. Thanks chaps will sort it by moving the saddle bracket
  11. Sitting writing this on site, all nice and tasty warm -4 outside and +20 inside so that’s a result, however I’ve been out this morning and the waste pipe that comes from the bathroom basin has leaked on further investigation this can only be down to poor quality control, as you can see in the picture the flexible pipe has sprung off from the rigid pipe and only seems to be a rubber flange that pushes over the rigid pipe but it only has about 5mm to push on, surely it needs more pipe to grip on and a jubilee clip to prevent it from springing
  12. Now we have just had a very windy weekend and last night thinking that we were going to take off and then the nightmare of taking down our Kampa Fiesta Air Pro 420, we have decided through the winter months when it can be very windy to buy a smaller porch awning, just something to dry the dog in and leave the muddy boots in maybe about 2m long, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  13. I have no idea but I’ve used them for years the only thing that does worry me I can stop but can the numpty going far to fast behind me on the phone eating a sandwich do the same
  14. Welcome to Blighty. .... I spent many years in Germany when my sister was in the forces and everybody had winter tyres it’s a no brainier and with your setup I expect to see you and said vehicle at the top of Snowdon 👍
